Unlocking bootloader:
  1. Setup ADB and Fastboot on your PC.
  2. Enable USB debugging and OEM Unlock on your watch.
  3. Connect your watch to the PC with a USB cable.
  4. Open a command window on your PC.
  5. Boot your watch into bootloader mode using the following command:
    Code:
    adb reboot bootloader
  6. You may get a request to authorize USB debugging on the device, accept it.
  7. Once your device is in bootloader mode, issue the following command to unlock bootloader:
    Code:
    fastboot oem unlock
  8. You’ll get a confirmation screen on your watch and follow what it says This will begin bootloader unlocking process, which shouldn’t last more than a couple of minutes.
  9. Once bootloader is unlocked, your device will reboot into bootloader mode. You need to boot into system now, either press Power button to reboot OR issue the following command:
    Code:
    fastboot reboot
  10. During reboot, your watch will go through a factory reset and then finally boot into system.
  11. That’s all. Your watch’s bootloader is now unlocked.

I was able to get the T-Mobile Sales Force factory reset tool which flashes almost every partition with the firehose for the device (Security risk)
Fully wipe your device and return to stock along with removing your ESIM configuration:
  1. Download the tool
  2. Install it
  3. Run it
  4. Unlock the bootloader
  5. Enable adb on your watch
  6. Plug the watch into your computer
  7. Click start in the application
  8. Wait for it to finish and enjoy

You probably got it from the same eBay seller I did lol it was 41 and some cents lol and good to hear about the testing i've sent you a pm

I actually work for TMobile and got this watch way back as an advocate... While sales were pretty poor, this watch is fantastic and deserves development attention! If you need any help with testing, debugging, or anything else please let me know! I'm not a developer per say... But I'm more technically inclined and willing to learn if needed!

Thanks for the offer, I've sent you a pm


Edit:

Added another pre-release factory image as well as 2 post release ones including the last update image.

so, any special way we need to flash twrp onto the watch?
If you flash twrp, try to use Linux. Windows was having issues detecting fastboot mode with this watch, but unlocking and flashing through terminal worked just fine. So far, my watch has TWRP and Magisk and works fine. Now we just need to wait FOR ROMs and this watch is as good as new!

Excited for the developments. Sign me up!

Question, if you unlock your bootloader, are you still able to update to the latest version of WearOS?

Have we gotten any confirmation from TWRP team regarding an official TWRP recovery image for platy? I keep checking and haven't seen anything... Not trying to ask for ETA or anything, just curious if community development is gonna continue for this watch or not :)
