Toolkits are all the rage these days. They make rooting and modding so easy.. a caveman can do it. There are the toolkit scoffers out there that say toolkits ruin the community by creating a horde of newbs who know exactly nothing about what they are actually doing to their devices. They claim that toolkits actually put these users at risk since they can easily unlock their bootloaders and make system mods that could potentially brick their devices all without knowing what is really going on.

There is now a way to learn a bit more about the processes involved with modding your device. The new "Universal ADB Helper" is a windows only batch file that brings up a simplified command line interface where you choose the number of the command you would like to execute. So instead of typing "fastboot reboot bootloader" to reboot the phone into bootloader mode you might just type 1 instead.

Functions include:
-Reboot into certain modes
-Install apps
-Delete PIN or Pattern CM
-Show Logcat
-Show device
-Backup
-Restore
-Factory Reset
-Flash Recovery
-Change Bootanimation
-Chose Connection
-Own ADB-Command

I am not against toolkits, though I will admit I scoffed at it in the past. I personally prefer to do it the long method with adb myself. But I understand each his own.

I feel that it's better to at least have an understanding of the long/manual process before using these toolkits.

They're a great help, but if something goes wrong at some point and you end up having no choice but to use ADB codes and commands to fix it, you'll be wishing you at least took the time to set it up and practice with a few simple little things first.

Hmmm,

The only adb commands I use on a regular basis are:

adb list devices
adb reboot (because a simple reboot function is not available by default in my device's power off list. Why!!!?)
adb reboot recovery

Other than that give me a toolkit! I ALWAYS donate funds to the cause because they simplify my need to tinker. I have no time to be messing around trying to figure things out. I'm sure I could, but I'd rather spend time doing other things. If I have a toolkit with a button that says "Install TWRP", or "Install CWM" then guess what? I'm pressing it!
