Hey everyone, I did some poking around on samsung's open source portal and found an 'inquiry' section.
maybe if everyone that is interested in getting KK on the gear for android wear to work submitted an inquiry then we could make some grade A headway.
I just submitted this with the Message something along the lines of "Was there a KitKat test build in progress before the switch to Tizen and is there a possiblity of getting the source code for a KitKat on the SM-V700?
Sorry for not responding, been a bit busy. Still trying to get a kernel dump of the Gear Live to do some comparison. Shouldn't be too ridiculously hard, I've definitely seen things that seemed harder than this done. So if we keep at it, we might be able to get it booting at least.
fomey, can I get your attempt port that got to the bootanimation? I want to do some comparison to my attempt. Also, when you get your gear live, if you could dump the boot.img for me, I would greatly appreciate it.
This is my first attempt at porting Android Wear to the Galaxy Gear! I am not an experienced dev and this was done fairly quickly using null_23 as a base and the Gear Live system dump. This is not at all ready and definitely not ready to flash. If you do decide to flash it, you risk bricking your device. That being said, I am requesting that a more experienced dev check over my work. If it seems in order, then it will be tested, until such a time, test at your own risk.
