If it works like other "hot boot" apps and functions, then it basically restarts the Android GUI processes/threads. There was an XDA news post a while back after someone made an app for it where the app author described it as such: Hot reboot by rebooting only the graphical Android shell. From what I know it's sort of equivalent to restarting your X ...

Assuming you installed ClockworkMod Recovery via Rom Manager app (or manually), you can do the following: Install the Appbrain and Fast Web Installer apps.

/emmc is basically ok and accessible if you can 'mount' it. You already have a working CWM installed which comes with adb enabled. This gives you some options. Boot to CWM recovery and mount your partition in the 'mounts and storage' section. It's now accessible internally and you can use the adb tool (ADB stands for 'Android debug bridge', it's usually used ...

No, it is because at first boot (ie: inizialization), Android creates a Battery stat file to calibrate the battery. After the first boot, you can start Android with any battery percentage. If you think that after a long time, the battery percentage is not correctly reported, you can force Android to recreate the stats file with some root utilities available ...

First, launchers are apps like all other apps you can install. Which means: per se, there should be no problems -- but they of course might have bugs and, in rare cases, side effects. Again, this is not limited to launchers. So far for the "generic info". Now specifically for the launcher: After having installed a launcher (Nova should be fine, Apex might ...

As Matthew already stated, there's no unique answer possible to your question -- all depends on your usage patterns. Generally spoken, I'd say moving app data should be preferred: If you move the Dalvik Cache, it would affect all your apps -- while moving the app data only affects apps which store some data (and by "some" I mean "data size exceeds their ...

First of all, it always a good thing to have USB Debugging on. It can help you check your phone and even recover it if something is wrong. When your phone is on a boot loop and won't start correctly, you can use adb to check where might be the problem. Connect your phone via the USB cable to a PC with adb and then type the following: adb logcat Power ...

Miui en Cyagenmod are so called ROM's. ROM's are like modified versions of the original Android OS.

There is this tool called RSD Lite, which is (AFAIK) an internal tool from motorola to flash their phones. You should be able to find it around the googles. And here you should be able to pick up a stock firmware for the Defy. This method worked for my Moto Cliq XT, but don't let this be a guarantee for your Defy!
