If you’ve been a Samsung phone user over the last year or so, you’ve likely heard of XDA Senior Moderator and Recognized Developer mskip and his tool kits. We’ve brought you news of his tool kits, as they’re available for all variants of the Samsung Galaxy S III and all variants of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, among others. Now, mskip is at it again with a release for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

As per the norm, there is quite a large features list that includes:

Backup your /data/media (virtual SD Card) to your PC for a Full Safe backup of data
Perform a FULL NANDROID Backup of your system via adb and save in Custom Recovery format on your PC

The only thing this toolkit doesn’t do is prepare your breakfast and do your job. You can use it to add root, recovery, and busybox to any public build, as well as create backups, flash various things, pull logcats, and pretty much anything else you could ever possibly need in a toolkit.
