First Tizen OS Custom ROM for the Samsung Galaxy Gear
At this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, alongside the premiere of many devices, Samsung introduced its first devices featuring the brand new mobile operating system Tizen OS. To date, it’s mainly been used in various smartwatches and wristbands, and eventually Samsung may use it as a replacement for Android.
For most of its life span, the Samsung Galaxy Gear was powered by Android. But since Samsung decide to replace the OS with Tizen, users have had no real choice and were forced to migrate to the new OS or stay on Android and eventually get left behind with regards to new features and apps. Additionally, there were no custom Tizen ROMs available for quite some time. Now the situation has changed, thanks to XDA Recognized Developer Skin1980, who created a first custom Tizen-based ROM for Samsung Galaxy Gear.
TizenMod is based on the last XXUCNF1 stock ROM, which has been rooted and prepared to replace the stock ROM. TizenMod should be more battery friendly, and it has also been themed to look a little like Android L.
To try this device on your device, you need to use the newest Odin and flash it as a regular update. TizenMod is considered as stable, so you should not be worried about its stability.
If you own the original Samsung Galaxy Gear and have decided to switch to Tizen, you may want to give TizenMod a try. You can find it by visiting the TizenMod development thread.

Once you get past the curved displays and wraparound Gorilla Glass 4, the most striking feature on these slabs is the...
