I guess this toolkit isn't being updated for Oreo. I shouldn't have given up my root on 7.1.2 for 8.0

I'm trying to re-lock the bootloader on my 6P running 7.1.2, but on the select your build screen it only shows 6.0 builds. What can I do here? I'm pretty sure I fully updated everything

Hi, first of all let me introduce myself my name is Craig Roberts I am a coder for Roblox games but I am here primarily to get everything up to date and help the Unified Android Toolkit to grow again. Mark has been unwell for quite some time and is unable to use a keyboard or mouse and a lot of people who promised to answer emails and keep the site up to date for him (and for which he paid them) have let him down so I offered to step in and get everything back in working order again. This is his only source of income right now and I have known him for a long time so I wanted to help.

Email support and missing Toolkit codes: If you have sent an email and not been responded to then I apologise. I will start working through the backlog but missing codes will take priority so if you have purchased a code for a pro/ultimate version of the Toolkit and not had an answer please help me out, do not open a paypal dispute, email me at [email protected] and I will send your code right away (during office hours). You can also go to http://skipsoft.net/donate/getcode.php and enter your paypal email to get your code. There seems to be a problem with paypal processing hotmail addresses which has caused a lot of unresponded payments and I assure you this has not been on purpose and will be sorted out.

Please wish Mark well in his slow recovery, he is upset he cannot maintain the Toolkit but I have promised I will stick by it as it is a great kit he has developed over the years and has helped out many thousands of users. I reiterate this is his only source of income so please support him as best you can if the Toolkit has ever been a help to you (I know its saved my neck on more than 1 occasion which is why im here today). Any support and/or purchase of a code will help ease the worry of him looking after his family.

Feel free to retweet and share this post to get the message out that the Toolkit is not dead and we can make it great again (and help Mark out).

Thank you and stay tuned for more updates, Craig.

Pro/Ultimate User Auto Update Available:
The device module has been updated for all builds up to the latest version. All the firmware and OTA firmware images have been added to the firmware section on the Google devices and the OTA images added for the OnePlus devices. These can be downloaded and flashed directly through the Toolkit for your convenience.

If you find any of this useful PLEASE donate to a device project. You can do it through the Toolkit (after selecting the device at startup) or from the link at https://www.skipsoft.net/?page_id=703 so you get the right code fast and can update to the latest version. You can also go ULTIMATE mode and unlock ALL device modules for the lifetime of the Toolkit. Follow us on twitter at https://twitter.com/skipsoftnet for posts/updates.

Craig, when I open the app it's still on version 1.7.2, Mainbuild V5.2.2 2018/12/20, and the builds after Jan 2018 are not listed.

These are still the options at the bottom, no matter what screens I go through. Am I missing something?

Code:

 37. Android 8.0.0 [OPR5.170623.011, Nov 2017]                    [FROM GOOGLE.COM]
 38. Android 8.0.0 [OPR5.170623.014, Dec 2017]                    [FROM GOOGLE.COM]

You should only lock the bootloader if you are completely stock. With root you have modified partitions and may brick the device totally. Be very, very careful.

I just want to say thank you. My phone started acting weird a couple of days ago, and then REALLY started messing up. I used your tool to fix it. I will buy this next payday. It works really good. Wish I had this a while back. It would have saved me a lot of headaches. Thanks.

    SUPPORTED DEVICES AND LATEST SUPPORTED BUILDS *HERE*

    DOWNLOAD THE SKIPSOFT UNIFIED ANDROID TOOLKIT *HERE* (FROM SKIPSOFT.NET)

    NOTE: Key files are signed with a Digital Certificate from skipsoft.net but some ‘may’ get picked up as potentially harmful by Antivirus Programs and deleted. They are not harmful, this is a false positive given because of the compiler used. If this happens restore the file and exclude the folder from future scans to use it. This seems to happen mostly on AVG Free and Norton. If you are using the Auto Update feature on pro versions then you will need to disable the AV program or exclude the folder from scans before running the update again.

    Credits: ChainsDD for Superuser, Chainfire for SuperSU and kernel patches, koush and the clockworkmod team for cwm and the universal driver pack, 1wayjonny for the adb/fastboot driver pack, Adam Lange for all his support and help with the insecure kernels, Viperboy for the Knox Disabler app, Stephen Erickson for the BusyBox installer app, BurrowsApps for the Root Checker app, NextApp for the SD Fix app, fOmey for TWRP for the Galaxy Gear.

