Restart Android device restore after factory reset

StuartProgramming Blog

If you find yourself in the situation where the initialization application crashes or something else goes wrong when starting a phone after a factory reset, you can be stuck without your apps. There is a way to restart the app restore process from a terminal or adb terminal.

shell@username:/ $ bmgr list sets
  1234567890abcdef : droid48
  34567890abcdef12 : galaxy49
  ...

shell@username:/ $ bmgr restore 1234567890abcdef
Scheduling restore: droid48
done

This may require root.
