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 

Requirements:
Windows OS
Java installed

Screenshots attached

MD5’s (Yes calculed with Drag’n’MD5)
D72F2AEF02AEE27126C1CE867F3305DA – EN

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!

Arrow Launcher: Good Effort Without Direction

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...
