So I was given this Gear 2 pre-production unit to play with, but Tizen is completely new to me and I can't get rid of this diagnostic screen. It's kind of cool to come across it, but it's useless as a device as is. Obviously I cant odin it back to stock, and I doubt it's useful like a pre-production Galaxy S5 might be, but any idea's what can be done with it?

edit: took the original photo down in case there are any IP issues that could be a prob.. Putting a blurry one up for the thread

Before you do anything, you may wanna get in touch with a dev to see if that build has root enabled!

Do you have the SDK installed? If so I would like to have you run a few commands to see what we can do with it. PM me or reply!

Let me know when you do. I got a few things we can try. Hopefully we can dump the kernel/bootloaders where I have failed with a production device. This may get us closer to getting root access.

This could be gold to the hardcore developers... =-]
