Hello, great app :) I have only two notes.
Please add possibility to keep default brightness in WAKE LOCK mode (I use Mi A3 based on Android ONE and with button active it keeps screen awake, but after some time screen dimms)
Another point is to add button which would turn on MAX BRIGHTNESS (very helpful in some cases) and.. if possible such button would switch off/on AUTOMATIC BRIGHTNESS button simultaneously, or simply restore default system AUTOMATIC BRIGHTNESS settings after switching off the button.
Version 3 will be released very soon.
It has the wakelock option. It will be accessible from long pressing the wakelock control.

The brightness option would be added on a later update.

Great, now I see that WAKELOCK function works perfectly, I am looking forward for the button which turns on MAX Brightness :)

I have one more issue: In 3.0 version still there is problem with keeping permissions in "accesibility features" ON - it switches OFF automatically after some time, then SCREENSHOT button in Power Menu is inactive, when I turn on manually then button is active, but doesn't function (no screenshot made). I have Mi A3 on clean android ONE and without root.

Please check any other accessibility app. If they also turn off after sometime, you would know that it's system problem.

Accessibility service works fine for me. I do not know how to reproduce this on my device.

OK I will check it once again, I mean new build of ROM, becouse as for now too little apps from my portfolio needs this accesibility. I hope it is only a ROM version issue, as Mi A3 is based on Android ONE which is theoretically clean system...

Wow, fantastic! I wish I could have Tasker tasks on the same page with the phone settings - in other words let each page have a variety of types of controls.

The app looks like a nice start. I shall be following this project.

The app, version 3.0.1, is not always fully working for me (sometimes it works, sometimes it does not). The stated problem is given to be related to the Power menu controls accessibility service which is given to be malfunctioning.

I tried the 3.0.1 version app on an LG V20 US996 using the lineage-18.1-20210722-nightly-us996-signed.zip build of Lineage OS 18.1. I use Magisk 22.1 (app and mod) for root.

Hello everybody,
I use this app in version 3.0.1 on a MIA3 with Android 11.
It has always worked pretty well, but recently the screenshot function has a problem, a shadow of the application remains on the captured image, ie the "Power menu controls" screen does not turn off fast enough, or the screenshot is taken too much quickly....
Anyone have this problem? any attempt to solve ...?
Of course I tried to restart the device, disable all unnecessary apps, etc ...

Thanks in advance

I know it's been said as a warning when one installs the app but just in case there is doubt, I have a galaxy note 10+ with android 11/one UI 3.1 not rooted and it's definitely not working. The power menu remains the same

Hi. When you turn on the flashlight, it requires unlocking, entering a pin code or a fingerprint. This is not convenient, because the flashlight turns on from the curtain without unlocking. You can fix it? Thanks

I just came across your project from an article, thank you dev!

I'm wondering about two things.
1) will this app add or enable a power menu on phones that don't have one, like Xiaomi Redmi Note 9/10 and Samsung A52s with Android 11?
2) my Oneplus 7T Pro has the power menu. The only drawback is having to switch between different tabs for different apps. In my case Tasker and a door lock app. Will your app enable me to use all apps' controls in one menu?

great app! i am using it on my moto edge 20 fusion (a11, root with magisk) and it's working well.

my wishlist for possible added buttons in future releases:
- auto sync on off toggle
- wifi on off toggle
- battery saver toggle
- aeroplane mode toggle
- do not disturb toggle

thank you :)

I am not the dev, but as a user, most (if not all) of the above toggles come as standard QuickPanel toggles already.n So they would be a big duplication into somewhere more difficult to access quickly.

yes, that is correct. however the quick panel on my moto stock a11 at least (even rooted) cannot be made inaccessible on the lock screen. i don't like to have those toggles accessible on the lockscreen. and that means i can't have them in my quickpanel, so having them in the power menu is a great alternative. at least until i find a way to restrict access to the quick panel on the lock screen...

i already do have access to those toggles in the power menu via a different app "toggle status widget' though, so the current setup works well enough for me. but that means i have two menus that i have to switch between on the power menu to see everything. ideally it would be great for all the toggles to appear in the one single menu on the power menu, hence my wishlist.

Hi @SayantanRC. A really neat app.

My wishlist for possible added buttons in a future release:
- reboot into Recovery
- reboot into Bootloader/ Download mode

These would require a root option in settings.

Thank you for Power menu controls!

@trevtdogg no, those entries are not part of PMC but of another app of yours. Can you look which app and share? Because the app I've been trying in Android 11 to add these entries to the power menu (Classic Power Menu) keeps on not displaying the added menu items right away but only after a delay.

    Power menu controls

    Android 11 has a power menu which is mostly used for home controls. But if you are not using any smart home appliance, the space is basically wasted.
    This app adds handy device toggles to the space.

    Examples:
    • Rotation lock
    • Wake lock
    • Screen timeout
    • Brightness toggles
    • Media volume toggles
    Some setup screenshots from users:

    Awesome app !!
    Can you add Airplane mode?
    No. No way to properly enable airplane mode with or without root.
