Introduction:
This is a list of all known OTA's for the Samsung Gear Live watch

The Gear Live has it's ROMs built directly by google, instead of Samsung.
How to flash:
  • Requirements:
    • Stock recovery
    • Unmodified /system
    • Unlocked bootloader
    • Basic understanding of command line/shell

  • Unlock your bootloader
    • Download and set up adb and fastboot
    • Reboot into fastboot mode
    • Open up a command prompt/shell where you saved fastboot
    • enter into command prompt/shell: "fastboot oem unlock"
  • Enter recovery mode via onscreen buttons
  • Enable recovery ui
    • (How do you do this for this device?)
  • Set up adb
  • Select apply update from adb
  • enter into command prompt: "adb sideload <path to saved update.zip>
FAQ:
  • How to find the ota?
    • If you're rooted, wait for the device to prompt you to update, then check /cache for the file
    • If you're not rooted, wait until the same time and do an adb logcat and look for a line with .zip in it
  • Why isn't the latest ota listed?
    • We can only list what we have, if the ota from Build X to Build Y isn't listed, we dont have the file for it yet.
  • How do you setup adb/fastboot
    • Please read the stickies in the general subforum, this is not a formal guide
  • Do I need to unlock the bootloader to flash the update zip?
    • Yes, if you wish to do it manually.
      If you allow android to prompt for the update, you do not need to unlock
  • Can I flash this if I have a custom rom?
    • No, you must be on a stock AND unmodified rom
  • Can I flash this if I'm rooted?
    • Only if you have not modified any files

KMV78V is rolling out for the G watch and Gear live.

If you have one, please check either the logcat of either the phone it's paired to, or the watch itself for the filename.

If anyone is on KMV78N or KMV78V and gets an ota, please check your logcat for the ota filename, we have KKV81 -> KMV78X so far

FYI retail Gear Live devices from the Play Store seem to ship with KKV81, which is an older, pre-release build, even though it has a. It doesn't even function the same way as the current KMV78X build.

Can't get the gear to recognize in recovery for the ADB sideload tried on both Windows and Mac. Works for Adb when the device is on and fastboot commands just drops out when going into recovery....

assuming you're in windows: are you sure the driver is installed when in adb sideload mode? Windows considers it a different device from normal adb

Is there a special driver I have the SDK and the google driver. The PC doesn't even detect it as soon as I enter recovery and doesn't change when I select adb sideloaf

I had the same problem I actually ended up installing twrp and pushing the update to my watch and installing it through there. The odd pay is it had no problem with fastboot or adb in any other part of the phone only if I selected install from adb it wouldn't even show up in device manager. I even tried to do the same thing in twrp adb works in regular recovery but as soon as I chose adb sideload under Advanced my computer stops seeing it.
