The only thing that slowed me down is the fact that I have a MAC filter on my rooter. I found that the MAC address that the watch gives in its settings/about is not correct. Every time I connect the watch to different network, its MAC is different. Don't know why. Had to use some tools to establish with which MAC address it gets connected.

Thanks again, mate.
In watch settings there is an option to disable random MAC.

I was unable to find it. Could you give me some pointers where to find it. I am very interested in this option. Thanks.
In wifi setting when you click on network which you are not connected to, click advanced and this setting should be at the bottom. Note that it's specific to each network so I suggest untick it for your home networks and leave enabled for any other.

Tank you!
I wish there was a general way to disable randomizing or ability to set it for a Wi-Fi network already connected as my passwords are so long and I will have to set up Wi-Fi connection again...
Thanks again.

Automated command uninstall doesn't execute for me, so to uninstall original shm, i had to type and run the command in a terminal

It worked for others though
Do you need to uninstall the original one? Is it needed for it to work? Sorry for all the questions I'm just an amateur when it comes to all the technical side

Hi all,

Just bought a Galaxy watch4, and after reading the initial process to install these, i assume you still need galaxy wearable before doing all of this right?
Any info on whether this works on a Poco F3?

    Here is a quick summary about version 181 for phone:
    • ECG PDF files have been compressed by removing revision history on the PDF file, changed some pictures and some are compressed (but this only dropped few KBs)
    • Added CSC restriction error message
    • Added Bluetooth control settings (Haven't seen it yet, just seen the code)
    • Added ECG wrong wrist warning
    • Added ECG wrong orientation warning messages
    • ECG Download data should tell what watch was used in the measurement (I didn't see anything about BP)
    • Overall BP and ECG optimized
    • Restrictions code is heavily modified, I'll need to revise the changes and make sure what they added does not break the MOD
    • They patched few things that I just observed where errors were unhandled (method try catch exception, the exception wasn't handled, SHM would crash without showing any message or reason)
    • Separated messages of Tizen Watches from WearOS Watches (example: instead of saying top button, they said home button, lol)
    I fear that I will have a headache lol, 171 -> 181, Major changes, wish the changes didn't include restrictions, so I will either get it working or not, I'd say 40% success on first attempt...

    So I will probably have a beta phase after me finishing alpha phase testing...
    I already have beta testers, If I ever need more, rest assured that I would announce about it everywhere...
    Version 181 is out,
    Enjoy :giggle:
    For those who are interested in detailed comparison between 171 & 181:
    That is the Samsung Health Monitor app you're showing, I was referring to the Samsung Health app. Inches and feet have little to do with blood pressure and ECG (except for mercury pressure scales perhaps...)
    My bad! I didn't even know there was such a thing. I'll install and give it a try.

    Sure enough, got it all now. Thanks!
    I'm so sorry you have to put energy in people whio can't read properly.

    I did not see there were 2 apps on the watch now and i took the wrong one of course. Everything is working now.

    Many many thanks for your effort and dedication
    It's ok, I don't mind typing for everyone the same thing, I'm here to help everyone and try to improve the thread, make easier as much as possible

    Hello Everyone,
    I hope you all are fine...

    ~~~ WearOS WATCHES ONLY ~~~
    • FEATURES: Multilanguage, no root detection, no country restriction, no device restriction, age limit lowered from 22 to 16, no lock screen restriction, No Force update to latest version) for phone, as for the watch, SHM MOD is the latest...
    • BUGS: Non that I could find...
    • BP SYNC between SHM and SH: There is an Entire Section that explains it in detail, don't miss it if you want this to work...
    • About ECG in SH: ECG has never synced to Samsung Cloud, since the first release of SHM, the ECG tile is missing in Samsung Health with SHM WearOS but rest assured that the ECG tile of Samsung Health has no use other than being a shortcut to open SHM at ECG tab...
    • SHM ChangeLog: see Post #2
    • CRASHING?: few devices crash at application start and few others crash after completing the profile, logs showed each device has a different problem, I'm not considering this as a bug but you can ask me and I'll try to help...
    • FUTURE WORKS: nothing yet on my mind, need to get my watch4 first...

    • IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT POSTING: Please search the thread and read the F.A.Q first before posting your problem, PROVIDE DETAILS, SCREENSHOT, VIDEOS IF POSSIBLE, DO NOT JUST SAY "IT'S NOT WORKING" OR "IT'S CRASHING", details are important if you want me to help you and to get it fast... SHM MOD WearOS needs to be installed on both watch4 and phone, do not post not working if you installed only one of them...
    ~~~ FOR Tizen (Active2 And Watch3), LINK BELOW~~~

    ~~~ SHM MOD F.A.Q ~~~
    First I want to say to article authors, thank you for your efforts to publish an article on this, but please do not copy and paste into your article as content may change and please provide link to the thread so people can get help and ask questions...

