Swing and Miss: Motorola RAZR i Kernel Source Almost Here
The newly announced Motorola RAZR i is what many people looking for change have been waiting for. Well, maybe not looking for change, but rather looking forward to Intel’s entrance into the mobile handset market. Talk began regarding the Medfield platform, which is essentially an Intel Atom CPU and a PowerVR SGX 540 GPU, which actually brings devices one step closer to being full laptop replacements. For those who guessed that Google would be the first to take them for a spin, you were correct.
Shortly after being released, we noticed a thread started by XDA Forum Member pOOBAH1973 where it stated that the kernel sources for this device were already available from Moto/Google. The nano second that piece of information became available, Motorola devs jumped in head first to try and download this source. However, according to XDA Forum Member mattlgroff, the links, while valid through MD5 validation, seem to be yielding a corrupted download. Every mirror available has been tried by him as well as other devs, just to arrive at the same result.
The issue was already reported. However, if anyone from Motorola or Google happens to read this, please note that the sources being provided are corrupted. Thank you for the attention on this matter. We definitely look forward to seeing the complete sources and what our devs can do with them. Please leave some information if you happen to download the correct file from anywhere else, and share it in the thread linked below.
Source is finished… but the kernel source is corrupted upon download.

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...
