Anyone braver than I am and willing to try it?

(I'm guessing it's not that easy, but I'd so like to be able to do something useful with my watch!).

It's hard to imagine that being anything other than malware of some type...would be nice tho...

Needrom doesn't let you post malware.

I'll look at it.

edit: It is legit KitKat.

It's not for the TS, but it's for the exact same PCB.

According to the ProjectConfig inside it doesn't use the same LCM in the LK/Bootloader, but it does support all of the device drivers.

Short answer - probably won't boot (but I'm obviously testing it right now).

Here's the deal folks - all these KK roms you're posting are great. They'll likely work on the TS without issue. The problem isn't with KK the ROM. The problem is with KK the Kernel/Bootloader. Both need to be present, but the LK is the most important. You can use any kernel for the device that has proper support for KK, but the LK has to have the right drivers or it won't boot.

I'm testing it right now to see if there's a chance it will work but I'm not confident it will. If it does work, for some reason, I'll let you know shortly.

edit: That's a no.

Oh noes
Thanks you anyways for telling us !!

But it also means that Android 4.3/4.4 is possible for the Omate !

Is it possible that one day, some random guy on this forum make it real? Or we gotta wait for the big bosses at Omate's company to unleash the beast (but it won't happen, they won't get any money in doing so )

I just happened to discover an app that I truely need, and that work only for Android >= 4.3... (pushbullet)
I'm so sad

Just wondering if anyone had some news on the Android 4.4 for the TS? So far, I wasn't convinced by an alternative Smartwatch running 4.4 (Ironman Unova, ZGPAX S8, etc.), .
Ideally, the best would be to have a ROM update for the TS.
Hope someone has some good news.
Thanks.

It's being worked on. The issue is that the source mtk compiled for new KK devices isn't compatible with the LCM on the ts. The bootloader is fine but the kernel needs work.

Currently I'm working on a port but without KK I'm not so sure it'll boot.

The sad thing is the source is a mess all around. I don't build kernels but the build of KitKat I have does power on (meaning the bootloader is the correct one) but does not get past the logo (meaning the kernel is not the correct one).

If all they do (or someone else) is build KK-compatible kernel for api 19, I have a KK ROM ready to go.
