mktool

If you need to unpack and repack boot.img, recovery.img, or loki images, then this is the tool for you. With mktool you don’t need to enter any commands. You simply place your image files in the input folder and choose from the menu options. It’s the perfect tool for modifying images quickly and easily. Mktool is very simple to use and can accommodate both beginners and advanced users.

While mktool aims to be a universal tool for all androids, it is nearly impossible due to the vast amount of android devices on the market. I have not come across an incompatible device yet. Feel free to let me know in the comments if your device is incompatible.
