Knives and Forks Android Tools Offers Cross-Platform Toolkit For Everyone

Tools kits that are installed on computers can be a little screwy. While some are better than others, almost all come with some form of set back, be it the computer operating system restriction or the kitchen not being compatible with all phones.

That’s the problem XDA Senior Member DieHappy is trying to fix. Knives and Forks Android Tools For Everyone is a tool kit that is compatible across Windows, OSX and Linux and is slowly becoming compatible with more and more phones with the goal of supporting all of them.

The project is far from complete, but it is an active work in progress. DieHappy says:

This first release is rather limited in features. All you can use it for right now is installing ADB and drivers for your device.

The next step for this project will be rooting, then rom customizing, but I am open to your feedback and suggestions.

So there is far more support coming for this spunky application and some changes being added can be considered pretty exciting for people who like to tinker and develop.

If you’d like to check out this application to give it a try or just keep tabs on its development, you can find installation instructions for all 3 major operating systems, download links, and a complete change log in the original thread.
