Default Interesting reply from Asus

So I woke up to an email notification that someone had replied to my review of my tablet on Amazon. Check it out below...

Sorry I'm on my phone right now and it's too difficult to copy and paste it directly to this thread. But any that wants to, feel free

Well I'll give them/him credit for the personal touch. Any truth to the factory reset/cold boot suggestions? I don't even know how to do either of those lol.

LOL hang in there!
They say the cold boot accomplishes nothing.
All I know is it has fixed my app bugs more often than not.

To do the boot:
Press the power button to shut off the tab\select turn off tablet.
After completely off:
Press and hold volume + rocker (side toward power button)
While holding volume + press and hold power button till tab vibrates look for small white letters in upper right corner.
Release power button...you will see RCK Android and USB.
If you do nothing the tab will boot back to Android in 5 seconds or so.

Then you will have cold booted.

The below is copied from the all in one guide here in the general section...
** Cold Boot - FastBoot - Wipe Data Menu **
Press Volume Down + Power untill you see a white text on the screen then release the buttons.Use Volume Down to navigate and Volume Up to confirm your selection.
You have 10 seconds to make your choice,or else the system will do a Cold Boot by default.

Looks like you need Root access...

sorry Soul , I did not realise you were on stock . Rooting is awsum!

no seriously, it is the same as having admin on windows, which everyone knows you shouldn't but you do anyway because without it you are screwed!

+1 CROMI and it is already rooted and lightyears away from anything ASUS is seemingly capable of , actual user experience is off the chart and you will actually enjoy using your paperweight!

A cold boot is any boot from power off. So the easy procedure for cold booting is:
* Turn power off
* Turn power on

Until someone posts with a technical explanation what the detour via the bootloader menu would do differently, I claim that the effect of both methods is exactly the same.
