Hi all,

I noticed that the BSA4 update has been released everywhere except Australia. I've been able to get my hands on the firmware files but do not know how to get the watch to connect with NetOdin.

Has anyone been able to do this? I've seen videos of it for the Gear S2 and Gear S3 but there is no way to "restart" the device, only "power off".

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

cheers,
Hieu.

Sure guys. Will put something together later today after work. Getting my hands on the firmware took a bit of searching but managed to find it on a Russian forum.

Will provide a run down of the process and links to the firmware (note: only know where to download the firmware for the 46mm and 42mm Bluetooth version, not the LTE).

0. This process will factory reset your Watch, so make sure you've backed up everything you need!
1. Hold down the Home button for 6-10 seconds until the message " Rebooting ... "
2. Quickly press Home three times until the Reboot Menu appears. (The menu is available for about 10 seconds, after which the clock goes back to "Rebooting ...")
3. The menu selection is made by long holding Home button. To go into Download (wireless mode) press the home button until "Download (Wireless)" is highlighted, then hold down the Home button.
4. Download mode will load in WPS mode. Press Home twice to change the mode to the AP.
5. Connect to the access point that appears (for example, SM-R800-a2a5) (ODIN for some reason does not see the device if several networks are connected.)
6. Run NetOdin3 and then set the firmware files for BL, AP and CSC, then click Start (Copying/flashing of firmware takes about 20 minutes).
7. After the files are downloaded, the Watch will reboot. Again, hold Home and highlight & select Recovery in the Reboot menu.
8. The "Setting Up" screen and "Resetting" screen should appear and after that the Watch will reboot and boot as usual.

N.B. It is advisable to check whether you have disabled the function "find my watch" or make sure you remember the password to your Samsung Account

Files can be found here for R800 and R810 (46mm and 42mm Bluetooth / Non-LTE G.Watches) and NetOdin3 for Tizen:
R800XXU1BSA4
R810XXU1BSA4
NetOdin3 for Tizen

Did you connect to the access point of your watch via the wifi settings on your PC?
