A friend of mine asked me to save the data on her tab2 10.1 and set it back to factory settings. She's had the tablet for a few years now and it was running slow.
Anyway saved all her data and at first did a soft reset from settings area (later tried with buttons). All goes well until you get to put the name in and then it stays on the page "This tablet belongs to ..." The tablet uses your name to personalise some apps.
Both forward and back arrows are greyed out and inactive.
It starts by asking the time and date - which it gets from wifi which is set up and running and then says Unfortunately World Clock has stopped (OK)
Then the next screen asks for first and last name and on submit it gets stuck
Back up and restor screen appears - no backup anyway.
Next screeen Google & Location - use wifi
Solved! Go to Solution.
