I always do everything the long way, much more control over what's happening... Plus, is it the worst thing in the world if people learn some fastboot and adb commands so that they may actually use them in the future to recover their device or troubleshoot something that there isn't a toolkit for? I'm all in favor of everyone having as much knowledge as they possibly can, and encourage self sufficiency wherever possible. Its almost at a point know where people expect and rely on toolkits and the like way too much.

Fully agree! Wug's toolkit is great for new Android users, I'll gladly say, but after someone's initially rooted and flashed a ROM, it's not hard to pick up the few basic commands. Ultimately I find it faster to right-click to open an admin command prompt, then do the commands I want.

Exactly. I have a major sense of accomplishment when I use commands to do everything I want done.

My knowing fastboot and adb commands saved my first gen kindle fire numerous times. I have a fastboot cable that I made to fix it now, but before I did, knowing those commands is the only reason the thing isn't a paperweight.
