BBQTools Team Releases Their Own Unofficial CM Updater App
The last time we brought you news about TeamBBQ it was to introduce BBQLog, an app that pulled change logs for CM ROMs. To continue on their set of tools for CM users, TeamBBQ has released a follow up application called BBQTools.
XDA Senior Member peterperfect posted about the BBQTools application on behalf of TeamBBQ. The app is similar to the CyanogenMod Updater in functionality, as it allows you to check for and download new updates of CM for your device. Some of the other features include:
Verify if you are up-to-date with your CyanogenMod release
Download the latest rom directly
pause/resume download (a first on this kind of program)
See if GApps are up-to-date and download updated ones
See changelog from Github AND gerrit (another first)
See general/kernel/radio changelog and upload them directly on the web
Have a tutorial section and a FAQ
Our team of expert answer question you ask
Access cyanogenmod statistics
Flash .zip package directly from the application
Wipe cache/dalvik from the app
Fix permissions in background
reboot into recovery
If you’re looking for a good application to help you with change logs, downloading updates, and other things of that nature, BBQTools is worth a look. The team is also working on a feature that will allow you to compile your own CM nightlies from within the application or the TeamBBQ website. That’ll be pretty awesome.

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
