Tool for LG Optimus One Makes Building from Source Easy

Tools, interfaces, dashboards, and tutorials all help users get started building from source. Not only do they give more options to developers who already know their way around compiling, but they also can help bring new users into the source building party. These tools are the gateway drug into the Android hacking addiction, and any tool that helps get the job done is worth talking about.

XDA Senior Member mDroidd has released such a tool called Android Central—no relation with the blog—that gives LG Optimus One developers and users a nice, text based interface to perform any number of build and tweak actions. The tool has a very clean user interface and includes easy to follow options for users to choose from.

Some features include preparing to build a kernel, building a kernel, building from source, installing the Java JDK and Android SDK, and a number of theming tools—all available at the click of a button. While there aren’t a lot of instructions, as most of the tools are self explanatory, there are a number of troubleshooting tips for people who are having trouble. In other words, the best way to find out more about the tool is to actually use it. Additionally, XDA Forum Member KeitIG has been translating the tool to French.

A full list of shout outs, the change log, download links for both English and French versions, more can be found in the original thread. Before flashing anything made in this little kitchen-like app, be sure to perform a backup so you can restore in case something goes wrong!

Google Photos ‘Unlimited’ Storage Reportedly Being Capped

When Google Photos was announced, many of us thought very highly of the idea. It seemed like Google had taken what they learned from G+ Photos and added some extra touches to polish the experience, making it something that more people were likely to actually utilize. Now however, the much-lauded 'Unlimited Storage' element may not be quite what it seemed. Here's what we can gather so far...   Reports have come in from multiple G+ and Reddit users who have attempted to back up a...
