More Advanced Guide to Edify Language in Updater-Script

Yesterday, we featured a quick guide  by XDA Recognized Developer KINGbabasula aimed at helping users make sense of the ubiquitous updater-script. While the guide that we shared talked about  many of the commands available in Edify, it naturally didn’t cover everything. In order to keep things simple, much was left out.

If you already consider yourself to be facile with the information in the previous guide, it may be worth checking out another guide on the Edify language used in the updater-script files, courtesy of XDA Recognized Contributor kurotsugi.

Based on a guide originally published over at FreeYourAndroid, kurotsugi’s Edify guide covers 26 different commands, many with syntax, parameter details, taken action, and what the functions return if applicable. Related functions are  organized near each other, giving the guide’s covered functions more context. And like the previously covered guide, understandable explanations are aplenty.

If you’re relatively new to the platform and want to learn a little more about the Edify language used in modern updater-script files, head over to the guide thread to get started.

[Thanks to XDA Recognized Contributor Deadly for the tip.]

CloudPlayer: DIY HiFi Music Streaming Solution

In our Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services, we mentioned several different services that offer ways to stream catalogs of music directly to your device. While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...

Optimize Battery Life with This Useful App

Battery life is an important aspect of your smartphone, especially if you use it for more than just calls on the go. Since you're on XDA, you probably do and want to get the most out of your battery.
