Previously I talked about the Pebble Time Kickstarter, and why I thought it was the most practical smartwatch to buy in 2015, and that I decided to be an early backer on Kickstarter. Well as of this morning an interesting development has come from my - currently - favorite smartwatch company.

First AOSP 2.3.5 ROMs Appearing
XDA member AdamG has posted the first AOSP 2.3.5 ROM. It is not full AOSP as it has a few bugfixes incorporated as well as a few added features and a minimalist approach with the included apps.
Some of the more notable features include:
- The ability to download any file type;
- SIP calling over 3G built in;
- The ability to sync your facebook contacts;
- An advanced power menu including screenshot options.
As usual, this ROM requires a full wipe before flashing and all of the usual disclaimers apply. This ROM is still also in the testing stages so expect a few bugs but it seems to be pretty solid as-is.
If you want to check out AOSP 2.3.5 as it should be, barring some dissenting opinions regarding facebook, then give this one a look. It’s already stable enough to be a daily-driver and this should be a step up from your old ROM, and definitely a step in the right direction.
You can find more information in the rom thread.
