Android Custom Rom

Fastboot.js, a new web-based tool invented by an XDA member to flash custom ROM in your Android handsets. This tool has its own charm like supporting non-official ROMs, unlike Google’s flash tool. Also, since it’s web-based and supported in modern browsers, it requires very less commands from the user end.

Web-based custom ROM flashing tool could be the future

Things we thought impossible once upon a time are now happening with just a snap. In the case of Android, this applies to flashing custom ROMs over the existing ones if we don’t like them. It’s all because of the tools such as fastboot.js, which made things simpler.

This new web-based tool can flash your desired ROM into your Android handset so easily, and like never before. Introduced by an XDA member named kdrag0n, this tool is operable through your supported browser and doesn’t need installing of any apps and custom ROM images. Although, some systems may ask for installing the required drivers to make this tool work.

It based on JavaScript and processes the fastboot protocol via the WebUSB API, just like Google’s Android Flash Tool introduced earlier. Although Google’s flash tool is the first web-based and streamlined much of the flashing processes, it supported only the official custom ROMs.
