Check back often as this will be a work in progress
Please vote yes or like so I can get a feel for how many people are interested in a thread like this so I can decide whether or not it's worth my time to continue it.
I've also provided two prerooted system images ( just be sure to follow steps 1 thru 12 and step 18 ( optional depending on the image )
Let's start by voiding your warranty lol by unlocking the bootloader ( Warning this will erase all data and factory reset your watch ). You will need an adb fastboot program of your choice installed on your computer. I prefer minimum ADB fastboot link in downloads section. Plus the proper drivers ( I will be providing links to them as well later)
Now what I like to do is create a folder on the desktop of my computer and name it urbane. Then download all the files and apps I will need and put the in the folder.
That way you can open that folder and have ADB open at the same time and you can just drag and drop the file your planning on pushing or flashing to your watch by placing it after the proper command. Which will be explained later.
1- On your Watch go to settings
2- Scroll down to about click on it
3- Find and click on build number 5 to 8 times
4- Swipe back and now go into developer options and enable USB debugging
5: Put watch in the charger and plug into computer wait for computer to recognize it and install the drivers
6- Now open terminal emulator (minimum ADB fastboot) on your computer and without the quotes and hitting enter after each command type in
You should see your watch there
7- Now type
"adb reboot bootloader"
8- Wait for it to boot into fastboot mode then type
"fastboot oem unlock"
9- Follow instructions on device
device will factory reset & reboot
10- Wait for it to fully reboot then follow steps 1 thru 7 again and we can flash TWRP
This is where the drag and drop comes in. In the command line where you see (drop here) that's where you will grab the file/image from your urbane folder and drop it onto the terminal screen
11- Now that you're back into fastboot mode type in
"fastboot flash recovery (drop twrp image here)"
12- OK let's see TRWP so type in
"adb reboot recovery"
Alright now that we know we have TWRP
Do a backup and reboot
Now is a good time to install a file browser, if you haven't already done so and advanced settings. I prefer the file browser I listed in the downloads section as you can send and install apks and files from your phone to your watch.
Now we're going to pull that backup to our computer
Use the file browser on your watch to get the exact path to your backup location which will look something like this /scars/TWRP/BACKUPS/and a bunch of numbers and letters/
So type in
"adb pull /sdcard/TWRP/BACKUPS/*************/ (drop your urbane folder here)/"
Wait for it to finish will take a few minutes and reboot
13- Plug your watch back into computer and wait for computer to recognize it again. Now we can install super su
"adb push (drop su zip here) /sdcard/
14- Reboot into recovery
" adb reboot recovery "
Now's the tricky part, using TWRP's tiny navigation go to install then install zip then to sdcard and find and click on the su zip and install. Reboot
15- Now let's install busybox ( Note if you are going to install skin's kernel you can skip this step and proceed to step 18 as his kernel had busybox built in ). With the watch plugged into your computer. ADB and your urbane folder open
"adb push ( drop busybox apk here) /sdcard/"
16- On your watch open the file browser and navigate to the busybox apk and click on it. It will install and do is thing, once installed go to your applications find and click on it. It will act weird then probably say it's stopped working but that's OK it's installed and working
17- Kernel time
"adb push ( drop kernel image here) /sdcard/"
"adb reboot recovery"
In recovery click install then click image then click boot image
And navigate to your sdcard and find skin's kernel click on it and swipe to install
18- Let's start by doing another backup, so assuming you've already backed up at least once already and have pulled the backups to your computer. You can if you haven't already done so delete the backups on your watch before you backup again
19- Next let's take some control over our new custom kernel by installing kernel auditor
"adb push (drop kernel auditor apk here) / data/local/tmp/"
"adb install -r ( drop kernel auditor apk here)"
Reboot and enjoy
