Drive [Utility] Desktop Rom Flasher!! (Drag Drop & Flash!)

Hello everyone, so I developed a small application called Desktop Flasher. All you need to do is drag the zip you want to flash and it'll automatically push it to your phone, write the appropriate script, and reboot you into recovery, and perform the flashing procedure. I hope to add new features (wireless support) as time goes on. Try it out and tell me what you think




Features
  • Drag Drop and Flash
  • Wipe Cache/Dalvik and Data


Changelog:

1.0
  • Initial Release

1.1
  • Minor Bug Fixes
  • Incorporated Silent Updater

1.2
  • Fixed Permission Issue

1.3
  • Created First Time Run Program to avoid any setup issues
  • Auto renames zips with spaces in their title

1.4
  • Small adjustment


Confirmed working on TWRP and CWM, I have not tested any other recovery, but it still should work the same. Please report back your findings.

Download and Extract the attached zip, and run Desktop Flasher.exe to launch,

When Launching the App for the very first time, I highly recommend that you update it to avoid any potential problems.
To Update the App just open it, and close it (via the usual x or exit button).

FAQ
  • I get a failed to push script/or during the first run program it can't detect my device in recovery mode!
    1. You probably don't have the drivers installed for adb in recovery mode. It's easy though! Follow this quick guide here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1379875
  • Okay, so the program says "Great your Phone will do the rest" and my phone reboots into recovery, but nothing happens...wth??
    1. Most likely the issue is that you're using a recovery that doesn't support openrecoveryscripting. (The official version of CWM and TWRP do)

Yes, just make sure USB debugging is on, and your drivers are already installed.

Custom Rom and cwm

I made a few themes and had always to copy over the zips and flash them via phone
so I would be really happy if it will work on my device

Cool. Yeah this should work on any device, I and any recovery with Openscript available (TWRP and CWM). I haven't tested cwm but I can confirm that it works on TWRP.

Hmmm...alright. Your phone is connected and USB debugging is enabled?
