Do You Have A Sidekick 4G? Would You Like To Cook Your Own Rom? Then, Read This…

We have several devices on our site that are seemingly abandoned due to the low interest of some devs to look into them. One device that almost falls into this category is the Sidekick 4G from T-Mobile. If you are bored with the device and wish there was something cool to do to it, then you may want to check out the guide posted by XDA member Revolution. The dev is the chef for the Revolution HD ROM for this device and decided, after being asked quite a few times, to teach our members how to fish. The guide is complete and even includes a video in case something is not exactly clear. There will be a few tools that you will need but you don’t need to worry ad they are all free.

If you have a Sidekick and would like to make your very own rom or even if you are just curious as to how this process works, make sure you drop by the thread and leave some feedback if you got anything out of it.

This is how i made Revolution HD

You can find more information in the guide thread.

Pinsy Brings Social Sketching To Your Watch & Phone

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! The app is called Pinsy, and its release debut is a strong proof of concept with plenty of room to grow. You may remember the developer behind this project, XDA...

Should You Get Wear? Wearer’s Practical Observations

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
