Flash Zip Files from Your PC with Desktop Flasher

It’s that time again. Right after you’ve finished the last line of the mod, moved the right .pngs into their respective drawable folders, recompiled everything, and finished the last piece of that chocolate that’s been keeping you going for the past couple of hours. Now, it’s time to test it all. You look at your options. You can either copy each flashable zip file over to your device to then tediously flash each of them through a custom recovery, you can rack your brain to remember the commands needed to flash files through ADB, or you can simply use Desktop Flasher.

A very useful tool developed by XDA Senior Member filmaker, Desktop Flasher will allow you to flash zip files onto your device from your Windows PC without the hassle. It does this by allowing you to merely drag and drop the zip file into the program, which will then prompt either TWRP or CWM to open on your device, beginning the flashing process. This has to be done over USB and device-specific ADB drivers must be installed for things to work. Additional options include wiping data, cache, and dalvik cache which can be toggled with simple checkboxes within the program.

Filmaker has been actively working on issues encountered, and we may see support for a wireless connection in future updates. If you want to check this out, be sure to head over to the original thread for more information and download.

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

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...
