These are the boot and system images as dumped from my moto360. They can be useful for returning to stock if something goes wrong with your device. As far as I can tell, they're good, and I have tested them in my device, but I'm not responsible if they break your device or anything else. Use them at your own risk.

They can be flashed from fastboot.

- turn off the watch
- press and hold the power button until you feel the third vibration, display will show "Bootloader version..."
- connect the jig to your watch and secure it so it will not move accidentally.
- connect the USB cable to your computer. Displaty will show "Transfer mode: USB Connected..."
- Launch a terminal session in your computer and issue the commands:
Code:
fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot flash system system.img
fastboot reboot
https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0BxTLcy78OveNWDI4d1IyZHY4RUU&usp=sharing

Code:
boot.img  md5:  f1837f04639b9372191387632d8bf537
system.img md5:  64d028f8dc800b8ca0c716c2feacc837
Big thank you to jcase and beaups, it wouldn't have been possible without their help!

Enjoy.

Hey Bro, can you pull the recovery.img from the device? I want to begin work on CWMT/TWRP, but I need the recovery.img. I'm getting the watch tomorrow, and I want to have a build of TWRP ready for it :)

EDIT: Appears I also need a recovery.fstab for this device.

Already done, I worked with @dproldan and gave him a set. Since I dont have the watch, I am leaving it up to him to publish them, or not
Got a question for you. I know that according to the instructions in the Bootable rooted image thread, it says just to "fastboot boot boot.img" and that will root the device... why does that root the device/why wouldn't you flash it? If you just boot it, won't you loose it on reboot?

Also, I know that there was some hubbub about the fact that you can "fastboot boot" a kernel without an unlocked BL, does that mean that we can use the rooted boot.img without unlocking our BL?

Thanks a billion,

You have to use the mfastboot.exe to flash system.IMG to this device or you will end up in a recovery bootloop. Also try using my tool linked 2 post above.

I am trying to root my moto360 but it gets stuck on downloading boot.img . Any solutions?
Make sure the moto 360 has at least 80% battery before flashing.

Your tool got it up and running for me. thank you so much dude! much appreciated. as i love learning the why behind the how, how come it causes a bootloop unless you use that specific variant of fastboot? is mfastboot a motorola variant of fastboot that's needed with their boot.img's?

i've had nexus, htc, and lg devices before, so this is my first run with motorola.

Yes it is a Motorola fastboot file. The normal fastboot.exe is limited a certain size. The moto fastboot let's you flash bigger images its more or less a upgraded fastboot file.

forsure, makes since. If i move mfastboot to my adb/fastboot directory, and use mfastboot commands, will that work? I prefer not to use toolkits when i don't have to (not that i'm not thankful for yours, it rescued my device lol)

I tried with fully charged battery and still it gets stuck on downloading boot.img I follow exactly the tutorial and everything on my Moro360 is the same as the video until it sticks on the downloading boot.img
