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...
Mango RTM 7720 Available
A few days ago, we learned, thanks to XDA member mmian, that Windows Phone 7 Mango RTM 7720 was available for MS employees. One day later, XDA Retired Moderator itje re-posted the Mango RTM by LongShot442 for everyone who wanted it. This version is now updated with Chevron and more languages including Norwegian. Just be sure that your device is unlocked and supported before proceeding.
The developer mentions that you can’t update to 7720 when coming from DFT 7713 or 7714

Please read post #2 to see how I keep chevron unlock and add my native language to RTM 7720
1. THIS IS NOT A GUIDE ON HOW TO KEEP CHEVRON UNLOCK, THAT IS NOW COVERED (ON A HD7) IN POST #2 IN THIS THREAD. THIS GUIDE IN POST#1 IS JUST A TRANSLATED/EDITED INSTRUCTION FROM THE GERMAN ONE IN THE RAR FILE.
2. THIS UPDATE IS NOT DESIGNED TO BE DEVICE SPESIFIC, SO BUGS BECAUSE OF OUTDATED DRIVERS ETC CAN BE PRESENT. AND YOU MIGHT NOT GET DEVICE SPESIFIC SOFTWARE TO RUN PROPERLY ETC ETC.
3. ITS FINAL MANGO FROM MICROSOFT, BUT CARRIERS/OEM’S NEED TO ADD THEIR “MAGIC” FOR IT TO BE AT IT’S PRIME
4. IF YOU DON’T KNOW THE BASIC OF HOW TO FLASH, THEN YOU NEED TO RETHINK WHAT YOUR DOING, AND READ UP IN THE DEV SECTION OF WP7
I’m quite sure that DFT will soon release a unlocked and ready to flash for all, so there is also the possibility to wait for their release :-p
I just reuploaded and repost here, the file comes from longshot442. Original thread here
I take no responsibility for whatever happens to your device.

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...
SlimRoms' website has been experiencing technical difficulties for the last month or so, but it's good to know the team is working hard and is still on top of things.

A new, revamped and open source website is also in the works, with a look inspired by material design. We also got a tip about an...
