Sometimes We All Just Need A CleanStart

Thu Jul 10, 2008 - 2:22 AM EDT - By Mike Guccione

Over at PalmAddicts there was an interesting little tidbit that was written on a free app called CleanStart. As most Palm users are aware, beginning with Treo 650s, Palm implemented the NVFS memory system to ensure your data would remain intact even with long periods with a dead battery. This is much nicer than having everything wiped out unintentionally, though it has not been without its hiccups along the way.

That being said, if you are having issues with certain programs not loading correctly or would prefer to have more control over what loads and doesn't load, you may want to cruise on over to Freeware Palm and download CleanStart. The price is certainly good enough..

"CleanStart lets you control which applications get reset launch codes. In Diagnose mode, CleanStart also lists most of the applications receiving reset launch codes
This slows down the boot but may be helpful for diagnosing reset loop problems."

Of course, make sure that you back everything up ahead of time. And if you're not really sure what you're doing, be careful - you don't really want to be poking around with the ROM unless you are ready to deal with some very unintended consequences. .
