There is only one custom rom out at the moment.. Also.. If you look on the play store there is an app or 2 that installs into the app drawer in the watch that gives you the option of booting into recovery... Bootloader.... Or a regular reboot

Yes but you need root to use the reboot to recovery and bootloader app and at this point we only have temp root. Unless you install the Ron that is out.

I was able to use that app with zero issues on my Gear live, and it worked every time. It may be a temp root (which I didnt realize) , but it still worked regardless via the TWRP method Adam suggested

The only thing is, Adam mentioned using command line WITHIN twrp to remove the superuser after I rooted it. Since the watch doesnt have a keyboard, the only way I was able to accomplish this was to use the twrp built in file explorer, and delete the superuser.apk manually. The app still worked after that as well so I believe I still kept root after removing it

Worked fine for me on windows 8.1. It did freeze when I installed TWRP the first time, I rebooted and then was able to install TWRP with no problem. Thank you!!
