- Select it by pressing the power button.
- You’ll see an android mascot with a red triangle and exclamation mark.
- Hold down the power and press the volume up button once and then release the power button.
- Press the volume down button repeatedly to select “erase or wipe the cache partition” from the list of options.
- Wait for the process to complete and then restart your device.
