Carliv Image Kitchen is a Windows tool that lets you unpack and repack boot and recovery images. Like the Android Image Kitchen tool, you can edit ramdisk files and tweak the components of a boot or recovery image file to satisfy your need. Carliv Image Kitchen (CIK) can unpack and repack images for Android 2.3 up to Android 12.
CIK is one the best Windows tool for making edits to boot and recovery.img files and also porting custom recoveries for Android devices that do not have official TWRP support. Unlike AIK, CIK offers an interactive GUI in the command prompt that lets you get things done easily even if you’re not familiar with the tool.
How To Use Carliv Image Kitchen V2.6
CIK is pretty easy to use, all you have to do is copy your boot.img or recovery.img file into the CIK input folder and run the carliv image tool script. The script will execute in the command prompt and display pretty much everything you need to know and how to use the tool.
