Reboot from terminal?



  • How do I reboot my phone from the terminal, without having to type the password? I have a cron-job running to check connectivity, and I would like the script to able to boot the phone under certain circumstances. I tried adding: Cmnd_Alias SHUTDOWN_CMDS = /sbin/poweroff, /sbin/shutdown, /sbin/reboot & phablet ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: SHUTDOWN_CMDS with visudo after remounting / as rw, but it still prompts me. Any ideas?

  • In my terminal, "sudo reboot" works. Does "reboot" or "sudo reboot" work in your cron job?



  • Well "sudo reboot" works, but it prompts me for the password. I tried adding the job to sudo's crontab, but that doesn't work. The solution I described in post 1 works on a desktop ubuntu. After doing what I described, "sudo reboot" reboots the machine without prompting for password.
