    Default Add reboot and recovery to your power menu options.

    Zip File
    Credit to snq- from XDA for making this possible. This works on SR, Virtuous and should work on most other FROYO, SENSE DEODEXED roms ONLY!!!!!

    Onto what it does:



    *Download, place on SD card reboot into recovery, select 'install zip from sd card', select 'choose zip from sd card, find the zip and install.
    ***Remember to make a nandroid first.

    God I love Cyanogen I love these menu options make it so much nicer when needing to get to recovery or the bootloader!

    very nice, i think i still prefer quick boot. its faster to hit that and reboot than holding the power button down or whatever.

    Curious, does quick reboot shut the phone down incorrectly though. I mean you select it then bam the phone reboots. While when you shut the phone off it goes thru the power down process thing. Anyone have an opinion either way?

    Quickboot is exactly that, more of a reset switch than a full power down power on situation. Rather it matters or not I have no clue, but it couldn't hurt to shut it down properly here and there and do it the right way just in case.

    What's been your experience? Has the phone felt any different to you? (I believe the answer would be no since you still use it)

    correct no difference in feel once it boot back up. I will still add the option from above since its nice to have them there too.

    Seems to be working correctly as most rom cookers are adding it to their roms now.

    If you have a custom lockscreen loaded, like the rotary one you can get with Virtuous 2.7, this will not work with this mod. I loaded this up and and changed my lock screen to something else. Oh well. Extended Control widget lets me add a reboot button, so it's not a must have for now.
