Is the Tizen formware region locked like the Galaxy phones?
I cant upgrade my S4 using an UK firmware as it bricks so I have to use the Australian firmware.
But the Gear could upgrade to any firmware without problems.

And should I remove all the Gear apps before upgrading as they wont with with Tizen?

I just flashed the new FW on my Gear - after that the Gear Manager has updated the apps - and it started to work with more nice view (no issues so far)

I had a gear 2 neo and sold it for a gg1, nothing I saw on tizen is worth the risk of missing out on a possible android wear port. But if I can tizen then down grade then definitely want to give it another go.

Was just discussing this with someone else. Do the odin packages that include android have the bootloader file? 55 minutes left for me to download it, so I can't answer it myself.

Question
Silly question, but can I install the UK FW on a US Gear? I noticed none of them list as US.

Edit: Sounds like Daster did it, but I wanted to confirm before moving forward.
