Supported devices: A1609 (Chinese) and A1619 (English)
Property installed ADB and Fatboot drivers

For anyone interested on installing Stock/Original English Firmware with OTA updates.


Quote:

If you are running Android, you can Pair and Sync the watch with latest CN Amazfit app (2.3.0) but with this app you will not get OTA updates probably.

@Neur_User for STRATOSfied Rom and other stuff
@Cracklydisc for original script and other stuff
@1immortal for his support
@Alberto Ulla Zas from Telegram group for firmware dump


Quote:

1. Connect the watch to your PC
2. Unzip the the folder
3. Run flash_US.bat file for English interface (Don't do it as Administrator since is known to cause issues)
4. Wait to the end of the process and don't touch anything.

Manual method installation
Here I will explain how to install the firmware using a command window or any other terminal.

The requirements are the ones stated in first post.

On your terminal, go to the path where all the files were unzipped.

You can copy and paste all needed commands.

4. Flash the recovery
Code:
fastboot boot recovery-mod.img

Code:
downloading 'boot.img'... 
OKAY [  0.426s]

FAILED (status read failed (Too many links))

5. Wait until you get a triangle with an exclamation mark in your watch

6. Copy the files to the watch (it may take up to a minute)
Code:

adb push system.img.gz /data/media/0/

adb push flash_rom.sh /data/media/0/

adb shell rm /sdcard/recovery.img
16. Reboot the watch
Code:
adb reboot
17. Finish.

Go to Amazfit app and update to latest version.

Some extra useful commands
Wipe davik/cache
Code:
adb shell reboot bootloader
fastboot erase cache
fastboot reboot
Do a Factory Reset (You will loose all the data in your watch. Unpair the watch from Amazfit app while doing this?
Code:
adb shell reboot bootloader
fastboot erase data
fastboot erase cache
fastboot reboot
