First Custom ROM Available for the Samsung Galaxy Gear Smartwatch

This past February, XDA opened a forum for smartwatches. These strange, yet amazing devices are watches that run Android. And let’s face it; it was only a matter of time before custom ROMs started appearing for them.

One of latest smartwatchers is the recently released . Now, XDA Senior Member fOmey created the first functional custom ROM for the device. It’s based on MK7 stock ROM, and has lots of customization. I must express my amusement when I saw this thread for the first time. Previously, I didn’t think that a watch could even have a custom ROM. XDA proved me wrong once again.

The ROM is rooted and deodexed, and contains several improvements to enhance the overall user experience. A lot of great work has been done to by the developer to make this ROM almost bug free. FOmey described the installation procedure and even made a video with instructions on how to enter download mode on the Galaxy Gear.

If you have a Samsung Galaxy Gear and want to try something new, you should visit the ROM thread and give this release a try.
