    Please try not to abuse these links as they are bandwidth restricted. You do not need to download ALL these tools, so please restrict downloads only to what you require.

    The (Almost) Ultimate Toolbox

    For a while now, Hadron, InfernalByte, Rastaman-FB and I have been collaborating on a joint drop box. We have been uploading things we think would be useful to have to hand to help people having troubles.

    Although it is still pretty much a work in progress, I feel I should create an index of the things we have put together so far, from my dropbox.

    I'm not doing this for thanks. As I can't easily supply dropbox links from work, I thought it would be easier for me to index them here.

    That said, next time you see a post from Hadron, InfernalByte or Rastaman-FB, hit the thanks button under their post to show the love ;)

    Yeah do! The whole reason was I could reply "link in sig" instead of fiddling around on the bus, trying to get a link, then paste it in the app whilst adding url tags. Had enough of that.

    Thanks again for your valued input.

    Getting myself the Gmail and Markets, they sound cool and I like the dark themes.
  7. SUroot

    SUroot Well-Known Member Developer

    The market is much nicer than the gmail. I dont use the gmail anymore due to my fiance's emails coming through in black text. Other emails were fine however. Just not the most important.

    Good set of links which i will be using in future.

    Maybe an option to get a mod to sticky some of the important threads on this forum eg download links, SUroot's faq and rooting guides. Would be good to have them handy at the top of the list.
  16. SUroot

    SUroot Well-Known Member Developer

    My FAQ's are included in the main sticky. Not sure if this should be though, really its just a reference to put in my sig, but it may be a bad idea.

    Nice list, I'll check out Notepad++ since I'm not always on Linux and hate the "^M" appearance in files written in Windows.

    madhatter1689 Well-Known Member

    Thanks for this. I will add to my signature as well.

    One thing. I tried the black gmail and don't like it. How do I go back to he original? [Edit]: do I just extract the gmail file from the ROM and install it? Can the original be added to your list in case folk don't like it?
  23. Rastaman-FB

    Rastaman-FB Well-Known Member

    your signature shows it but its not linked

    If you want it back in /system/app you can take it from the Rom and just put it in the flashable zip after removing the black one
