When it comes to tool kit releases here on XDA, the hits just keep on coming. We’ve recently brought you news of a number of tool kits for HTC devices, while noting that Samsung devices weren’t getting quite the tool kit love that HTC devices have seen. However Samsung’s newest flagship, the Galaxy S III, now has a toolkit of its own that can do all kinds of things from just one interface.

The toolkit was created by XDA Senior Moderator and Recognized Developer mskip, who’s the creator of the popular Galaxy Nexus Toolkit. The tool kit itself brings a plethora of features, including:

Install drivers automatically
Backup/Restore a single package or all apps, user data and Internal Storage
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

That’s quite a giant list of features, and will surely come in handy for most SGS3 owners. The tool kit interface is simple and easy to use, as it displays info via the command prompt. The ease of use and plethora of features give users an awesome interface, from which they can do pretty much whatever they need to do.
