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.

Material and Material Dark Hit Samsung’s Theme Store

The latest version of Touchwiz, launched alongside the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, was aimed at providing a vastly improved software experience in lieu of the bad reputation its predecessors had gained. While this iteration turned out to be a vast improvement in terms of lack of bloatware, fluidity and user experience, Samsung's OEM skin fell short in the aesthetics department by a long shot, abandoning a plethora of Material Design principles and leaving users wanting more. However, Theme Store...

Swappa’s New App Helps You Value Your Device

There comes a sad time in everyone's life where you must part ways with your gadgets. Perhaps they are dropped from a height, carelessly hardbricked, or simply stashed in a drawer in favor of a shinier upgrade. Alternatively they might enter the world of the second-hand market, and become someone else's daily driver. Swappa is especially popular for this purpose here at XDA, where thousands of users trust the site enough to buy and sell their devices through it.
