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...
Working HD2 Green Mango With Working Marketplace
Ports on our devies are simply brilliant projects. They are, for the most part, dreams come true. For instance, having Windows Phone 7 running on a much older device was deemed by many as an impossible feat. However, after lots of collaboration between devs, the project got successfully completed by our friends over at DFT. As it is customary with Microsoft, the new updates of the OS roll out filled with bugs, bug-fixes, and new and improved security updates. Now, translating that into plain English, security updates stand for patching loopholes and exploits that allowed hackers to do more fun stuff with the device and the OS. The case is here for Mango as well, which our friends at DFT ported once more. However, as it was the case for the original port, Market does not work with the new version, or at least it didn’t until earlier today when XDA member elfinlazz released his first rom, which happens to be loaded with a Market enabler tool that he coded himself. Being connected to Live services will allow you to have the full experience that you can expect from Windows Phone 7.
Please go ahead and try it out and let the dev know if there are any problems with it.

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. For the longest time, I was not able to recommend the platform to anyone. Since then, a lot of updates have hit Wear watches, some improving battery life, others changing the...
SlimRoms' website has been experiencing technical difficulties for the last month or so, but it's good to know the team is working hard and is still on top of things.
