Soft Reset Utility for Windows Mobile 6

Posted on August 27, 2007

I reboot my T-Mobile Wing pretty regularly to make sure that I have the most memory available to me.  One of the shortcomings of the Wing is that the pagepool size is so large that it leaves very little memory for running programs.

pc_capture1 Instead of having to do the standard "hold the power button for it to go into shutdown", I wrote a simple app that performs the soft reset.

If you are looking for something to do that, you can download it below.  I have only tested it on the Wing, so I am not sure how it will function with other devices.  Hypothetically it should work on any device that is running Windows Mobile 5 or Windows Mobile 6, but I can't guarantee, so don't try it if you don't want to risk data loss.

If you do decide to try it, feel free to leave me comments or suggestions from your experience.  I would like to eventually add a scheduler component so you can schedule your reboots if necessary.

To install, download the cab file to your mobile device, and click on it to install.
