iReboot, PowerManager, Restart, Lock, Shutdown, Repring….what is the difference?

There have been quite a few apps released lately that Restart, Lock, Respring and Shutdown your iPhone. So, I thought I would run through some of the differences between them. It can get a little confusing so make sure you read carefully.

RestartRestart/Killboard/Respring/Lock – These applications are one-touch solutions to restarting your SpringBoard. Just tap the application and they will restart your SpringBoard, bringing it to the lockscreen.

ShutdownRespringBB – A one-touch solution to respring your SpringBoard without bringing it to the lock screen. Just tap the application and it will use the Set Language mode to respring your SpringBoard without going to the lock screen.

ShutdownShutdown – A one-touch solution to turning your iPhone completely off. Just tap the application and it will turn off your iPhone. This would be the same as holding down your power button.

Restart 1.0 – Installer Style

Well, Doug is totally stoked to have his first app in the Installer (though it is just a facelift to the KillBoard app by Skylar…who we love!!) If you install Restart from the Installer, you will get the OSX version of the app. If you want the XP version Doug created…you will have to add it manually from this post. Restart is available through the iSpazio source. Below are the screenshots. [Read more…]

Restart 1.0

Restart So I found this really sweet icon and I just had to have it on my springboard. So, I installed killboard and did a little tweaking. I changed the icon, app name and the Default.png to add the ultimate customization. If you want to install it just download here. Just unzip, SSH it in and set the permissions. Sorry, this won’t be coming out in installer anytime soon :)

P.S. Don’t try to use Capture to take a screenshot of the iPhone when it is restarting :)

UPDATE – OS X version here!
