Based on the platform/system/core repository you linked above, I think the key is in libcutils/android_reboot.c. And important definitions are in include/cutils/android_reboot.h; namely: /* Commands */ #define ANDROID_RB_RESTART 0xDEAD0001 #define ANDROID_RB_POWEROFF 0xDEAD0002 #define ANDROID_RB_RESTART2 0xDEAD0003 Usually in normal ...

IDK which Recovery (stock/custom) your device is running because in my device CWM 6.0 for Android 4.2.1 shows "Install zip from sideload" option. Anyhow, I've verified that both options points to same thing i.e. sideloading from PC. This option will allow you to push a .zip file into the device accompanied by an automated installation of it.

In there I found the installer (UniversalAdbDriverSetup6.msi) and the source code for it. After running it, my iRulu U2 is now recognized by Device Manager as HTC Android Interface:

My phone does this, too. I wish I knew why. I seem to have had some success with the sendevent command (adb shell sendevent). (Not much documentation on sendevent, unfortunately.) First, I had to locate the Power Key device via getevent -i. In my case, I found /dev/input/event4 had a name like pmic8xxx_pwrkey, and used this for my sendevent call. # ...
