ROMTools

Man, I love these little Optimus One phones.  When you put Android on great entry-level hardware and price it accordingly, a couple things happen.  They get pretty damn popular, and developers start to take notice.  Both are very good things.  Optimus developer mmmark111 brings us new goodies -- ROMTools.  ROMTools is a program you run from your computer and it handles a whole slew of hacking needs for your Optimus One phone.  Have a look:

  • Flash ROM
  • Flash Recovery
  • Wipe dalvik-cache
  • Mount /system r/w
  • Push ROM to SD card
  • Push framework-res.apk
  • Push bootanimation.zip
  • Reboot
  • Reboot into Recovery

If you hate trying to remember commands and file locations, you'll love it.  It's really easy to use -- I've even got my wife flashing her own boot animations.  I'll make a hacker out of her yet, especially with tools like this one.  Thanks a lot, mmmark111, for making and sharing it!
