Hey, I'm Donald Bell and in this How-To, I'm gonna show you the process for erasing and restoring an Android Honeycomb tablet.
It's something you should probably do if you're returning a tablet back to a store, selling it, or gifting it to somebody else.
Step 1, make sure you've backed up anything important from your tablet.
Connect it to your computer over the USB cable that's included with the tablet and drag over any photos or videos that you may have taken on the tablet as well as any notes or documents that you wanna hang on to.
If you're not around a computer, you can also e-mail yourself any of the documents.
Step 2, remove any memory cards you may have inserted into the tablet.
If these cards are yours and you're not passing along to the next owner, this is a good reminder to get them out of the tablet.
Step 3, you wanna locate the factory data reset option.
So far, Android 3.0 is pretty consistent about where you'll find this.
On Android 1.0 or 2.0 devices, you'll have to do some hunting within the settings menu.
For Honeycomb, open up the pane in the bottom right corner and expand to see all of your settings, or you can open up your apps from the top right corner and tap settings from the All Apps tab.
Now the reset option is going to be under the privacy tab.
Once you found it, select it, and confirm that you wanna erase all the data on the device and restore the tablet back to its original factory settings.
Once the tablet reboots, you should see the same setup screen that appeared when you first took the tablet from the box.
Leave it blank, shut it down, and pack it up.
Your job is done.
