A common method for delivering mods from devs to users the use of scripts, which are a set of instructions for an OS to run. Writing a script for Windows or Linux can simplify the root procedure for a device, quickly apply patches and modifications, and in general, make life easier for the end user. Often packaged as ‘one-click’ solutions, a well developed script can make even the most difficult operations manageable.
XDA Forum Member epic118 has created a program that allows the use of these one-click modifications to any device. This is accomplished through ‘toolkits’ that power users and developers alike can create and use. The toolkits currently available include the Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830, Motorola Xoom, and a universal toolkit with proprietary functions for all devices.
The number of modifications and tweaks available in these initial toolkits is impressive. Some of the features already available include enabling root access and bootloader lock and unlock for the Motorola Xoom, flashing ClockworkMod Recovery for the Samsung Galaxy Ace, and standard ADB functions like pushing/pulling of files, remounting the file system as r/w, and rebooting into fastboot or recovery for all devices.
