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.

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...

New Cyanogen Partnerships Bring Privacy Concerns

New Privacy concerns have emerged regarding Cyanogen’s latest announcements, primarily the inclusion of email app Boxer and that of a multitude of Microsoft apps, including Bing services, Skype, OneDrive, OneNote, Outlook, and Microsoft Office.

Along side the partnership with Microsoft, Cyanogen also recently announced...
