Reboot phone daily with delay and possibility to stop task

Hi and welcome to the forum.

I believe that to reboot your phone, it would have to be rooted.
And what about rebooting at a time when you know it's never going to bother you, like for example 3am?

Otherwise, you can use a scene. In your task, add a Menu action, available in the Alert section.
The layout would be 'IconAndTextMenu'.
Then you can add items with an icon, text and the corresponding task to perform.
You could have a Confirm button to launch a separate task which would do the reboot and a Cancel button or rely on dismissing the pop up by clicking outside of it or on Back.

This should get you started...

As you're rooted, you could download Quickboot, which can be used as a Tasker plugin (although you may need to have the pro version) - I use this to do a reboot once a week (3am on a Sunday, I think).

I am a little tied up at the moment, but will try and have a look at this for you, if you'd like/don't get it worked out yourself :)
