FixFlash – ROM Flash Verify and Repair Tool

If you find that you are experiencing problems booting your Android device into custom ROMS, it could be that you have some corrupt files after flashing your phone.

XDA forum member SavvyX4 kept experiencing such problems where on occasion, the corrupt file was a critical framework file causing issues during booting.

To fix this, the XDA member has written a shell script, FixFlash – a software fix for a hardware problem.  It runs on your Android device after flashing a new ROM image from recovery.

FixFlash verifies the integrity of the files copied to the phone during the flash process and automatically makes a fresh copy of any corrupt files in order to resolve the problem.

For more information on the script including full instructions, and download link, visit the forum thread.

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...

Which Manufacturer (And Device) Made You Choose Android?

The beautiful thing about Android is that there is so much to choose from. There are a handful of OEMs that design phones completely different from one another, so chances are you'll find something that suits your needs perfectly. Furthermore, Android itself is very open and customizable, giving users full control over their devices. With Google IO right around the corner, we'd like to know: Which manufacturer and device brought you over to Android?
