Who uses the AOSP version of Android 5.0 Lollipop certainly noticed that the new menu has only one function: Shut down. Material Power Menu includes Restart, Soft Restart, Recovery, Bootloader, and Safe Mode.

Since the system does not allow the user to modify the menu or perform certain functions, the application is somewhat restricted for those who do not have it. root: Only a few functions are available, and they vary from device to device. That is, without root Material Power Menu just an app that shuts down and restarts your Android.

For those who have root the other story. All functions are available and you can even replace the AOSP menu with that of the application, but this requires the use of the Xposed module (which is included in the download from the Play Store). For those who want to add even more features to the menu, developer Naman Dwivedi has made the source code available on GitHub.

The app was created based on a visual concept created by Igor Silva, which is available on Dribble.

Although the app was very successful, I had problems with it: on my rootless LG G3 with Android 5.0 Lollipop, neither action worked, the app just gets stuck in the animation. However, LG's Android version kept the Reset and Airplane Mode options on the menu.

Did the app work well with you? Leave your impressions in the comments.
