A JNIOR may be reset to factory configuration. This involves clearing the
unit which is an operation referred to as Sanitizing . Once this is done
an All-In-One update project must be run using the Support Tool in order to
restore the factory set of files.
This procedure clears the JNIOR completely of any prior configuration placing
the unit in a fresh and blank condition. This performs the following actions:
1. Shuts down running applications.
2. Reformats the Flash memory erasing all content.

files. Both the Support Tool and the update projects may be obtained from
the website at jnior.com
Note that in the absence of the Support Tool you can transfer the files
listed in the Initial_Files
section to the unit from another JNIOR or
Do not copy the /flash/jnior.ini file. If you intend to copy Registry
settings to the unit the Registry import/ingest command Reg -I should be
used. The jnior.ini file is automatically generated and should not be
edited or overwritten.
