At this point you used to be able to "repair" the firmware on the watch using the Sony Update Service. Using your pc you used to be able to load a basic firmware onto the watch and start again...but I think Sony have removed the SW2 from this service.

I think someone on here said they used the SW1 repair option and it worked for them but i'm not sure I would be brave enough to try that unless the watch was totally stuck.....

If it is possible for you, make a backup from yours and give it to me thanks.
I managed to find this, however, I am not exactly sure for which version it is... https://github.com/underverk/SmartWa...ginal-Firmware. I am not able to get to my personal PC for some time, so I won't be able to provide you with a system dump from my watch.

Yes, they removed SW2 and SW1 option is not working for SW2!

Thanks a lot...
I saw that link, that's for SW1.

But I've found latest SW2 firmware from their package in google play

Now my problem is that I cannot restore those images, because there are some differences between those packages and what dfu-utils uses!
I've faced "Error: Only DfuSe file version 1.1a is supported" error, there are a paragraph in http://dfu-util.gnumonks.org/dfuse.html site about this problem, under ".dfu files" heading.
