Extended Power Menu for Samsung Galaxy Ace

This patch adds items to power menu (The menu that pops up when you press & hold power key) : Reboot, Recovery, Firmware.

: You need a rooted & deodexed firmware.

Downside: If you have previously used any custom themes or something that make changes to framework-res.apk, this patch will overwrite them. You can use custom themes (Android Kitchen) after applying this update.

  2. Boot into recovery mode (Home + Power). Now mount /system.
  3. Navigate (with volume rocker), then select ‘Apply update from sdcard’ & Select ‘update.zip’
