A useful thing will be that the displayed information could be rotated 90 so we can use the standard clip to hold the LiveView in any 'wrist-strap' as the new Sony smartwatch 2 does, instead of the silly-breakable adapter.

With this mod the microUSB will be accesible ALL THE TIME!!! to charge it and the buttons will be in one side.
If you can choose clokwise or counterclockwise (if you want the buttons by your hand or by your wrist or for left-handed or right-handed) it will be superb!

Is it possible?

Just wanna report that it crashes sometimes on my Galaxy S4 on Hyperdrive. Just shows a black page with the header and the Liveview can't connect. Stopping it and restarting the program doesn't seem to help, only restarting the device.

I believe it does fix some disconnections. It did for me, however I did not see others having the same problem so I can't be sure.

Are you able to pull logs with logcat?

I wrote a plain c application that scans a file for png signatures and dumps them into separate files

I'm writing from phone. When I'm on my laptop I'll share the code again if you like
