    I am unable to reset my HTC 8X.... Pressing volume down button and powering on just vibrates the phone and it restarts....

    The hard reset is done via settings -> about -> reset your phone. You're trying to do a soft reset, which is AFAIK done by pressing both volume keys and the power key together. If that doesn't work, try to press volume down and power button for approx 10seconds, and that should do the trick. Plug the charger in and try again if you think it didn't work.

    Just hold the power button down.

    HARD RESET (by settings)-
    settings<about< reset

    Turn the power off.
    Press and hold the VOLUME DOWN button, and then briefly press the POWER button. Release the VOLUME DOWN button when you see an icon on the screen.
    Then press the following hardware buttons in sequence: VOLUME UP > VOLUME DOWN > POWER > VOLUME DOWN.
