Hi,

I created a little toolbox app for the Galaxy S. It requires root and has the following functions:

- Check & backup device product code files (req. root)
- Access hidden dialer code menu's
- Reboot and reboot into recovery (req. root)
- Mount /system as rw (and back to ro) (req. root)
- CSC Selection
- Scan SD card for corrupt image/movie files and remove these to prevent the mediaserver process from going crazy and draining your battery.

Hope you like it. Suggestions for additions and bug reports are welcome.


Cheers,

Xander

Nice app :) Good to see that I still had XEN code and it also backed up the nv_data.bin and the .nv_data.bak file :D

I got it, but recovery and the other one is red, disabled. I have rooted my phone, so should they not be disabled?

Those options will only turn red when the app failed to gain root access. Did you allow the app to gain root though the superuser permissions ?

    Hi there,

    I just posted an updated version of the SGS toolbox app in the android market. The new CSC selection and efs backup option are available in the non donate version as well.

    Added a new feature to scan the SD card for images/videos that are corrupt (with filesize 0). When found these can be automatically deleted. Corrupt image files cause the mediaserver process to go crazy resulting in high battery drain.

    Feature requests are welcome!

    Cheers,
    Xander

    Create manually a folder named "sgstoolbox" on your sd-card, then the error is gone.

    SOLVED: thanks
