Hi, I have a Ticwatch Pro 4G/LTE (Catshark) [USA]. Do you know if it is possible to flash the EU stock firmware? I find so many comments here in the blog but, after a long research, seems I didn't fine a final answer to that :(
Can someone highlight me if was able to do the "conversion". For sure EU firmware seems is still getting updated, while US one no :(
Thank you!

Its not possible, I tried. Did you get the custom rom to boot on the your Ticwatch? I have the same one and I seem to not get it to boot without flashing the stock kernel! Any info is mush appreciated!

I don't mean to say you are wrong but to share my experience. September of 2021 I got a TicWatch Pro 4G (catshark) and I live in the US. Brand new, but I can not tell you what firmware it came with. I flashed the U.S.A rom the moment the battery got to 50%, lol. I had nothing but issues. I flashed everything over and over. I think I could win a TickWatch setup Speedrun by now, I should summit my time☺️. I made a bash script to automate the whole flashing process because I was tired of it.

I was out of ideas. I said "F it" nothing left to flash but the EU version. To my surprise it works perfectly, even data with Verizon, text, everything works for me, even Majisk. Flash Magisk 20.4 and you can install some modules. It's all kinda pointless on a watch though
I know the question is old by now but maybe it will help someone out just getting a TicWatch.

Can you post screenshots of such a setup please? I have posted several screenshots of my setup in other post and I can tell you that I believe there is no way that the EU rom will work on US Verizon. So please, post screenshots of rom build version and working Verizon signal, if you don't mind! I'm sure I'm not the only one that doubts such a working setup! Thank you!

Network State says "Disconnected" not sure what that's about but Verizon works as it should. Phone number is there, I purposely didn't show the whole number. I couldn't tell the EU version from the US by looking at firmware version but It's the Rom labeled "EU" is all I know.
I flash it manually with a rooted Note 10 if that makes any difference. Never connected the watch to a pc. I
