Question [Q] How to do a hard reset on the Samsung Galaxy S 2 Skyrocket?

Does anyone know how to perform a HARD reset on Samsung Galaxy S 2 Skyrocket? I know how to do a soft reset, but need assistance with HARD reset.

I also know that it will probably require the pressing of volume up/down and power, etc. but just do not know the combination.

Any help will be appreciated.

Power off phone. Pull battery (not necessary but wth)

Put battery in
hold volume up and down at same time while pressing power button.

When phone vibrates release power button.

There should be an option in the recovery menu.

My understanding of a soft reset is simply power cycling the phone.

You can also hard reset in the phones menu

Menu.settings.privacy.factory reset
