Add the Reboot Option to Any Rooted Motorola Defy ROM
One of the things most rooted users who use custom ROMs can often take for granted is the Reboot option in the power menu. How often have users gone to that highly convenient option when something isn’t working quite right and a reboot is needed to fix the problem? The answer is, most likely, a whole bunch.
Users carrying around the Motorola Defy can now share in the Reboot functionality with a relatively simple modification. XDA Senior Member spear1304 has released a tutorial method that will take users of the Defy through a step by step process to add the Reboot to their power menus.
The mod itself is a tad complicated, as it features some apk modification and smali editing along with a little build.prop editing. However, spear1304 has been kind enough to post exactly what edits need to be made so users aren’t going into the endeavor blind. Spear1304 has also suggested that everyone use Notepad++ to edit the code, as using most stock OS notepads can cause issues with the code working.
If you’re a Moto Defy user and you’re looking for a little bit of a challenge or just want the Reboot option without flashing additional modifications, you can find download links, instructions and the whole step-by-step tutorial in the original thread. Don’t forget to make a backup of any file you edit, just in case something goes wrong.
