[ROM] [7.1.1] Modded & Updated AW 2.35 lenok2dory (Android 8 style)

Search This thread
banner.png
Soo I found my watch a few days ago and I thought about giving it a second life, and since there is no develoment or updates for lenok anymore I tought it might be a good idea to make my own rom with an android 8.0 style to it. I tried my best to make the system look as close to android 8 as possible while also updating some apps and improving the overall experience. You might wanna give it a try!

Flashing intructions >>

- Download the newdory.img and the boot.img available at the links below
- Enter bootloader in your watch (swipe from top left to bottom right corner at lg boot screen)
- Reboot into TWRP recovery and choose Wipe > Factory Format > Swipe right.
- Now reboot into bootloader (aka fastboot) again
- Now type fastboot flash boot path/to/boot/image/
- Then type fastboot flash system path/to/system/img/called/newdory.img
- Reboot your watch (with fastboot reboot for example)
- Wait patiently, once booted up leave the watch updating it's apps for a few hours, after that, enjoy your new oreo-styled watch! :D

Great ROM! However, I am experiencing some issues with it, one of which is probably my fault.

1. With my current setup, my watch always boots into recovery even if I select boot to the system. The only way I am able to boot it into the system is by using the "fastboot continue" command.
2. My watch has a white spot on bottom right of the screen, which I am sure is not a hardware issue as it worked fine in TWRP and when I initially boot in the system.

And, yes, I did try flashing everything again. So, if you know how I could fix this, I would highly appreciate that :)

Okey, well for the first issue I would recommend going inside twrp recovery > wipe > factory reset > swipe right. Then reinstall the rom again
And for the second one, it's not an issue, it's an app that comes pre-included so that you can open the apps list by pressing the white dot on the corner. You can customize it by going into apps > HomeButton > and changing transparency or position there

The white spot is intentional. In WearOS 2.0, you can only access some features with a hardware button. Because the G Watch does not have a physical side button, this white spot serves as that. It is a virtual button that emulates the button on the later-released G Watch R.

I also have the same issue with the "fastboot continue" command. However, I only started to experience this when I unpaired the watch and it tried to do a factory reset. Maybe the boot flags were messed up, but I have no idea. I'll try the fastboot continue command and see if I can get it to work. I haven't tried that since when I started having the issue, I just left my watch be.

EDIT: I didn't see OP's response when writing this. Basically this can be ignored :)
