Droid Manager: When Doing Only a Few Things is Not Enough

Sometimes an application comes along on XDA that tries to do pretty much everything. XDA Senior Member DeepUnknown has released such a program with his latest release, Droid Manager. Designed as to be a near complete front-end of ADB’s built-in functionality and then some, the program features:

Navigate through phone files.
Copy from / to device.
Search for files on the device.
Change permissions.
Install user & system apps (to install system apps your phone mus be rooted)
Fix APK files title saved locally, view permissions and required SDK version.
Get build.prop file from device, change it and save back to device.
Create zip files, sign and push to device external storage.
Execute Fastboot commands, mostly used commands are built-in (e.g flash partition, erase partition)
Supports transferring files from / to device via wi-fi by using the Android App provided.
Extract custom Rom and edit build.prop, replace system / user apps, edit / add init.d scripts, add / remove kernel.
Change Boot Animation.
Change default Ring Tones.
Export and sign output zip file.
Create backup zip file that contains the system files to be effected by applying a theme or a mod. The zip file can be flashed via CWM.
Just tell the program which theme you want to apply and the files will be backed up from the phone directly.
Support for unpacking and repacking boot.img. (Check last two attachments in this post).
New Icon.
Rearrangements in the UI.
Fresh Look (Hope you like it guys).
Less Annoying Warning Messages.
Added the ability to install a single APK file from file browser under APK Tab.
Added Splashscreen.

Having tested the application extensively over the past few days, I can honestly say that there has been some serious thought put into this amazing piece of software. However, the only downside to the application that I see are the prerequisite’s before being able to use it which include:

Net Framework 4.
Fastboot & ADB drivers installed.
Android 2.1+
Device USB Debugging turned on (Settings -> Developer Options -> USB Debugging).
Forward ports 8000 & 8001 in the router for Wi-Fi Transfer.
For dealing with boot.img: Cygwin

The upside is that the developer has included (or attached) all of the files needed to run the program and is extremely receptive to both comments, questions, and feedback. So why are you still here? Head on over to the original thread and give this bad boy a go.

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. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
