AROMA-Based Toolkit for the Samsung Infuse 4G

With numerous tool kits available for a plethora of HTC devices, some Samsung users may feel a little left out. Toolkits are often an integral part of a new user’s experience because they provide easy access to otherwise complex development work.

Samsung Infuse 4G users now have such a toolkit thanks to XDA Recognized Contributor Zen Arcade. The toolkit is unique as it doesn’t run on the PC or while the phone is physically booted, but rather in recovery using the popular AROMA installer. It can flash ROMs and kernels, wipe your device in preparation for a flash, perform backups, and much more. As Zen Arcade explains:

My goal with this project was to see what could be done with the Aroma Installer without relying on the traditional ROM installer capability provided by recovery mode. The result is this “Swiss Army Knife” of capabilities called the Infuse Toolkit.

Those wanting to learn more should head over to the original thread.

Taking a look at the changes made to the manifest repository (which is used to specify the repositories to be downloaded when building Android), it appears there are some new repositories making an appearance. Of note here are new prebuilt repositories for Go, and Ninja. Go is a programming language, created by Google, which compiles to produce...

Send Links to Any Nearby Device with CaastMe

There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end? Most apps require you to do either or both, which can be a hassle (or even a security risk) in some cases. Luckily, XDA Forum Member wyemun has developed CaastMe. Inspired by...
