Hard resets...
« on: April 26, 2011, 11:13:08 PM »
Now, i have been wondering this for a while now, what does a hard reset actually do to your phone?
from what i remember my mother was teaching me as a kid, never to power off a computer using the power button xD

now, how does exacly hard reset solve lot of lag problems (and it does), could it be hurtfull to my phone, and so on?

A phone is different than a computer. When you power off a computer with the power  button you unexpectedly interrupt many process and/or programs. When you hard reset you ipod it's usually to fix a glitch. Sooo there two different concepts.

Yes but it doesn't seem to effect it much when you get down to it...
Not like hard reseting a PC, where when u boot it back up your greeted with a 'Windows did not shut down successfully'

I think... or the way I look at it. Is it restarts every process from scratch. If that makes sense. When you power to slide off it turns off all processes (that's why you get spinning wheel thing). With a hard reset it forces everything to shut down instantly. So it all has to restart.

Probalby doesn't make sense... but that' show I look at it.

It's the same exact thing on a desktop computer and the iPhone. The reason it "fixes" lag is because your phone has more free RAM right after a restart, but that is eventually used up as caches begin to build.
