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.

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.

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

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

    And a lot of people are addicted to the phone, checking social media or talking with someone. Some exercise in the gym while being glued to the phone, not even activity takes them away from it

    And I was like that too, until I left social media. Now sometimes I'm grabbing my phone, opening the browser and thinking: I've seen everything I wanted to see, I don't have a reason to use the phone. And I put it down

    I didn't make case, I made my manoeuver to park the car. But I caught them off-guard, the one ahead hit the brakes and had to jump from the scooter. For a second I thought he would go against the car. They were trying to race through a gap they perceived, thinking I was going to always drive forward