    --------------------------------------------------------------

    WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PUBLIC (FREE) AND PROFESSIONAL (DONATE) VERSIONS?
    THE PUBLIC VERSION OF THE TOOLKIT INCLUDES EVERYTHING YOU COULD NEED TO MANIPULATE AND ROOT YOUR DEVICE.

    ACTIVATING THE PROFESSIONAL VERSION ADDS THE MOST USEFUL FUNCTION IN THE TOOLKIT, THE ABILITY TO CHECK FOR ‘AUTO UPDATES’ DIRECTLY VIA THE TOOLKIT AND HAVE THEM PUSHED TO YOUR PC RIGHT AWAY AS SOON AS THEY ARE UPLOADED WITHOUT NEEDING TO DOWNLOAD THE WHOLE TOOLKIT EVERY TIME. YOU WILL ALWAYS HAVE THE LATEST VERSION AS SOON AS IT IS MADE AVAILABLE. THIS MEANS SMALLER UPDATES CAN BE SENT OUT MORE FREQUENTLY, SUCH AS ADDING A SINGLE FUNCTION, FIXING A BUG OR ADDING COMPATIBILITY FOR A SINGLE CARRIER. THE SMALLER UPDATES WILL BE COMPILED AND RELEASED TO THE XDA COMMUNITY AS A FULL (PUBLIC) DOWNLOAD VERSION SO PROFESSIONAL VERSIONS ARE ALWAYS UPDATED SOONER.
    THE PRO VERSION ALSO ADDS THE ABILITY TO CHECK FOR THE LATEST VERSION OF SUPERUSER AND RECOVERY FILES AND DOWNLOAD THEM DIRECTLY TO THE TOOLKIT.
    THE ‘QUICK PICKS’ SECTION[/B] ALLOWS YOU TO PROGRAM UPTO 10 SLOTS WITH TASKS THAT YOU MAY PERFORM ON A REGULAR BASIS OR JUST WANT TO KEEP A SET OF TASKS IN 1 PLACE. THEN JUST SELECT THE SLOT AND IT WILL REMEMBER ALL YOUR SETTINGS FOR THAT TASK AND RUN IT.
    PRO USERS CAN ALSO SELECT THE “ANY BUILD” OPTION IN THE BUILD SELECTION SCREEN TO ROOT ANY BUILD AS LONG AS THE VERSION IS SUPPORTED (USEFUL IF YOUR BUILD IS NOT LISTED).

    MORE IMPORTANTLY DONATING SHOWS YOUR APPRECIATION AND ALLOWS THE TOOLKIT TO CONTINUE TO EVOLVE AND GROW.

    AUTO REPLY LINKS FOR PAYPAL TO GET A CODE INSTANTLY CAN BE FOUND AT http://goo.gl/nyGqv

    --------------------------------------------------------------

    PLEASE READ THE *HELP* PAGE AT http://www.skipsoft.net/?page_id=1269 OR USE THE INFORMATION SECTION WITHIN THE TOOLKIT IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS. I HAVE TAKEN A LOT OF TIME TO WRITE IT AND SOMETHING ON THERE SHOULD ANSWER 99% OF PROBLEMS.

    --------------------------------------------------------------

    1. INSTALLING ADB/FASTBOOT DRIVERS

    The first thing you need to do is to install the adb/fastboot drivers. These are needed so that you can unlock your bootloader, root your device and perform other adb/fastboot functions.

    THE DRIVERS CAN BE INSTALLED DIRECTLY VIA THE TOOLKIT. OPTION 1 IN THE MAIN MENU.

    If drivers are not installed or there is an exclamation mark next to the device:
    Plug the device in to a usb cable directly connected to your motherboard.
    In the Device Manager a new item, usually called Android 1.0 should pop up in the list.
    Right click on the device item then left click on Update Driver Software. Select 'browse my computer' and then 'Let me pick from a list'.
    If no adb interface driver appears in the list then untick 'Show compatible hardware' and find the Android or Samsung adb interface driver.
    If you cannot find either of these click Have Disk, browse to the Toolkit install folder, drivers folder, click on android_winusb.inf and click Open.
    Click OK and select Google ADB Interface.

