Froyo Spotted Running on the Blue Angel!!!

Long, long time ago, in a galaxy far away, there was once a device spotted in the wild, running Google’s attempt to enter into the mobile platform world. This device, praised as one of HTC’s best devices ever released at the time, was running an emulated version of a new operating system called Android. This device was the HTC Blue Angel. Long left for dead, but not forgotten by many (including yours truly), some development has still prospered even though people have moved on to bigger and better things (no, we don’t mean tablets). After several years in hiatus, this project was picked up again by one of the only remaining devs for the Blue Angel, XDA member d-two. While doing a parallel development for a multi-language WM6.5.5 rom, which is almost complete in its fifth incarnation (RC5), the dev has been working tirelessly into getting one of Android’s latest versions to work on this device. The dev has not posted any download links just yet, but there is a video showing that this indeed is the real thing, booting from HaReT into AOSP’s lockscreen. The dev is also working on what seems to be a NAND boot, for which he posted a video.

If you know anything about kernel porting and development for WM devices, please be sure to stop by the thread and leave some feedback or suggestions to help the dev make this into a fully functional port.

Kernel 2.6.36

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...
