HRB Logo m8
The HotROM Box - Official Build
Hey everyone! I'm mrnickel and today, for the first time, I'm releasing The HotROM Box, for Moto G 2nd Generation, which consists in a Tool that provides simple but great commands, such as Stock ROM flashing, Direct reboot to bootloader and others...

Main Features
  • Stock ROM Flashing method
  • TWRP Recovery Flashing method
  • Phone Reboot option
  • Reboot to Bootloader option
  • Reboot to Recovery option

Dealing with The HotROM Box
1.1: Install
-Copy all files to the folder where your Stock ROM files are located.

1.2: Usabillity
Windows: .bat interactive menu
Linux: .sh interactive menu using Zenity

1.3: F.A.Q (Frequently Asked Questions)
- Q: ROM flashing doesn't work!
- A: You're probably using mFastboot, an alternative version of fastboot. Install the original version and this issue will be solved (until I release a alternative version)
- Q: TWRP flashing doesn't work!
- A: If you haven't downloaded this file via xda official thread some stuff may be corrupted. TWRP image is uploaded with the script and you must copy those to your ROM folder.
- Q: ETA?
- A: Please, do not ask this kind of question. I'm not a dev, I just like (very much) to program some cool stuff, and if something on the code goes wrong, warn me and i'll fix it and release a new version as soon as I can.
- Q: Will you add more features?
- A: Always, this tool will grow with features as the way I improve my programming skills.

Changelog
  • Initial Release (Stock ROM flashing, TWRP flashing and other minor options)
  • Added alternative mFastboot flashing method

Changelog
  • Updated TWRP
  • Bugfixes
  • Added ADB and Fastboot directly

I'm back with some news!
Hey guys!
I've been away for a couple of months due studies, but I have some cool news
The HotROM Box is being PORTED for Linux, most precisely, Debian based distributions!
Now I'm only fixing some bugs, but at the end of the week, HRB will be available for the Penguin for sure.

Note: HRB for Linux is an OFFICIAL PORT. In other words, I am the only maintainer... But that doesn't mean that I'm not open for help and suggestions, so after I release the first build, there will be a Poll so you guys can tell me how the tool is going.

I'm quite hyped to release it, so, see y'all really soon!

HotROM Box is now available for Linux!
Yes! It's done! Now you can flash your stuff on Linux too :P

I am mirroring all the releases through HRB Github repo. Mediafire and MEGA links will only provide previous versions.

As always: Links in OP, as well as the Vote Poll.

Thanks for all the support, it's been a lot fun to develop and update this tool for you guys

PS: Oh, and take a minute to answer the vote poll. I will be glad to know what you guys thought about this new version
PPS: Windows users: I WILL update it too. Actually, I'm planning on adapting to some other language... Maybe Java? xD

Cya!
