    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.

    power and volume don't work -
    what is connectbot? i have a partially rooted EVO (super user access granted) no system file customization allowed yet.

    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".
