Unlocked Windows Phone 7 Phones Gets Device Reset App

For awhile now, the 4-in-1, 5-in-1 or even 6-in-1 reboot menus have been apropos for Android ROMs. The ability to reboot the phone on a whim instead of having to turn the phone off and back on is an essential function that is often underrated.
Now, Windows Phone 7 has an app in progress that gives Windows Phone 7 users the ability to do this very thing without any difficulty. The developer of the app, XDA Senior Member sh4d0w86, has released the app to make the process more streamlined and easier for users to perform these basic functions, along with a function to hard reset the phone, which is the same as a factory reset.
You can find the first release of the app in its original thread. Thus far, the reboot and power down options work just fine, but the hard reset is still being worked on. The only requirement? An unlocked Windows Phone 7 device. If you’d like to check it out, follow the thread link above for additional information, download links and screen shots. Also, sh4d0w86 encourages anyone who tries the app to stop by and leave some feedback to help with future releases.