    Ok, now let's begin:

    1. Tizen SHM MOD and WearOS SHM MOD...?
      The watch4 original SHM can't communicate with the phone MOD, and it's not possible to completly remove the original SHM from the watch4, so I had to create WearOS MOD and rename the previous MOD to Tizen MOD...
    2. Do I need root...?
      No root is required...
    3. Does this void my warranty?
      No it does not void the warrenty or trip the know or damage the watch or the phone...
    4. OTA effect on MOD & MOD effects on OTA.
      No Effects, the MOD is independant...
    5. Do I need to install both phone and watch MODs?
      Yes, you need both, keep in mind, the apk with word phone is for phone and the watch4 is for the watch...
    6. Where is the IP Address?
      You can find it inside the developer options after you enable the ADB Wi-Fi, it takes time though, alternativly, you can go to connections -> wifi -> the wifi you are connected to -> scroll down and you'll find your IP...
    7. Can I do this from my phone?
      Yes, you can use Bugjeager if you don't like to type commands or Remote ADB Shell if you want to type the commands...
    8. How do I update?
      Just install it again and it will update, whether you install the phone app or the watch app...
    9. Do I need Samsung Health MOD, is there even such thing...?
      There is no Samsung Health MOD, Samsung Health is a core application, modding it will break many services, using official Samsung Health works fine...

    ~~~ Pairing issues with Watch4 on Galaxy Wearables (Watch4 not supported!) ~~~

    Initially it was Huawei devices but this solution works for other devices as well...

    This fix is done by Reddit u/Relative_Comparison2 & u/MelodicMaintenance

    You need Galaxy Wearables & Watch4 Plugin installed, now do the following steps:
    1. Download Samsung Health.
    2. start Samsung health then go to accessories and search for your watch (scan).
    3. Samsung Health will call Galaxy Wearables to set up the connection and a normal setup is performed.
    Now here is an update of mine if the above does not work and Galaxy Wearables keeps disconnecting from the watch4
    It was Explained that you need to have the following apps installed:

    Galaxy Wearable & Watch 4 plug-in

    Give all permissions to Galaxy Wearables and the Watch4 plugin by going app info, scroll down, permission and grant all...

    Now Clear the data of the following applications:

    • Google Play Services
    • Google Play Framework
    • Google Play Store
    • HwWifiproBqeService (For Huawei devices only, skip if you are not Huawei)
    The phone will start acting up, that's normal, so restart your phone to allow system app to rebuild itself, when the phone starts, do not configure your google account yet, first try connecting to the Watch4 again through Samsung Health and it should work, after that you can do whatever you want for google...

    One last note, disable any battery optimization, some phones have aggressive optimization, they will kill background services, this will stop the watch4 from pairing, if you can't disable it, then whitelist galaxy wearble and the watch4 plugin!

    Just a second friendly reminder 😊 , *inhales deeply*:


    *ehm* enjoy the SHM MOD now 😆...
    REPORTING AN ISSUE WITH SHM MOD: Tell me your device type and Android version, provide me a screenshot or video of where it happened and how, a logcat is appreciated, these details will help me re-create the environment and try to get the issue you have so I can trace it and fix it...

    ~~~ FILES and Description ~~~
    Here is the link to the files I am using:
    Google Drive - WearOS - SHM No Root, Country, Device, Update, Age Detection + Watch4 SHM MOD

    I believe the folders describe themselves, the APK at the root is to be installed on your phone, the file at the root of folder "ADB Watch4" is to be installed on the Watch4, you have instructions for ADB in different Languages and you have the Original SHM for the watch4 and there will be a history of the Watch4 SHM MOD...

    If you can't see the YouTube video, visit the YouTube link: https://youtu.be/ZOAxR8_aB70


    IMPORTANT NOTE: Updating Samsung Health may reset "set features" back to original values and this disables the sync, change them again to enable the sync and check the permissions of SHM MOD, it should be enabled as well...

    The steps are easy to follow, first, let's enable the set features on Samsung Health,
    1. Download from my Google Drive "SamsungHealth.zip" on your phone from inside the folder "Enable BP Sync"...
    2. Extract it inside the Download folder on your phone internal Storage...
    3. Check the extracted Folder and its contents on your phone, the path should look like "/Internal Storage/Download/SamsungHealth/FeatureManagerOn"
    or "/storage/emulated/0/Download/SamsungHealth/FeatureManagerOn"...
    Screenshot_20211216-140353_My Files.jpg
    4. Never delete this folder...
    5. Force stop Samsung Health, then open it, go to settings, then scroll down to about Samsung Health, now tap on the version till set features is enabled...

    to enable the developer mode on Samsung Health:

    Instructions in words, you will open Samsung health and go to settings then about, tap on the version till features and developers are visible. You will go inside the features and expand the "Health Analytics" set it to "DEV", then expand "DataPlatform" and turn On the "Developer Mode", when you hit back, Samsung Health will ask you to force stop the application and take you to the app info screen, you will force stop and clear the cache, this will allow Samsung Health to reinitiate a connection without security checks for SHM to sync BP with it...

