I looked around a bit for one that had squashfs support but found nothing. Try looking through google yourself for one as I really don't have time for in depth searching. It shouldn't stick also if you don't have custom kernel as every stock android device has a script that replaces recovery on boot with stock

not sure about the mounting, but you can try deleting /system/recovery-from-boot.p which is what is replacing TWRP upon rebooting

Um dude one big detail you overlooked there, he has a squashfs system therefore it is read only and no files can be modified. However if someone were to create a custom kernel for this watch they could just disable the script from running

Will add them to this post
THESE ARE THE ONLY BUILDS THAT WILL WORK UNTIL TWRP IS UPDATED!
I DID NOT CREATE ANY OF THESE BUILDS!

Is there a TWRP with squashfs support for LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition (LTE) (codename nemo)? Or is there any information about patching and compiling TWRP with squashfs support so I can try to port TWRP for this watch? I have this watch with Android Wear 2.0 Preview 4, but right now I'm unable to root it due to the squashfs problem.

Can you even flash images to the urbane 2? If you can get adb access you can attempt to root using the universal dirty cow method assuming you haven't updated past the October update

Thanks for the guide, worked like a charm on my Zenwatch 2. just one thing: is there a way to restrict root access on the watch, something like supersu?

No, someone would have to port the SuperSU gui to android wear and chain fire has no interest in supporting wear root anyhow, however it is not really necessary on a watch considering how few apps actually take advantage of root on the watch and how much effort it would take to make a malicious app that only affects the watch via root, besides there is no information of value on your watch so that makes it pointless to attack for anything other than forcing the user to factory reset and sync everything with the phone again.
