BroodROM Configurator Allows For Post Flash Customization

One of the most fun things about flashing a custom ROM is finding out about all the add ons that developers sometimes leave out of the change log. A new font, a themed keyboard, having the Facebook widget match the theme (for once). However, flashing mods and tweaks can be a pain in the behind.

Enter BroodROM Configurator. XDA Senior Member broodplank1337 has devised this nifty tool to allow users of the Samsung Galaxy S i9000 to choose their features on a ROM and installing them without needing Terminal Emulator or flashing via recovery.

The Configurator has a plethora of features, including:

Choose GPU Driver
Enable/Disable Media scanning
Choose boot animation (RC 1/2) or choose a custom one
Install extended status bar (scrollable, 14 buttons)
Install extra languages (locale app, arabian)
Choose boot sound (standard, feacore, none) or choose a custom one
Choose a GPS Server (14 Servers available)
Choose a DNS Server (5 Servers available)
Choose a APN List (Default, Cyanogenmod APN List)
Enable, Update or Disable AdBlocker (hosts file)
Wipe selected partition
Calibrate battery, Install battery tweak, Battery hints
Recover from bootloop
Turn phone off, reboot phone, reboot in recovery, reboot in download

You can also do things like pick your scheduler or even your kernel and works on XXKPS, XXKPU & XXKQ1 ROMs, even though it’s designed for specifically for BroodROM. After running the Configurator, you’re ready to go with your new set up.

If this is something you could see yourself using, you can check out the original thread for additional details, full features list and even a nifty instructional video. As usual, make a back up first, just in case something doesn’t flash right.

CloudPlayer: DIY HiFi Music Streaming Solution

In our Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services, we mentioned several different services that offer ways to stream catalogs of music directly to your device. While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...
