    I have had my Centro now for almost 3 months and I am pretty satisfied for my first converged device. I have had some major problems but they have all been caused by extreme power use and trying to stretch the uses of the device. I have successfully solved all of my self-inflicted problems and have what I consider to be a very stable device.

    My experiences surfing the net (surfing is much better in the ocean) with Blazer have been just fine. It seems to work fine for my needs; however just about every time I leave Blazer after I am finished surfing, my Centro does a soft reset. It happens when I go directly to Phone from Blazer or when I go to apps. If I just let it go off automatically in my pocket, I notice when I use my Centro later it had soft reset (I have CrashPro and SysInfo installed) while in my pocket. This is really a minor inconvenience as it never happens while actually using Blazer. I know that someone will suggest a hard reset and a slow install of my apps to check; but I just did that over 4 days for another problem and Blazer acted that way the whole time. Any thoughts?

    I haven't had a Blazer-related reset on my TX in months, and I don't think I've ever had one with my 755p. Can you list your 3rd party apps?

    Just a guess: either your Centro keeps too much net-downloaded data to the point it gets hogged at some other notorious processor demand, or the problem is actually a mixed one due to a problem with the Phone application. And notorious doesn't necessarily mean to play a movie; other pretty minor tasks can stress the device a bit.

    For the first, try Flush It!, after leaving Blazer. It'll clean the DB cache memory and keep on with a, say, cleaner performance. If the problem doesn't get solved, let's try another thing. Please post any results here.

    EDIT: The actual name of the app is joining Flush and It!, but the vBulletin automatically censors the result because it believes I'm swearing, like saying "the excrement of influenza" :D :D :D :D :D

    EDIT 2: it even censors it from the posted URL:
    http://miska.borec.cz/flu****.php :)D )

    EDIT 3: OK, paste it in a browser page and correct the asterisks :D :D :D :D :D

    EDIT 4: :)D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D )

    EDIT 5: URL link works, courtesy of holvoetn.

    If you are using CleanStart then the spontaneous Soft Reset should be giving you plenty of DBCache.
    If you are interested, my CleanStart setings are HERE

    Does the Centro have the option:
    Menu > Options > Preferences > Advanced > 'Clear Cache on Exit'

    If this is not Ticked then this would be the first thing I would try.
    NOTE: This is not clearing the DBCache like OffFlush or Flush It but it may help.
    I believe the Blazer Cache actually works on the Centro as opposed to the TX, I still keep mine Ticked though.

    Other than that I would guess an incompatible app especially since it happens all the time. You could try:
    • Launch CleanStart and un-tick a 'suspect' app
    • Soft Reset and don't use the 'suspect' app
    • Test Blazer

    Lastly, I don't know and have never used CmdWay so I am not putting the blame on it but apps/hacks that do the sort of thing it does are the first ones I look at when problems arise.

    All the best, woz of oz

    agree w/ woz, re: clear cache on exit, and his other comments as well

    if you do try Flush·It, you may need to use its option to run after exiting every app, since you are having the reset problem upon exit

    Yeah, I know, but it's nice to talk to the inanimate objects :) Anyway, I ain't actually doing it. It's better to adjust my posting abilities to the current restrictions, than promoting a change that indeed would allow swearing. I'm not the problem, but the members that can actually erode the decency status here.
