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.

When a Friend or Family Member Asks for a Phone Recommendation, What Do You Tell Them?

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
