Yaffey for All Your YAFFS2 Needs
XDA Forum Member necro_ may be new to Android development, but don’t be fooled by this inexperience—he is a professional software engineer with experience in Symbian OS and Windows development. After rooting his first Android phone less than a month ago, he found the whole process, in his words, to be a “pain in the asre.” Surprised with no easy solution for creating or editing YAFFS2 images, he set out to remedy this.
Necro_ started to working with the unyaffs code, and put together a GUI app that listed an images contents. Once he got that working, he kept developing to allow for extracting files and then creating images. The fruits of his labor is Yaffey—a GUI utility for reading, editing, and creating YAFFS2 images in Windows written in Qt 4.8.1. The utility is still very young, but necro_ hopes that others will find it to be a useful utility. He hopes to get feedback from users such as feature requests and bug reports to help him better his utility.

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
