Android AIO Flasher Makes ADB and Fastboot Easier
Two command line tools that practically all rooted Android users have to use at some point are ADB (Android Debug Bridge) and Fastboot. These are tools found in the Android SDK, and allow users to push or pull all kinds of information, files, and other content to and from Android devices. Common uses for these tools include flashing a custom recovery or rooting a device. Unfortunately, not everyone is as good with ADB or Fastboot as they’d like to be, and one of the most common errors is entering commands incorrectly or simply forgetting them. In the words of a certain unworthy opponent, there’s now an app for that.
Enter Android AIO Flasher. It’s a Windows-based program that allows users to do various things with ADB and Fastboot from a familiar and easy to understand user interface. Developed by XDA Senior Member fonehacker, its purpose is to help users use ADB and Fastboot with ease.
There are quite a number of features to the Android AIO Flasher. Some of them include:
It can Flash Boot,Recovery,System,Userdata and even Splash Images.
It can Flash Boot images,Recovery Image and Splash Image on a Live Running Android Device without rebooting phone
it can also change boot animation of Android
Integrated ADB shell: Just with a single click of a button,the Output console becomes ADB shell
Remount System to r/w with a single click
Universal Device Unrooter: removes superuser and SU binary
There are also some features that have not yet been tested or are still in beta, including the ability to restore Nandroid backups and to install APK files. Additionally, there are a few features yet to be implemented, including a kernel flasher function and a build.prop editor. Once completed, it will definitely fill a huge niche with a lot of features that most users will find handy.
