Gapps and Play Store clarification

  1. No smartwatch will have official/legal gapps. Google will not allow it
  2. If a smartwatch description says it has Play Store don't believe it unless there is proof
  3. The reason gapps was so easy on the x201 (TS, etc) is because Umeox preinstalled the core files, just not the APKs
  4. A working recovery should be the primary focus as ADB/scripts and all the other mess becomes unneeded. In short, support the guys working on it as much as possible.

@BPM
We did get it useful, outside of the UI formatting issues. The main issue was the multitude of PCB revisions involved which lead to supporting not one device, but a ton of similar devices under the same name. By the time that was resolved, we were pretty much burnt out and fed up. Then our work got kanged and attacked/insulted by the dev that kanged it.

My smartwatch is dead

@pablo
I read your message:
"I just had a tense moment.
I flashed the wrong recovery and this time it was as dead as can be. Nothing, not even recognised by the PC in flash mode.
I thought it was dead so after hunting around in the back of the watch I managed to find the battery connector and removed it.
Now it boots again after re-connecting
Damn, badly need this recovery!!!"

My watch is in the same situation :(, all is black. Can you say my where the battery connector is, I look into it already the smartwatch but it is very difficult.
Thank's for your help.

How did you get to having a black screen? Can you still connect the watch to a pc with the dock?
If you have to pull the battery cable it is a very tiny flat strap type connector which pushes on to the motherboard under the thin plastic cover which surrounds the sim card slot.
Sorry I don't have a camera at the moment so be very careful and don't pull any wires. This thing is not soldered and as I said it is a very thin flat ribbon type cable.
Only do this if you are absolutely sure you have no choice.
I take no responsibility for your actions.

There are many many threads about how to use the flash tools.
Just search XDA and you will find all the answers you need.
Just a simple google search gives this http://www.google.com.au/?gfe_rd=cr...q=brom+error+s_dl_get_dram_setting_fail+(5054)

That is strange - it means that maybe you didn't need to disconnect the battery after all.

Over in the other main thread there is a stock full backup (without root) - maybe give that a try?

Problem with hardware on the k18

Received my K18 today, but have a massive Problem. The watch lost the main button after wearing it for 3 hours. Found it after searching for a while on the floor... It seems that the button lost it's snap ring... Should i send it back to the seller or should i try to open it and have a look at the snap ring.

I am putting this out in all three - four threads for our watches.

If anyone has a dead/broken K8, K8 Mini, K18, K18 Mini, D5 or X1 which they do not want or can donate - please let me know via private message.

I am looking at this from a hardware level to see what battery options and storage improvements can be made and I need a watch that I can pull apart.

Please let me know - I know it's a big ask but worth a shot.

Cheers

    Ok, I'll get it uploaded soon - done

    Here you go. Make sure you read up thoroughly before you attempt to use this.

    Be sure to get the correct tools needed - I was given this file and I've checked it over. It seems fine but I haven't tested it yet.

    this one should be flash-able as is - unzip and select the files with flash-tool https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/68912738/!Files_to_FlashTool.zip

    This is a backup dump https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/68912738/W806_150901_backup_151018-125932.zip

    Search XDA for the latest flash tool - you will need it

    Wow. Didn't you read the title of this thread before you flashed a firmware on your device???

    ---------- Post added at 08:03 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:52 PM ----------

    I played around with the K18 Round I got from GearBest.

    Short review:
    + very nice
    + good quality
    + not as heavy as iMacwear M7
    + touchscreen works fine (no dead areas like on M7)
    + nice UI
    + fast charging in less than 1 hour from zero
    + hardware buttons can be used while charging

    - no Playstore. I had many tries, but logging into my Google account isn't successful.
    - Android system and apps are not designed for round displays. So mostly you miss some important buttons like OK, Next or Menu. IMHO this watch is not for beginners who want to use more than the pre-installed apps.

    I agree with you.

    I have contacted the manufacturer to see if they want to fix the Google apps issue - I'm happy to work with them on it.
    After all, Gearbest advertised the watch as having google play store.

    About playstore:

    It is strange because I could add all necessary apk to the firmware and I didn't get any errors when starting the watch. But after logging in with account and password I got the message that they don't match.

    Never had something like that before. Seems that Google sees that the watch is not compatible.

    I installed 4 or 5 apk like services, framework, playstore / vending / provision, gas or so. As I said there were no forced closes.

    I didn't find anything in the build.prop. And I tried using the complete etc/permissions from M7.
