I think you didn't catch what we are talkin about. Soft reset doesn't meen we would like to erase all data and revert back to factory settings.

My phone is not able to shut down even after one hour after pressing: power botton for a moment -> power off. Any clues?

@ d-fens
Strange indeed soft reset works here fine but used it only a few times

Maybe a hard reset forces to reinstall the o/s correct and solves you're problem because it should work via the power button...

Do you get the pop-up menu with the different choices?

what the hell are you people talking about?
a soft reset is a way to restart the phone using an option in the phone, perhaps an app

so when there's the option to POWER OFF the phone, there is the option to RESTART the phone

Re: Soft reset in htc desire
I got the popup menu when I press power button for a while but when I press first option to shut down the phone - it does not shut down. Shuting down message displays for ages and nothing happens.

Sorry, I think I got it wrong. D-fens - what you have done is fine, taking out the battery, judging by htc website
htc.com/europe/howto.aspx?id=721&type=1&p_id=312
but I don't know why wouldn't it shut down with power button, it works fine with my.

I think I know what your trying to get at, the problem is in your phone, unmount your SD card, I suspect its faulty. This will I suspect work. Try it and tell us how you get on. I'm assuming switching the phone off and on again is the same as rebooting or soft reset on Android.

Lol mega fail answers. I think currently there is no way to soft reset your phone without going the long way of turning it off and turning it on again. Quite annoying I know, but you should not have to soft reset your phone much at all, if you do then there is a prob with software etc. I have only soft reset my phone maybe 2-3 times in the few weeks I have had it for.

But again I believe the question is:

Is there an app or some special way to soft reset the desire, without removing battery or without pressing and holding power button and selecting turn off, as both these methods simply turn the device off and are not actually resetting the device...

Use quickboot or root boot. I personally use root boot. Works fine.

That's what they call a soft reset via the power button LOL
You get the option to power off the phone ( which is actually a two way step for a soft reset )

He actually states that this option doen't work for him, because the phone just times out ( or in other words it just freeze) after making the choice in the pop menu...

Despite all work arounds offered here it should work on every Desire
by default (within a few seconds)

If it doesn't then a reinstall of the software could be to rule out a software issue in the trouble shooting process.

But before that I should un install every non default software package,
and try the soft reset function to see if the phone powers down in a few seconds.

my reply where ment for d-fens his questions!
