Thanks, it seems like a proper command but should someone confirm it before closing? I haven't tweaked my way to root access yet.

would be cool if someone here would create a small app for this, like the reboot app..

The functionality has been requested to be added to the Reboot app: https://openrepos.net/content/morpog/reboot#comment-form The developer haven't shown any reaction yet, though.

There is now a dedicated app for this: https://openrepos.net/content/schturman/alien-dalvik-restart
