Easily Reboot Your USB Connected Android Device
Android development on Windows is far from ideal. However, thanks to new tools and utilities, many developers are finding ways to develop for Android with less strife.
We’ve previously covered tools by XDA Senior Member regaw_leinad aimed at helping Android developers running Windows. First came the androlib.dll library, which allowed Windows to more easily communicate with Android devices. Using this library, regaw_leinad had developed quite a number of other tools, including the newest root method for the HTC Hero CDMA and the root method for the HTC EVO 4G LTE.
While the androlib.dll library is for anyone developing on Android, the tools made from it thus far have been device specific. However, regaw_leinad now wishes to start developing more tools for all Android users, rather than those on specific devices. His newest tool is a simple system tray applet dubbed RegawMod Rebooter, which offers one function—reboot any Android device currently connected to your PC. While certainly not the most significant development work out there, it highlights what androlib.dll can help other developers create.
Users can browse the various applications made with the library using the links above. Those who want to check out RegawMod Rebooter, you can do so in the original thread.
