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...
Tweaking your X10 Equalizer
If you want to make more use of the X10’s new found root status, maybe try tweaking the Equalizer settings.
According to XDA forum member MrRusch, Android actually allows for customisation of 8 bands of sound. However, the equalizer settings are disabled by default in the X10.
MrRusch, has written a little JAR application for your Windows PC, that helps you edit the AudioFilter.csv file which can then be pushed (with root privilege) to your X10, hence modifying the sound levels.
Just open the AudioFilter.csv file in the app, edit, then save a new copy. Then, it’s just a case of following the instructions in the application thread. Your settings should be applied after reboot.
For more information and to download the tweaking app, take a look at the application thread.
