In theory we could try to push update.zip via waterplugin...

Not tested yet...

Sidenote...
My Phone is rooted... so I can replace update.zip and try to push to Watch...

Only idea...

Best Regards

@vendn

If you have ABC Power and you can count from 0 - 10...
Then EVA8 is not latest...

Remember Samsung Rollback Prevention Crap...

So IMHO better NOT downgrade... to prevent """magic"""...

Only if you know what you do...

With my third GW4 SM-R870... EVA8

I realized Code *#0808# is blocked in CSC DBT...

If I switch to BTU I can enter USB Settings...


B

No luck with any kind of old "magic" in EVA8...

No CSC change no FOTA Manager etc...

Still no access to /cache/fota

blabla...

So all things not work since EVA8...


C

I have only 1 Key... the Power Key...

So I have to prepare few things before I can do stupid tests...

For instance to leave Fastboot Mode I was forced to use Screwdriver... to leave this Mode...

Because Key is absent...

D

The second GW is also SM-R870... but seems dead dead... no luck...

I will try to solder wires... mabye lifesign... but...


E

Short tried to install APKs from Combination Firmware...

But all seems marked as Factory crap...

Code:
D:\Android\ADB>adb install BluetoothTest.apk
Performing Streamed Install
adb: failed to install BluetoothTest.apk: Failure [-3001: INSTALL_FAILED_REJECTED_BY_BUILDTYPE]


F

I am in Standalone Mode... to prevent Firmware Update...

I need EVA8 for stupid tests...


G

Rumour maybe downgrade possible... but seems to create trouble...
BT address gone... no pairing

FOTA Registration failed... so no Firmware Update possible...


Only as info...

Best Regards

    It seems I can not give Apps/APKs Root Permission...

    For now only via ADB WiFi...

    Hmmm.

    But pairing with Phone no problem yet... setup done.

    To prevent Software Update I hope this work...
    Code:
    freshbl:/ # pm uninstall -k --user 0 com.wssyncmldm
    Success

    Great news !
    Will it be possible to root only using Wifi or will it be necessary to disassemble the watch?

    I want to make a small contribution to the thread in question, I have a gw4 ldu which did not allow any device configuration. I downloaded the SM-R890 EVA8 file and unzipped it with 7zip and then retransformed in tar format again with 7zip. I then connected the gw4 with netodin and uploaded the file to the device. Finished the job everything works wonders, it also received the latest update released by samsung. Tanks to Adfree for his hard job
