LG G Watch R
Got it working. Wear root checkers says it doesn't have root but it works with this app that requires root : https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...80.buttonremap

Thanx

Are you just saying that because there is no supersu app showing up? Just try an actual root app and then report back

Did you change the magisk policy in magisk manager to allow all?

(from PC)
1.Unlock the bootloader if not already unlocked
(Make sure to set up device with phone after unlocking bootloader otherwise no boot!)

Code:
adb reboot bootloader
fastboot oem unlock
2.flash TWRP for your device (REQUIRES read only access to system!, will post working builds in post below)
Code:
fastboot flash recovery recoveryname.img
3.Download SuperSU with busybox YDS included HERE and move it to watch with adb push to /sdcard while TWRP is booted and then install as normal zip
Code:
adb push nameofzip.zip /sdcard/
4.IGNORE SYSTEM NOT INSTALLED Boot watch to system and Now your root apps from 5.1 should work perfect. THERE WILL BE NO SUPER SU APP, IT HAS NOT BEEN PORTED TO ANDROID WEAR

REMEMBER squashfs is read only even with root so don't bother trying to modify system files like the build.prop.
If you would like to modify system use any Linux distro and unsquash the system then resquash it (will make guide if enough interest)
If you would like to change pixel density perform this command in either adb shell or a terminal emulator:
Code:
wm density <dpi>
Please leave thanks if it helped!

link die, please fix it
