The unofficial ethos of XDA is, always has been, and always will be centered around development and sharing. When devices come out, they are almost never live up to their full potential, and that’s quite frankly why websites like XDA exist—to make these devices better and share these improvements with others. In the spirit of sharing, the Lenovo Thinkpad has been sharing some of its apps with other tablets. XDA Senior Member Gumby63 has done a little work and has ported a couple of Lenovo-specific applications to the HTC Flyer and EVO View 4G—the FlexT9 keyboard and Notes Mobile, to be exact.
The applications are relatively easy to install. Simply download the device-specific update.zip file and flash via recovery. Additionally, Gumby63 has added some language packs for those who prefer to communicate in other languages. The applications themselves are fully working versions, so users shouldn’t expect any weird bugs or force closes.
You can find more information and download links in the applications thread. Happy flashing!
