An electronic device generates a hard-reset signal after receiving a sequential input via various sensors or a power supply of the electronic device. The sensors include components that measure physical characteristics or attributes like pressure, acceleration, temperature, light, rotation, changes in a magnetic field, or electricity. The sensors or the power supply generally serve other purposes in the electronic device, and the sequential input prevents an accidental or inadvertent hard-reset signal.
