[Tutorial] Null_ TWRP / Null_ ROM / FreeFalling Theme / Dr Who Sound,Boot Theme / & More
Created by almulder1092 @ xda-developers.com

"Work In Progress, Need to add in Screenshots, And possibly more tutorials - Enjoy"

No Support Via PM - Please stop with the PM. They will now be ignored!



Well after creating my last tutorial, much has changed, wonderful new things have come about. So I thought it was time to create a new tutorial covering the new things.

So after now I have read 1000+ of pages and posts, hopeful this will help cut down on your searches. BUT read the whole tutorial before you ask questions. There are fare to many people that ask questions that are usually covered in the OP (Original Post) of threads. Please be respectful of the Developers Time and not ask dumb questions that have the answer posted.

Things you will need before you continue reading:
  • Ability to understand what you read
  • Time and Patients
  • How to use Google Search
  • Time and Patients
  • A brain
  • Ability be patient with all of us.
  • Give Credit where credit is due
  • Lastly Understand that Nobody is responsible for what you do to your gear, except you. And using the guide below will void your warranty

Now that is covered lets continue.

First get and install Wondershare MobileGo for Andoid this will make life easier. (Google it - Link removed by the request of xda)
(If your to cheap to get this great software, why did you pay so much for a watch?)

Alternative way to download apk's from Google Play without Wondershare Download Here
(Note: I do not plan on doing a tutorial using this method as they show one on the site) (Thanks to fOmey for the info)

Alternative way to get apks to your Gear without Wondershare Tutorial Here


This tutorial will take you from a stock rom to the null_ rom with a theme installed and other options.


In this tutorial we will cover the following:
(Clicking on the Titles will let you jump to that part of the tutorial)
(But I recommend you read everything)
Note: null_ is prerooted (It roots your gear for you)

Note: Whenever connecting the gear to the PC use a direct connection. NEVER USE A HUB or such. It has been know to cause issues.
(Direct connection works best.)

Added NotiCounter Widget Tutorial

Update: Jan 04, 2014
Added to Xposed Tutorial for new options included in Null_17

Update your gear to V700XXUAMK7 Firmware:

Update your gear to V700XXUAMK7 Firmware: (Skip if your already on MK7)
Thanks to almulder1092 for the info


Make sure your gear is running V700XXUAMK7 Firmware, (If you are, you can skip this section.)

Note:If your in the USA and there is no update yet, just download the UK Version (BTU - United Kingdom)

Let update our Galaxy Gears firmware. (A must in you want to do anything below)
Note: This could wipe you data, save anything you need just incase.


Preparation:

  1. Download V700XXUAMK7 Firmware from here - Thanks to AdamLange
  2. Download Odin from here - Thanks to daerragh (Get version 3.09)


Installation:
  1. Put your Gear into Download Mode
    a. Press and hold the power button until the Restarting appears
    b. Repeatedly press the power button until the Select REBOOT MODE appears
    c. Press the power button once to move the selection to Download
    d. Press and hold the power button for about 3 sec.
    e. You are now in download mode.
  2. Connect your Gear to you PC. (Using the Cradle and Micro USB)
  3. Open Odin
  4. Click on the PDA Button
  5. Locate the V700XXUAMK7 Firmware and select it. (It should be a .md5 file, if it is zipped, then unzip it)
  6. Press Start
  7. Once it is completed it will reboot the gear.
Note: Let your gear sit for a bit as it updates everything. I might look like it is stuck on the Samsung logo, but you should see the word Samsung pulsating. That means its working. Should it take more than 5 mins, simply Press and hold the power button down until it resets.


Note: Should you get the dreaded screen of death, just flash the MK7 ROM back onto your gear and start all over.


