Warm/Cold Booting your Datalogic Falcon X3

There are three ways to reset the Datalogic Falcon X3 mobile computer:

  1. A warm boot terminates an unresponsive application and clears the working RAM, but preserves the file system. The registry is restored from persistent memory available or returned to factory default.
  2. A cold boot forces all applications to close, completely re-initializing the system. A cold boot also clears the working RAM while preserving the existing file system. The registry is restored from persistent memory.
  3. A clean boot restores the X3 to a clean configuration: both the registry and the file system returns to a clean status and resets your device to its factory default state.
