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 184.108.40.206 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.

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
