OnePlus has been teasing a new product for a while now, hailing it as a game-changer which isn't a tablet or a smartwatch. While speculations were rife about what this game-changing device could be, the company did confirm that the product was indeed a drone in their recent AMA. A tweet and vine from OnePlus shed some more light on this product, which was confirmed to be named as DR-1 (dr-one, get it?) and was to reach stores "next month". In a...
Cornea One-Click Tweak Tool Supports All Devices via ‘Toolkit’ Modules
A common method for delivering mods from devs to users the use of scripts, which are a set of instructions for an OS to run. Writing a script for Windows or Linux can simplify the root procedure for a device, quickly apply patches and modifications, and in general, make life easier for the end user. Often packaged as ‘one-click’ solutions, a well developed script can make even the most difficult operations manageable.
XDA Forum Member epic118 has created a program that allows the use of these one-click modifications to any device. This is accomplished through ‘toolkits’ that power users and developers alike can create and use. The toolkits currently available include the Samsung Galaxy Ace S5830, Motorola Xoom, and a universal toolkit with proprietary functions for all devices.
The number of modifications and tweaks available in these initial toolkits is impressive. Some of the features already available include enabling root access and bootloader lock and unlock for the Motorola Xoom, flashing ClockworkMod Recovery for the Samsung Galaxy Ace, and standard ADB functions like pushing/pulling of files, remounting the file system as r/w, and rebooting into fastboot or recovery for all devices.

If you are familiar with Xiaomi, you might have heard that they are not the most compliant when it comes to the General Public License that makes the core of Android open to us. The terms of the GPLv2 state that since the Android kernel is based on the Linux kernel, which is licensed under GPL,v2 Android has to be open-source for everyone to study or modify, and those that modify the Android kernel have to make their sources immediately available for...
