As I understand that's done by update-script, but what update-binary does?

Also in lazyflasher...zip there are two patches - disabling verity and disabling forced encryption. Is it mandatory to apply both? I don't think I need to disable encryption enforcement.
Thank you!

@ingbrzy

Why do we have to install twrp in order to flash/install these two zip files:
lazyflasher-no-verity-opt-encrypt.zip and ZenWatch-3_ZenFit_remover.zip
when we can simply install them using "adb sideload <filename.Zip" ?

Hopefully the adb sideload will flash/install the two files without twrp.

Also I wonder if installing TWRP recovery might prevent Android Wear 2.0 OTA update?
I am on Android Wear 1.5 and do not want to update or get any notifications to update.

Thanks, have a great day!