Screen of Death (LOL)

Make sure the Gear is activated and connected to your Phone. (Samsung Manual)

How To:

Installing Null_ TWRP:

Installing Null_ TWRP: (Version as of this tutorial is Null_ 03 TWRP)
Thanks to fOmey for this Null_ TWRP

Installing Null_ TWRP:


Preparation:
  1. Download Null_ TWRP - fOmey
  2. READ THE NULL_ TWRP Original Post

Installation:
  1. Put your Gear into Download Mode
  2. Connect your Gear to you PC.
  3. Open Odin
  4. Click on the PDA Button
  5. Locate the Null_ TWRP file and select it. (It should be a .md5 file, if it is zipped, then unzip it)
  6. UNTICK THE AUTO REBOOT OPTION IN ODIN.
  7. Press Start
  8. Once it is completed it will reboot the gear.
Null Quote:
If you find the recovery is not sticking & your Gear wipes when attempting to access recovery after flashing, you must root your Gear prior to installing TWRP again & Run the following commands in ADB:

*NOTE* You will gave to accept a supersuser request popup when executing "SU" command

*NOTE 2* Probably a good idea to run this prior to first installation (To save time)
Code:
$ adb shell

$ su

# mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/mmcblk0p20 /system

# rm /system/recovery-from-boot.p
ADB stands for Android Debug Bridge

If needed "ADB" can be found here on xda - Thanks to shimp208

  2. Re Read Null_ Original Post. MAKE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND EVERYTHING
  3. Download Null_
  4. Connect the Gear to the PC.
  5. Open up Wondershare and select your Gear.

Bluetooth Internet Access

Bluetooth Internet Access
Thanks fOmey & sting0387 for the info

Note: Phone Must Have BT Tethering Option. Most USA Users don't have this option.
Note 2: Playstore / Google Account Manager / Google Map s- These will only work if you have native BT tethering. (Third party apps do not offer the same protocols as native BT Tether and therefore don't work.)
(Null_17 fixes this issue)

Bluetooth Internet Access:

Option 1) Phone must have BT Tethering Option.

Preparation:
  1. Turn On BT Tethering on your Phone. (System Settings >> Tethering and Hotspots >> Enable Bluetooth Tethering)

Activation:
  1. On the Gear go to Settings>>Bluetooth
  2. Click on the settings for the profile for your phone.
  3. Scroll down and if you have activated the option on your phone and it supports it, you will see an option to activate on the profile on your gear.
  4. Check the box Internet Access


Option 2) Use 3rd party apps (Such as PdaNet+ / PdaNet Tablet) (Must use Network Spoofer)

Preparation:
  1. On your Gear, Install PdaNet Tablet
  2. On your Phone, Install PdaNet+

Activation:
  1. On the Phone open PdaNet+
  2. Check the box next to Activate Bluetooth Service
  3. On the Gear open PdaNet Tablet
  4. Click onConfigure
  5. Click onAndroid (Bluetooth)
  6. Click onTap here to start scanning...
  7. Once you see your phone appear, Click on it
  8. Go back to the first screen of PdaNet Tablet
  9. Click on Connect (it might be hidden at the bottom of the screen, just a small part is showing, but you can still click on it)
  10. On the Attention screen scroll down and click on I trust this application then click on OK
  11. You should now be greeted with a PdaNet is connected! screen.
  12. Open your Gear Browser and you should see it connect to Google home page.

    Note: Should Google Play and such not work even though your browser works, DBL check that you have Network Spoofer enabled and using Spoof WIFI.





Option 1) Phone with native Bluetooth Internet Access Screenshots

Watch Styler OR UCCW? / Watch Styler:

Watch Styler OR UCCW? / Watch Styler
Thanks to almulder1092 for the info


Watch Styler OR UCCW?
This is a matter of opinion I like to use UCCW as it is more customizable. However if all your looking for is a Watch Face only, then my all means get watch styler. Both would be widgets to add to Nova home screens.

Need so Ideas, check out this thread - Thanks to Kakann for starting the thread


Watch Styler:

How to:
  1. On your Phone, Install Watch Styler through the Gear Manger >> Samsung Store. (You may need to hit accept on your Gear to install it)
  2. On your Phone, Open Watch Styler, select or create a new face.
  3. Apply the selected Watch face
  4. In Gear Manager goto >> Clocks
  5. Select WatchStyler
  6. Then select the settings icon.
  7. Select the Watch Face you want again
  8. Apply the theme. (The Applied theme should reflect the new selection
  9. On your Gear, On Nova desktop press and hold
  10. Select Widgets >> WatchStyler

  6. Once installed unplug your phone and plug in your Gear
  7. Click install again (This should install it to your gear)

Note: Now the best thing here to do is create the new widget on your phone first. (Much easier) then transfer it to your Gear. (But you can just make it on your gear if you want to, then there is no need to download it to your phone)

