[Tutorial] Null_ TWRP / Null_ ROM / FreeFalling Theme / Dr Who Sound,Boot Theme / & More
Created by almulder1092 @ xda-developers.com

"Work In Progress, Need to add in Screenshots, And possibly more tutorials - Enjoy"

No Support Via PM - Please stop with the PM. They will now be ignored!



Well after creating my last tutorial, much has changed, wonderful new things have come about. So I thought it was time to create a new tutorial covering the new things.

So after now I have read 1000+ of pages and posts, hopeful this will help cut down on your searches. BUT read the whole tutorial before you ask questions. There are fare to many people that ask questions that are usually covered in the OP (Original Post) of threads. Please be respectful of the Developers Time and not ask dumb questions that have the answer posted.
Things you will need before you continue reading:
  • Ability to understand what you read
  • Time and Patients
  • How to use Google Search
  • Time and Patients
  • A brain
  • Ability be patient with all of us.
  • Give Credit where credit is due
  • Lastly Understand that Nobody is responsible for what you do to your gear, except you. And using the guide below will void your warranty
Now that is covered lets continue.

First get and install Wondershare MobileGo for Andoid this will make life easier. (Google it - Link removed by the request of xda)
(If your to cheap to get this great software, why did you pay so much for a watch?)

Alternative way to download apk's from Google Play without Wondershare Download Here
(Note: I do not plan on doing a tutorial using this method as they show one on the site) (Thanks to fOmey for the info)

Alternative way to get apks to your Gear without Wondershare Tutorial Here


This tutorial will take you from a stock rom to the null_ rom with a theme installed and other options.


In this tutorial we will cover the following:
(Clicking on the Titles will let you jump to that part of the tutorial)
(But I recommend you read everything)
Note: null_ is prerooted (It roots your gear for you)
Note: Whenever connecting the gear to the PC use a direct connection. NEVER USE A HUB or such. It has been know to cause issues.
(Direct connection works best.)

Update: Jan 04, 2014

Update your gear to V700XXUAMK7 Firmware:
Update your gear to V700XXUAMK7 Firmware: (Skip if your already on MK7)
Thanks to almulder1092 for the info


Make sure your gear is running V700XXUAMK7 Firmware, (If you are, you can skip this section.)

Note:If your in the USA and there is no update yet, just download the UK Version (BTU - United Kingdom)

Let update our Galaxy Gears firmware. (A must in you want to do anything below)
Note: This could wipe you data, save anything you need just incase.

Preparation:
  1. Download V700XXUAMK7 Firmware from here - Thanks to AdamLange
  2. Download Odin from here - Thanks to daerragh (Get version 3.09)

Installation:
  1. Put your Gear into Download Mode
    a. Press and hold the power button until the Restarting appears
    b. Repeatedly press the power button until the Select REBOOT MODE appears
    c. Press the power button once to move the selection to Download
    d. Press and hold the power button for about 3 sec.
    e. You are now in download mode.

  2. Connect your Gear to you PC. (Using the Cradle and Micro USB)
  3. Open Odin
  4. Click on the PDA Button
  5. Locate the V700XXUAMK7 Firmware and select it. (It should be a .md5 file, if it is zipped, then unzip it)
  6. Press Start
  7. Once it is completed it will reboot the gear.

Note: Let your gear sit for a bit as it updates everything. I might look like it is stuck on the Samsung logo, but you should see the word Samsung pulsating. That means its working. Should it take more than 5 mins, simply Press and hold the power button down until it resets.


Note: Should you get the dreaded screen of death, just flash the MK7 ROM back onto your gear and start all over.


