It's in ROM, how does the program get deleted? And if it is deleted it is
deleted, resetting doesn't undelete things. The thing that runs the program
is a pointer to READ ONLY memory. It is the pointer that is deleted, not the
program. If the program itself has gone then not even a hard reset would
work. But that would also mean more serious issues- a corrupt ROM.
Yes, a hard reset should restore use of the program, but this is by creating
a pointer to the program, it doesn't produce the program from the ether. But
recreating the pointer you should be able to point to the program in READ
ONLY memory without hard resetting.
