No problem follow the steps bellow to factory restore you Galaxy note 10.1

- Turn Off your Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 device.

- Wait for 10 seconds, Then move to the next step.

- Press and hold Volume Up key + Power key.

- Keep pressing the above keys until the Samsung Logo appears,Then release Power key only.

- When you see Factory reset / System Recovery menu on screen release the Volume Up Key.

- Use Volume Down key to select Wipe Data / Factory Reset option.

- Use Power key to confirm the operation.

- You need to use the Volume Down key again to select "Yes -- delete all user data"

- Use Power key to confirm.

- After performing the hard reset, Select Reboot System Now option, And confirm it using Power key.

- Now the phone will reboots, Wait for it to be fully on and then you can start using it.


Notice: The Hard Reset / Factory Reset operation will delete anything that are saved in your phone's internal memory, So make a backup of your data in case you can access them.

Keep in mind that factory reset means you get to keep whatever ROM you installed on it, recovery, etc. You only delete your apps and personal settings. For that you can also go into Settings and either in Apps or Storage you'll find the option to do a reset.

If your goal is to restore the device to it's factory state, meaning you need to restore the original recovery and OS, you'll need these files and a method to flash them back on the device. Once you've installed a custom OS and recovery you don't have these on the phone's storage anymore.

Read my initial answer; at this point it is safe to assume you did not perform a backup of the original ROM (even though on every single custom ROM tutorial I have read there is a strong advise to do so). Your only recourse is to re-read these tutorials carefully, explore xda-developers site and find the files you need and the procedure to do so. I would hint that you might need to use Odin for a complete factory-state restore.

I got this tablet with the custom ROM already installed and I couldn't find a backup on the device. I have looked on the internet on how to get the stock ROM but cant find out how to. Do you know any websites that have the stock ROM?

Thank you Shaun, worked for me - I had a seemingly "lesser" problem - it is the second time that the touch screen function of my Samsung note 2014 stopped working - then it only works with the stylus, not with touch, previously had to take it in to dealer to have "repaired" Just a question, my son plays a "real steel" game which requires frequent swipes of the finger across the screen - can this be the cause of this recurring problem?

Hi Shaun,

Thanks for that tip. I've tried this approach several times without luck. I can do the Volume Down + power to the custom OS and restart options, but not the reset. The system never returns a logo, just the Samsung GALAXY NOTE 10.1 screen.

Sure could use another option. Anything else in your bag of tricks?

Make Sure you press both the Power and "Up-volume" buttons at the same time...then when you see the Samsung Logo screen...release the power button only and keep holding down the up-volume button until you see the RESET Options Screen.

Hey Shaun,

Your solution didn't work for me but It worked when I tried [POWER] + [VOLUME UP] + [HOME BUTTON]

What keeps going over and over again?
Are you able to get into the System Recovery area?
Do you have a custom ROM?
Is your device Rooted?
