Atools: Do Everything Needed to Prepare Your Android Rom for Vogue/Kaiser/Polaris
There are many parts in an Android rom port package. You have to make sure that everything is properly set up or you will end up with a non booting rom. With this in mind, XDA member l1q1d has taken on the task to make a one stop application to help you prep everything in your zImage, default, and even your nbh prior to flashing. The best part is that it is written in Python, which makes it unique due to cross platform compatibility (Mac, Linux, or Windows).
If you feel the need to modify the rom to suit your needs, take the app out for a spin and make sure that you report any bugs back to the dev.
This is a preliminary release of atools. With this application you can:
- download and edit latest nbh
- download latest zImage and configure your default.txt
- Install system, install updates, backup data, backup system, clean data, partition sd card (only if there is only fat32 partition on it)
- Change keymapping for vogue/Polaris/kaiser (still on develop)
And much more
THIS IS AN ALPHA RELEASE AND I NEED HELP TO FINISH CODE AND WRITE GUIDES.
You can find more information in the application thread.

This year, cardboard returned...
