The LG G Watch is one of the first two devices hitting the market rocking the highly anticipated Android Wear OS. Naturally, many folks have snatched one up to get a taste of what Google’s take on wearables would be like. And so if you’re one of these people, and especially if you’re a new owner of the G Watch, what better way to kick things off than with LG G Watch Tool?
Developed by XDA Recognized Developer Tomsgt, LG G Watch Tool is a toolkit which prepares your G Watch for aftermarket development and modification with a host of useful functions. This includes:
- Unlocking the bootloader
- Relocking the bootloader
- Flashing stock recovery
- Flashing stock boot image
- Restoring the device if bricked
- Rooting the G watch
- Installing and testing necessary drivers
The toolkit is compatible with PCs running Windows, Linux and iOS, and Tomsgt has also provided a handy video tutorial for those who may be trying this out for the first time. Also, for those who may have a slow internet connection or very limited bandwidth, it should be noted that the toolkit is quite large in size, coming in at about 135 MB.
