This does not work on the CDMA/LTE/Verizon Version, do NOT flash!

UPDATED FOR Ir8 DOWNLOAD BELOW

I realise there are a few of these floating around but this one is specifically for MCR and MCR derivatives. This will most likely work with other ROM's but I've not tested it so won't make that promise.

Features
  • Reboot from Power Menu
  • Reboot to recovery from Power Menu
  • Menu options in correct order
  • Shutdown/Reboot confirmation prompt removed
  • Auto backlight tweaks included (Paul's level 2)
  • MCR Ir8 framework optimisations included


Installation
  1. Download the appropriate file below
  2. Boot to recovery
  3. Please make a nandroid backup!!
  4. Flash the file you downloaded
  5. Hit thanks below...
  6. Reboot and enjoy!
Download
Select ONE of these files
  1. MCR Pre-Ir8 MCREnhancedPowerMenu-v1.zip
  2. MCR Ir8 MCREnhancedPowerMenu-Ir8.zip
Note that the first time you reboot your system may "Upgrade" - let that finish and it won't happen again.

This update zip replaces critical system files. A bad flash will result in a phone that does not boot. Please make a nandroid backup first!

Running this since seeing over on MoDaCo, but can also confirm your 'generic' APM worked fine on the MCR as well

Prefer the layout of this APM, though - good job!!

EDIT: You say it's 'Paul's level 2' - is this similar to your 'medium' level? Your level seemed to work better than Paul's but it could just be how I see it

Yep, medium.

OK, confusing you with someone else!

Either way, loving this. Always miss APM when it's not available

Functionally I don't think there are any differences. At first glance though his options are in a strange order. Edit: and as you note he has multiple backlight options.

Perhaps the only other difference, and I can't confirm, is that I used the MCR framework as a base, not the stock framework. As a result this edition retains any optimisations Paul has made... although he isn't explicit about these.

Essentially I wanted it do it and assure compatibility with MCR. I didn't check first whether other version worked on MCR.

Thanks for this. Would it be possible to have a reboot to bootloader option as well & maybe brightness level 1?

Whilst it is possible I don't think I'll make multiple versions although there is another thread with different versions.

Hopefully Paul will consider building this functionality into the MCR kitchen so we'll have all the options!

This caused a bootloop for my Galaxy Nexus LTE.
It would get to updating item 1-13 and reset.

That doesn't surprise me so much... what ROM were you using?

I didn't even see a CDMA version of MCR...

Edit: first post updated to clarify.
