[APP] Raider – A special use case backup tool ;-)

Just finished the work on the initial release of Raider. Like I wrote in the last post this tool is inspired by p2p-adb from Kyle Osborn, so all creds go to him. This app requires root and adb installed on the device. You can find adb for arm7 here. I successfully tested Raider on my Xoom running Honeycomb 3.2 and on my Galaxy Tab running ICS. As target I used several rooted phones which all could be “backed up”.

This is the initial work I’ve done on this topic. The app is not threaded currently so if something goes wrong…

All backup files go to the devices sdcard (internal or external) and the filenames begin with raider-xxx.tar

Enjoy it and leave a comment if you like it (else just go ahead).

Grab it while it is on the play store

[Android] Work in progress: Raider – A phone to phone adb app based on @theKos’s idea

Yesterday Kyle Osborn twitted a method to use adb on an android device with usb host to connect to another android device which has debugging enabled. The scripts he kindly made available (source available at github) look promising and I decide to write an app for exactly the purpose he posted about. I already started development but am currently unable to test as I’m on a business trip and don’t have enough gadgets with me to test (lack of usb-otg cable and second android device). Looks like in the future I’ll have to carry more luggage just in case stuff like this comes out again when I’m on the road.
However, expect a first beta to be out in a week when I’m back.
