Android host reboot

The ability to reboot an Android phone while remoted in would be helpful.

Re: Android host reboot

Also, being able to do so, straight from the TeamViewer Computers & Contacts menu or even from the online dashboard, without the need to actually initiate a remote session would be very nice. I see many applications where this would be extremely useful and also would save so much time ;)

Re: Android host reboot

It's not the prettiest solution, but this works:

1. Make sure Teamviewer Host is on INTERNAL/PHONE storage, not the SD card.  (If it's on the SD card, Teamviewer can't auto-restart).

2. Install the app "Button Savior." (the non-root version works).  Start up Button Savior and turn on the Accessibility Services.  Now, there will be an overlay on the right side of the screen that will pop open a series of icons for hardware keys, including the POWER button.  You can press/hold that icon as if it were the hardware power button, and reboot the phone.
