    Reply to “Sarthak” That means it was unsuccessful you’ll need to reformat your phone. Remove the battery to turn off the phone and then access the recovery mode by holding the Volume Up+Home Button Key+Power Button Just Hold it Simultaneously for about 5-10sec and then on the recovery mo choose wipe data and cache use the volume up and down to navigate up and down home buttom to Ok/Enter then reboot, done you reformated your phone back to the way it was.
