Automatically Execute Bash, SH, and Python Scripts on Boot with BSE
Thanks to the power and freedom of the Android platform afforded by its Linux underpinnings, we are free to execute various BASH, sh, or Python scripts on our mobile devices. Such scripts can accomplish a wide variety of tasks such as setting permissions on boot or keeping track of device power cycles. And given their functionality, many of these scripts are useful to perform upon boot.
Now thanks to XDA Senior Member r3pwn‘s tool BSE, we have an easy way to easily execute various script types on every boot. To use BSE, simply place the scripts you wish to execute in your /system/etc/startup folder. BSE takes care of chmod for you, so you don’t have to worry. Currently, BSE supports BASH, sh, and Python (assuming you have it installed). And as you would expect, you need to have init.d support in order to use this.
If you execute many scripts at boot and don’t want to bother setting permissions manually, BSE can be of use to you. You can get started by visiting the tool thread.

Amidst all the hype of the OnePlus 2 and the rain of Moto 2015 news, Samsung tried stealing the limelight back to itself by announcing their next "Galaxy Unpacked" event, which will be held on August 13th 2015. Samsung took to Twitter to reveal a very cryptic gif associated with the event, which probably has some clue on the device(s) to be launched. The hashtag "#TheNextGalaxy" does indeed point that the event will be the launchpad for a Galaxy device,...
Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
