Reset to factory defaults on Zebra (Motorola) Windows CE/Windows Mobile devices

Zebra/Symbol/Motorola devices running Windows CE or Windows Mobile OS can be easily set to factory defaults using this simple procedure:

  • Verify that in mobile device's \Application folder contains subfolder airbeam with subfolders _pt and pkg. These folders should be present on all Zebra/Symbol/Motorola devices. They may be empty.
  • Using Wi-Fi, Ethernet cradle or GPRS/3G connect your device to the internet. DNS and FTP services are required.
  • Start Rapid Deployment Client (Start > Programs > Rapid Deployment Client).
  • If your scanner supports reading of 2D barcodes scan 2D symbol from the appropriate PDF file printed or displayed on the screen from the link below.
  • If your scanner supports just 1D symbols print appropriate PDF file and scan all barcodes. Symbols may be scanned in any order, each symbol at least once.
  • Connect power but disconnect local data connection to PC (USB/RS-232).
  • Wait for restart.
  • Proceed with display calibration if your device has a resistive touch panel.
