Samsung Galaxy W / GT-I8150 Recovery Mode / Hard Reset

While switched off, keep the following buttons pressed. Release the power-button once the Samsung Galaxy W(I8150) is switched on and keep pressing the Home- and Volume Up-button.



As soon as you see the Android with the box, release the Home- and Volume Up-button............................................ ......................



After you hit the menu-button shown on the last image, the screen will gray out, you will have to wait until the recovery menu appears.

-reboot system now
Reboots the system.
-apply sdcard:update.zip
Install diverse updates like themes, custom roms etc.
-wipe data/factory reset
Deletes all the apps, data and system settings(Files on the external SD-card will stay untouched)
-wipe cache partition
Only wipes (formats) /cache partition (sometimes used as temp storage for updates, market downloads, etc) it hasn't anything common with Dalvik-cache which is in /data by default and it implies that the following boot after wiping cache partition will not be any longer than usually.

Hi!

Please, help me

I have forgot the screenlock pin. I wanna do a factory reset but I can't because asking for a pin code (I suppose it's the same as the screenlock pin)

I have installed CWM recovery 6.0.5.1. When I select "wipe data/factory reset" it isn't asking for password anymore but it gave me an error. "Can't mount data/... Can't format data/"
So, I can't do a factory reset.

What can I do now ?

Thanks in advance!
