//----[ ANNOUNCEMENT ]----\\



DooMLoRD & MrHassell proudly present to u...
xCharge Reboot Options [a.k.a. Xperia Reboot Options]



firstly i would like to thank Bin4ry & Androxyde for the FlashTool and the option to "reboot into xrecovery from flashtool" as this APP is based on that..

and to my good friend MrHassell for doing the xcharge base coding, teaching & guiding me to develop android apps....

thanks to everyone who has done the testing and provided invaluable feedback/comments


we are finally ready with a new version and its directly released to market!!!

get it here:

xCharge Reboot Options





its a paid app for 2$

new features include:
  1. cleaner layout
  2. new UI
  3. working themes!
  4. and u will be entitled to future upgrades


if u like the app please buy the paid app to support our work

P.S.: Older versions are available in 2nd post and will be kept for XDA users...


Requirements:
  1. Any of the following supported devices
  2. Phone needs to be rooted with Busybox installed
  3. Any Working Version of Recovery
  4. [Xperia Arc/Play/Neo ONLY] For "Reboot into FASTBOOT mode" u need to connect device (via USB) to PC and have fastboot drivers installed



Supported Devices:
  1. Xperia X10
  2. Xperia X8
  3. Xperia X10 Mini
  4. Xperia X10 Mini Pro
  5. Xperia Arc
  6. Xperia Play
  7. Xperia Neo
  8. Lots of other non Xperia devices too!!! check this post for all supported devices


Extra:

[For Xperia X10 ONLY] ability to reboot into custom kernel (provided bootkit files are present)
this option is specifically ment for those users who have FreeXperia recovery installed and have followed this How-To for testing custom kernel
so if u have the custom bootkit installed (miniloader, splboot.ko, boot.img) u can activate the custom kernel on next boot up without the need to be at ur comp to do: in FLASHTOOL menu Advanced -> Kernel -> Reboot custom Kernel
the Reboot Custom Kernel option basically provides u an easier way to do the above right from ur phone!!!



Warning:

DO NOT TRY THIS IF U USE DATA2SD... THIS CANNOT WORK, FOR NOW, ALONG WITH DATA2SD...



Donations:

Now that the app is fairly complete and independently working, Donations are welcome!!!

if u feel that this app has helped u OR u think that the work i, along with others, put into making this app is worthy of donations, then click on the following link for buying me some coffee/beer/etc

Hello Doomlord fantastic work!!

Just a question, is the third option "Reboot custom kernel" working on x8 or x10 mini because the bootloader bypassing is not available yet??? if no are you planning to sort things out so make it work???

My regards,
Ribben
