MicroFire Tool Shows that Even Obscure Devices Can Be Loved

When most users think of Android phones, the Micromax A60 and Karbonn A1 are probably not the devices that come to mind. In fact, most users (especially those in the United States) don’t realize that countries like India (where these devices hail from) have a massive selection of Android devices to choose from. However despite the prevalence of these devices, aftermarket development is often lacking.

XDA Senior Member Akash Akya is hoping to change this with the release of his latest tool, MicroFire tool. Designed to assist in development for the above two devices (and more in the future), so far the application has:

Boot logo changer – Easy UI to change Boot logo so that any one can change boot logo…(Now it supports only for Micromax A60 and Karbonn A1)
Flashable zip maker
Zip Extractor

While the application is only for Windows, it can make itself handy for those looking to modify their boot logo or create an update.zip easily. The developer is also looking for users of other devices to send copies of their boot.img so that he can add support for them as well. So what are you waiting on? Head on over to the original thread and give this a spin.

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...
