Remove Old Clutter with Batch Cleanup for G2x

Sometimes a device just needs a little a lot of extra cleaning. Be it from applications that leave behind folders and files after an uninstall or add-ons and scripts, Android flashers often need a supreme wipe to clean out the partitions. This option is now available on the LG G2x. XDA Forum Member mansa_noob has release an application called Cleanup Batch that will wipe every conceivable thing off of every partition on your phone.

Okay, so wiping is a bit inaccurate. What the application actually does is re-create all the partitions, destroying all remaining data in the process. Says mansa_noob:

The contents of the zip file can be used to super clean G2X before a new ROM flash. This tool recreates all the partitions in the phone so wipes the pointers to all files (everything). The method it employes has existed from before. The files here will stop short of pushing a ROM, so that you can push your favorite ROM.

This allows for a super fresh, completely clean new ROM install that will take care of any potential lingering traces from previous ROMs. While it’s just nice to have that clean flash feeling, this tool can solve a number of problems, including a Bluetooth problem that mansa_noob was having prior to using the tool. Using it to wipe all modified partitions and recreating them, any incompatible modifications that aren’t wiped conventionally are solved.

Head over to the original thread for additional information, download links, instructions, and more.

But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera. Even traditionally, the primary camera on Samsung's flagship lineup has been one of its stronger points as compared to other...

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

Android’s Consistency and The User Experience

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
