You can't flash this yet (I'm working on that, I promise) but you can boot from it!

NOTE: THIS IS A WIP. Not a lot has been really tested yet and this is posted merely for your enjoyment atm.
I don't suggest flashing anything yet, not that there is anything to flash heh.
Also, I take no responsibility if you break your watch, yada, yada.

To do this, make sure you have Android's tools (for fastboot), an unlocked bootloader, and the watch connected to your computer in Debug mode.

> adb reboot bootloader
<wait for the reboot to happen>
> fastboot boot /path/to/recovery.img


Enjoy!

Nope, though I'll try to get to it tomorrow after work! If you want, I can give you an overview of what I did:

1. Pull the source for CM11.
2. Dump boot and recovery images using dd.
3. Ran makevender.sh using lge and dory.
4. lunch'd it up.
5. Replaced the recovery.fstab with the fstab from the recovery ramdisk.
6. Ran makerecovery.sh.
7. fastboot boot'd the recovery.img

This is all off the top of my head and missing some random files you had to hack around with, of course. Hope you get it working and more progress is made because I can't get to it for another day!

I explained in the post that I thought CWM had touch built-in and have since switched over to Philz.

I wasn't trying to shoot you down just suggesting if it would be easier to iron out since its built to be touch based...that's all

Heh, don't worry, you didn't seem like you were shooting me down at all! Anyway, I tried TWRP but it wouldn't boot for some reason (it's extremely hard to debug at the bootloader level). So, I went back to CWM and got swipe control working! Here's a build of the recovery image

NOTE: To boot this do NOT flash it; you need to "fastboot boot" it. Also, don't blame me if your watch breaks, yadda, yadda.

As per the source, I'll tell you the truth, it's pretty ugly and I'm deathly afraid of git so give me a few days until I get around to uploading it.

Interesting.
I was/am working on TWRP, but my first build wouldn't boot.

EDIT: Where did you get that strap? I really like it.

Awesome! You can technically flash mods; I flashed the iOS emoji mod so now my hangout messages don't have the ugly Google ones

Same, and I gave up; TWRP's UI won't really work out too well at 280x280, IMO, and CWM swipe is already working heh. I got the watch strap from eBay. It was super cheap and easy to adjust!

Why just booting it via fastboot instead of flashing it?

and have you push your device tree to github??

just zipping your device tree and uploading it would work too.

And how you build a recovery and git look skeery?? lol
