[TOOLS] [LIN, MAC, WIN] Knives & Forks: Epic 4G Touch Support
WHAT IS IT?
"Knives & Forks" is a cross-platform Android toolkit, written in Python, that is designed to work in Linux, Mac OS X or Windows. I wanted to create something that was unique, and offered a consistant and feature-filled set of tools for Android devs no matter what operating system they use, and for as many Android devices as possible.
WHAT DOES IT DO?
I just started work on this project, so it doesn't do very much yet. Right now we are just focusing on getting drivers and adb installed for as many devices as we can on all three platforms. Once we have adb working for everyone, the real fun can begin as we start to add more device tools that will make use of adb, such as rooting. Eventually ROM customization tools will be added, but we are focusing on device tools and cross-platform compatibility at this time.
HOW DO I INSTALL IT?
This thread in Chef Central
contains download links and installation instructions.
WHO MULTIPLE THREADS?
Well, I'm not just spamming and trying to advertise my other post. I'm trying to keep things somewhat organized with this project by seperating general project discussion from device specific discussion.
I would like to keep EPIC 4G Touch related discussion in the thread you are reading right now, and the other thread for general discussion of my script, feature requests, general bug reports not related to a spcific device, etc.
HOW CAN I HELP?
The script currently only installs drivers and adb, so if you want to test this out I suggest either uninstalling your drivers, removing your udev rules, deleting your adb binaries, or simply fire up a clean install in VirtualBox if you don't want to mess your working system up.
I have tested using my Epic 4G Touch in Linux (CentOS, Debian, Fedors, various Ubuntus), Mac OS X, and Windows XP & 7, and it was working for me. I included some fixes for Arch, but I have not yet tested them out.
Please let me know if my script worked for you or if something broke, and what your operating system is here in the thread you are reading right now.
If somebody else already reported it working in your OS, just hit the thanks button instead of creating duplicate posts. I don't want to clutter things up with 100 "Works in Windows" or "Works Ubuntu" type posts. One success or error report is enough (unless you are reporting about another version of the OS or are reporting a unique error), and then I'll update my origional post in Chef Central to show support for the device and OS.
I posted here because this is phone that I own, and I can post what is or isn't working for me. If anyone has another device where you think I should create a similar post, please send me a PM. I'm not going to get myself banned again for posting in every single Android forum, but if you want to spread the word, please feel free to tell all your Android using friends about my script.
