of course it works i tested all options on my Gear Live Watch Yesterday before releasing it.

Was at work,,,,forgot to add the word HOW is it working for everyone !!

Worked like a charm...stock recovery is back...stock system installed,,,bootloader is relocked...this app is a life saver, just as it was on the LG G Watch :D

oh my fault now it works by allowing RSA key on my phone
now searching for a custom rom.....and how to start into twrp

There is only one custom rom out at the moment.. Also.. If you look on the play store there is an app or 2 that installs into the app drawer in the watch that gives you the option of booting into recovery... Bootloader.... Or a regular reboot

Yes but you need root to use the reboot to recovery and bootloader app and at this point we only have temp root. Unless you install the Ron that is out.

The only thing is, Adam mentioned using command line WITHIN twrp to remove the superuser after I rooted it. Since the watch doesnt have a keyboard, the only way I was able to accomplish this was to use the twrp built in file explorer, and delete the superuser.apk manually. The app still worked after that as well so I believe I still kept root after removing it

Worked fine for me on windows 8.1. It did freeze when I installed TWRP the first time, I rebooted and then was able to install TWRP with no problem. Thank you!!
