AndroPlatina Utilities Aims to be Toolkit for All Android Devices
XDA seems to have been blown up by toolkits in the last couple of months. With toolkits being released for the Nexus 7, US Galaxy S III variants, and a boatload of HTC devices, it seems like every device will have one soon enough. This may not need to happen, though, as AndroPlatina aims bring a single toolkit to all Android devices.
AndroPlatina started out simply enough. Developed by XDA Recognized Contributor varun.chitre15, along with the input of anyone who wants to help, the toolkit feature list is short for right now. They include:
1. Recovery Flasher
2. Any device unrooter
3. Bootanimation changer
This may not seem like a lot, but keep in mind that this tool aims to be compatible with all—or at least most—Android devices. With some time and patience, here’s the feature list that varun.chitre15 is aiming for:
1. Complete Fastboot flasher
2. Any device Unrooter…Done in v1.1.0
3. Complete recovery tools(Almost all things which recovery can do)
4. Kernel flasher
5. Logcat collector
6. Bootanimation changer…Done in v1.1.0
7. OTA .exe(Publish ROM updates in form of exe and flash them via PC by a simple click)
8. Complete kitchen tools(A alternative to dsixdas kitchen)
9. Any device tweaker
10. Complete Theming Engine(An alternative to UOT Kitchen)
11. Font changer
12. APK Installer
13. Suggestions are Welcome!
14. A good UI
15. Cross Platform
When this gets done, it may very well be quite useful for users. As with most ongoing projects, help would be appreciated. This is especially true for the recovery flasher, as some devices may not be compatible until varun.chitre15 can find the recovery partition for that device.

The Google Play Store, weighing in with more than 1.4 million apps at last count, is a vast expanse of quality content and APK duds alike. To put this into context, it would take the average user more than 8 days of continuous scrolling to make it through the whole list at two per second, let alone the added months to click through and check out screenshots, or years to separate the wheat from the chaff via thorough review.
