If only someone can post a specific steps to reflash this dfu files or bins to our sw2. I don't really have an idea to what addresses should I download the bins. The .dfu file that Sir Bloody attached cannot be downloaded to our sw2 ,because dfu-util only supports dfuse upto 1.1a and sw2 is on a higher version. So only the parts/bins can be specifically downloaded to sw2 I think. Sorry for my bad english.

Anyone notices the following text in asw.bin?

Code:
Turning  off  Lifelog  activity  tracking  will  change  your  Smart  wake  up  alarms  to  regular 
alarms.u000du000aContinue  to  turn  off  Lifelog?  You  can  select  up  to  three  watch  faces  to  swipe
  between  when  the  screen  is  lit.  Deselect  a  watch  face  before  selecting  another  one  At  least  one  
watch  face  must  be  selected  Lifelog  activity  tracking  may  increase  SmartWatch  2  battery  consumption.
  Open  Lifelog  Steps  Walking  Sleeping  Create  bookmark  Bookmark  created  Deep  sleep  Light  
sleep  Awake  Please  log  in  to  Lifelog  on  your  phone  or  tablet.  Goal  reached!  Running  You  have  now 
 slept  <Number_%02u:%02u>  hours  and  reached  your  daily  sleeping  goal.  You  have  now  walked  <Number_%02u:%02u>  hours  and  reached  your  daily  walking  goal.  You  have  now  run  
<Number_%02u:%02u>  hours  and  reached  your  daily  running  goal.  You  have  now  walked

I managed to decompile asw.bin and bl.bin to assembler code,changes can be mode and uploaded back to smartwatch again. Also smartwatch has ability to reboot itself to bootloader mode ( I guess this is bl.bin for? ),then it unlocks rest of emmc memory and proceeds to write to it.

I'm guessing there has been no progress on this and any hacking of the SW2 is dead.

Shame, as I got this for free and frankly, I find it rather useless and don't know what the point of it is! If I was able to load something more useful on it rather than it basically being an overpriced notification device it might make me use it!

I reanimated 2 SW2 with the download of the 3 system files from /res/raw in com.sonymobile.smartconnect.smartwatch2.apk
(before black screen from flashing system for SW1)
commands:
dfu-util -c 1 -i 0 -a 0 -s 0x08000000 -D bl.bin
dfu-util -c 1 -i 0 -a 0 -s 0x08040000 -D asw.bin
dfu-util -c 1 -i 0 -a 1 -s 0x01 -D fat.bin

Hi.
I get managed to flash files to internal memory, but flashing last one (the important one for me) on to eMMC i got an "Error during download get_status" then watch goes into weird dfu-unreadable mode until i restart it.

Can this thing means that my eMMC memory is unsolidered, or damaged?

I was swimming with my watch, and as soon as I realised that it's dead I took it of. At home I fried it under a lightbulb, which was a little too close, trying to dry it out. Glass cracked into a webshape and display turned partly white. I replaces a glass and display, having one less damaged. But watch remained dead. When trying to run it again after a week or two it displays Flash FS message which brought me here.
