Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it.

Optimus 4X Bootloader Dump–Let the Unlock Projects Begin
Obtaining root is definitely among the top priorities of developers when a phone is released. Root and custom recovery is about as far as most users go, as once they get the ability to flash ROMs and other mods, they don’t need much more. However, many who wish to dig deeper require an unlocked bootloader. The LG Optimus 4X HD has already attained root. Now devs are looking to unlock the bootloader using a recently released bootloader dump.
XDA Senior Member wkpark has uploaded a bootloader dump from a Korean post in another Android hacker forum. It was ripped from the stock KDZ file, and is ready for devs to play with. In addition to the bootloader dump, wkpark has added a couple of other useful items, including:
●dzextract script added
●flash.bct.encrypt file added
Discussion has already begun on the possible ways to unlock the bootloader. Several members have already dug in and started looking around for possible unlock methods or exploits. There isn’t anything successful yet, but brainstorming is always important. That’s always the process, though. It’s unclear whether the LG Optimus 4X HD will ever get the bootloader unlocked. However, if you’d like to contribute, be sure to visit the original thread.
