We don't have any official Android install, so you will need to to wherever you got your download for help.

The Raspberry Pi's operating system is on the SD card, not stored in the Pi itself.

So all you have to do is copy your Android OS onto the card exactly the same way you did it before and there you hae it - a "Factory Reset"
