Reboot without PIN code query? [answered]

Is it possible to reboot Jolla without having to enter PIN code?

I don't mean entirely disabling PIN code queries, just looking for a way to get rid of entering PIN after every reboot.

I wonder why and how many times you do a reboot.

Try SailfishReboot from the store. It might do that but I don't remember.

It is only possible if you disable the PIN query from the simcard options.

And this is not something that is going to change, it is a mandatory ETSI requirement. It is not something that should be wantonly changed even though of course it in theory could be possible to cache the PIN in the device and use it from there.

Just face it, it is forbidden.

And really I'd like to know what is your use case for such a silly requirement? Why do you boot your device so often it bothers you?

My use case for this requirement is fairly simple. When using N9 this kind of reboot was possible, though rarely useful as I was able to use several days, even weeks with no need to reboot. So I got used to the idea I don't have to enter PIN unless I power down the phone.

With Jolla the interval is not something like 10 days, but rather 10 hours. Especially when using Android software, crashes are frequent. Most problems I've had with Viber and Pivo, and when these apps cause problems, I usually can't start any Android software until reboot. And yes, I have tried utilities to restart Dalvik/stop Android runtime, but it doesn't solve the problem.

It is not too rare either, that Sailfish apps too start getting unresponsive. For example the browser somewhat often triggers continuous "not responding" notifications and only way to stop this seems to be reboot.

I doubt you can do that on N9, and if so, then you are not booting the device, rather just restarting the user interface. If it was possible then the device would violate UE network specifications and it would be a severe bug indeed.

(If you just want to restart the UI, the same thing on Jolla is doable with "killall lipstick" as devel-su)

There is an app called Reboot for N9 which does what I'm looking for. I don't know precisely what it does, but at least uptime counter starts from zero after that. Probably the trick is discussed in:

Thanks for pointing out that just knocking down lipstick may be enough, I'll give it a try.

Kicking lipstick usually is pretty good way to restart all the applications that show some kind of UI. :)

That's why my uptime currently is pretty nice: 12:08:35 up 25 days, 11:36, 1 user, load average: 2.42, 4.41, 3.36
