Live Happy, Flash Happy With Flash Image GUI for Android

We all love flashing our Android devices constantly, no matter if it is apps, kernels, roms, recoveries, etc. If it is in zip format, we will flash it. There are various apps out there that will allow you to start the flashing process, or at least make you boot into recovery to flash whatever it is that you want to flash. XDA member joeykrim has created an app called Flash Image GUI, which as its name clearly states, it is a graphical user interface to easily choose and flash kernels, roms, and recovery images, all from the comfort of your OS. There are other apps that will allow you to do certain things such as Rom Manager and Kernel Manager. However, this app is an all in one.

It is still in early development, and aside from a few something devices being supported, only the EVO and the EVO Shift can be flashed via this app. Please leave some feedback for the dev if you found this useful.

flash_image (bmlwrite) is an extremely useful utility for flashing custom kernels, boot logos and recoveries. This binary has made it possible to easily flash all these items and is used almost everywhere behind the scenes (i.e. in custom recoveries, packaged into kernel /sbin, etc).

You can find more information in the application thread.

PSA: You Can Optimize Your Note 4’s Recents Menu & RAM

The Note 4 never had the fastest Recents Menu, and despite its 3GB of RAM, its app-holding capabilities only got worse on Lollipop. The infamous RAM bug that plagued the S6 is indeed an annoyance on the Note 4's 5.0.X ROMs. Rumors of an update to fix all of this were confirmed with the first reports of the 5.1.1 update for the Russian Note 4, which seemingly improved the Recents Menu and RAM management. But it'll be a long time...
