CyanogenMod 6.1 does quickboot

You’ve probably heard recently that the quickboot feature on the HTC Desire HD has been ported, along with a full ROM, to a couple other devices. It looks like this feature caught the eye of the CyanogenMod team, as a tweet came out this morning from @cyanogen, which simply stated:

Yeah, CM6 “does” too :)

Included in the tweet was a link to a YouTube video showing off the fastboot option on a CM6.1 device. For those who don’t know, the quickboot option works by actually hibernating the device instead of doing a complete shutdown. Video below. Be sure to let us know what you think in the comments!

    DONT CALL IT FASTBOOT. It’s a “quick” boot because it’s not actually turning it off. Fastboot is reserved for spl functions.

    So this means it still uses power when turned off? so it’s like hibernation

    most definitely some fail in here… the phone doesn’t even turn off…

    I think you guys are confusing hibernate with suspend (sleep). While suspend uses a small bit of power to keep the RAM on, hibernate basically saves the CPU state and RAM content to non volatile drive (in this case flash memory) and then fully shutting down the hardware.
    Power usage would be the same as if the phone is off which is very minimal.
    Even when the phone is off, the battery is still slowly losing power, albeit very very slowly
