I wanted a hard reset as I forgot my pin. Now it says its downloading software and says...do not turn off target. What's this now?

A Factory Reset would be Power and Volume Down. VolumeUp is only for Recovery mode.

Either way, I'm not certain that it will overarch the requirement of a PIN. Security measures usually escape a reset. I reset an Android phone yesterday and it came back already rooted so factory resets aren't exactly what they say they are..
