Create Your Own Packages with Android Flashable Zip Creator

Lego-Android_485

Imagine that you’re flashing the latest nightly of your favorite ROM. If you are performing a fresh install by wiping all of your data, this also means that you have to flash all of your modified system apps, user apps, modules, and so on. And if you’re doing this on a regular basis, all the wasted time really starts to add up. So what do you do? Do you manually install these apps again, or do you add them to your favorite ROM? One of the better solutions is to use Aroma Installer by XDA Recognized Developer amarullz. However, you normally need some experience to configure it properly.

A few days ago, we talked about a Windows-only tool to create flashable ZIP files. Now, it’s time to present yet a. . . READ ON »

Unofficial CyanogenMod 10 on the Samsung Galaxy R

CyanogenMod-10-CM10-Jelly-Bean

The Samsung Galaxy R, a lesser spec’d variant of the Samsung Galaxy S II, was plagued with hardware problems not long after it’s release, and production was soon halted. Due to this, it’s certainly not one of the busier device forums on XDA. That said, we can report that the Galaxy R has now received an unofficial port of ever popular CyanogenMod 10.

XDA Senior Member Adam77Root (with the help of XDA Senior Member karthik050782)  has worked his magic and has managed to get a semi-stable release together for Galaxy R users. Though currently labelled “Alpha 2,” the list of working features is enough to get most device owners salivating:

  • Data connectio

ClockworkMod Recovery 6.0.0.0 Alpha For Galaxy R and Galaxy Nexus

CWM 6

With the release of a new version of Android, it’s only fitting that fresh new versions of custom recoveries are released as well. Custom recoveries are among the most frequently used post-root modifications, as they serve as the primary flashing interface for nearly everything. With TWRP’ receiving an update to 2.2, it is only fitting that ClockworkMod Recovery also be updated. So far, the alphas can be tested on at least the Samsung Galaxy R i9103 and the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, but expect the list to grow very quickly.

XDA Forum Member Adam77Root is responsible for bringing it to the Galaxy R and XDA Forum Member D3VI0US brought it to the Galaxy Nexus. Even though the devices are pretty differen. . . READ ON »

Create a De-Bloat Script and Auto APK Installer

db1

If your device runs a stock ROM, whether that might be a leaked version of the latest impending update or simply a rooted version of the devices current official firmware, chances are it’s going to include a certain amount of “bloat.” You know, those apps and widgets that OEMs feel are oh-so-important to the overall user experience. The fact is though that most of us disagree, and could quite happily live without most of them. There are many different ways to remove them, but if you find yourself regularly repeating that same process everytime you update your device, this might be of interest to you.
