    Ive spent alot of time staring at the m logo and the droid eye for the last two days trying to get epic to work but I did find one thing

    instead of pulling the battery on boot for rooting purposes, or when your phone locks, you can restart your D2 simply pressing shift+alt+del.

    Cool...just tried this and it works like a charm...nice tip.

    So you're saying this worked even when your phone was locked up/unresponsive?

    Yeah, this has worked for me too when my phone locked up. It's a life saver when you have a case.

    Did not know that. Not that I get many lockups anymore, but it does get tiresome having to pull the battery when I do! :)
