Hi,
 
I'vefound this method works best especially on Window Mobile versions, windows CEdoes not seem to have the problem.

  1. Have the battery inserted, 
  2. Remove the battery so its at the first stage of removal,
  3. Hold down the On/Off button and trigger,
  4. Insert the battery, still with On/Off button and trigger held,
  5. As soon as the amber light flashes release the On/Off button and trigger.
  6. Unit will attempt to cold boot and then warm boot,
  7. If it works then it will boot through to the Windows Splash screen or desktop.
  8. If it fails and continuously warm boots, remove the battery fully as soon as it cycles a warm boot.
  9. The terminal will not switch off at this stage and will completely drain the backup battery and RAM, giving you a complete clean cold boot
  10. Leave the battery out fro 20 minutes.
  11. Power on and see how far you get. 
If it stillfails after this I would suggest a complete re-flash of the system. Please posta follow up question on how to do this.
Hopethis helps.

this is because you are cold booting the unit. Everytime you cold boot a 9090 it re-sets all saved settings. You need to warm boot only unless you want the unit reset to default. any problems please mail technical@codeo.co.uk for support - we supply MC9090's in refurbished condition complerte with like new warranty incase you need any

Motorola MC9090 CE clean boot


This will get you BSP 35. Before you install it, completely delete (and back up) everything in the \Application directory, as that is the only cold boot persistent directory. There may be other instructions included with the download for wiping everything out as well, so be sure and read through all the documentation and release notes first.

MC9090-GFOHJEFA6WR Frozen on warmboot


The 9090 will continuously reboot when someone has cold booted it and has held the trigger down too long after the cold boot. What it's doing is looking for OS update files in the proper directory to do a system update. When it doesn't find them it just reboots again continuously.

To get out of this, cold boot it again but release the trigger right after you push in the battery.

Not ABLE to switch on MC9090. tried replacing the battery . Held the power button for 2 mins . nothing is working. Is there any key combination to start the reader ? please help.


I know it may be a little late now since you're question was a couple months ago, but I have had this problem with some 9090's before too where a warm boot (holding the power button down) will not bring them up, but a cold boot always does (unless of course it truly is defective - that's not usually the case though).

To do a cold boot, pop the battery out part of the way until it "catches" (you'll know what I mean if you have an MC9090 and try it). Then hold down the trigger and the power button simultaneously while pushing in the battery all the way. Once the battery has been pushed in, release the power button and the trigger.

This should cause the MC9090 to boot up fine. Make sure you release the trigger after doing the steps above. Sometimes people don't do that, and this causes the MC9090 to go into an infinite warm boot where it just continuously reboots over and over. The only way to get out of it is to cold boot again, but this time release the trigger in time.

Thanks,
