Perform Multiple Operations on Android Wear with AWToolkit

It’s been a while since the first Android Wear devices hit the shelves. Many potential users are still waiting for the Moto 360, but the LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live are already available to purchase. Since its release, these Android Wear devices have already been rooted, TWRP recovery is available, and there are quite a few applications.

Most of the devices supported here on XDA have a working toolkit–a handy tool that usually allow rooting, installing applications through ADB, unlocking bootloader, and so on. XDA Forum Member tdiddy.2 has made a multi-platform toolkit for Android Wear devices.

The project is at an early development stage, but can already reboot the device to bootloader, recovery, and system. Users are able to take a screenshot through the ADB. And last but not least, users can also install a single or multiple applications via ADB. Hopefully, the list of supported features will soon grow, and Android Wear users will be able to perform advanced operations.

The main advantage of this tool is its multi-platform compatibility. The tool is written in Java, so you are able to run it on every OS with Java Runtime Environment installed.

If you are a happy owner of any Android Wear device such as the G Watch or Gear Live, head over to the AWToolkit thread to put your hands on the toolkit for your  tiny device.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
