ADB GUI Updated
You may remember an article back in April that talked about an app called ADB GUI. Well, XDA member minooch has not been sitting idle on this project, and for the last few months he has been updating and perfecting his tool. Most people nowadays simply flash zip packages through recovery, which include kernels, roms, radios, etc, but this tool will allow those who still like to use ADB to flash kernels and radios from their computers but easier than by using the plain ADB. The tool’s latest improvement includes the ability to check the MD5 sum of the radio package that you are flashing to ensure that you are flashing a good file and not a corrupted or fake one.
Please leave some feedback for the dev.
I finally got around to posting the new version – Version 1.0.1 – The main feature that has been added is synchronise. For example, you can select a folder full of music on your PC & it will copy all the music to your phone (if it’s not already on there), & if there is music on your phone thats not on your pc that will copy over as well.
26/05/10 – Small change – Version 1.0.2 – ADB location is now saved in registry
17/08/10 – Version 1.0.3 – Added flash radio (via fastboot) – It will reboot into the bootloader, flash the radio & then reboot the phone
30/08/10 – Version 1.0.4 – Added a donate link
25/11/10 – Version 1.1 – It now has the option to verify the MD5 before flashing a radio
You can find more information in the application thread.
