LOL, "Tomato / Tomahto".

But I think you also made my point as well.

The verizon devices are a bit different as you have to unlock/root/busybox/twrp before using it where other devices can do all that from scratch using the toolkit but I have been asked by ALLOT of people to provide it and so I have. There is soo much more that you can do on your device than rooting and flashing roms. If you don't want to use it thats fine

I want you to know I appreciate anybody who developes on Android so, again no offense meant, but everything this tool can do can be done without it so I don't quite understand the need for it except for the sake of simplicity. The problem I've run into with some people who use tools like these is they don't ever learn anything except to plug in their device and press some keys on the keyboard. I can't tell you how many friends and acquaintances have sought my help for a bricked device or other such problems who've used automated tools. Most of them don't know what ADB is (some don't even understand what a recovery is and how to properly use it) and yet their device is unlocked and rooted with a recovery installed. My point is that although simplicity can be nice, it breeds incompetency. Don't you think?

Hey mskip just curious what version of the drivers are included in this toolkit?

I am currently running version 1.5.9.0 and wondering if thats the newest. No matter what version of drivers I've used I'm having serious problems getting my phone to work properly as an MTP device. I get some "missing hardware ID" error. Any ideas or has anyone else had the same problem?

Edit: I unpacked the Toolkit and see that it is a new version of drivers so that's cool. 1.5.16.0 vs 1.5.9.0, nice. Unfortunately I'm still getting wierd problems with the drivers not working. I blame Microsoft lol

I totally agree with your that making things simple can have its downside and im not getting into the whole "we hate toolkits they should be banned" argument though I know thats not your objective.

I make my toolkits for 3 reasons:

1. People like myself who know their way around the manual approach and just want to be able to do things faster. These types of people don't even need to use the toolkit but it just makes life a bit easier

2. People who want to be able to root, busybox, push/pull files, flash files but just arent that technically minded and cant get their head around adb\fastboot commands. I know some people would say "well if you cant figure it out then you shouldnt be doing it" but im not that arrogant and if I can help someone I will.

3. People who get in trouble for any reason and would probably end up throwing their device away or spamming the forum with threads asking for help. I provide very detailed help and instructions for everything the toolkit does which makes it easy to follow even for the most basic user to follow.

Now if people dont want to use my toolkits thats fine but if people dont agree with toolkits then they should also disagree with chainfires cf-root or paul o'brians superroot. I know I have helped allot more people than I ever could by running a 'teaching' thread and and at the end of the day all I care about is helping as many people as possible

The toolkit uses the Samsung usb driver pack 1.5.16.0 which is the latest I believe.

Thank you mskip!

I had already rooted and unlocked the bootloader on my phone before downloading your toolkit. However I had a glitch in my recovery and used your toolkit to re-install the CWM recovery!

Although simplicity allows for others to "float" along, I have realized that you can not hold yourself responsible for the choices people make. I too once preferred one-click methods but I got much more involved once I started getting my hands dirty and have learned a great deal more about my devices...

Regardless, I was pleased to use your toolkit to perform a simple action since I have my phone setup up ideally and don't flash roms much.

Again, Thanks!

Does it matter if the phone is on ICS or JB?
