Cornea's coming back! This thread will have a link to another thread for the new Cornea. Wow, threadception.

Cornea
Cornea is based upon my Motorola XOOM program, XOOT.
It's hard to explain...so I'll try my best.
Check out Cornea's official site at Site is down

THERE ARE TOO MANY ONE-CLICK SOLUTIONS FOR ANDROID.
Cornea has the ability to combine these into one application.

All you need is a toolkit for your Android device. (You can find these in the post below). Copy this into Cornea, and Cornea can suddenly do so much more with your device.


CAN'T FIND A TOOLKIT FOR YOUR DEVICE?
The best thing is, you can develop your own toolkits too. You can find out how to do this in Post #3

In my eyes, this is a revelation for Android hacking.

The possibilities are infinite. Make a toolkit that operates with your bootloader, or one that hacks your recovery. Or make an AllInOne toolkit that has the best of both worlds.

n00b FRIENDLY
It's easy to use for n00bs and hax0rs alike. It eases you through the first worrying steps of hacking, and you've also got a whole forum full of moderators and developers to help you out.

THE KEY TO THE LOCK OF RECOGNITION
If you've made your own toolkit, send it to me and I'll add it to the below post for public download!

For the meantime, there'll be nothing here.

I like the sound of this. Might look into making one for the EVO 3D.

What functions can be written in scripts?

I think something like this (ONE common, extensible 'hacker' platform) is sorely needed. I see tweak threads, but each dev goes his/her own way about it.

One suggestion: Remove the adb files from the toolkit folder, so toolkits are much smaller and one doesn't have 20 copies of adb.exe.
  • Cornea/
    • cornea files
    • adb.exe
    • AdbWinApi.dll
    • AdbWinUsbApi.dll
    • MySampleToolkit/
      • toolkit .bat files [Provide a template to setup ../adb.exe reference.]
      • other files (opt)


Hmm... I don't use ADB, but could the toolkits be written in "sh" style. That way Cornea could also exist as a sh script for rooted BusyBox users?

Just my $0.02.


P.S. I vote option 4: I do/don't know how, but I would rather use other peoples' toolkits.

From inferring and a 30 second review of the code...

A) On the PC, toolkits are "DOS" batch files. For functions (in the program flow sense), you can do whatever you want with all the quirks of batch files.

B) To change something on your phone, you are using ADB. Read the documentation to learn more. (Personally, I've never used ADB.)

I'm glad to hear that people like the idea of Cornea. I'm a n00b too.

Implementing ADB into Cornea would be a good idea. I was contemplating that but it'd be pretty difficult to do that, particularly if people are browsing through folders during runtime and the like. I had found a way to do it, which was to do it via calling the *.bat instead, but when I got up, my inbox already had a few toolkits in there, and I really couldn't be bothered!

One way I could do this is make an installer for Cornea that copies ADB-required files to C:\Windows\system32 and then update Cornea...tell me what you think!

Also you can execute BusyBox SH files...if I'm right, you could adb push it to a working directory, then do adb shell sh, and then when done you could use adb shell rm to remove the file?
