Due to the heavy data usage on my device, I do get warning notifications from my device showing me data usage limit exceeded though I see no harm in that. As a result of today being the 2nd January 2015, I have reset my data usage counter on my Android device.
By default we can only reset this counter by factory reset which is not advisable. Here is a tutorial of how I reset my Android data usage counter with ease.
How to Reset Data Usage counter on your Android device
– You will need a file manager app with Root access. I recommend this X-plore file manager
To enable superuser access on X-plore
Click on your menu button > configuration > Root Access > Superuser. (see the screenshots below)
– browse to /data/system/netstats folder. there you see all record files.
NOTE : if you haven’t turn on root access, you will see /data folder empty but actually its not
– delete all the files on it and then restart your phone. now you will see your data counter is resetted.
