MotoACTV Tweak Pack
Earlier today, we talked about a slick addon for the Sony LiveView by XDA Forum Member jkok that allows you to shutdown and reboot your rooted Android smartphone from your Sony LiveView smartwatch. Why should LiveView users have all the fun, though? Luckily, jkok also compiled a handful of tweaks for the MotoACTV into one easy-to-use modification pack.
Included in jkok’s mod pack for the MotoACTV are the fantastic ViPER4Android Audio Effects Engine, USB Enabler, an ad-blocking hosts file, and many more. In the near future, jkok intens on adding even more tweaks created by other forum members such as ClearD’s gallery+livewallpaper ZIP and .IRS files for Viper4Android’s convolver.
It is important to keep in mind that while jkok compiled these tweaks for the MotoACTV, he did not create them. That said, having many relevant tweaks all in one easy-to-use place can’t hurt. Head over to the original thread to get started.
