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 :)
I apologize for my late reply, I went on vacation and completely forgot about this forum. The watch somehow fixed itself and started booting into the system correctly the next day. Still, I decided to roll back on a more stable rom until this one is completed. Thank you for your efforts!

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 watch fixed itself, but thank you for your suggestions!

Hi,

just found this awesome update. I was about to revert bacj to the factory fimrware as the other Wear2 version was literaly unuasble on the watch. This one works great!!! Thanks for your work.

Most app i installed just works fine, however i found an issue. When i ask for a screenshot or for a bug report from the Wear App on the phone, the requests are sent to the watch but i never get a response back from the watch. Is this a known issue?

Thanks

Well glad you liked
And yeah I noticed that as well, I will solve it in the next update (will release in a few days). It is basically because I removed the bugreport app which is also responsible for screenshots 😅

Finally updated the rom again (check main post), this time is much more stable and I polished a few things.
Tho I couldn't solve the following issues:
- Long pressing the Homebutton crashes it intstead of launching google assistant
- Default digital clock has an error with the 0 number and looks really offset
- Google app won't recognize the "ok google" voice command
These are all the present bugs or issues in this rom as of today, tho I can't really fix them by applying some patches or by reversing some code. I tried to mitigate each one of them with some workarounds but realized these fixes aren't optimal and sacrifice some functionality + also ruin the overall ui design, so I'm not willing to apply them.
In conclussion you might not ever see these getting fixed at all, either way, these are all very unimportant issues and I think I can consider this rom 98% finished and will probably only update it once a year if there are any app updates at all. Nothing else to say, just go and enjoy this rom if by any chance you got your lg g watch surviving today, have fun!

There you go guys, the latest update 0.4 includes the most updated google app (which can not be updated with play store), updated settings app with more control over the brightness, and a cleaned up build.prop that includes only the tweaks that really work for the better (tested myself a few days different settings and tweaks).
This is as good as it can get android wear 2.0 on our device, and this is as well the latest update ever for this rom as of today. I can finally say it's 100% finished ;D

    Been using this for nearly a week. Snappy and super responsive. Turned a watch I was going to scrap into one I wear every day.

    Thank you!

    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-newdory0.4-image
    - 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
