Advanced Power Menu for Sense HD ROMS
If you’re running a Sense HD ROM on your mobile Android device and want to get more from the stock Power Menu, then take a look at this mod.
The stock Power Menu gives you the standard three options of ‘Power Off’,’Restart’ and ‘Airplane Mode’. Now, you can get much much more with XDA forum member snq-‘s mod.
The new Advanced Power Menu now offers, in addition to the standard options above, ‘Hibernate’,’Silent Mode’,’Vibration Mode’ and ‘Mobile Network’. These are self explanatory but there are some hidden gems that have been added to the ‘Restart’ menu.
These include a normal restart, a hot restart (which respawns the GUI and services without a full reboot), restart into the bootloader or restart into recovery.
For the mod to work, you must be running a Sense HD based ROM.
For full requirements and to download the mod, head on over to the modification thread.

As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites and vendors following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far....
