All-in-One Toolkits for the HTC Explorer, Desire V, and Desire S

There are quite a few excellent toolkits for HTC devices that we have covered in recent memory. They can be very useful tools by helping lower the cost of entry for users trying to safely and easily root their devices, install recoveries, and unlock bootloaders. Now, there are new toolkits for the HTC Explorer, HTC Desire V, and the HTC Desire S.

XDA Recognized Developer hasoon2000, who has developed a large number of toolkits for HTC devices, has added the Explorer, Desire V, and Desire S to the list of supported devices. The features are pretty much on par with his other toolkits, but for those who haven’t seen his other releases, they include:

– Get Token ID. Buttons have been replaced and include links.
– Unlock Bootloader (Must place Unlock_code.bin in the folder)
– Install Recoveries
TWRP
User Provided Recovery
-Flash Kernels provided
User Provided Kernel
– Link to this thread
– Link to PM me if you need a phone unlocked
– Link to the One X+ Development thread
– Boot Into Recovery
– Boot into Bootloader
– Relock Bootloader (must be in fastboot)
– APK Batch Installer (Credits to hamsteyr)

Those familiar with his work will note that the features vary only slightly from device to device. This is perfect for new device owners who want to get through the rooting and unlocking process easily, as well as even more intermediate users who need to install APKs en masse or re-lock the bootloader.

For full details, check out the Desire V toolkit thread, HTC Explorer toolkit thread, or the Desire S toolkit thread.

OnePlus 2 Bares All in New Tear Down Gallery

Last year, the launch of the OnePlus One, dubbed 'the flagship killer', visibly shook the foundations of the mobile OEM sphere, with OnePlus delivering high-end flagships specs at a very affordable price. The initial launch phase was met with mixed feelings after a few controversial marketing tactics, but they eventually gave way to strong sales figures.   Earlier this week, OnePlus went on to unveil the successor to the One, and while the device continues to offer top-of-the-line specs at...

Focus – An Attractive But Raw Gallery Replacement

Focus is an attractive new app built by XDA members Liam Spradlin and Francisco Franco, the latter being well-known in the forums for his kernels. Focus aims to completely replace your gallery app with some neat tricks, but at a potentially risky time considering that Google has thrown its weight into the photo-organization arena. This is a first draft of the app of course, but we'll pitch it against its main rivals here, namely the popular QuickPic and the aforementioned Google Photos.     The first...
