How To Reset a Gen3 Device

There are several methods for resetting a Gen3 device.

1. Webend "Reset EVERYTHING" button

2. win-stock-reset.bat or option 7 of linux-homebrew.sh

3. place empty file on same thumbdrive as firmware called "reset-all" if this is present at boot time, device will be reset

4. place empty file on same thumbdrive as firmware called "reset-pwd" if this is present at boot time, device passwords only will be reset

5. from cmd line do

rm -rf /conf/*
config_tool -s
config_tool -s
reboot

Please note none of the above will change the opperating mode back to stock. To return to stock mode, win-homebrew-stockify.bat

Also there is a 2nd writable area on Gen3 devices, this is still being researched. .
