Default [Q] Cannot get phone to reboot after Greenify install

So I installed Greenify last night, I have no idea if it has caused this but it was the last thing I did before my phone went kaput so I am working on that theory now. Last thing my phone did was have the bar "Greenify has been granted SuperUser" or words to that effect and then hung. I tried a reboot at this point by holding down the power button for 10 seconds, screen turned off but phone did not reboot. From that point my phone has been completely unresponsive.

The phone registers as there when plugged into my PC, but doesn't show up to move files to/from. Also when plugging in a UTG cable the phone powers external devices. I am thinking at this point of running the battery down till the phone HAS to switch off and then plugging it in and seeing if anything different happens. Any other advice would be appreciated.

I have encountered this when I tried ART instead of Dalvik. if you use ART, I would suggest you try Dalvik.

My phone did the same after installing the Root companion for GSAM battery monitor. Like you said it at least responded when the usb cable was plugged in. So it was fortunate enough that I could just open the command prompt and reboot the device with adb commands.

adb reboot

You can restart your phone manually. Press the vol up and power button together and hold until the phone reboots. It will take a while so just wait.
