Pollywog utility for Epic - huckleberrypie - 03-15-2017

Was a tad bored lately so I did this:
https://github.com/huckleberrypie/pollywog

Quote:Pollywog - The LeapFrog Epic Toolbox

Just a minimal utilities menu for LeapFrog Epic, the purpose being to unlock a number of hidden yet useful options that were present in vanilla AOSP but disabled for some reason by LeapFrog. Think of it as like a watered down ROM Toolbox of sorts, but tailor-made for LeapFrog's Android tablet. I came up with this as switching to another hotspot is a bit of a chore, so yeah. I know it's simple and all, and my Java skills leave a lot to be desired, but I hope this would be of some use to you guys.
Features
  • Shortcuts to commonly-used and some advanced Android features (WLAN and previously hidden stuff like the MTK engineer menu, lockscreens and developer options)
  • A link to the LeapFrog support page
  • And many more being planned

Planned stuff
  • A root exploit perhaps?
  • Cache cleaner
  • A terminal emulator
  • Enhancements to the parental controls/restrictions feature (considering how these can be bypassed somewhat Tongue)

Feel free to do whatever you want with this guys. I don't really have much time with maintaining this, so pull requests, forks or whatever are welcome. Big Grin
