Hello Jinnie,

A factory reset would be to re-flash the Edison module. This way you would be flashing the Edison with a new image and the packages that you had installed would be erased. You can re-flash the Edison using the Flash Tool Lite. This software can be downloaded from the following site, under the Flash Tool Lite section: https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/hardware/edison/downloads IoT - Intel® Edison Board Download | Intel® Developer Zone

Regards,

Diego.