    • Now add and customize to what you like.
    • Once done press Save.
    • Select Make uzip (for sharing)
    • Name the Widget
    • Plug your Phone into the PC
    • In Wondershare click on your Phone then files
    • Click on your SDCard, and locate the uccwOutput folder. (you might have 2 SDcards, so check both)
    • Click on it, then select the Widget you created (.uzip)
    • Export the file to your computer
      .
  2. Connect your Gear to the PC
    • In Wondershare Select your Gear
    • Click on your SDCard
    • Create a folder called uccwOutput
    • select the new folder
    • Drag and drop the widget (uzip) file from your PC to Wondershare.
    • On your Gear open UCCW
    • Activate the soft buttons
    • Press and hold the return button (Long press activates the menu button)
    • Select Open >> Open uzip
    • Locate the Widget (uzip) you just transferred
    • Select it and open it.
    • Press the soft menu button again and select Save >> Save Skin
Note: Not all items in UCCW are compatible with the gear. Things like Weather, Location, Temperature, Forecast, Gmail, Alerts, do not work.

Installation of Widget.

  2. Select Widgets >> UCCW >> 4X4
  3. Select the New widget you just saved.

How to install APK’s to your gear. Without Wondershare

How to install APK’s to your gear Without Wondershare
Thanks to almulder1092 for the info


This is for anyone looking for an alternative way of getting apps onto the gear.

These instructions work for people who have a Windows/Mac/Linux.

  1. Download fastboot. - DropBox - Zippyshare
  2. Unzip fastboot the root of your drive (You can delete it later when done, or advanced users can unzip it anywhere)
  3. Make sure your Gear is in USB Debug mode
  4. If you’re using Mac or Linux, You can skip this step. If your using windows, make sure you have installed the Samsung USB Drivers.
  5. Plug your Gear into your PC
  6. Now open up a Command Prompt (Terminal window for Mac/Linux) (Google it if you’re unsure how)
    11txsly.jpg

    .
    Type in the following:
    For Windows:
    cd\
    1y8s46.jpg

    .
    cd fastboot

    For Mac:
    cd\
    cd fastboot
    chmod 755 *
    ./adb-mac devices​

    For Linux
    cd\
    cd fastboot
    chmod 755 *
    ./adb-linux devices​
  7. Look at your gear, there should be a prompt. Press OK. (If you have connect before using USB this might not appear on the gear, just go to the next step))
    If it does not come up, then we will need to kill the process adb.exe running and try launching it from the command prompt again.

    Windows:
    Open Task Manager, Locate adb.exe and end the task.​

    Mac/Linux:
    Type in the command:
    kill adb​
  8. Now type in the following:
    Windows:
    adb devices​

    Mac:
    ./adb-mac devices​

    Linux:
    ./adb-linux devices​
  9. Looking at the Command windows (Terminal window) You should see device. (If you do – GREAT, else go back and try again)
    30xj53b.jpg

    .
  10. Move you apk file you want to install to the fastboot directory
  11. Use the following command to install your apk file:
    Windows:
    adb install nameoffile.apk
    351y5mo.jpg
    .

    Mac:
    ./adb-mac install nameoffile.apk​

    Linux:
    ./adb-linux install nameoffile.apk​
  12. Once installed the app should appear on your gear under the apps section.

Full System UI? Get back DBL tap settings for quick Volume and Brightness

Full System UI? Get back DBL tap settings for quick Volume and Brightness
thanks to fOmey for the info.


If you have installed full system ui, then you might have noticed that a dbl finger dbl tap does not bring up you quick settings anymore. Not current;y there is no way to get that exact view back, as it has been replaced. fOmey has looked into extracting it out, but does not look like i can be done.

But never fear a solution is here.

Option 1)
Put Nova Launcher Prime on your gear so you have access to the Gestures and edit the dbl tap option

Option 2)
Create a shortcut.


What ever option you chose the result will be that same in the end.


How to:
  1. Be sure you have Xposed & GravityBox installed and Activated. (See post #8)
  2. Open up GravityBox
  3. Goto >> Statusbar Tweaks >> QuickSettings Managment >> Statusbar QuickSettings Tiles
  4. Then Select the following
    • Volume
    • Ringer Mode
    • Bluetooth
    • Brightness
    • Battery Status
    • And any other quick options you want.
  5. Now go back to your desktop
  6. press and hold to bring up options
  7. Select Nova Actions >> Expand Quick Settings
  8. You should now have an Icon on your desktop that when pressed will open up Quick Settings for you.

