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.

PhotoMath: A Math Beginner’s Dream App

To me, applications like this one are really important for school students. I bought my first significant Android the same year I began my Physics degree at my university, and immediately I realised how tremendously helpful it was. From accurate graphing applications to TI emulators (don't judge me, the real thing costs crazy amounts here!), passing through giants like Wolfram and MATLAB Mobile, there were a lot of tools for one to excel with. In fact, I'd say that without Android I wouldn't have chosen...

Which App for iPhone Do You Wish Was on Android?

Only a few years ago, it was normal for a major app release to be available for iOS but come months later to Android. That seems to no longer be the case, as Android has advanced tremendously with Google putting a huge effort into its Play Store and ecosystem. However, while the majority of major app releases are now made available for both platforms at the same time, there are a few iOS exclusives that some of us wish were on our favorite mobile OS (Hyperlapse comes to mind). Let us know which apps for the iPhone you wish were on Android.
