Shutdown and Reboot Your Phone from the Sony LiveView
If you’re the lucky owner of a Sony LiveView, you’re probably accustomed to using the smartwatch to control your mobile phone. From reading live Tweets and Facebook posts to controlling your media playback, the LiveView gives you quite a bit of added convenience for various tasks that would otherwise require you to power on your device’s display.
Now thanks to XDA Forum Member jkok, you can perform two more tasks from the LiveView: rebooting and powering off your phone. Jkok’s app gives you the option to reboot to recovery, bootloader, and system, as well as to shutdown your device. It allows you to select from these actions by swiping on the left and right touch pads, and you can execute the selected action by hitting the select button. It’s as simple as that.
If you own a Sony LiveView and would like to use it to have a bit more control over your smartphone, head over to the original thread and give this a whirl.
