2BOrange Flashing Tool Given Substantial Update

Just short of a year ago, the XDA Portal brought you coverage of a promising application called 2BOrange. The premise of the application was simple. Kernels, ROMs, and scripts are uploaded to the 2BOrange servers. Next, the app would install the aforementioned development work with just a couple of clicks, thereby avoiding many potential flashing problems.

It’s been awhile, but 2BOrange is back. XDA Senior Member snoopy33 has released a new beta, bringing a more stable experience and even a developer interface. From the user side, it is much like the old beta. According to snoopy33:

As a user:
– download a ROM / Kernel… from our server and install it with two click
– get push notification when update are available
– Protect your phone against loss with a GPS localizer.
– Backup / Restore your phone
– Uninstall system application
– Kill background tasks
– get some technical information about your device

While the end-user feature list has the same basic elements of the first beta, the there are new features for users to try out. On the development side of things, devs have the option of using the app to build and distribute their work. Says snoopy33:

As a developer:
– upload your stuff on www.2borange.com server
– create your own script to manage your ROM
– add some add on package easily

The application itself is similar with ROM Manager, the current go-to application for users looking to easily install ROMs and custom recoveries. However, Snoopy33 thinks that there are a few improvements over current solutions such as Google C2DM push functionality.

If you’d like to give the new beta a spin, you can find download links, a wealth of information and more, check out the application thread. As with any software that can flash ROMs, be sure to make a backup before attempting.

Samsung Galaxy S6 To Receive Major Camera Update

When the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were launched, they became the prime focus for all discussions as Samsung took a break on their traditional design philosophy and opted for something that their flagship lineup hadn't seen before. But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
