I searched the web to automatically power on my lenovo tablet after connecting the charger, but all the guides are for samsung and some other brands. File /system/bin/playlpm doesn't exist in lenovo S6000:

Is there any universal method for all androids? I may need this for a brandless chinese tablet(but now for lenovo). I just want to power on the android as soon as charger is connected.


One solution could be following: you need to edit boot.img ramdrive content and have su installed it to work.

unpack boot.img and extract init.rc from ramdrive. Add following to the end of file:

#Check if chargermode and start rebootit service.
on property:ro.bootmode=charger
    start rebootit   

and after it added following:

#rebootit service which command reboot
service rebootit /su/bin/su /system/bin/reboot -c reboot now
    user root

then re-pack ramdrive and boot.img and flash it.

Got working with this method on Lenovo TAB 2 A10-30
