birbeck for the usual random java guidance, slushpupie for his previous java guidance, dodgejcr for extreme amounts of testing, and one_love_420 and shift for some great graphics!
testers: JT-, couga6442, happytweak and many others I might have forgot in the furry of the initial three days I built a lot of the app from scratch!
Thanks to SDX
flash_image (bmlwrite) is an extremely useful utility for flashing custom kernels, boot logos and recoveries. This binary has made it possible to easily flash all these items and is used almost everywhere behind the scenes (i.e. in custom recoveries, packaged into kernel /sbin, etc).
This Android App is a GUI interface for the linux binary, flash_image provided by google in AOSP for loading custom kernels and recovery images onto the phone.
This app allows the flashing of kernels and recovery images in normal android mode.
No recovery or adb needed!
LG Optimus One, V, S and T support includes flashing of anykernel type .zip files, boot.img type zip files and recovery.img files!
Current Device Support:
Full Kernel, Logo and Recovery flashing: Samsung Moment, Transform, Intercept and Acclaim - the s3c6410 series of devices
Full Kernel (Anykernel and boot.img) Flashing and Recovery flashing: LG Optimus
, HTC EVO 3D (CDMA & GSM), HTC EVO, HTC EVO Shift & Nexus S/Nexus S 4G
Full Kernel (zImage) Flashing: Samsung Epic
Looking for feedback regarding making the app more user friendly or simplier to use for the HTC EVO. Thanks!
Install process is the same as any other .apk. Download to computer and adb push or mount sdcard on computer and copy over or download directly to the phone. Use any file manager, adb, connectbot/terminal emulator to install.
My preferred method, maybe a bit technical: adb install c:\downloads\FlashImageGUI.apk
Market (99 cents!): Flash Image GUI
Release versions (free from my personal hosting): Flash Image GUI
Any questions, comments, concerns, or issues, please post in this thread or send me an email! Thanks for all the help and support!
Q: Will this app support a marketplace to pick and chose kernels from?
A: No. Use Kernel Manager!
