Then you select the factory reset line with volume button, you press smoothly the power on button .

It will not let me highlight Yes -- delete all user data, it highlights the one before and the one after. Please help, getting desperate.

When you are one before "Yes -- delete all user data" press one time the Volume Down button. The highlight will stay at the same line but relay your choose well be next line.

This is the problem with the Android system. Read the description to video in YouTube. I tried to explain there, how to resolve this problem.
