    putting a hole in your battery cover to allow of soft resets.

    I haven't done it myself, but this is how I would go about it:

    Use a caliper to measure the diameter of the hole. measure from the top the highest point on the reset hole, then measure the highest point (smallest distance) of the reset hole from the bottom of the device. Transfer these measurements to the battery door. Take a drill bit the size of the diameter of the reset hole and carefully drill in between the two points. It would probably be best to lay the the battery cover on so that it forms a shape similar to a parabola which has a local minimum and place the measurements accordingly.

    Note that if you plan to use the stylus, the hole would need to be large, possibly weakening the cover.

    In any case, drill a 1 mm pilot hole to check the alignment.
    Game over!

    Huh? I think I'm not following something, but all I ever do is pull off the cover without disrupting the battery and poke the button with my stylus for a soft reset.

    Yeah, it's a pain isn't it?

    This is about the way I went at it. One of the best mods I've done.
    Yes you can take cover off and reset but it does become a pain after a bit
    when testing roms and such. It has had no adverse affect on my 650. I put
    a hole in silicone case also.

    Just a Reminder that many have had trouble w/ the paint coming off of the covers w/ the pre-made hole.
    So Yes, Do-it-Yourself.

    rather than make a hole, or pulling off the battery cover and then using the stylus, i just pull the battery cover, flip the battery up and then back down. do it for a while and you get really fast at resetting this way.

    How about just using a screen tap to do it and leave the stylus in the holder. Download MReset and tap the screen icon....or use the menu option to reset n Uninstall mnager which you should have on there anyway.
