Very good points, both of you. I could not agree more.

So, that said, I think the best people to use toolkits are people like me; when you get old, you get lazy, lol. You read and read and read and learn all the ADB and fastboot commands, but when it comes to crunch time, I can use a toolkit and fall back on the real knowledge if any thing goes awry.
