reboot

The most recent update for the Xbox One improved stability and added new functionality to Microsoft’s gaming console, but it has also had an unintended consequence: it has also made the system a bit less stable in other ways. Reports are surfacing around the web that users are experiencing what we are calling the black screen of (temporary) death. The software glitch is annoying, but if you encounter it there is an easy fix: reboot.

Although we haven’t seen this problem at all on our 920, our HTC 8X on occasion has spontaneously reset.  And judging by our forums, users of all Windows Phone 8 devices have had some stability issues, although it’s a seemingly small percentage.

Now, according to All Microsoft, via All Things D, have said they think they have identified the issue hope to have a hot fix update deployed over-the-air next month. No details on exactly what the issue is but we can bet is has to do with memory allocation or execution of specific code that causes the phone to spontaneously restart itself.

Here's another cool and useful tool for you Homebrew folks: Mang Restart.

The app comes from singularity0821, the same XDA'er who gave us that Battery Live Tile app that we reported on the other day. In a similar fashion, this app can be run as a standalone or pinned to your Start screen as a Tile for quick access. In the app itself you have an toggle for a confirmation screen to pop up to prevent accidental presses.

We just installed it on three phones (you don't need interop unlock status) and it has worked without a glitch. Pretty cool if you need to occasionally restart or just want the option (and you find holding down the power button too hard, ya lazy bum). Head to the source link for the XAP file to sideload up.
