It is all well and good stating figures, but what does $20 million of crowd funding mean for a company? The Pebble Time just recently ended their Kickstarter with over 4000% of their initial request which was just $500,000. This level of funding is unprecedented for Kickstarter and it passed $1 million in less than an hour bringing with it a level of fame unavailable to many other OEMs. Produced by the Pebble Technology Corporation (PTC), the Pebble Watch has...
CASUAL-Based ClockworkMod Recovery Flasher for HTC One
A few days ago, we talked about XDA Elite Recognized Developer AdamOutler‘s new site Casual-Dev. The site’s aim is to show developers how to leverage the open source CASUAL software as a platform from which to launch their own development works. Now, we have news of one of the first development works based upon Adam’s work, and it comes in the form of a ClockworkMod Recovery flasher for the HTC One.
The recovery flashing tool comes from XDA Forum Member MightyBear007, and it was built using the CASCADE IDE, and packaged into its own complete CASUAL with CASPACkager. The actual recovery flashed is the well regarded ClockworkMod Touch 188.8.131.52 by XDA Recognized Developer Flyhalf205, which is the official CWM release for the device. More information can be found in the recovery’s release thread.
If you’ve been looking for a nifty new way of installing CWM on your HTC One, or simply want to see the open source CASUAL project utilized by another developer, head over to the original post. If instead you’d rather install the recovery manually, head over to the original recovery thread. Again, what makes this cool is not so much the (admittedly great) recovery image. OK, that’s cool as well. Rather, the most exciting part is that Adam’s open source CASUAL platform is now being leveraged by other developers as a delivery method.
