Recently my brother came to me complaining about his Wiko brand mobile. He kept telling me how bad his cell phone was doing and how much he missed his old Bq Aquaris 5 , which he had forgotten in a drawer since it was left in an infinite bootloop . As it could not be otherwise, I offered to reset his Bq Aquaris 5 off , that is what gave me the idea of this post which I have titled how to restore factory settings of any BQ AQUARIS .

The first thing you should do to reset the bq mobile to the factory is to enter the BQ website and download the necessary tools:
Locate the model of your device (in my case I downloaded Bq Aquaris 5 )
Now we download the firmware version corresponding to the chosen model (in my case Firmware 2.1.1 (Android 4.4.2).
We also download the utility package .
Now we go to the Driver&tool folder and unzip it with Winrar and we will have 3 folders left :
- Driver Hard Reset
- MTK FlashTool
Now the next thing is to enter the folder called Driver Hard Reset and run the file install . A window will appear asking for your permission to install the app.
