Easily Flash and Backup Your Device with Flashify

Are you looking for a new way to backup and flash things to your device? If so, XDA Senior Member cgollner may have what you’re looking for with his new app Flashify.

Flashify allows you to easily flash and backup your device from within Android. What’s more, it makes use of the Android intent system, allowing you to flash from anything that gives access to the file you wish to flash. For example, if you’re in your file manager of choice and click your desired update.zip, you will be given the option to open and flash it with Flashify.

Flashify also keeps track of what you’ve flashed with a recently flashed list, enabling to easily switch between different tweaks and mods. The backup function is similarly feature rich, allowing you to backup and restore /boot and /recovery to your device’s storage or to Dropbox.

So far, the app has been tested and confirmed working with several devices, including the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, Nexus 7, and the Nexus 10. However just to be safe, it is always a good idea to have a full Nandroid backup in place before proceeding with any system-level modification—especially if you’re using an untested device.

Sony’s Emergence in The Middle: Is The Price Right?

Sony’s Electronics Division is not in its best days, and its smartphone products are seemingly an important cause of this. The Japanese giant’s Xperia line has been on the decline in terms of sales, and these past few months have been particularly damaging to the company due to the Xperia Z4’s market performance. Sony’s Q1 results were also not favorable, as its mobile division lost $184 million and sales slumped 16% year-on-year.   Not too long ago we featured a...

HTC Delivering Ads Straight to Sense Home

HTC's 2015 has been a year marked by a desperate search for revenue. The HTC One M9 launched with its own launcher complete with a Smart Folder in the Sense Home Widget. This automatic pseudo-folder would populate with "suggestions" that were nothing more than thinly-veiled ads.   Just over a month ago, HTC began placing advertisements (that can thankfully be disabled) in Blinkfeed. These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
