All In One Galaxy Hack Pack
Our devs spend countless hours and tons of blood, sweat, and tears in the process of gathering information and knowledge so that they can make our devices better. This is no easy task as you have to remember that manufacturers don’t always provide the documentation required to do half of the things that we normally do on our phones and tablets. In many rare occasions, the tech representatives from the manufacturers will have nothing themselves. So, where does one go to get this information? To answer your question and save you a ton of search time, XDA Recognized Developer AdamOutler has put together what he calls the “Galaxy Hack Pack”. The dev, as you may know from some of his work, has spent a tremendous amount of time researching into the Galaxy devices, particularly on unbricking methods such as JTAG and a few others, and has picked up a ton of useful utilities in the process. He has decided to compile all of this information and his findings about what apps are useful for hacking the Galaxy devices into a single thread. Please keep in mind that these tools are not for novice users since they can mess up your device beyond recovery if used incorrectly. Also, the dev states that because of this, he will not be walking people through the “how to use” each tool. Basically, if you cannot understand what each tool does from its description in the thread, you should probably not be messing with them.
If you have any additions that you would like to point out for this wonderful resource, please let the dev know.

I’m not helping you root your phone, nor providing market applications. This package is not intended for new users.

Many of you probably dual-boot your personal computers, be it to run Linux alongside Windows or because you have a Mac and hate OS X. On a computer platform, the process can be a life-saver for a variety of reasons, particularly software compatibility/integration. It’s not rare to see computer programmers with Linux partitions or Mac gamers that use bootcamp for their videogames. On computers, the process has gotten relatively simpler over time, with Microsoft and Apple typically supporting the notion....
Websites have typically been less desirable than native apps, due to being unoptimized for mobile screens, responsiveness issues or simply not being able to provide all the features you might desire.
