AndroPy Python Library Allows Your Linux PC to Easily Communicate with Your Phone
When you get a new Android device, you are undoubtedly extremely excited. More than likely, one of your buddies told you about these so-called “ROMs,” root access, and so on. But you need to start somewhere, and this is how your journey on XDA begins.
For most of you, using ADB is simple like making tea. However, some of less experienced folks may struggle with installing a fully working ADB and fastboot, especially on Linux. Android Debug Bridge is a must when you want to get a log of your device or simply to root it sometimes.
Inspired by JDroidLib, XDA Senior Member zantekk wrote a python equivalent to make the communication between your phone / tablet and Linux PC easier. This library is still in early development stage, so not many things work. However, you can install the ADB binary on 64-bit version of Linux as well as reboot your device to bootloader and recovery. It can also execute the shell commands needed to do things such as changing permissions. The only requirements are a (64-bit) Linux machine and Python 3 installed.
If you are new to Android world or simply looking for some tools to make your life easier, head over to the development thread and find some more details about the AndroPy open source project.

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....
This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place! When we get so involved in our...
