TWRP Now Available for the LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live

Over the past week or so, we’ve talked quite a bit about the first two Android Wear-powered smartwatches, the LG G Watch and the Samsung Gear Live. Last night, we saw a great toolkit for G Watch owners. And just one day before, temp root was achieved on the Gear Live and its restore images were pulled.

Now, the development community has reached the next major milestone thanks to custom recoveries for both devices. The custom recoveries for both devices come in the form of the highly versatile and feature packed TWRP recovery. These images are thanks to TWRP project leader, XDA Senior Recognized Developer Dees_Troy. And as can be expected from official TWRP releases, the recovery images seem to work great for those who’ve flashed them.

Currently, there’s not terribly much that you can do once you have these images installed. There are no custom ROMs available yet for the Gear Live, and there is just one available for the G Watch in its Android Dev section. However, having TWRP lets you create Nandroid backups, as well as be ready to flash future development work when it appears.

If you own one of the first two Android Wear devices and would like to load TWRP, head over to the LG G Watch TWRP thread or the Samsung Gear Live TWRP thread.
