APK Notes:

FlashFire v0.50: Open to the public

With this release, FlashFire leaves Google’s awkward BETA program, and is available through the Play store for everyone.

This does not mean FlashFire should no longer be considered BETA or dangerous, and it definitely doesn’t mean it’s feature complete.

This does mean you can now leave ratings and comments. Everybody who leaves a 5 star rating might get a warm and fuzzy feeling for a second or two, so what’s keeping you?

I’ve also created a small website for FlashFire located at flashfire.chainfire.eu/ , containing quite a bit of information on FlashFire usage and specifics. If you squint, it might even look like a manual.

This update works around all known issues with N Preview, and adb backup/restore functionality has also received some much needed bugfixes.

Unfortunately, I’ve had to revert lz4 compression back to the single threaded model, as the multi-threaded implementation will occasionally segfault during restore. I hope to find a proper fix for this soon, as this revert may reduce backup/restore performance.

Discussion, suggestions and bugreports should keep going the XDA thread as usual: forum.xda-developers.com/general/paid-software/flashfire-t3075433

– Fix compatibility with N Preview 3 (in used libraries)
– Added ‘Restore from ADB’ option to ‘No backups found’ dialog
– NP3: Work around ART crash
– NPx: Work around ‘adb restore’ bug by using ‘adb push’ instead
– 4.2: Fix StatFs crash
– ADB: Authorize all connections
– ADB: Fix restoring not doing anything on some devices
– Force ‘clear cache’ option to show UI
– Include filesize in cache validation
– (Temporarily?) Switched back to single-threaded lz4 implementation due to the multi-threaded version occasionally segfaulting
– Add choice for visiting either FlashFire’s website or the XDA thread when tapping the top card
