Simplify Rom Cooking with PreKitchen Tool

Are you a veteran rom chef? Or maybe you are beginning to explore the possibility of making your own roms. Whatever the case may be, we all know that cooking can be both problematic and time consuming, especially at the time of making sure that our kitchens are structured properly. With this idea in mind, xda moderator and developer TehPenguin has released a tool that is bound to make chef’s lives much easier.

The tool’s core function is to merge files and modules from dumped roms with pre-existing kitchens by comparing, merging, and cleaning up all the files needed to make a functional rom for any HTC device. This is a universal application, which means that it can work with many kitchens including (but not limited to) EVK, OSKitchen, and many more.

So, if you are still considering cooking your own roms, this tool will make your life considerably simpler.

New and Improved – Much more functionality than the old one!
I’m trying to make this a general cleaning\sorting\worker app for processing dumped folders. If you’d like a feature added, please let me know.

What is it?
This is a simple program designed to take the hard work out of rearranging, cleaning and merging dumped ROMs with Kitchens.

What can it do?

  • Clean – Removed all files with the same name as their directories (This is very useful when converting files to modules)
  • Sort – Files and Folders can be sorted by:
    • Ervius Kitchen’s folder format
    • osKitchen’s folder format
    • By comparing to a donor folder (should work with any kitchen)
  • Unsort from:
    • Ervius Kitchen’s folder format
    • osKitchen’s folder format
  • Merge missing file and folders from a donor directory (useful when the dump is missing files\folders) (SVN Directories are ignored (‘.svn’ and ‘_svn’))

You can follow the development in the application thread.

Open War for Open Android: Antitrust for Cyanogen?

Android and openness is something we talk about all the time, but the recent developments in the industry point towards inherent flaws with this very premise. Be it from bloggers, political institutions or corporations, Android is seemingly not open enough. The “War on Openness” is ironically becoming an open war, where many players are increasing their stakes and scope to try and land a bigger hold - or at the very least, restrict Google’s - on what is the world’s...

What Do You Do with All of Your Old Photos?

Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us.

Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...
