    This is a very simple and quick utility that will reboot the Switch on being launched - thanks to XorTroll for wrapping the bpc service and making this possible!

    Simply load the .nro through the hbmenu (or load it through your profile icon/other for a "quick reboot" button) and the console will immediately reboot.

    An installable version created with The-4n's hacBrewPack is also available, with the titleID 0104561737950000.

    Nice. Would making a version that reboots it in RCM work?

    I believe that's more in the wheelhouse of Deja Vu - this is just using normal Switch system calls to reboot.

    Reboot into RCM via homebrew can only work on 1.0.0. Version 2.0 blocked that capability.

    Well, that's the trick - the two currently wrapped services are reboot and shutdown, and shutdown will reboot back into 'charging mode' - if you have autoRCM enabled, this means booting back into RCM, just in a much slower manner. If I can figure out a hard poweroff, I'll be sure to implement configuration to swap between them.

    Thanks for this, it would be amazing if I could switch freely between RCM mode and non-RCM mode

    So this allows to reboot from horizon to horizon ? Even with AutoRCM ?
    Does it then boot the same payload/kips than originally injected ?

    I've been waiting for this nice utility.
    There is no reason why we shouldn't reboot or shutdown the Switch from the joycons.
    Thanks a lot. I'll be waiting for the hard shutdown implementation from hekate.

    I don't get it. With this you can while in CFW reboot and appear in CFW again?

    I believe this to be the normal reboot function of Horizon which we can now trigger without hard pressing on the power button.

    It was written for somebody with a malfunctioning power button, and I figured I'd provide it for anyone else that may find some use for it.

    I tested it a couplpe of time and i think it is a hard reset, not the soft one. It is like when you keep pressing the power button for 12s and you hear a quick sound that pop off. i m looking for a similar homebrew but right now, i ll just wait for a "softer" reboot or poweroff homebrew. Like the one in 3DS called : 3DS quick shutdown or 3DS quick restart. Despite this, thank you Klock for your hard work man, much appreciated

    Yeah, I really didn't do anything here - XorTroll did the heavy lifting!

    An installable nsp created with hacBrewPack has been added to the release page, along with program icons for both versions.
