Le Pan TC970 Ice Cream Sandwich and CyanogenMod9 in the Works

The development on cheaper, lesser known tablets has been surprisingly active in recent weeks, and Matsunichi’s modest 9.7″ tablet is no exception.

The mid range tablet is currently being worked on by XDA Developer Junior Member fv+ with some help from XDA Developer Junior Member chinabull.

The duo doesn’t have ICS or CM9 working just yet. However, with updates on their progress appearing every 1 or 2 days, it is only a matter of time before they get an alpha for users to test. The latest update on their progress:

Great news!
With chinabull’s help, I found out how to generate the 20 bytes SHA1 checksum for trhe images contained in the firmware.
It is the SHA1 checksum of the image + the ‘cafeefac’ trailer + the length of the image (including the ‘cafeefac’ trailer).

I updated the C program ‘unpacker.c’ to also compute and check the SHA1 checksum.
The program can be compiled with the following command:
gcc -O -Wall -o unpacker unpacker.c -lz -lcrypto

There’s a load of technical jargon in there, but it all adds up to one thing: they are getting closer every day.

For those who own the tablet who want to keep tabs on the progress or be potential testers when a release is finally up, you can find all the information you need in the original 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...
