I am puzzled that the Moto X also doesn't have a restart. I feel like Android is so smart in so many ways, but misses some of the most basic functions...

I never figured out if the Quick-Boot app does the same thing.

So when I hear/read people say they've performed a "soft-reboot" on their device, i often wonder what this technically means since there isn't an actual way to accomplish a "soft-reboot" gracefully. it's the equivalent of hitting the reset button on your PC while Windows is running.

The soft reboot is exactly the same as a normal reboot from gravitybox or quickboot or anything else. The ONLY difference is that soft reboot starts the boot at a kernel level, and the 'hard' reboot starts at the bootloader level. They both stop processes in the exact same way.
