    alternative battery pull

    Advertisement



    I just discovered something interesting but not sure if it has been posted here. Anyway just to share I realize that there is another way to do a battery pull without actually removing the battery.

    That is press ALT+SHIFT+DEL and when the red led goes off, quickly repeat by pressing the 3 buttons again and that's it!

    I can tell the difference when I do this process because my bb takes longer to boot up compared to the soft reset also my trackball won't function(this is usually the case when I do a battery pull) and also I get a "verifying security software" dialog box. Try it out guys.

    Re: alternative battery pull

    softreset is great. I use it. the problem is that it actually has a slower reboot than just pulling the battery. its wierd but i've timed it.
