Resetting the Prime
Since the Prime would regularly go into unknown unstable state, I'm used to "Symb - On" it (modern portable version of Control Alt Sup...).
Problem is:
Soft reset: keep On pressed and tap Sym
Recovery mode: press Sym first then On and you're in recovery mode

Problem is that when you enter recovery mode there is no way to exit it and you may not always have a thin object to hard reset the Prime (another student killer, can't think how you would feel during an exam).
Does anybody know if there is a way to exit the recovery mode with a combination of keys?

RE: Resetting the Prime
Unfortunately, there are only 3 ways I know of to get out of there.

1) Pin
2) Pull the battery
3) Send a specific command over the usb


Basically, if the bootloader hits the SYMB key on boot it drops into the update mode.

RE: Resetting the Prime
What is the "specific command?"

Hi Tim, thanks for your answer (wow we get support on Sunday that is dedication!)
Would it be possible in the next versions of the firmware to have two very distinct key patterns to avoid a confusion in between soft reset and recovery mode?

Bonjour, Tugdual,
Your statement subtly implies that new firmware versions will be released... I have faith as well on that! Smile

Ha ha Jebem you made me laugh. I suppose there are enough issues pending to justify another release...

RE: Resetting the Prime
Hahaha but thinking on ways to improve the prime "ctrl+alt+del" defeats the main purpose of the upgrade itself. Maybe that's the main feature of the wireless dongle: "do you want to send info about the crash?"
