Im just opening this thread to let any new Galaxy S5 owners know to be very careful when trying to do a Hard Reboot by holding all the buttons down for 10 seconds (volume up and down, power key, and home key). This is known to cause a factory reset to occur upon device restart. Im currently looking into a solution to doing a reboot for an unresponsive device with out a battery pull, but for now a battery pull is the best solution.

Thanks,
Chris
