    Battery pull is like device reset
    You can try install QuickPull to easier device reset

    Just a note, QuickPull is not the same as a battery pull.

    QuickPull does a "soft reset" on the device, the same as Alt + Left Shift + Delete. A Battery Pull does an actual "Hard Reset" on the device and can't be replicated by a "soft reset". While a "soft reset" does solve some problems, it will not solve as many problems as a Battery Pull will. Removing the power source from electronics can't be replicated via software.

    This is not 100% accurate. There are many day-to-day problems that can come up in which QuickPull will not resolve. I don't have any direct examples on hand but I can tell you for sure it comes up all the time in the forum. Regardless if you have a hard case or not, a battery pull should be something you often perform on your device. I have an Innocase II on my device but I remove it to do a battery pull - its not that big of a deal at all. I find no need for QuickPull at all really so I do not install it. If I want to do the same thing that QuickPull does, then I will just do the three finger salute for a soft reset.

    Interesting, thanks for the info. I do Quickpull every night, I don't even remember the last time I pulled the battery out.
