    Well my clone note 2 has the chinese menu but the thing is is does not have the (emmc) at the end at the 5th option it does have first 2 chinese symbols but with 2 more chinese symbols.When you hit the option it just restarts the phone. I already took the phone to 3 phone shops and no one can do anything. It doesn’t connect via usb and it has the network off. Do i just destroy the phone ore it has a miracle factory reset option?

      Once its Android it should have the Option Joseph, its either you are in the wrong menu or the wording of the menu is a bit different. If I can see the screen I would be able to help, can you take a screen shot and upload it to a free image sharing service, Also if its ok with you could I use it in this article as a reference for other with a similar menu setup?, also do not give up just yet on this device.

    I was not able to factory reset my galaxy note II clone. Instead of eMMC it has MMO and my home button works the same as the volume up and down key to scroll through the options. Could you help me reset my phone?

      The capacitive menu button may be used as select or tapping power, as for what the screen is saying without a picture its hard to figure out. Here is a trick you can try but it will require another android phone and a app called: Google Translate. When you open the app select the camera and choose translate from Chinese to English or set it to detect the language for you and point your phone camera at your Chinese phone menu and it should translate your screen to English from there its a easy matter of reading and selecting the correct options to reset.
      Hope that helps, sometimes we have to get a bit creative.

        Thanks that helps, but I have one other question. When I loaded Google Apps my Irulu tablet started to react slowly and would also freeze. My question is was it the download of Google Apps or something else. My tablet uses Android 5.1.1.

        I’m try n to reset a Chinese note 5 and after i select the “eMMC” it takes about a full minute to restart.
        I thought it worked but the pin lock reappears. I do get access to the home screen but anywhere from 2 seconds to 30 seconds later the pin lock shows up again??? I was expecting the google lock screen so i could bypass it. But the reset didn’t happen any ideas?
