Default To-Do

To-Do list
  • Make the wallpaper same as homescreen wallpaper in the digital clockface, but add a shadow under the clock
  • Fix Dolphin Browser / Replace with another browser
  • Add gradient to some icons to make them fit in with the rest of the theme
  • Backport old pre-3.1 watchwidget.apk (new one in 3.1 has messed up placement of weather info on clockface)

I'm downloading it now. Will definitely be giving this a try. Look forward to your updates and the watch face looks good again,
Thanks for your hard work.

The rom works great! After you do those improvements it will be even better. The watch face seems a little glitchy though, sometimes it shows the weather and some times it doesn't... Anyway I could fix that?

Thanks for this new ROM 3.1...will definitively give it a try soon

PS:
I've heard rumors saying that, with official FW 3.1, it's no longer possible to install apks "from unknown source" (no more access to this check-box): can u confirm that and/or have a work-around?
(BTW, I'm using Snappea for side-loading apks, so I don't need it, but it could help a few people around...)

@adanteny Nah bro, it's an incorrect rumor. You can definitely sideload apks just like pre-3.1

@Shaggs1983 Yeah, I experienced the same glitchyness for the weather even in stock 2.5, I guess you could try connecting to WiFi on the ZWatch, then open the Weather app and click the refresh icon. That should hopefully get the weather information onto the clockface manually.

This is an old "feature" afaik (v1.6?)
Whenever I need to 'refresh' the Weather Info on the main watchface (for example after a fresh re-charge), I always go the Weather app, wait for update (over Wi-Fi) and then come back to watch. Only way I've found so far...

Hello

Is root working for you guys, because for me none of the 3.1 based firmwares could give root access to applications. I tried this rom as well and no applications could ask for a root access. Everything says there is no permission.
OBEY!!

Also curious about this. Love the rom though, works great so far!
