Quickly Flash Xperia Kernels with Fastboot Speed Runner

We generally try to do things as quickly as possible. If this weren’t the case, we wouldn’t have a love affair with microwaves and instant ramen noodles. Luckily, various utilities also allow us to optimize our connected lives such as apps that help with multitasking and so on. Luckily, there are also various scripts that help us perform various modification tasks more efficiently, and now we have one to more quickly flash kernels and create backups of existing kernels on Sony Xperia devices.

Developed by XDA Senior Member HeadFox, the Windows batch utility is really just an incredibly simple batch script that reboots your device to the bootloader and flashes a new boot.img to the device. The download also includes the essential files for adb and and fastboot access, so you don’t even have to have them installed and added to your path for this to work. While this script is obviously nothing revolutionary, time saving is always a welcome benefit.

If you’ve wanted to make flashing an Xperia kernel an even quicker affair, head over to the original thread to begin.

Arrow Launcher: Good Effort Without Direction

Microsoft’s Android expansion has been well received on the productivity front, but not so much in terms of original applications. While their Office suite managed to bring some of the document-editing excellence to mobile, attempts at entering one’s interface through apps like Picturesque proved to be pointless failures. But even then, some apps like Hyperlapse redeem the computing giant through great quality. Microsoft seems to be approaching Android with brute, misdirected development and plenty of unorganized output, and if they want...
