Yup, like I had posted before. I want the new firmware, but don´t care about warranty too much (unless the watch would break within a couple of months). Before smartwatches, I bought a new watch about every 1-2 years anyways. In terms of price, I think they were around 120 bucks in average. So not really as expensive as a smartwatch. I like having options and when I feel the watch gets old or I want to have something new, I usually go for it. Same with my glasses which usually run around 500-1000 every 2 years, depending on the frame I choose. But glasses alone (without the frame) usually cost about 300-400. I don´t spend too much on other stuff (dining, clothes, cars), so getting some gadgets every now and then doesn´t break the bank. But it´s a matter of what´s important to you. Electronic stores today try to sell additional insurances, but I actually had never a gadget break on its ownRegarding warranties, you can still lock back the bootloader in the end and hope that they don't notice you tinkered with it. I'm not sure whether there even is permanent switch that shows bootloader has ever been unlocked, so I think everyone will be fine. The alternative is being stuck with an old dead OS, so IMO benefits outweigh warranty. Plus quality control on Sonys seem to be pretty good (There are usually a lot of posts about people complaining that their watch/phone/laptop/whatever has broken, but I have not seen any for SW3), so there is less chance you will need warranty.
It'll be the timestamps of the posts that cause this issue, your thread was created as a reaction to the off topic posts so when they're moved it screwed it upHaha, now I was really confused. A mod must have moved comments from the dev thread to here, but the posts are right on top of everything else. If any mod is reading this, is it possible that posts that were moved are at least below the initial thread post, so that people know what this thread is about? Thanks.
Then the warranty is fully void if we unlock the bootloaderOkay I've told once about the TA partition thingy and I found some things out
It knows which firmware you flashed when, so they also get if you reflashed your FW to another version
Again every TA is unique as every SmartWatch and uses a SerialKey (same of your device)
Then the really bad thing: It knows when you unlocked the bootloader and that detailed
And idk if it's result of UB but the most of the TA partition is just written full of FF and 00 so no real DRM keys
You can install the app from ADB.I would like to use my sw3 as a run tracker paired with an iPhone. There currently doesn't seem to be a way to use the GPS when paired with an iPhone. It looks like there will be some increased functionality for iOS users in aw2 but does anyone know of a way to load a running app like Runkeeper to sw3 with aw 1.x? Thanks in advance.
You could look into tasker or similar apps. The problem is, those apps may use more battery power than leaving the watch as normal. However, they should be able to control the settings for you. You may need root to do so as well.If a community rom would support stuff like custom roms on phones? Especially like functions that usually don´t come in regular stock roms. I think of something like automating flight and screen mode based on time of day.
With the 2-3 day battery, I like using my watch as my first alarm clock to wake me gently before my real alarm clock goes off, so I´m wearing it during the night, but I don´t need the screen on or notifications during the night. And it preserves battery.
E.g. on my phone, I love using the volume rocker to skip music while the screen is off. Or maybe adjust vibration settings. Stock just isn´t strong enough, so I use a separate app to have the watch shake 3 times instead of only once. But this only works for phone app notifications.
