Default How does one update firmware??

Okay, I'm a Noob.

I just downloaded the new GG software update, but in order to view full notifications, apparently, one is also supposed to update the firmware.

How the heck do I do that??

(thank you in advance if you can help)

When I hold the power button down on my gear it just keeps rebooting it never showed recovery mode and what Odin version are you using b/c I don't see AP in Odin to select it.

When you see the word reboot on it you have to tap the button quickly like 5 or 6 times and that'll take you to the options select recovery by pressing the button again and hold for 3 seconds no more no less it can be tricky.

I see the firmware d/l in this thread and will do that later on today. So can we use this update on the USA GG or is it region specific? Also how do we update the GG Manager software on my GN3? I cannot find the stupid Samsung App store on my GN3. Thanks again.

I have a Galaxy Gear watch from Sprint. It is currently on MII firmware. Am I able to update this even though the firmware is UK?

People say you can.
I am Canadian run MII too, but I think tonight I will go for the Null ROM.
Null ROM contains the latest UK build all notifications work.
