I bought one of these. Works fine - has iGO GPS app that is just great in Aus and NZ. It also has a raft of other things (bluetooth, videos, photos etc etc).

I got curious about unlocking it - found a site that said all I had to do was add a file YCF2CE.bld to th root of the SD card. Did that - lo and behold I got a Windows CE login screen. Mini-XP and all that. 

I can find (and run) the iGO GPS app but not the others. Now I want to put it back to where it was. So I deletd the extra file. All I need is a cold reboot.

Trouble is I have to power down to do a cold reboot and there's no obvious way to do that.

I tried letting the battery die, but it's too cunning for that - it does a tidy shutdown when the battery gets low. Reconnect the power, press "go" and bing - back to the WinCE screen.

Any ideas anyone?
