Ok, good to know and makes sense. I guess if you're going to hard reset anyway later why not do it one more time. What's the proper way to hard reset, by the way because the last time I thought I had done it it turns out I didn't do it the "correct" way because I only used a button combo.
Button combo and OS triggered hard reset both do the exact same thing. Neither one is more correct than the other. Doing it through the UI is just simpler:
