From reading this thread, I belive that internet is avalible to the watch via bluetooth only on motrola phones and the motoactiv app.
I have a (unrooted) atrix and have the motoactv app on my phone but cannot get internet access.
Am I missing a setting somewhere? The watch will connect fine via wifi on my home network.
Re youtube, I cannot search for anything It forces close, but the list of films work fine.
Also where do you guys get your .apk files from, Im looking for the facebook widget but cannot find it, could we perhaps have a page of links?

Most of us just pull from our phones lol. Use root explorer and copy the /data/app folder to your sd card and all your downloaded apps will be in it.

Hi there!

I just want to share the list of apps that are working for me, and a problems also. :P

Astro file manager
Blood & Glory
Dolphin mini
Dropbox
G.Maps
Mobo Player
Google music
Ninesky Browser(my favorite by far)
Maxthon browser
Osmos
Router Keygen
Sygic GPS (with Mexico maps)
Angry birds
Fruit ninja (some lag)
Blackmart Alpha (same problem that YouTube, when I try to search something it crashes)
YouTube

I have a problem with the music player, sometimes I can't play music at all, with the original MotoActv music app or with the google music app, any ideas why this happens????

Thanks!

Default 5.6.0

Well, by chance I happened to grab the newest update.zip OTA (about 5 minutes ago, so I don't know all the changes yet). However, I saw that mbm.bin is once again within there, so I would highly suggest not updating. I don't know why Motorola is updating it twice in two releases, but it doesn't sit well with me. Just putting it out there for the time being.

Default 5.6.0

The 5.6.0 release is safe, you can still root it.

There's a modified boot.img over on http://dl.opticaldelusion.org/boot-5.6.0-root.img that gives root access via adb.

Question root tool & clockwork

ClearD & Jay ,

would you happen to know the likelyhood that the 5.6.0 release and the rooted boot image would work with the root tool and so on once updated? i don't want to update to 5.6.0 from 55.78 unless it has a chance of working, i haven't rooted yet but i am considering it if i can still keep the same dual-use functionality as the 55.78 rooting method.

Root tool uses the boot image from 4.55.78 insecured, the only change you would need to do would be to flash that 5.6.0 insecured boot image above (through fastboot; fastboot flash boot boot.img), then hit the "root button" and the rest will be the same, and will all work.

Many thanks ClearD, i will update(I'm guessing still possible after official update? ) , check out the improvements and now with that img, when i have the opportunity to actually root, thanks to yours and jay's hard work, the path is there. The lack of moto's vision to take this device to it's potential is weak.
Thanks again.

If you do update, I'd like to ask a favor lol. Images to build from. I'm still working with 4.55.78, I feel like I'm in the stone age.
