How to install flashtool

Introduction to Flashtool
Flashtool is a flashing software that can be used to :

  1. Flash original Images (Android 1.6, 2.1, 2.3 Images)
  2. Root your phone
  3. Install Recovery, Busybox, custom kernels
  4. Clean your Rom (remove /system/apps apps of your choice) (Be careful, unless you really know what you do, do not modify the default list. This can make your phone stuck at the SE Logo)
  5. Clear dalvik cache
  6. Optimize (install of JIT v2) (Disabled in 0.4, will readd it as a plugin for 2.1 phones only)
  7. Customize (installs apps found in the custom/apps folder of the flashtool)
  8. Clean uninstalled (remove any references to system apps removed in the Clean (root needed) step)
  9. Edit any text file on the device
  10. Rebrand your device
Requirements
Before downloading and even installing, disable your antivirus. The package is virus free. Antivirus complains about psneuter and zergRush root exploits and I still haven’t found how to fool the antivirus.
