Speed Up Android Installs on the Vogue with BSG
Good news for users of Vogue, Kaiser, and Polaris users who are constantly updating their Android roms. XDA member l1q1d has recently come up with a boot script generator. In case you are not familiar with this, in order to install or update a build for the Android port for these devices, you must go through a special loader which runs with HaReT (normally accessed by pressing the “Enter” button on the device). This brings up a set of commands, such as “install system”, “update system”, and “clear data”. This is necessary whether the OS is being installed via SD card or directly in NAND, and it takes a little while to get the system “ready” for the first run. By using this tool, all the aforementioned can be avoided, saving you quite a bit of time in the process.
