    So I've made a huge mistake playing with Tasker (app). I've accidentally created a task that locks the phone every time the screen display is on. This means I can't use my phone at all, it will just keep locking itself every time I press the power button because that turns on the display. I'm frustrated as hell. The only way I can see this problem being fixed is through a hard reset via the hardware buttons. I've tried and tried and I cant seem to find a way to hard reset the phone. Can anyone help me out? Thanks

    Here's one list of what holding the power button down for a specific number of seconds does. Hope it helps.

    No, the phone should reboot and then open and be usable.

    Thanks this worked for me. It wasnt a hard reset though. Im actually not sure what it did but it stopped tasker from screen locking my phone. Cheers.

    If you are still holding the power button it will continously reboot (not fully, but after it's off... basically what happened to you).

    Just have to hold the power button until you get to the reboot screen.

    +1...the 32 second hold is supposed to be the equivalent of removing the battery.
