Super Utility for the HTC Sensation 4G and XE

Tool kits and utility applications do most of the work bridging the gap between the not-so-tech savvy and Android development. While varying in functionality and polish, the tools get the job done with minimal effort, and allow the average user to easily experience all their Android phone has to offer.

With an array of tool kits out there that perform almost countless tasks, the right utilities can result in all sorts of functionality you didn’t know you could even get. HTC Sensation 4G and XE users now have a utility that basically does whatever you need.

Super Utility is a command prompt based tool kit released by XDA Senior Member kgs1992 that makes a sound effort at living up to its name. Given that it relies on command prompt, this is for Windows users only at the moment. The toolkit can do a number of things including:

Reboot your device normally, or to bootloader or recovery.
S-Off for Hboot ≤1.18 devices & Hboot 1.2x
Installing 4EXT Recovery for all S-Off / HTC Dev Unlocked devices (You need to download recovery.img attached below)
Rooting for all devices (No custom recovery required)
Write SuperCID or custom CID for all S-Off devices
Install firmware for all S-Off devices
Flash ZIP from recoveryfor all S-Off devices with custom recovery installed
Flash PG58IMG.zip
Flash boot.img (ie.Kernel & ramdisk) for HTC Dev unlocked/ S Off devices
Flash ENG Hboot for devices that have S Off (The tool asks you to download 1.27 JB Hboot)

For most users, there really isn’t much else you need a tool kit for, and not much else you really need to do to begin with. The tool kit also acts as a good solution for users with broken screens who need to restore to stock prior to requesting service, as well as users with broken volume buttons who can’t use recovery properly.

What’s Next for Samsung and Its Flagships?

If we were to say that the Galaxy S6 was a leap of faith made by Samsung, we wouldn't be too wrong. After all, the device marked a definite change in how Samsung perceived the market and its own place in it, as it stood amongst the signs of decline which started with the critical reception of the Galaxy S5.
