Reboot the Shell Only with Hot Reboot for Android

If your Android device starts acting funny, what do you do? That’s right, you reboot the device and everything goes back to normal. But, what if there was a faster way to solve your issues? Many times, the culprit of any and all failures is the shell itself. This can be easily terminated via any of the available task managers out there, but here is a better solution. XDA member appelflap has developed an app that will only reboot the Android shell. This has several advantages, like the fact that you will not have to go through menus and/or lists of apps to find the shell to stop it. Also, it is faster than performing a soft reset. And best of all, it is a one touch kill.

Please be sure to test this and leave any feedback for the dev.

root needed (+su, SuperUser and busybox)

Hot reboot by rebooting only the graphical Android shell. No more task killers, task manager etc. just hot reboot once in a while 

2 times as fast (at least) as a normal reboot on my Samsung Galaxy S…

Note: This is a no-nonsense app. Clicking on it will immediately initiate a reboot.

You can find more information in the application thread.
