This morning, Koush launched his all new Superuser application to Google Play. Just last week, Koush detailed why there needed to be another Superuser app, and the reasons listed are pretty good. For starters, the app is completely open source, comes with pin protection, is and always will be free, and comes with proper multi-user support for Android 4.2+ users. (more…)
Koushik Dutta, known as the mind behind ROM Manager and other apps such as Carbon Backup and DeskSMS, is at it yet again. Late last night, Koush posted details and a video to his Google+, showing off his newest creation, ClockworkMod Superuser.
The app which will forever be free and open source, is Koush’s definition of how a superuser app should be – secure, open, and work properly (with a pinch of prettiness). It features multiuser support, PIN protection, customizable notifications and a whole lot more. (more…)
According to the man himself, Koush just got done implementing the #1 requested feature for Carbon, SMS backup and restore. Hip hip hooray. As a bonus, he states that it won’t simply just replace all of your current messages either, but nicely places them alongside already existing messages. (more…)
This morning, Koush’s Carbon app is now out of beta and available in Google Play. It seems that testing went very well and everything was ready for the prime time. With Carbon, users root and non-root can backup their apps and app data to several different places for safe keeping, including the cloud. It’s perfect for people like me who are looking for a third party means of transferring data between devices. (more…)
This morning, Koush released an updated version of Carbon, his backup app that has been making the rounds and receiving a lot of great attention. In this update, he has allowed non-rooted users to get into the game, with the help of a desktop application that is easily installed on your computer. With this app, every Android user (rooted and non-rooted) can backup apps and app data easily and safely. (more…)
Koush released a new version of his cloud app syncing app called Carbon, this morning. In the new build, which is still root-only, you can now backup to Dropbox, group apps into batches (and save those same groups for later), “select all” apps, and tell Carbon to backup app data only, rather than the entire .apk.
He says there will be one more beta release that will be the non-root or “rootless” version before going to market. (more…)
Just the other day we were talking about backup solutions and how you should always choose one that allows for cloud storage. Today, long-time developer Koush, released a beta of his new app that does exactly as we were describing, only it takes it a step further. He is tentatively calling this app “Carbon,” which we got a chuckle out of, after the name quickly brought back memories of the overhyped Twitter app by a similar title which never made an official debut. (more…)
Sometimes, you flash a new ROM and come to find out, it doesn’t have Google Apps coupled with it and ROM Manager was also left out. So, what’s a flasher to do? Thankfully, Koush has fixed this from being an issue down the road.
With the new “Restore ROM Manager” feature, ClockworldMod Recovery checks before reboot whether ROM Manager is installed on your device under system/apps. As long as you have that settings box checked, whether you wipe all of your data or not, ROM Manager will be there to greet you upon reboot. Definitely a saving feature for the habitual ROM flasher.
