    I can only agree with Leeshor, rooting, even cold boots etc seems to me to be a little extreme, I would be unhappy if I had to do stuff like this on my desktop just to keep it going. I am sure that there are reasons when this kind of action may be necessary but surely only as a last resort. The consequences of getting it wrong seem to me to be too great. Great Forum.

    Ps, been all round the Browsers, but gone back to stock.

    Not sure why a cold boot is extreme, keep in mind this is NOT a data wipe, it just clears out some cobwebs (caches) during boot on the Asus devices.

    Also, I have found that because Asus does not use top of the line NAND Flash chips in their devices, over time (say 4-6 months) the internal memory (/sdcard/) starts to get slow. I have found a full wipe (if stock, factory reset, if running a custom ROM it is a FORMAT DATA) helps IMMENSELY to speed the device up.

    My clue when it is time is when Play Store updates are happening and my device is unusable. I usually do it about every 4-6 months. Yes, I am rooted, and even this does not help fix the issue. THere is a root app called LagFix that helps a bit, but does not fix it the same way a factory reset or format data does.

    I am "forced" to root my TF-101 because on my desktop I use Thunderbird POP e-mail. I need to access my e-mails whilst away from home (2 - 4 weeks at a time) and T'Bird does not run on Android. So, I need to root the tablet so I can run Ubuntu and hence T'Bird.

    There is no way I am ever rooting my TF300T. As much as I am tempted - I love to tinker - my wife would kill me if I bricked my $500 toy. There would be exactly zero chance of me getting another one ever. The Transformer has been solid, actually, and I would much rather root my crappy Samsung Blaze phone which I have to Factory Reset every couple of months, but for the same reason, I don't want to go back to using whatever flip phone I have in the attic if I brick that.

    As for the Cold Boot problem, it is my understanding that Windows machines basically do a cold boot every time you restart them. That may have changed with the Windows 7 push for faster boot times, but I thought that they did a cache cleanup and even a Registry scan as part of the boot cycle. That may be part of the reason that Tech Support always has you reboot, although I doubt they know that. I would be curious to see an outline of the Android and Windows startup/cold boot sequences. Anyone know where to find those?
