Re: Soft Reset?

Nope. Power off and power back on. Im sure theres either an app, or certain ROMs have Quickboot loaded on them

Re: Soft Reset?

Got to the market, do a search for quickboot. Adds functionality to reboot, boot in recovery, or boot into bootloader. There is even a widget.

Or you can Hold the power button. Press the volume button rocker up and down repeatedly until it begins to reboot.

Quickboot is much easier.

And for the record, that's not a OS issue (Android vs WM), thats a Hardware design issue!

Re: Soft Reset?

A note: root access is required to use this application.

Re: Soft Reset?

All the windows mobile versions I ran didn't have a reboot app standard either. The custom ROM's usually always added it.

The only thing winmo has on android in that area is it didn't require any type of root access.
