Guys, what app do you use on your phone for syncing? The apps from the qr code on the watch are crashing on a Samsung S6 stock ROM. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

InstallDriver.exe or/and something else?

Still can't see the com port... Tried on different computers Win7 based...

You will not see the com port. You have to go to the device manager and then you have to connect your watch for 1 or 2 seconds it will show up and then it will gone.
So you have to be fast or just change the start port in the flash tool and press the flash button if this dosen't work try a bigger number 8,16,32 etc

Does your watch auto reconnect bluetooth to your phone when go away and come back? When I charge my phone and get away to do something, when I comeback I forget to reconnect the watch... So, I miss notifications since I put the phone mute at work...

Hi! Has anyone tried to disassemble the firmware update files? Is it (easily :) ) possible to rebuild the firmware to add some enhancements? I would love a cheap and open smart watch, even if system resources are limited.

The update does contain a symbol file for the rom. What would be an appropriate (open source) tool chain to build custom firmware?

Thank you!

Ok guys I contact ulefone and they give me an answer.
They will release a new update maybe and they will remove altimeter barometer and things that don't work. I asked for this and they will fix it maybe with a new update firmware.
I also asked to add some more language support like greek characters. but they say the hardware is limited... so I ask them if they can release 2 roms supporting different languages...
We will see soon I hope...

ulefone email :
Hello,
1. To support your language, a language package is needed while there is not enough storage.
2. Yes, we'll offer a ROM with the 2 functions deleted.
3. As i mentioned before, this is a simple product and we don't have plan to further improve it. Now our engineering team is busy with a new product.
Have a nice day!

As my english is not perfect can anyone ask them to give as the source code or whatever is needed to unlock the firmware so we can make some customization?

    Thanks Vamire
    After installing both the 32bit and 64bit drivers in the Windows 7 folder (using administrator privileges) I finally got Device Manager to recognise the watch and show the COM port (mine was 7).
    Attempted to flash the device and after about 40 minutes, the software program reported "incorrect SML file for this phone. Stop now" ??
    I stopped the flash program and started the watch

    Success!!!! I too have stopwatch and power-save options.

    Seems the flash did work after all. Now we just need to discover how to fully realise the watch's potential with different icons, wallpapers, sounds etc.

    Thanks again..
