Odin and Heimdall were pretty badass gods in the Nordic mythology. But to Samsung device owners, these are important and powerful tools designed to flash stock ROM files, much like Flashtool on Sony phones. In short, they are an essential part of Samsung Android development here at XDA.
Many times in the past, we’ve talked about XDA Senior Recognized Developer AdamOutler‘s CASUAL, otherwise known as Cross-platform Android Scripting Unified Auxiliary Loader. The cross-platform Java-based tool allows you to perform many cool tasks like rooting, flashing stock ROMs. and so on.
The project is now on a different level, as Adam has presented JOdin3, a web browser-based and offline flas. . . READ ON »

Not too long ago, XDA Elite Recognized Developer Adam Outler launched the CASUAL-Dev website. The site’s goal was to help other developers make use of CASUAL, or Cross-platform Android Scripting Unified Auxiliary Loader, as a launching platform for future development work.
At launch, Adam’s site mainly described how to use the CASCADE IDE to create a CASPAC (CASUAL Package Action Container). From there, the site showed users how to turn a CASPAC into a full CASUAL package with CASPACkager. However, the site didn’t do much in the way of helping users get started the basics such as setting up the source that will be built.
In a new guide published on the CASUAL-dev site, Adam now descr. . . READ ON »

Not too long ago, we covered XDA Elite Recognized Developer Adam Outler‘s new website Casual-Dev. The site was built to help other developers leverage his open source offerings in order to use CASUAL as a delivery method for outside development projects.
Since then, we featured a simple recovery flasher for the HTC One that in and of itself wasn’t terribly groundbreaking. However, it handedly demonstrated the viability of using CASUAL as a launching platform for development work. Now, XDA Senior Members enricocid and ivn888 have created a universal image flashing tool that uses the CASUAL platform as its delivery method.
The current implementation isn’t quite the . . . READ ON »

A few days ago, we talked about XDA Elite Recognized Developer AdamOutler‘s new site Casual-Dev. The site’s aim is to show developers how to leverage the open source CASUAL software as a platform from which to launch their own development works. Now, we have news of one of the first development works based upon Adam’s work, and it comes in the form of a ClockworkMod Recovery flasher for the HTC One.
The recovery flashing tool comes from XDA Forum Member MightyBear007, and it was built using the CASCADE IDE, and packaged into its own complete CASUAL with CASPACkager. The actual recovery flashed is the well regarded ClockworkMod Touch 188.8.131.52 by XDA Recognized Developer Flyhalf205. . . READ ON »

Chances are, you’ve heard of XDA Elite Recognized Developer AdamOutler‘s CASUAL tool before. Although the Java-based tool is most frequently used for acquiring root quickly and easily on various devices, there is a whole lot more that you can do with CASUAL. For those who may have forgotten, CASUAL stands for Cross-platform Android Scripting, Unified Auxiliary Loader. And as its name implies, it’s a universal infrastructure for deploying firmware and other hacks to Android from any Windows, Linux, or Mac computer—provided that you have Java Runtime Environment installed.
Not content with simply using CASUAL for his own wiles, Adam made the project open source for other . . . READ ON »

There has been a bit of a back and forth between the development community and Verizon lately, specifically relating to the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. It is perhaps best summed up by XDA Elite Recognized Developer AdamOutler:
“Well, this has been quite the saga thus far…
Us: Suck It Verizon (exploit)
them: Suck it XDA-Developers (OTA patch)
Us: Back Atcha Verizon (exploit)
them: Stop it XDA (OTA Patch)
Us: No You! (exploit)”
The combination of Adam’s CASUAL deployment system and Recognized Developer Ralekdev‘s exploits themselves has been continually providing Verizon Note 2 owners with the ability to free their device through each OTA. The pair have once again managed t. . . READ ON »
