Is there an app for XDAndroid that will allow the phone to reboot completely, into WinMo? Save a little time?

Regards

Soft reset not fast enough for ya?

You can do the whole power off routine, but I assume that's what you mean by 'save a little time' - is that is too time consuming, and actually powers off the device.

I'm sure there's a widget or some such thing...

I use Quick Boot (you can download it from the market) then add the reboot widget to your home screen, one tap and you're set.

Yeah, I discovered that when the app worked what a nifty feature

There's no soft reset in XDAndroid. Are you thinking of Neopeek, where reset is available next to power off by holding down the power button?

But back on point, I was also using Quick Boot for a while, but it reboots so fast, I'm very suspicious of it. I get enough random SD card errors creating FOUND.01 or whatever folders without using reboots that presumably aren't following the shutdown routine.

Every phone has a soft reset. There's a little pin you press with the stylus that's under the battery cover... Are you not familiar with hard/soft resets..?

Well...actually, if I hold down the end key, it will power down, go silent, blah blah blah. It's a little screen that pops up and shutdown is an option, so it's not just Neopeek's version that can do this. As far as reboot the phone, you are correct that there is no stock way to do this, but as pointed out earlier in this thread there is the app on the market with a reset widget. Otherwise, you could always learn to alter the code and make this option available yourself. That would be cool. I would appreciate it
