Method 2: How to hard reset on Xiaomi Pocophone F1 using hardware keys

In case Settings menu is inaccessible, or if your device keeps on rebooting, the next good alternative to resetting your Xiaomi Pocophone F1 is by using the hardware buttons. In other cases, this method may also be the only method that you can use especially if the phone has become unresponsive. It’s also helpful if there’s a problem with the touchscreen due to a firmware fault.

To hard reset on Xiaomi Pocophone F1 using hardware keys:

  1. If possible, create a backup of irreplaceable data in your internal storage before performing a master reset. If not possible, skip this step and proceed to the next one below.
  2. Hold down the Power button to turn off the device.. This is important. If you can’t turn it off, you’ll never be able to boot to Recovery Mode. If you are not able to shut the device off regularly via the Power button, wait until the phone’s battery is drained. Then, charge the phone for 30 minutes before booting to Recovery Mode.
  3. Press the Volume Up and Power buttons together.
  4. When the POCO logo appears, release the Power button.
  5. Let go of Volume Up button when ‘Recovery Mode’ appears.

For some Xiaomi Pocophone F1 devices, using a code under the Service menu may also factory reset the phone. Some firmware versions of Xiaomi Pocophone F1 may disable access to the Service menu though so if nothing happens after entering a code, you can assume your device has no such option.
