Ok, so I was troubleshooting a few items, and booted my TouchPad into recovery mode. I do not want to doctor (I already have once last week). How can I get out of recovery mode? Holding the power button doesn't work, and since I can't do a battery pull it would be shame if I had to wait for the battery to drain (it's full).

Can anyone help?

Happened to me on day 1. There is a soft reset button combo. It's something like power + center button. hold tap ... something just mash buttons

No idea if this was it, or if I was just too impatient with my other combinations.

I held center button first, and then power. Probably 15-20 seconds...it then booted normally.

For all I know, it could have been I just didn't wait long enough on the power button. Posting as an FYI if someone else ends up needing this, or wants to merge this with a more relevant thread.
