Android World Multitool Helps You with Common Android Tasks
Performing some of the basic tasks on Android device is easy but also time consuming. For example, if you want to install an application through adb, you need to type adb install and a full name of the APK. Of course, you need to have a working ADB to even think of adding something.
There are some tools that make things easier and faster. One such tool is Android World Multitool, created by XDA Forum Member youssef badr. This Windows-only tool can perform the most common operations like installing an application, flashing a boot animation, and rebooting your device. It even supports unrooting and backup/restore.
As an added bonus, some Samsung-only actions are present as well. For example, it’s possible to enter the download mode or reboot straight to the recovery. It’s an initial release, so many things are yet to be added, but this tool can be considered as a good solution for people with less experience in Android or with limited time to do something.
Head over to the development thread to grab the newest version of this tool and give it a try.
