    Default Re: reboot

    As far as I know, there aren't any apps that let you reboot an Android device without root. Shutdown and reboot commands do require root permissions to be executed by third-party apps.

    Default Re: reboot

    Even altering the reboot menu requires root access.

    To the OP, why do you need the reboot option?
    Holding the power button simulates a battery pull and is pretty close to a reboot.
