Worked for me on my EVO with CM6. For me it basically just skipped the splash screen and booted straight from the boot animation. It was definitely quicker.

Now what are the +\- of using this versus just doing a normal reboot? Pretty much what does a normal reboot provide us that this cant?

On the galaxy S it is 2 times as fast as a normal reboot (clocked: 19s. hot reboot, 43s. normal reboot) Don't know about the EVO CM6.

+ is that one can kill all tasks at once and start with a clean system (snapier)
+ if one has to reboot because of a change: faster
+ beautiful reboot animation

- the system isn't totally reinitialised from the start (properties from build.prop aren't reset), but then again why does it have to?
- don't know yet.

I see it as a fast task killer, system memory cleaner and a handy, fast reboot option if changing something requires that.

Works very well on my SGS too. I get to regain as much memory as a cold boot.

Just 2 things:
1. Can the app implement a confirmation text box in case of accidental tap?
2. I am not seeing the beautiful reboot animation. Did you mean the circular thing that comes before it shuts off?

Minor side effect: If wifi was on before the reboot, wifi remains off although wifi is still showing as on from notification bar. Have to off then on wifi again to reconnect.

I forsee myself using this app very often from now on. Good job!

Actually a good idea. And users can set that on or off if they want. Good tip!

Yep!!! Don't you like it
But expect more in the future. I'm planning a whole multimedia show when the user reboots his device. Then it will be a real hot reboot app!

Will look at it.

Next to useless
Yeah sure it reboots the graphics shell but it doesnt kill any other apps to be honest, when I come back from a cold reboot I am usually left with about 205 megs of mem but with this 134 averegae after 5 retries. uninstalling from my Samsung Galaxy S

I've put that to a test. I started an application like msn talk which I know would stay running in the background. Upon using this hot reboot, the application restarted as well.

On the side note, my galaxy s never had any free memory more that 160 megabytes on cool boot. This hot reboot gives about 140 megabytes, which I found reasonable to use.

Brilliant idea. Of course coming from Nederlands!!!
Do you have the same program for the WM6.5, which comes originally with the HJD2??? Is it fully safe ??? I have horror to the confused "usual" hard resets...

Please post the command this app uses to achieve this.

I've seen my phone do this sometimes, (unexpectedly reboots in <20 seconds)
Interestingly if you're on a phone call at the time, the call stays active all the way through the boot screen until the lock screen appears again. (the phone app gets restarted I guess)


thanks
