Hi,

Does any one have a code snippet that will Cold Boot a Motorola WT4090/WT41N0 device ?  It's running Windows Embedded 7 ( Which I understand is a flavour of CE )

Warm boot, using IOCTL_HAL_REBOOT is fine for a warm boot, but I can't find an option for a cold boot.

Any help much appreciated

Cheers

Mart

My understanding of cold reboot is to cut the power off - if my understanding is correct then you need some mechanism (eg. human finger) to actually perform the reboot because the OP system is not running.

HI Andy,

I appreciate your comment, but I can confirm that a cold boot is more than a power cut.  Most mobile devices of the type I use have a Warm boot and a Cold boot where a Warm boot retains non-volatile memory, and a cold does not.

Often a cold boot would be used to reinstall s/w from flash memory etc.

Cheers

Cold Booting

Hold down buttons 1 and 9 simultaneously.
While holding those buttons, press the Power button.
When your terminal restarts, you should see a white screen with {{{ at the top. If you do not see those brackets, please repeat the procedure until you do.

I previously wrote an article addressing the use of UBCD4WIN and SARDU. All are great, but I have always been an advocate of SARDU. Recently it was suggested that I go back and take a look at Easy2Boot in comparison.
