Any chance of AW 2.0 being ported to the Gear Live?

Since there's no official support for the Gear Live with Android Wear 2.0, will there be any possibility of getting a 2.0 ROM modded for this watch?

There is always a possibility, but its unlikely that anyone will port it.

Samsung Gear Live is still receiving the security updates. Build M1D64T is on mine right now, a December 1 update.

To see it not getting the 2.0 treatment, when Samsung is no longer managing the Gear Live (remember, Google runs the gamut on OS releases for the Wear platform), is a shame. It fits all the specifications that most other Wear devices have that ARE getting updated.
In fact, the one device I can equate the Gear Live to is the Asus ZenWatch 2, which is slated for the February 9 release date.

SD400, 512MB RAM, 4GB storage, 320x320 OLED, 300mAh battery, it is 100% in range of the specifications. Yet that Samsung gave up on it means the death knell, that only emphasizes that Google only supports the relevant. I'm not shocked that the LG G Watch won't be updated, but the G Watch R will be... Is just strange, when specs-wise, it's the same.

Google's very strange about how they manage their platform. I'm hopeful we see some independent work on it. I can give or take the heart rate sensor if it means the device remains on my wrist. Any sacrifices that keep this device as my reliable companion should be worth it.

No chance now. Hopefully somebody might make a version from the others.

No mine is on M1D64T, but people are reporting receiving February security batch so i'm thinking this will be the last thing we receive.

I had M1D64T, but updated to a couple of days ago M1D65E. Really hoping we get AW2, however I'll probably end up replacing (or at least becoming main) with a round watch with mic in the near future

What's even more sad is that other watches with the exact same CPU will get their updates, but not our watch. Maybe its possible to re-use firmware from those other watches, and have a custom kernel with LCD, sensors compiled in. Maybe all that is needed is a compiled kernel module with missing drivers.

A developer ported Wear 2.0 to the LG G Watch from the G Watch R and it works flawlessly. It could be possible for the Gear Live to receive the same port: http://www.gsmarena.com/compare.php3...&idPhone3=7681