Note: If you have Nova Prime, and want to use a gesture, just select the gesture and then Select Nova Actions >> Expand Quick Settings

Note: You can go back into GraveBox and resort the tiles to your liking. (Along with many other options.

]NotiCounter Widget

NotiCounter Widget (Version as of this tutorial is v1.0)
Thanks to st-tps for creating it.


If your using Null_ and tired of not having a notification badge on your screen, this is the answer.
NotiCounter is just as the title suggests. Its a Widget that you can customize and have notification counts show on your gear screen. And it includes custom sounds.

Preparation.

  1. If you have a previous version be sure to uninstall it before installing the new version.
  2. Download NotiCounter Widget from here


Installation

  1. Install NotiCounterWidget
  2. Reboot Your Gear (Must Reboot after install)
  3. Once rebooted go into Gear Settings >> Sound >> Notifications
  4. Select NotiSilent (If it is not in your list, Did you reboot?) This is simply a blank sound file. this needs to be selected to avoid multiple notifications sounds (Note: Skip this step if you Don't plan to use the sound features in Noti.)
  5. Now to avoid the repeated notification that Noti has been granted SU permissions, lets disable that message.
  6. Open Super SU
  7. Press the # next to NotiCouonter Widget
  8. On the Notifications "Global Default" change that to read Disabled. This will stop the notifications from comming on everytime your screen turns on.
  9. Open NotiCounter Widget app
  10. Read the Pop up box.
  11. Wait for SU permissions to kick in and the give the app SU permissions.
    .
  12. Play Sound? Check this box if you want to have a sound play when a notification comes in. (Be sure you did step 4 if you select this)
    1. You can leave the sound file at default or Select a different one. (Click on Choose File)
    2. Once you Select Choose File you will be give a list of sounds that have been included with Noti app.
    3. Select any file and you will hear a preview of the sound file.
    4. If you want to use your own personal sound files, go up one directory and the select Notifications folder. (See previous tutorials for adding custom sound files)
    5. Once you have selected your sound file you want, then click Set
    .
  13. Custom Sounds? Check this box if you want to have custom sounds play according to the app .
    1. Select Add Apps
    2. You will be presented with a list of all apps that are set to send notifications to your gear.
    3. Select any app you want a custom sound for
    4. Select the sound file just as you could have above.
    5. Once Selected you will see a Toast message box appear at the bottom letting you know it has been set.
    6. Continue to add any other Custom Apps sounds you want to use.
    7. Once your done got back to main Noti Screen.
    8. If you made a mistake on one of the apps, select Edit List
    9. You will be presented with a list of all the apps selected. Press and hold to edit anyone of them
    10. You will have the option to Change, Abort, Delete.
    11. Once done go back to main Noti Screen
    .
  14. Launch Notifications app on tap? Just as it says, Do you want to open the notifications screen when taping on the widget?
  15. Text Size - you can change the text size to larger or small according to your needs
  16. Color - This will alow you to change the color of the text using the sliders as needed.
  17. Widget Background (Ellipse, Round, Transparent, Custom)
  18. Custom Background - Selecting this will allow you to have a custom background
  19. Select your background similar to how you selected a sound. when selecting a pic you will see a preview of it for a few seconds.
  20. Blank spot at 0 unread Notifications? Basically do you want to see a number 0 or nothing at all when there are no notifications?
  21. Power-saving Mode? Normal, Medium Saver, Power Saver. - Normal will give your a more stock feel for the Gear (I prefer Normal)
    • Normal - Checks for activity in the notifications app, if it´s running it does badge checks with a certain intervall.
    • Medium Saver - Checks for activity in the notifications app, if it´s running it does badge checks with a certain intervall. When Notifications hit 0 it stops the checks
    • Power Saver - Only checks Once upon screen On, then nothing.
  22. Restore all Data - This will remove the sound files that Nofi install. If you want to remove Noti you might want to press this button first.
  23. Now that you have your settings Press Save
  24. Now place the widget like you would any other widget.
  25. you will see two options for your widget. Normal and Bold. that is in reference to the Text number. (I prefer Bold)
  26. Check out your new Noti widget.

