This is a list of all known OTA's for the Sony Smartwatch 3

The Sony Smartwatch 3 watch has it's ROMs built directly by google, instead of Sony.


File List:
None yet


How to flash:

  • Requirements:
    • Stock recovery
    • Unmodified /system
    • Unlocked bootloader (Is this needed?)
    • Basic understanding of command line/shell (to unlock bootloader)
  • Unlock your bootloader
    • Download and set up adb and fastboot
    • Reboot into fastboot mode (How do you do this for this device?)
    • Open up a command prompt/shell where you saved fastboot
    • enter into command prompt/shell: "fastboot oem unlock"
  • Enter recovery mode via onscreen buttons
  • Enable recovery ui
    • (How do you do this for this device?)
  • Set up adb
  • Select apply update from adb
  • enter into command prompt: "adb sideload <path to saved>



  • How to find the ota?
    • If you're rooted, wait for the device to prompt you to update, then check /cache for the file
    • If you're not rooted, wait until the same time and do an adb logcat and look for a line with .zip in it
  • Why isn't the latest ota listed?
    • We can only list what we have, if the ota from Build X to Build Y isn't listed, we dont have the file for it yet.
  • How do you setup adb/fastboot
    • Please read the stickies in the general subforum, this is not a formal guide
  • Do I need to unlock the bootloader to flash the update zip?
    • Yes, if you wish to do it manually.
      If you allow android to prompt for the update, you do not need to unlock
  • Can I flash this if I have a custom rom?
    • No, you must be on a stock AND unmodified rom
  • Can I flash this if I'm rooted?
    • Only if you have not modified any files

Kernel source for kitkat-wear Tetra

hi All,

Today, we pushed a kernel project for kitkat-wear release. The kernel source can be found on the android-bcm-tetra-3.10-kitkat-wear branch in the kernel/bcm project. It has the following tags:
android-4.4w_r5 Factory-ROM
android-4.4w_r6 update #1


There will be an ota when the product launches.
When it finally ships, could someone hook it up to wireshark/etherial/fiddler/<preferred network sniffer> and grab the full url name along with the filename of it?

Also could someone not update theirs immediately and dump the rom when a custom recovery is eventually made for it?
