QuickPull Updated To 1.1.2 – Free Soft Reset Application

Tom let me know that the QuickPull application we told you about previously has been updated. QuickPull is essentially a free application that simulates a battery pull on your BlackBerry. I find it funny that the new version lets you schedule a reboot at the same time every day… 🙂

You can pick up the new version free in the store at this link

The new 1.1.2 version brings:

  • Ability to schedule QuickPull to run at a specified time every day. (Note: This relies on input simulation so the device cannot be locked or holstered)
  • Integration with AutoStandby. QuickPull will automatically exit AutoStandby to perform a scheduled reset.
  • Slightly improved logging and error handling to help diagnose problems easier.

From the description:

From the makers of AutoStandby and BerryAnnoying comes QuickPull, a FREE tool that frees memory quickly by simulating a “battery pull” soft reset. QuickPull is extremely easy and convenient to use. Compatible with almost all BlackBerry devices, including the Storm!
QuickPull 1.1.2 Changes:


  • FREE
  • Simulates a “battery pull” equivalent reset
  • Integrates with AutoStandby
  • Ability to schedule to run daily
  • Frees available memory
  • Combats memory leaks
  • Less than 30k in size
  • Easy push-button use

Display Dimensions: 240 x 160, 240 x 240, 240 x 260, 240 x 320, 320 x 240, 480 x 360, 480×320
Operating Systems Supported: 4.2, 4.3, 4.5, 4.6, 4.7

  1. Daily reboot is intended to reset the device at a time when you typically aren’t using it in order to minimize low memory effects (and who has not suffered from that?!?). 😉

  2. I get the same java.lang.illegalargument error i got from the last version. I am using a T-Mo 8320

  3. Just installed software got the same Java error

  4. I just installed Quickpull and it works well. Have a T-mo 8320

  5. I like the idea of it automatically doing its thing, but since I have to keep mine locked (just try having unlocked Blackberry with a 1 year old!) It won’t help me. Alas. I will upgrade anyway just cuz I do that sort of thing and I will keep running it manually every day. Man, I sure wish RIM would fix the memory leak from 4.2 that is still present in at least CDMA that makes an app like this necessary.

  6. This app has a bug in it. I tryed to do the scheduling at 2:00Am but when you go back and check it, it says 11:33 PM.
    For the storm my friend Has he tryed to change the time and can’t get it to work.
    It won’t let you click on ok to save it.
    Need some work!

  7. Getting the java.lang.illegalargument error as well on an 8130 running Switched all permissions to “allow” and still same thing. Every version of this program does the same thing. Ugh.

  8. Doesnt work if you have it scheduled when its in bedside mode. It will ask after you pull it off charging.

  9. BB Storm and I get the same java error as everyone above also….

  10. I don’t get the java error but the scheduled reboot doesn’t work properly. I tested it by scheduling it 1 minute ahead of the current time and it did reboot….but failed everytime after that.

    As for automan’s post about the incorrect time, when you open the scheduler area, it will always show the current time rather than the scheduled time you had set.

  11. is it me or do other Storm users find it hard to navigate through the prompts..?

  12. I just got a Storm Yesterday. I get the untaught exception error when I try to launch this.

  13. Z has updated the program to address the scheduling issue. The new version can be found at
