Here in the digital XDA newsroom, we spend our days pouring over an average of 2,500 news items and forum threads every 24 hours. Only the most timely and interesting bits survive the editing process, but the portal's front page still sees weekly counts in excess of 100 posts. This is a glut of content to absorb, especially if following the news cycle isn't your full-time job. However, the tech world is vast, and the information must flow. With this in mind, please...
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.
