*ONLY works with rooted phones!*

Root App to immediately shutdown your phone.

This app just asks you, if you are sure and then immediately turns off your phone using the 'reboot -p' command.

Note: This should be quite safe, but still, as your filesystems are not unmounted (just a sync call is made), there is the possibility that you may loose data. Therefore I do not take any warranty! USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!

If you use this app on a normal phone that is not rooted, it will HANG or DO NOTHING.

If you don't know what "rooted phone" means or how to root your phone or what the implications are... you should not use the app.

You can find the source code at GitHub: - 

App ChangeLog

  • * Using 'reboot -p' with su command directly, so you have to grant it permissions again (and you can remove the other one) - but now you can see for sure that this app only executes the reboot command.
  • * Notice is given if phone is not rooted or app has no permissions to run as superuser
  • * Shutdown is done in background thread, so it shouldn't freeze the phone anymore
  • * Cleanly terminate app after 15s, if shutdown did not work
  • * Overall improvements, better logging

    befehl So I see that lots of people like this app and I want to try it but it doesn't let me. I have a galaxy s2. I don't know how to root it. It goes to the part where it say okay , what? . I press okay and nothing happens. I really wanna use this app because my power button doesn't work anymore so please reply ?

  8. Rocco V-avatar

    cmd The shutdown app I had before required too many taps. I saw one that required only 1 tap but that runs the risk of accidental shutdowns. This ones just right. A tap, a confirmation dialog, another tap and your done. Simple, safe, perfect.

    timer Not much to say about an app that just shuts down your mobile other than it works perfectly. I don't use it for fear of wearing out the power button, I just think something as slick as a smartphone shouldn't rely on buttons in this day and age.

    2020 This does NOT do a graceful shutdown. It just turns off immediately. When I shut down using the power button, it does a graceful shutdown which takes some time. Another app with the same name by Allenfang does a graceful shutdown, use that if that's what you want.

    Ahhhh! This is wierd... uninstalling ● 1, you can hold botton down and shut it down no wasting , memory DUH

  13. A Google user-avatar

    Work's OK on my Ampe A10 Tablet 10.2", Simple and dose what it should without any fuss, too the point icon, every one should know what it dose, one icon one job, Click/yes and it's turned off, no need to hold the power button for 3 seconds.

    After installing about 25 apps into my Android Tv Box,I tried this one. Yes I should have tried this one first. It works perfectly on Android Tv Box to shut them off. Normally you cannot shut them down just sleep or most just reboot the box. +++++

  16. Brent Bauer-avatar

    works on GBOX Q 2.0 on occasion you need to reboot manually because app doesn't work

  17. Brianna Tolley-avatar

    Doesn't work right. I have an Insignia Flex tablet, and I'm not sure if it's the tablet or what, but I can't root it. I press okay on the rooting and allow pop-up, but nothing happens. I need a decent power button app that will work, because currently, my tablet's power button is messed up.

  18. Jun Donesa-avatar

    Doesn't having to answer yes or no defeat the purpose of shutdown app?

  91. A Google user-avatar

    It gets 3 stars because it works, needs options like; Disable/enable yes/no prompt Shutdown on loss of power
