Bug Description

As of now it is not possible to do a "factory-reset" in the settings menu. Though, it is possible to use phablet-flash --bootstrap, an option should be added to the system settings which allows a reset without using another linux machine.

<https://wiki.ubuntu.com/SystemSettings#phone-reset>: "'Erase & Reset Everything…' should display an alert with text 'All documents, saved games, settings, and other items will be permanently deleted from this phone.', and 'Erase & Reset Everything' and 'Cancel' buttons. After the reset, you should be returned to the phone welcome screen."
