Control Your Tablet Using Text Commands with ADB Rapid Tool

While most users with broken screens only manage to crack the glass, while retaining actual touch capabilities, other times the touch matrix itself breaks rather than the actual strengthened glass. So what happens when the touch part breaks? It’s about as good as a hard brick, as you can’t do much if your screen and capacitive buttons don’t work properly. While the only way to fix it is to replace (or reconnect) the broken parts, there is a way to still get around it until then.

ADB Rabid Tool by XDA Forum Member unrealmanu brings a solution. The app is available in both Italian and English, and it allows users to enter commands and to control things on screen. And as its name implies, it does so through ADB. The current list of commands include:

required usb debug active

functions:
restart
unlock screen
esc key
keys
home button
menu button
volume keys

So if there’s something you absolutely need to do on your device and the touchscreen isn’t working anymore, this is likely your best bet to get there and do it until you fix the hardware issues. Additionally, the developer is is willing to extend the tool’s functionality if users submit other command scripts.

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion.
