Reboot your TouchPad

There are always times when you need to reboot your TouchPad, but you will quickly realize that many of the same ways that you rebooted your webOS phone are no longer available to you without a physical keyboard, the ringer switch, or even a removable battery that you can pull. In fact, even the power menu that pops up when you press-and-hold the power button no longer has a reboot option. In order to reboot your Touchpad, you will need to perform one of the following steps:

  1. Open the Device Info app, scroll down to the bottom of the screen, select "Reset Options" and then "Restart"
  2. Some homebrew apps like Internalz Pro or Preware offers in-app options to perform Luna and/or full Device reboots
  3. Jason Robitaille's "Advanced Reset Options" patch in Preware will add both Device and Luna Restart options to the power menu that appears when you press-and-hold the device's power button for 5-7 seconds
  4. As a last resort, if you have a frozen device or are unable to use one of the steps above, you can press the device's home button and power button together for about 15 seconds to perform a hard reboot. This is the closest equivilent to doing a battery pull on phones.
