Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough.

MultiBasebanFlasher And MultiRecoveryFlasher Available For Dell Streak
Flashing RUU tools for our devices have been a popular object of development since the early days of Windows Mobile. Since then, many carriers and manufacturers have bundled these as update packages to send to their customers every time they want to send a new set of updates to users, or at least the ones that prefer not to use OTA’s. Among RUU’s, there are custom ones that can be used for several other purposes. In the case of the latest release by XDA member UKSheep, his Multi flasher can be used to flash not only roms, but also basebands as well as recovery images onto the infamous Dell device. According to the dev, the app can be used to flash the most widely used recoveries out there, so if you are someone who plays a lot with flashing everything on your device, this is the right tool for you.
The two new additions of the app are still under development, so please use them carefully. Other than that, feedback is welcomed by the dev.
I would like to invite you to try, this is my first tool, and I will appreciate suggestions.
Reminding that you should use this tool at your own risk and I am not responsible for bricking your phone or any other issue.
The reason of the tool: to flash most used recoverys!
You can find more information in the application thread.

Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.
Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
