TWRP recovery for LG Gwatch and Samsung Gear Live

Jul 26, 2014 | Apps, Updates/Software

The age of ROMing your wristwatch is upon us! TWRP recently managed to develop a custom recovery for the LG G watch (dory). Now, experienced modders can try and change their device without just tinkering with third party apps all the time. Beware of warranty voids as modding your device will void the warranty.

The default TWRP theme is not optimized yet for the small screen, but with a stylus pen you can access pretty much anything you want. The buttons will be a bit resized and the interface will change in order to accept screen scrolling and using fleshier fingers as well.

TWRP supports debug mode and most of the standard functions work as intended. The installation is rather simple, but the smartwatch requires an unlocked bootloader to work. All you have to do is download the latest image from Team Win, reboot it into the bootloader and flash the image in the recovery partition.

Apart from LG G watch, Samsung Gear Live can now be modded as well in the same manner. The TWRP is undersized in this case as well, but the team says an update is to come around soon. All you need now is a clear custom ROM to get your device to a whole new level!
