Avoid the Boot Loop Blues With Drag’n’MD5
Are you a developer? Are you a theme creator? Are you an end user? Do you have a pulse? The truth is that it doesn’t matter who or what you are; you’ve probably used an MD5 calculator at some point. In fact, if you flash ROMs often, you probably even one this week to make sure that the latest CyanogenMod nightly wasn’t corrupted in transit. After all, no one likes the boot loop blues.
To that end, XDA Recognized Developer D4rKn3sSyS has created a simple Windows application that makes MD5 generation easy! You’re a simple drag-and-drop away from generating that ubiquitous and tutelary, but otherwise-useless checksum. In the words of the developer:
Hello, this is a basic software, that let you calculate the MD5 about files/folder , with just drag and drop inside the box.
Two version, English, and Spanish
MD5’s (Yes calculed with Drag’n’MD5)

Seems rather meta for the releases themselves to be MD5ed, and for that we salute you, D4rKn3sSyS. For the rest of us, be sure to continue on to the application thread to get started!

If you purchase phones from a carrier, you may be no stranger to the difficulties involved in rooting and installing a custom rom, recovery and kernel on such a carrier locked device. Add to this the extra layer of security that Samsung adds in the form of the Knox counter on its devices, and one can only imagine the roadblocks for enthusiasts who want to play around with their device without losing warranty in the process. It's a slippery slope...
