You can reset your Huawei Mercury M886 to restore the default factory setting by following below instructions:

  • On the Settings screen, touch Privacy > Factory data reset.
  • When prompted, touch Reset phone, and then touch Erase everything. The mobile phone resets the settings to the original factory settings, and then restarts.
Unfortunately there are no guarantees. you will need to check for updates when you are logged back on the phone.

I hope this helps.

I've done that so many times still will not facory reset. I told the other expert but did not help
Expert:  Answers by Eric replied 2 years ago.

 

Thats the only way to reset the phone. If thats not working, then your only option is to have the phone refurbished/reflashed.

Thank Anyway

I wish there was more we could do, I pride myself on being able to resolve any issue that is brought to me by customers here as my 100%^ positive rating will attest to, but in your specific situation if you are able to boot into Recovery as I outlined and you complete the reset... if it doesnt reset, then your phones firmware is corrupt.
