What’s Possible with CASUAL & How to Make Your Own CASUAL – XDA Developer TV
XDA Elite Recognized Developer AdamOutler is known for many things: tearing down devices and identifying the parts, UnBrickableMod, his anti-Apple Google+ posts, and more. But that’s not all AdamOutler has done. He’s also created a very dynamic device hacking tool called CASUAL.
The Cross-platform Android Scripting and Unified Auxiliary Loader is a package handler that you have seen Adam use to root and bootloader install devices before. In today’s video, he shows you what is possible with CASUAL. Most importantly he shows you how to contribute to CASUAL and make your own CASUAL for your device. Check this video out!
