Flashaholic RUU Simplifies Flashing

Is your ORD (obsessive rom flashing disorder) itching? XDA member appelflap has written a small app that should make the whole flashing process a whole lot easier. The app is basically a modified RUU, which includes a few tweaks. For instance, the app runs a task 29 command on the device prior to flashing. If you are not familiar with this, it is a command to format the device. Among some of the other tweaks, the dev removed the check box confirmations that have to be clicked on before proceeding to the next step (ie “make sure your device is connected… etc).

The app is in testing stage, and it is currently being turned into a universal RUU (meaning it would work for any device). Drop by the thread and make sure that you leave some feedback for the dev.

Hi, I made a little util for the HD2 to perform a task 29 before flashing a rom (see here. It’s basically a two step procedure:
1. In the first step a nbh file is flashed with a modified (hex edited) RomUpdateUtil that will perform a task 29 after flashing.
2. In the second step a custom rom is flashed with a mod RomUpdateUtil that will perform a task 32 after the rom is flashed.

Now, because I got requests from people asking me if the tool can be used for other devices then the HD2 I thought it was worthwhile to make this tool “universal”. Because I have no experiences with other devices the only thing I can do is to create such a universal tool and offer it to a community for feedback, suggestions and testing.
Therefore I need some input from
experienced users to guide me in the proces of making this tool work for other device. Users who just like to download stuff and run it to see what it does without researching what it is supposed to do, are strongly adviced not to participate in this test 

Difficulty Level: Hard

You can find more information in the application testing thread or in the original HD2 thread.
