New Tool – Fastboot flasher 2.5 simplifies the fastboot process

 

Did you get a new Android device for Christmas?  Roughly 3.7 million activations occurred on December 24-25 so it’s safe to assume a few of you did.  You’ve have used a tool such as SuperOneClick or HTC Super Tool to root and/or unlock your bootloader and allow custom ROMs – in the age of “easy rooting” it goes without saying flashing should be easy as well.

XDA user slayerXcore released a script (Windows only) that automates most of the commands used in fastboot and recovery.  He focused on designing a fast, small, and (most likely) universal script to handle these for you.  It is very easy to use and has worked on all 8 devices I’ve tested.  His “installation instructions” are found below, the bold words are MY emphasis, not his.

Extract it somewhere like your desktop, though anywhere will work.
when i say extract it i mean use extract all so you get my file structure do not move these files or it will break*

Run / double click FastbootFlasher.bat

You will be be greeted by my ReadMe!.txt file please read it as it gives you a disclaimer saying im not liable for anything you do to your device

Close the ReadME!.txt

I hope this tool helps those who aren’t familiar with fastboot or helps those who want a faster way of doing things.

One final note do not give it a file for another device or a non .img file it will flash it anyway no matter what file you drag and drop once you press enter it flashes what ever was dragged onto the script. Also do not drag a radio img when it asks for recovery or in revers, bad things will happen Wile they are fixable by using option 3 at the end and repeating the process I dont want anyone to mess up their deice making such a simple mistake.

Everyone is always talking about their bars. How many bars of WiFi do they have? How many bars of 4G? What does a bar really represent?

In this episode of XDA Xposed Tuesday, XDA TV Producer TK reviews an Xposed Module that gives you the ability to put certain...
