Did you watch Apple's VP draw on his wrist during the Apple Watch announcement and wonder "why can't my Wear watch do that?" In typical XDA fashion, one enterprising forum member has brought similar functionality to Android Wear with a twist; it works on phones and watches alike, with other platforms on the way!

CM10 ROM Editor Helps Remove Things From LG Optimus One CM
Most users get really excited when source-built, AOSP-based ROMs show up for their devices. When CM, AOKP, or ParanoidAndroid hit a new device, it’s a pretty big deal. Afterward, modders and tweakers try to make it even more customized. LG Optimus One users now have a tool to help customize the CM experience.
The tool is called CM10 ROM Editor, and it’s a pretty easy tool to use. It was released by XDA Senior Member bill.weckel, and it’s compatible only with the members of the LG Optimus One family. CM10 ROM Editor is, as stated, pretty simple. According to bill.weckel, here are the features:
Remove system apps or convert them to user apps
LatinIME Keyboard Editor – Create a mini LatinIME.apk from the language dictionaries you choose
User Apps Manager – Manage system apps converted to user apps as well as including apps from your local filesystem
Recycle Bin – Restore files accidentally removed from the current build
More to come…
This is a nifty tool for those who want to cut down on the ROM size even or perform other minor tweaks. After all, with older devices like the LG Optimus One, every megabyte counts. For more details, check out the original thread.
