Easy ADB Tool Makes Using ADB Simple on Windows

ADB is the most basic and in many circumstances, one of the most powerful Android debugging tools available. With ADB, one can easily install an app, flash your favorite ROM, or grab a logcat to help developers. ADB has one major disadvantage to newcomers, though, and that’s command line.

Command line is great for scripting, and practically every advanced user becomes or already is quite comfortable, but not everyone can remember various lengthy commands. Luckily, XDA Senior Member Mohamed Hashem created a tool for newcomers and people who like simplicity.

With Mohamed Hashem’s tool, you can pull a logcat, install or uninstall applications, reboot your device to a selected mode, and more. It can also flash a recovery, kernel, or ROM using fastboot. The fact that it’s written in Java makes it multi-platform, and as such, it can be used on Windows, Linux, and OS X. Mahmed Hashem’s tool is a great way to show the true potential of ADB to new users who don’t know much about ADB, fastboot, and command line in general.

If you are new to Android or simply want to have things automated, make your way to the original thread to give this tool a try.

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...

New Cyanogen Partnerships Bring Privacy Concerns

New Privacy concerns have emerged regarding Cyanogen’s latest announcements, primarily the inclusion of email app Boxer and that of a multitude of Microsoft apps, including Bing services, Skype, OneDrive, OneNote, Outlook, and Microsoft Office. The concerns arise when you look at both announcements together. At face value they may appear to be the beginning of Cyanogen’s plan to “take Android away from Google,” however there is certainly something more nefarious occurring. Along side the partnership with Microsoft, Cyanogen also recently announced...
