WARNING 1: this is only tested for the 2GB version. It will probably brick the 4GB version. WARNING 2: performing an update from Android 5.1 to 6 will remove the root capabilities, so you'll have to redo the whole process.

Have been looking for a way to root my Lenovo Yoga Pro Tab3 10. Here's how I did it. Thanks to the guys from xda-developers [1]!

Preparation

  • Backup all personal data from your LYTP3 to a safe host, as your device will be wiped and formatted completed;
  • Format a 4GB SD card and insert it into the LYTP3;
  • Download twrp-2.8.7.0(6)-x90-data-enabled.img.zip, and unzip it onto your computer.

One of the man's many projects: Ceramic Dog. As he's very recognizable guitarist on many of Tom Waits albums, I wanted to check him out.

A crappy recording to be found at http://audio.jerous.org/2017-marc-ribot/ !

I sometimes look at the intervals table of my workouts of my favourite run log http://runningahead.com. It's missing a speed column though, which I sometimes prefer over a pace. This little script adds it :)

I've only run it so far in

One of my favourite piano players: Brad Mehldau was performing near me. I'd already seen him at Ghent Jazz last year, together with John Scofield and Mark Guiliana, but now he was there with his famous trio.

Listen to the Brad Mehldau Trio!

Two awesome covers by his: My Valentine and Si Tu Vois Ma Mère

One of Belgium's finer free-spirit Dutch singers is Raymond van het Groenewoud, who kicked off his solo tour in de Roma.

I was trying out to see if I could use my new tablet Lenovo Yoga Pro Tab3 10) as an external screen and projector.

The most obvious method to try this is using VNC (I haven't tried anything else yet). The script below will setup everything for you.

On the server I used TigerVNC's x0vncserver. On the host side I used AndroidVNC. For anything that is not moving (like viewing photos and reading text) this approach is doable over wifi, however watching video will require you to either cut in color depth or have a lot of patience :)

My new toy is a Lenovo Yoga Pro Tab3 10. My older tablet's battery was getting flakey, and I accidentally broke the screen (it's still usable though).

A while ago I was pondering about buying a digital projector (rather than a TV), but they seemed quite expensive. This tablet has an internal, simple projector, so it's a good way to see if I would use it a lot.

Some reviews: 1 2 3 4

So far it seems like a pretty nice tablet, and the projector is better than I expected (for my requirements). I only hope it will last as long as my tablet, as I haven't found any data about the lifespan of the projector.