Screen of Death (LOL)



Make sure the Gear is activated and connected to your Phone. (Samsung Manual)

How To:
  1. If your unsure how to do this, Return your Gear. (LOL)

Installing Null_ TWRP:
Installing Null_ TWRP: (Version as of this tutorial is Null_ 03 TWRP)
Thanks to fOmey for this Null_ TWRP

Installing Null_ TWRP:

Preparation:
  1. Download Null_ TWRP - fOmey
  2. READ THE NULL_ TWRP Original Post

Installation:
  1. Put your Gear into Download Mode
  2. Connect your Gear to you PC.
  3. Open Odin
  4. Click on the PDA Button
  5. Locate the Null_ TWRP file and select it. (It should be a .md5 file, if it is zipped, then unzip it)
  6. UNTICK THE AUTO REBOOT OPTION IN ODIN.
  7. Press Start
  8. Once it is completed it will reboot the gear.
Null Quote:
If you find the recovery is not sticking & your Gear wipes when attempting to access recovery after flashing, you must root your Gear prior to installing TWRP again & Run the following commands in ADB:

*NOTE* You will gave to accept a supersuser request popup when executing "SU" command

*NOTE 2* Probably a good idea to run this prior to first installation (To save time)
Code:
$ adb shell

$ su

# mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/mmcblk0p20 /system

# rm /system/recovery-from-boot.p
ADB stands for Android Debug Bridge

If needed "ADB" can be found here on xda - Thanks to shimp208

Installing Null_ ROM
Installing Null_ ROM (Version as of this tutorial is Null_ 17)
Thanks to fOmey for this Null_ TWRP


Installing Null_ ROM

Preparation:

  1. Read Null_ Original Post. Make sure you understand everyting. What it can and can't do. (Especially about Bluetooth Tether)
  2. Re Read Null_ Original Post. MAKE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING
  3. Download Null_
  4. Connect the Gear to the PC.
  5. Open up Wondershare and select your Gear.
  6. Click on files, Select the SDcard, then copy the Null_ ROM zip to the root of the SDCARD.
Installation:
  1. Put your Gear into Recovery Mode (Same steps as Download Mode, but select Recovery Instead)
  2. You should now be in TWRP.
  3. Click on Install
  4. Locate the Null_ Rom zip file. (Scroll down the list, it should default to the root of the SDCARD)
  5. Select the Null zip file

  9. Wait for the Gear to finish installation, then Reboot.

Note: Please be considerate of other peoples time and take the time to read and search for your question before asking it. 98 times out of 100 it has already been answered many times. Let fOmey do what he does best and work on Null_ don't keep asking him questions that are answered in the Original Post.

Bluetooth Internet Access
Bluetooth Internet Access
Thanks fOmey & sting0387 for the info

Note: Phone Must Have BT Tethering Option. Most USA Users don't have this option.
Note 2: Playstore / Google Account Manager / Google Map s- These will only work if you have native BT tethering. (Third party apps do not offer the same protocols as native BT Tether and therefore don't work.)
(Null_17 fixes this issue)

Bluetooth Internet Access:

Option 1) Phone must have BT Tethering Option.
Preparation:
  1. Turn On BT Tethering on your Phone. (System Settings >> Tethering and Hotspots >> Enable Bluetooth Tethering)
Activation:
  1. On the Gear go to Settings>>Bluetooth
  2. Click on the settings for the profile for your phone.
  3. Scroll down and if you have activated the option on your phone and it supports it, you will see an option to activate on the profile on your gear.
  4. Check the box Internet Access

Option 2) Use 3rd party apps (Such as PdaNet+ / PdaNet Tablet) (Must use Network Spoofer)
Preparation:
  1. On your Gear, Install PdaNet Tablet
  2. On your Phone, Install PdaNet+
Activation:
  1. On the Phone open PdaNet+
  2. Check the box next to Activate Bluetooth Service
  3. On the Gear open PdaNet Tablet
  4. Click onConfigure
  5. Click onAndroid (Bluetooth)
  6. Click onTap here to start scanning...
  7. Once you see your phone appear, Click on it
  8. Go back to the first screen of PdaNet Tablet
  9. Click on Connect (it might be hidden at the bottom of the screen, just a small part is showing, but you can still click on it)
  10. On the Attention screen scroll down and click on I trust this application then click on OK
  11. You should now be greeted with a PdaNet is connected! screen.
  12. Open your Gear Browser and you should see it connect to Google home page.

    Note: Should Google Play and such not work even though your browser works, DBL check that you have Network Spoofer enabled and using Spoof WIFI.




Option 1) Phone with native Bluetooth Internet Access Screenshots


Option 2) Using 3rd Part app such as PdaNet+
