Shield TV Oreo: Add Reboot/Power Off

If you’re looking for a possible solution to adding a power/reboot option to the main interface of your Oreo powered Shield TV, I may have a suitable solution.

The app Power Menu (Root) from the regular Google Play Store offers a very simple and easy to use interface for performing power/boot sort of operations from a single easy app.  Unfortunately, this doesn’t appear as a NATIVE app on the Shield TV so you cannot add it to your favorites and give it “omnipresence” on your home screen.

I modified the app so it shows up as an Android TV compatible app – and hence, you can add it to the Favorites menu easily.
