Smile Gear 2 Rom Firmware extracted

I have extracted the Gear 2 firmware to a zip so people can look at the structure and possibly start modding the device. Its extracted from the newest rom available on Sammobile. If you have any questions let me know.

Updates..

I am trying to backup the current partitions to see the kernel/recovery and not getting far. Has anyone else been working on this?

sh-3.2$ cat /proc/partitions
major minor #blocks name

Current information I can receive from the watch.

If I try to make a backup obviously it fails with the following message..

D:\tizen-wearable-sdk\tools>sdb shell
