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.

ParanoidAndroid/AOKP/CM10 Kang for the Xperia Pro
Now long ago, we brought you news of a ParanoidAndroid, AOKP, and CM10 mashup kang ROM for the Galaxy Ace, which was originally developed by Recognized Contributor szl.kiev for the Xperia Ray. It was a pretty cool concept. Essentially, it merged some of the features of AOKP, CM, and ParanoidAndroid all into one flashable ROM. We don’t often see firmware mashups unless something is being ported. Now, the Sony Xperia Pro has its own similar mashup.
XDA Forum Member mang.agoest has released the kang for the Xperia Pro and named it PACman. As you could imagine, it has features from all three source ROMs. The working list includes:
– USB Mass storage
– FM (for some country)
– Brightness & auto brightness
– Camera video recording 720p (no need to set audio sampling rate to 44.1kHz)
– AOKP ROM Control
– PA Paranoid Preferences
– Tablet UI
– Front camera
– Wifi AP tether
Since there is no list of things not working, it’s safe to assume that not much is broken.