    Make sure you have USB debugging enabled in settings, developer options. In Android 4.2.2 or later you have to enable the developer options screen by going to settings, About on your device and click on Build number at the bottom 7 times until it says You are now a developer. If you have already enabled usb debugging then unplug/replug the usb cable.

    On Android 4.2.2 or later when you replug the usb cable after enabling usb debugging for the first time you will get a popup asking you to authenticate your pc. Tick 'Always allow' then click 'ok'.

    --------------------------------------------------------------

    2. USING SKIPSOFT UNIFIED ANDROID TOOLKIT

    When starting the Toolkit you will first be asked which device you want to work with. Working folders will be created and the device files downloaded. You will then be taken to the Model/Build selection screen where you can do a number of things (other than select your model/build): Type '00' to enter your activation code and enable pro features, 'i' will take you to the Information and Help Section, 'a' will give you information on how to add support for a new build.

    Supported builds are listed in the Model/Build selection screen and typing the associated number (i.e. 11) will download needed boot and recovery files (stock and custom recovery) then check for and download the latest superuser files available and custom recovery (pro versions only), verify all the files and start the Main Menu. You can now use all the functions and tools the Android Toolkit offers. Pro users can select the "any build" option to root any build (useful if your build is not listed).


    --------------------------------------------------------------

    USEFUL INFORMATION
    How to get into your FastBoot Mode
    1. Turn your phone off
    2. Unplug your usb cable if you have one plugged in
    3. Keep holding the 'Volume Down', 'Volume Up' and 'Power' buttons to boot the phone into FastBoot Mode

    How to get into Recovery
    1. First boot into FastBoot Mode as described above
    2. Scroll down with the 'Volume Down' button until it says 'Recovery mode' at the top and press the 'Power' button to enter Recovery

    Show the Menu in the Stock Recovery Screen
    1. Hold the Power button and keep holding as you press the Volume Up button quickly. The blue recovery menu screen should pop up.

    +Updated everything in Toolkit to work with new firmware zip files from google (checksums, unpacking)
    +Added much improved Drivers section in Startup [DR] and Toolkit Main Menu
    +Improved Root file checker/downloader at device module startup

    PRO USERS can just start the Toolkit as normal. After you have selected your device you will be notified there is an update available and can auto update. SIMPLE.

    Non Pro users have a few extra steps.
    1. Exit the Toolkit if it is open.

    Please let me know if everything is working as I have done a lot of work on this version. If the Toolkit tries to detect your device and gives the message 'error: no devices/emulators found' then the installed drivers aren't workingin that mode. Follow the steps in the Drivers Section to uninstall the driver in the mode you are in and replace it with the Google adb driver. It should work then.

    If you want to donate to a device project please do it through the Toolkit (after selecting the device at startup) or from the link at http://www.skipsoft.net/?page_id=703 so you get the right code fast and can update to the latest version. You can also go ULTIMATE mode now and unlock ALL device modules for the lifetime of the Toolkit. Follow me on twitter at https://twitter.com/mskipxda for posts/updates.

    Enjoy, Mark.

    Sorry I haven't been around for a few weeks I have been away.

    I have added SuperSU systemless root by chainfire to the Toolkit as it works very well and I am starting to push updates for Android 6.0.1 support. I finished the Nexus 5 update last night and will definitely be doing the Nexus 6P and 5X today. I haven't had a chance to read the posts since my last one but will read them all when I get back from dropping the kids at school, respond to any outstanding ones and start working on the 6.0.1 update. Just wanted to let you guys know I haven't forgot you since you have all been soo great :)

    Mark.

    I appologise that I have taken soo long with the March updates. Family emergencies and a car crash to deal with took my time away from other things. March updates are now being rolled out to all Nexus devices and April updates will be completed within 2 days of the images being released by google (usually within the first week of the month). I understand peoples frustrations after paying for pro versions but I assure those people that it's worth it. I have also spent more time testing than normal because I wanted to make sure twrp 3 was fully compatible and would not mess things up. That's all.

    Just caught the April Updates and downloading now. I will push an update for the Nexus 6P tomorrow FIRST as you lot have been soo great. Will put out public updates for all current builds as soon as the Samsung Galaxy 7 and 7edge have been added. I promised that to a few people before the April updates came out.

    I have also just updated the md5 check file with the new april update images which every toolkit (pro or public) will update at start up. This means if you don't want to wait for the update you can download the image from googles servers and flash via the toolkit.

    Mark.
