AndroPlatina Utilities Gets Major Update, New GUI and Kernel Flashing

A little over a month ago, we brought you news of a budding tool kit known as AndroPlatina. The first release didn’t have a lot of features. However, it certainly was a great idea that, once matured, had the potential to become a very useful toolkit. Now, with only a few planned features left to implement, AndroPlatina’s latest update makes it just as awesome as was promised.

Developed by XDA Recognized Contributor varun.chitre15, the first release had all of three or four features. With the latest update to version 2.0, not only has AndroPlatina gotten a generous UI face lift, but has now stabilized enough features to be considered a very useful tool kit. Some of the features that have been implemented since the original version include:

Complete Fastboot Flasher
Any Device Unrooter
Complete Recovery Tools (still in progress but mostly working)
Kernel flasher
Boot Animation Changer
APK Installer
Improved GUI

There is still a lot of work to be done, and many more features to be implemented. A couple of particularly useful features that are still yet to be implemented are a full ROM kitchen, the ability to flash a ROM as an executable on a PC, and a complete theming kitchen. For more info, check out the original thread.

While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...

Optimize Battery Life with This Useful App

Battery life is an important aspect of your smartphone, especially if you use it for more than just calls on the go. Since you're on XDA, you probably do and want to get the most out of your battery. Now, you can't magically expand its size but no matter how much its capacity is, you should make sure it's not draining faster than it should be.

The OnePlus 2 & The Year of Smartphone Compromises

We are very close to entering the last third of 2015, and we have now seen many of the biggest flagship lines issue their latest iterations. Phones like the LG G4 and Galaxy S6 were some of the most anticipated devices in smartphone history, and the hype surrounding the M9 and OnePlus 2 had us discussing for weeks.
