Toolkit for Nexus 7 Gets New Users Started Painlessly

As the Google Nexus 7 is finally entering the hands of lucky new owners, development activity for the device is becoming increasingly impressive. It had one of the most active and unique pre-release development atmospheres of all time.

With root, recovery, custom ROM, custom kernel, and a plethora of other development present before the tablet even reached the masses, perhaps the only thing it didn’t have a was a good toolkit. Not anymore. XDA Forum Member WugFresh has released the Nexus 7 Toolkit, which takes many features and puts them under one umbrella. Some features include:

Unlock and Root
Lock and Unroot
flashing zips
installing apps
restoring android backup files
flashing/booting img files
backup/restore all your important data
flash zips
set file permissions
push and pull files
install apps

The functionality of the toolkit seems only limited to the imagination of the person wielding it. The development on the Nexus 7 is primed to be of truly epic proportions. It’s only fitting that users have a solid toolkit to help get them started.

To get started, head over to the original thread.

In this article, we'll try to look at the different aspects to provide a clear view of what actually happened, and what can (and hopefully will) improve with regards to developers in general and the Play...

Multi Boot: The Fall of Nandroid?

Ever since custom recoveries and roms became popular, nandroid backups have been the fall back method for all android enthusiasts, irrespective of their confidence levels. They allow easy backup and restore in case things go wrong, which happens invariably when a modification is being tested. With that being said, how relevant are Nandroid Backups to this day?
