Hard reset on your Xiaomi mobile: what it is and what it is for

What is a hard reset ? This is a question that has come to us on more than one occasion and a process that you can easily carry out on your Xiaomi, Redmi or POCO mobile. In this article you will learn how to use the hard reset in different ways and with total safety.

The hard reset or "hard reset" is much more than a factory reset, it is a way to solve errors, return to previous versions of Android/MIUI or the safest way to clean your mobile if you want to sell it or simply erase it.

What is a hard reset on your Xiaomi for?

Hard reset Xiaomi 11

And why might you be interested in performing a hard reset on your Xiaomi? For any of these possibilities:

  • If you need to erase all data from the phone's memory quickly and safely, either because you want to give it away or sell it.
  • In the same way, if you have been given a mobile and you do not want to keep anything and restart it, this is the appropriate way, respecting the content of its previous owner.
  • If you need to reset your phone to its original state — like when you bought it — after encountering various bugs during the latest software updates.
  • If you simply notice that the operation is erratic , if the system has started to slow down, if the battery drains, if the connections fail or you have coverage problems.
  • If your Xiaomi has entered the dreaded loop of trying to boot but not finishing. This happens when a Xiaomi, Redmi or POCO gets stuck on the Mi/Xiaomi logo screen and cannot get out of it. This is one of the most common errors after a major update to the root of the system.

Three tips before doing a hard reset

{"videoId":"x86mmkp","autoplay":true,"title":"MIUI 13 y MIUI 13 Pad: Todas las NOVEDADES y DISPONIBILIDAD"}

Before carrying out a hard reset on your Xiaomi there are three considerations that you must take into account. They are the following:

  1. Don't run out of battery. To avoid possible errors during the process, since it usually takes a few minutes, it is recommended that the hard reset is always carried out with the battery charged from 50% or more.
  2. Make a backup, just in case . Keep in mind that the hard reset erases all the data on the terminal, so if there is something you want to keep, it should be safeguarded by connecting it to the PC and creating a local backup —or in the cloud, here we tell you how to make a backup copy of your Xiaomi mobile —.
  3. If your mobile does not turn on beyond the logo screen, you can also do a hard reset , as you will see later. The custom recovery (TWRP) is carried out by holding down the power and volume up keys for 10 seconds.