    [Tutorial] Null_/FreeFalling Theme/Dr Who Sound,Boot Theme / & More (Updated Jan 16)

    [Tutorial] Null_ TWRP / Null_ ROM / FreeFalling Theme / Dr Who Sound,Boot Theme / & More
    Created by almulder1092 @ xda-developers.com

    "Work In Progress, Need to add in Screenshots, And possibly more tutorials - Enjoy"

    No Support Via PM - Please stop with the PM. They will now be ignored!



    Well after creating my last tutorial, much has changed, wonderful new things have come about. So I thought it was time to create a new tutorial covering the new things.

    So after now I have read 1000+ of pages and posts, hopeful this will help cut down on your searches. BUT read the whole tutorial before you ask questions. There are fare to many people that ask questions that are usually covered in the OP (Original Post) of threads. Please be respectful of the Developers Time and not ask dumb questions that have the answer posted.

    Things you will need before you continue reading:
    • Ability to understand what you read
    • Time and Patients
    • How to use Google Search
    • Time and Patients
    • A brain
    • Ability be patient with all of us.
    • Give Credit where credit is due
    • Lastly Understand that Nobody is responsible for what you do to your gear, except you. And using the guide below will void your warranty

    Now that is covered lets continue.

    First get and install Wondershare MobileGo for Andoid this will make life easier. (Google it - Link removed by the request of xda)
    (If your to cheap to get this great software, why did you pay so much for a watch?)

    Alternative way to download apk's from Google Play without Wondershare Download Here
    (Note: I do not plan on doing a tutorial using this method as they show one on the site) (Thanks to fOmey for the info)

    (But I recommend you read everything)
    Note: null_ is prerooted (It roots your gear for you)

    (Direct connection works best.)

    Update your gear to V700XXUAMK7 Firmware:

    Update your gear to V700XXUAMK7 Firmware: (Skip if your already on MK7)
    Thanks to almulder1092 for the info


    Make sure your gear is running V700XXUAMK7 Firmware, (If you are, you can skip this section.)

    Note:If your in the USA and there is no update yet, just download the UK Version (BTU - United Kingdom)

    Let update our Galaxy Gears firmware. (A must in you want to do anything below)
    Note: This could wipe you data, save anything you need just incase.


    Preparation:

    1. Download V700XXUAMK7 Firmware from here - Thanks to AdamLange
    2. Download Odin from here - Thanks to daerragh (Get version 3.09)


    Installation:
    1. Put your Gear into Download Mode
      a. Press and hold the power button until the Restarting appears
      b. Repeatedly press the power button until the Select REBOOT MODE appears
      c. Press the power button once to move the selection to Download
      d. Press and hold the power button for about 3 sec.
      e. You are now in download mode.
    2. Connect your Gear to you PC. (Using the Cradle and Micro USB)
    3. Open Odin
    4. Click on the PDA Button
    5. Locate the V700XXUAMK7 Firmware and select it. (It should be a .md5 file, if it is zipped, then unzip it)
    6. Press Start
    7. Once it is completed it will reboot the gear.
    Note: Let your gear sit for a bit as it updates everything. I might look like it is stuck on the Samsung logo, but you should see the word Samsung pulsating. That means its working. Should it take more than 5 mins, simply Press and hold the power button down until it resets.


    Note: Should you get the dreaded screen of death, just flash the MK7 ROM back onto your gear and start all over.


    Screen of Death (LOL)
    29n8niw.jpg



    Make sure the Gear is activated and connected to your Phone. (Samsung Manual)

    Null Quote:
    If you find the recovery is not sticking & your Gear wipes when attempting to access recovery after flashing, you must root your Gear prior to installing TWRP again & Run the following commands in ADB:

    *NOTE* You will gave to accept a supersuser request popup when executing "SU" command

    *NOTE 2* Probably a good idea to run this prior to first installation (To save time)
    Code:
    $ adb shell
    
    $ su
    
    # mount -o rw,remount /dev/block/mmcblk0p20 /system
    
    # rm /system/recovery-from-boot.p
    ADB stands for Android Debug Bridge

    If needed "ADB" can be found here on xda - Thanks to shimp208
