Multi-Purpose Tool for the Oppo Find 5

Oppo is proving to be a developer-friendly manufacturer of Android devices. Not only was it a Senior Sponsor for the XDA Dev-Con event a couple of weeks ago, but it has also shown much love and acceptance for the open source development community on their flagship Oppo Find 5.

With this spotlight shining upon Oppo, it is with no surprise that it has attracted a great number of users, new and experienced, to the development prospects and potential it has to offer. To help both novice and end-users ease into the flow of things with the Find 5, XDA Recognized Developer benjamin.j.goodwin has developed Simple Tool. A multi-purpose tool for the PC, Simple Tool does some of the more frequently performed ADB and Fastboot actions in a simple and straightforward manner, including:

  • Rebooting the device
  • Rebooting to recovery
  • Rebooting the bootloader
  • Flashing a recovery
  • Flashing a boot image
  • Wiping the cache

A handy and brief FAQ has also been posted answering to some of the more common issues users may encounter. Benjamin.j.goodwin also has plans to update Simple tool with additional actions such as one-click rooting and support for additional devices.

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...
