epad tabled hibernation with Tipster’s images

A small addendum to the post Modding & rooting the QMedia Tablet PC Qpc617 firmware.

When using GS_WMT216_V5.0_ACADEV_BLACK_EDITION, you’ll notice that the “hibernation” function is missing and that the device must be “shut down” or else it would drain the battery until it’s empty. Using this little trick, you can activate the “hibernate” option while shutting down:

– First, go to the market and download a shell app, I used “ConnectBot”.
– Once in the shell, type SU to become root
– Once root (the $ changes in #), type setenv hibernation_ui yes
– Then type reboot

Now your tabled will offer you to hibernate when shutting down (pressing the power button).
