Read ( 72d206e0d237&usg=ALkJrhhcBQ4EcfBV59foh-NvZ-4vwtF_PA) what it does. Some of it you can do yourself. It would require high speed internet. I would be wary of installing anything like that which needs chmod to work.

The website doesn't make a too legit impression, but I wouldn't dare judge it isn't.

However, such a tool seems quite unnecessary anyway.

Why don't you contact the author and get the source code if not published on the website?
