    Whoa, finally something I can use that piece of crap for :) I'm looking forward to that "use it as a display over usb" firmware. In the mean time: I moved the google code project for the app to github since I am actually using github for other projects now. (I am not going to continue...

    Jep, it's dead I haven't used the liveview in a loooong time (since the wristband broke). For the people who still want to play with their liveview there is some usefull information available in this topic, but I strongly recommend new users to look for another device. Another final thanks to...

    The topic is not dead (yet), but you are right: currently I don't have time to work on the openliveview app. The problem with implementing plugins (and about anything else) is that the firmware in the liveview is absolute crap. You send it one thing it does not like and the device disconnects...

    Pressing the power button does turn the screen on and off (I don't know how long the battery lasts though)

    Android 4.3 I upgraded my phone to Cyanogenmod 10.2 (Android 4.3) and now I can finally use OpenLiveView again :) (Thank you Google for FINALLY fixing the bluetooth stack)

    I completely overlooked your post, sorry! It's great that finally someone has rewritten the bluetooth and protocol stuff! Now the big question: does your code work on Android 4.2.x? If it does it would be a big help (since my code fails to work on everything later than Android 4.1...). To be...

    That's great! If the api also allows for notification history (which seems like it does) then it would be possible to show notifications including their icon and the button for showing the app on the phone would work... Now I hope they fixed the bluetooth stack...

    IRC channel Thanks to the good idea from UnderSampled we now have a channel on freenode:*#openliveview Using IRC for the first time can be difficult. So for the people who do not know how to join a channel on freenode using an IRC client there is the webchat. Just go to this website...

    If you have experience with programming for Android: yes, you can look at the code and the debug output and maybe you can code a solution. I wrote most of the code in the OpenLiveView app but I can't get it to work on CM10.1 myself :(. I blame Google for using their own crappy bluetooth stack...

    Post [WIP/DEV/GUIDE] Debian Linux armhf

    How to compile the kernel? I succesfully got debian running on my iconia a500 :laugh: Building my own rootfs and getting the wifi to work were not that hard, but I still don't know how to compile the Linux kernel for the a500 from source. I already found the git repository of rogru82...

    Thread [GUIDE] Upgrade HBOOT from 0.95 to 1.39

    Here is how I did it: You need: - Fastboot (from Android SDK) - This file: https://www.dropbox.com/s/9aay5ktvtyqci4j/firmware.zip - Your "Unlock_code.bin" file Do the following: - Boot into the bootloader (if you don't know how please don't try to do the other steps) - Check your CID and...

    Yes, there is. I think you can use the command you found but instead of OLV_ADD_NOTIFICATION use nl.rnplus.olv.alert.add Maybe I changed other things too, so if it doesn't work please tell me and I will look into it. ---------- Post added at 01:41 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:11 PM...

    It's in the settings menu of the app. (To the other developers: feel free to post a donate link, I will add it to the app!) Huh? What? This project:http://www.openliveview.com/ http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1616059

    If I understand you correctly you want to make a version of OpenLiveView for Windows Phone? The OLV firmware and the OLV app are currently two close, but different projects: The OLV app currently only works with the sony liveview firmware because the OLV firmware does not support bluetooth yet...

    Post LiveView reverse-engineering effort

    You got me thinking and I think I figured it out: Sony uses a little trick: you can tell the liveview to show a bitmap instead of text as notification content and maybe also in place of the two strings in panels. That way the Sony app can generate bitmaps using the same font as the device uses...