    On SHM MOD, open the side menu -> Data -> Data Permissions and tap on Samsung Health, Make sure permissions are enabled so it would start syncing...!

    ~~~ Special Thanks ~~~

    Thanks to the amazing people on my Telegram group and Reddit users that reached me, thanks to everyone that tested the MOD and making it happen before I got my watch...

    Thanks to @pavanmaverick he found out about the Tizen sync working for WearOS...
    Big Thanks to XDA @Zacharee1 for decompiling and diving into Samsung Health code to find a way to enable set features on any Samsung Health version, no more downgrading...

    --- 27th September 2021 - some users reported that sync stopped in new Samsung Health, when investigated, the new update was a major update and it reset set features back to original values, it did not break the sync, do the required changes again in set features of Samsung Health and check that SHM permissions are still enabled and the sync will work again...
    --- 26th September 2021 - Added Vietnamese Language support to the phone and watch4 SHM MOD, so now the app won't be shown in the English Language, if there are any mistakes, please let me know, it would be nice to support languages that are unavailable, I also added in Chinese and Vietnamese "Google Translated by XDA-Dante63" as it's an unofficial translation + fixed age 22, I never thought Samsung would add a 4th age check...

    --- 4th September 2021 - Updated thread, added a F.A.Q section for a video I made that should answer questions for those who are new to the SHM MOD...
    --- 2nd September 2021 - Patched some new restrictions I bumped into, removed the following "low ram", "low storage" and "low battery" errors, they prevent launching SHM...

    --- 28th August 2021 - updated instructions, turned out that the Patch I applied on the Watch4 SHM MOD made it independent, no need for the Original SHM to be installed anymore...
    --- 27th August 2021 - patched the watch4 shm update 171 and released it, simply adb install it and it will update the mod, you don't need to update the original SHM...
    --- 26th Aug 2021 - Patched the watch4 SHM MOD, I never thought it would have restrictions, oh well, patch include (country restrictions removed, BP disable removed, force update removed and Age changed from 22 to 16), simply install and it will update, no need to uninstall the previous MOD... Oh and Canada does not have SHM on the watch, probably some countries won't have it too, I updated the thread to include a section for "Missing Original SHM" and I updated the ADB instructions and I removed port since ADB connects to defalt by itself, you just need the IP of the watch...
    --- 25th Aug 2021 - Another patch I have done on 153, since the link between Samsung Health and SHM is broken, I decided to remove the pop-up dialog that asks to sync, it's confusing some people... Also, after some tests done by a telegram member, it is possible to disable and hide the Original SHM on the Watch by doing Connection the watch to ADB and going into adb shell and typing pm disable-user --user 0 com.samsung.android.shealthmonitor and exiting the shell and disconnecting... instructions updated...
    --- 23rd Aug 2021 - patched SHM 153, added a WearOS logo to the phone app and changed app version label included wearos, this is just to ensure that you don't use WearOS SHM with Watch3 or Active2 because it's not compatible, patched Watch4 MOD 169 to have a ring on the widget to make it more friendly to the eye (there is a bug in galaxy wearable if you add tiles, you will see the widgets not displaying correctly, so set it from the watch if you can't tell which is the original and which is the MOD and organize it on the phone later if you want), I also patched SHM 153 for Watch4 in way that it can work with SHM 153 for Tizen, users that have both watches connected to the same phone can enjoy using both SHMs and finally, on my google drive, I decided to add "Phone.WearOS." at the beginning of every phone application, this will help users that have both Tizen and WearOs watches in knowing what each apk is for...
    I added a section of watch4 pairing with Huawei issues and possible fix, it's done by reddit user, with small collab with me..
    --- 22nd August 2021 - Initial release of SHM MOD for Watch4...

    These are photos from the Telegram group that members have done the tests:​

    The SHM MOD on the Watch4 Has an M Heartbeat as a logo to distinguish it from the Original SHM. Also, SHM MOD Widgets on the watch Have a Ring to make it very friendly to the eye...​

    Happy one year anniversary to my SHM MOD, it's been a great journey and joy to help everyone and hopefully for more to come...

    And happy holidays to everyone in advance, stay safe all, god bless you all and Godspeed...

    A message for everyone:
    I appreciate all of you trying to help when you find a problem,
    but please allow me to investigate first before you suggest your own solution,
    If you suggest a solution that is not necessary,
    some members will follow that solution and later they will ask if there is a fix instead of a solution for what they thought is a problem,
    And I will end up telling every one of them that the proposed solution is not required for those that applied that solution,
    could be few people and could be a lot, but I wish to have none...

    Everyone should be happy with no problems, that is my goal, and you can see, I do updates without delays...

    If you have a suggestion or a solution for a problem, you can DM me first, I respond to DMs as soon as I can...
    If you wish to support me, you can do so through PayPal or Patreon...
    Bless you all, wish you all a great day...
