Hi guys, my personal war against squashfs FS continue and for this I converted the new 2.0 Rom into a writeable, not-compressed and more comfortable EXT4 FS.

I also added a modded boot.img with some stuff like root, busybox, init.d etc. etc.

IMPORTANT: In the previous version i managed to optimize ROM ( removing some stuff ) in order to fit the system size. In this new version the original size is > 350mB and the only possible way I found was to resize system and cache partitions. By the way I'll not ask you to do anything, the installation script will do all by itself so flash and enjoy.

FEATURES:
- Ext4 FS ---> writeable and faster then stock compressed squashFS;
- Autoroot ( will be activated on first reboot );
- Busybox;
- init.d;
- 4 cores unlocked and managed by mpdecision, max freq 998 Mhz and ondemand governor;

If you factory reset the watch with the TWRP recovery installed, maybe you can enter in a recovery bootloop ( watch keeps rebooting in recovery ). If this happens flash the attached recovery_bootloop_fix.

MODS:

All Black Mod ---> settings, app drawer and other stuff in black;
thanks @Udzi for original idea and for helping me


RESTORE STOCK:

1- Download stock boot, recovery and system from here:

https://www.androidfilehost.com/?w=files&flid=173136

2- download the attached restore_partitions.zip;
3- boot in twrp and flash the restore_partitions.zip;
4- reboot bootloader;
5-
Code:
fastboot format system
Code:
fastboot format cache
6- fastboot flash all the 3 files you have downloaded at point nr.1;
7- reboot to recovery from fastboot and factory reset

works great. except after reboot, there's the chance that the connection to google play as well as google assistant can't be established.

just rebooted this night, and now either does not seem to be able to connect,
(even after doing dd command which was advised in telegram group)

I rebooted a lot of times my friend and got no issues. I think that this assistant need a lot of work on Google side.

removing and adding google account did fix it for now, let's see if google can pull their apps together to make them work better...

To install this, would I?

(Edit: I thought this would be an IMG file not ZIP)

Will there be a IMG version?
Otherwise, would I unlock the bootloader, install TWRP, push the file over, boot into TWRP and flash normally?

Thank you! It helpful for me to change DPI to 200 for perfectly using of browser, rootexplorer, etc.
BUT! Wi-Fi not work for me.
When I in the Wi-Fi settings - all fine. But when I leave settings - no connection to my network.
