    Note: You will need a tooth pick, paperclip or similar item to press the reset switch.

    Please click on the images to show large versions.

    Disconnect the power supply from your DroiX X3. Using the tooth pick, locate the A/V port (as shown in the image below) on the DroiX X3 and gently insert the tooth pick. You will feel a button press, keep this button held down.

    While the button is remained held down, connect the power supply and the blue LED will light up.

    During this first reboot, the process may take longer than usual to boot. This is perfectly normal as the device is installing the operating system.

    Once the device is on the Welcome / Set up screen it is now ready to use.
