Default Gear Live Stock Firmware Image - 24JUL14 & Bootable Root ADB image

Hi guys, I just managed to pull the stock firmware image off the Sprat, with the assistance of @Dees_Troy. We've been working on this for a few days. Lots of highs and lots of lows. Lots of hardware glitches, device overheating, reading kernel logs to troubleshoot problems... And you know what? All of it could have been avoided if Samsung had released a stock image.


Without any further ado, though, you can find a factory image for this device here: https://builds.casual-dev.com/index....dom%2Fsprat%2F




Here is the first custom kernel created for this device. It's mostly dees troy's work, he compiled it and made it operate, but I had to reimage it a few times to make it operate properly. If you absolutely need root for checking something out right now, you can fastboot boot this image and get it.

If you'd like to pull your OWN firwmare including the EFS(serial info) for the device, you can use this command in adb root shell after booting the above image.
Code:
cd /dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name;
f=`ls`;
for f in $x; 
do 
dd if=$f of=/data/local/tmp/$f.img; 
done;
rm /data/local/tmp/userdata.img
exit;
adb pull /data/local/tmp/
the contents of the entire device will come to your computer

now clean up the temp folder.
Code:
adb shell rm /data/local/tmp/*
You now have the firmware above + EFS data.

I mean seriously.. Samsung, WTF? I've been working on this for 5 straight days now.

Why did I have to go through the process of keeping this Quad-core watch cool while i tinkered with UART, and continuously rebooted it?


Why did I have to wade knee deep in your kernel problems to get this done?


Is it becoming apparent that Samsung doesn't want people messing with their "open devices"? I mean, I can think of no other reason they haven't released a stock image for a device which can be destroyed with a bad flash.

Either way, we finally have a stock image and that means Dees_Troy can release a TWRP, ROM devs can begin working with the system, and those in need of stock firmware now have access to it. Pretty good news if you ask me.

Thank you Adam and I suppose I can speak for every Live owner here when I say we really do appreciate it. I can't wait to start tinkering with it and lets hope we can get that WatchFace API soon. I'm dying for a more sophisticated looking face with a more blue and silver brushed metal look to it. Can't find one anywhere. Thanks again Adam. What would we do without u?

I'd like to get someone to test some TWRP images for me. Need someone that's set up to use adb and fastboot and has basic working knowledge of how to use them. Find me in #twrp on Freenode.

Annnnnd this is why i ditched Samsung after the SGSII, Im so glad I got the G Watch instead.

Seems to be a Thing now that Samsung is playing hard to beat with factory images and source, Devs should jump on some form of anti Sammy bandwagon because although this is sure a great feat in hacking but for people here who Crack flash and test stuff for devs on their devices this is a pain and slows down evolution.

if sammy continue with his imagine all the ideas they can't steal from the clever devs here at XDA, I say screw them and buy devices from companies who truly keep android open source
