    Still Looking for a Soft Reset for OS .230?

    After doing a little more searching I have found another temporary fix, for a soft reset, until more apps. are made 5.0 compatable. Just tested it and it works great, give it a try!

    Go to the call screen and type ##000000 and hit the call button. Scroll down to the password section and type vzw. Then hit the BB button to save and the phone will reboot.

    Hope this helps someone.

    Sorry, this is a VWZ tip only!

    I use the "Reset Device" in Quicklaunch. It works perfectly.

    Sorry, yes this is a Verizon fix only! gordtm, QL and the fix for QL is only working for some people.

    I guess this is just another work around until more apps are updated to be compatible with 5.0 os.

    Meterberry unfortunately does not work yet with .230 (as you found out the hard way). But I am sure they are working on a 5.0 compatible version so it will come handy soon.

    Yes you would. This is just a quick temporary fix for a traditional battery pull. If you use a case on your Storm and need to do a quick reset, this will save you having to remove the case. This will work in a pinch untill more soft reset apps., are made 5.0 compatible.

    This fix was never intended to replace a traditional batter pull.

    There is an app called MemoryEye that works flawlessly. Available in appstore and/or mobihand. Cost is like $3 I think. Small app that just sits in option menu. Works great.

    This is an OTA for quick pull. Make sure your phones compatibility is disabled and it should work fine.

    I tried it and here is what I got "something went wrong. Aborting. See device log for more details."
