Depending on your Android device, the power menu comes with additional options that you can access with a single click. While some devices come with options like Reboot and Screenshot, but there is a workaround to add shortcuts to Android power menu.

This added functionality comes with the NeoPowerMenu module from the Xposed Installer, which has been developed by DrAcHe981. The module comes with a bunch of preloaded options that you can simply add to the power menu of your Android device.

Things you Need:

  • A rooted Android device.
  • Xposed Framework installed on the Android device.
  • “Unknown Sources” enabled on your device.

Step 1: Download the NeoPowerMenu from Xposed Installer

On your Android device, head over to the Xposed Installer app and navigate to the Download menu. In the search bar, type in “NeoPowerMenu” and tap on the first result that shows up.
