Epic 4g Touch Receives Sony Xperia Bravia Engine Port

Development for the Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4g Touch has been slowly increasing over the last couple of months. Just a couple of days ago we told you about the modification to allow Epic Touch users access to all their 4g settings and there’s word around the rumor mill of CM9 in the works as well.

Today, the Epic Touch got another very unique ROM to add to their growing ranks. Team Nocturnal of XDA has churned out a Sony Xperia port featuring the Bravia engine.

This very unique port has add ons and features that many Xperia fans are already used to, including:

-Sony Xperia Software
-Sony PSP Live wallpapers
-TimeScape widgets
-Sony Bravia Engine
-Custom Sony Xperia GUI by Team-Nocturnal

Along with this are some pretty common tweaks and modifications along with ACS Recovery. For those unfamiliar with the Sony Bravia Engine, you can read up about it here. The ROM is a beta version currently and there’s a working list of things that aren’t working just yet, such as some widgets that don’t work. Team Nocturnal has also been kind enough to post their official “to do” list in terms of things they’re working on to make the ROM better.

Anyone who’s looking to try out the Sony Bravia goodness can check out the full change logs, screen shots, download links and the not yet working list in the original thread. The link to the Sony Bravia wiki may be down as many sites are doing a black out in opposition of SOPA and PIPA. If you travel to Wikipedia, you may get redirected to a site where you can sign a petition against those two bills.

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...
