    Anyone know the easy key configuration to simply restart my new Sprint EVO phone. Or soft boot - It was useful with my G1 to hold the call menu & end buttons at the same time for the phone to restart if i needed it to after an app installation or uninstall or if my old phone was lagging a bit and i wanted to make sure all unnecessary process' were killed. But with the new EVO using a single power / screen button on the top of the device i have not been able to figure out how to restart. I don't like going through the shut down process then having to turn the phone back on so i'm hoping someone knows a restart option.

    Maybe you'll have better luck with better terminal emulator. Its easier to use.

    First you type in "su"

    The $ sign should change to # sign to show your a superuser.

    Then simply type in "reboot".
