Galaxy Nexus Toolkit Updated To V4.0, Now Installs Drivers Automatically

If you own a Galaxy Nexus, you should know the Galaxy Nexus Toolkit. Developed by senior moderator mskip, it’s the one-stop-shop to get your phone prepared for all the custom ROM goodness that awaits in the forums, as it automatically unlocks the bootloader, roots any Ice Cream Sandwich build, and installs ClockWord Mod Recovery with just one click.

The only small issue – if you can say so – in previous versions was that you had to install the drivers manually, which wasn’t exactly hard but still left room for improvement. But in the newly released version 4.0, that has been solved, with a new option that will automatically install all required drivers. Also with version 4.0, you can now backup and restore apps and app data, and as a bonus for donators, there is a new “tips, tricks and tweaks” section available.

So, one less excuse to finally try out some custom ROMs on your Galaxy Nexus, just visit the forum thread and follow the instructions there to get ready!

Xiaomi Finally Releases Kernel Sources

If you are familiar with Xiaomi, you might have heard that they are not the most compliant when it comes to the General Public License that makes the core of Android open to us. The terms of the GPLv2 state that since the Android kernel is based on the Linux kernel, which is licensed under GPL,v2 Android has to be open-source for everyone to study or modify, and those that modify the Android kernel have to make their sources immediately available for...
