Introduction

If you forgot your lock screen pattern, PIN and you can't enter the menu with your google account, you can perform a Factory Master reset.

!!! This will erase all your personal data (phone book, accounts, pictures, etc.) and will remove all after installed applications.

My tablet was factory reset by me. It came on after this with everything in (I think) Hong Kong Chinese. I need to know how to restore my Tablet to English. None of the above achieved this for me.
