    Has anyone found an app that reliably reboots the Storm running 5.0 OS? I've tried quickpull, both free and pro, quicklaunch, bbmem2, and some others. Disabled compatability mode, allow all permissions, millions of hard battery pulls, the whole 9 yards. I can't get any of them to work at all!

    EDIT: Found the answer!!!! See Post #23 in this thread

    A funny thing happened to me the other day. A screen popped up that said my memory was low, and listed every app by the time since used. It asked which ones I'd like to erase, then rebooted itself to erase the apps.

    Two things happen when I try to reboot using QL:

    1. It doesn't work.
    2. The numerical info under my Meterberry icon (battery %, or free memory) disappears. I have to do a battery pull to get it back.

    Just curious -- but why do you need an app to automate a reboot? Is it just habit from days of having an old OS, or apps that have horrible leaks?

    I personally (I know every device differs) have never used QP, QL, Meterberry, etc for rebooting.

    Well its very nice to have if you have a hard case on your phone. Other then that I would have to agree with you that it was majorly used in the older OS days. I would have mine automaticly reset daily but since .151 etc that part of the app is a thing of the past. I still use Meterberry a ton though but not for the reset.

    I use softreset and it works great with no problems with 5.0 firmware for the 9530 Storm.

    I don't need a scheduled reboot, but I use a hard case, and I like to be able to reboot if I want to, without having to take it all apart. Also I like to play with hybrids and such.

    I don't know what's going on with everybody else, but I love V5.0, and I have no problem, again, NO PROBLEM with quickpull (free version).

    9530's are finicky buggers, to say the least.

    Still...I'm diggin' mine.

    SoftReset OS 4.5 Fix | BerryReview.com

    Check out this link. It solved my problem with QL. Going to check my other reboot apps as soon as my phone finishes rebooting.

    The gist is, Options icon>applications>highlight email setup app>bbmenu button>edit default permissions>set all to allow.

    Bingo...QL reset works!!!!

    EDIT: works for Quickpull, Softreset, BBMem also. Did not fix MeterBerry, though.
