Reboot Options App For Xperia Variants
For the Xperia X10/X8/X10 mini and X10 mini pro owners out there, you might be aware that XDA forum members DooMLoRD and MrHassell have developed and app to provide some reboot options in a convenient menu.
The app currently features:
- Widget icon
- Fast power off
