Factory reset on the touch
This is question for the Kobo developers.
I know that it is possible to restore the factory settings by pressing the Home button while powering on the device. This is a very useful feature when hacking into the system.
I would like to know if that reset is performed by the booloader or by a linux process (nickel?). Simply speaking, can I brick my Touch if I messed up some of the linux startup files such as inittab or rcS?
