    Hi,

    I woke up this morning to see my iPhone 5 showing the "Hola" screen. My 2 years old son occasionally resets it when he enters wrong pass code, so I thought it would be it. However, the screen I see is continuously switching between different languages. When I try to shut down, I see a message in some oriental language (Most prob chinese), with some audio in same language. I have reset it a few times but the problem persists.

    Please help me out as the phone is completely non-usable at the moment.

    iPhone 5, iOS 8.0.2

    Try restoring from an older backup or restore as new.

    Thanks wxman2003,
    How can I restore to an older version when I can't get out of the reset screen. It won't allow me to do anything even when I try to power off, there is a message written in front of the slide to power off bar.

    Look under Settings/General/Languages and change it back to Engwish

    Great wxman2003,
    Restoring using iTunes worked a treat. Many thanks for your suggestion
