Samsung Galaxy Gear Toolkit Handles All Your Gear-Related Flashing Tasks

The smartwatch market is growing rapidly. At this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Samsung introduced three new smartwatches ready to be paired with Galaxy devices. But Tizen is no fun, as developers haven’t yet given it much attention. The company’s previous smartwatch, the Galaxy Gear, has already received love thanks to a custom ROM and kernel.

Now, Galaxy Gear users can easily root, restore, and more thanks to a toolkit by XDA Retired Senior Moderator mskip. Android Toolkit for Gear is a complete solution for Windows users, as it can easily install drivers, download stock images, root the device, flash a recovery, show an ADB log, pull SD card contents, backup the device, and much more. The complete list of features is quite long, and can be viewed in its release thread.

With this tool, a Samsung Galaxy Gear owner is essentially ready for anything. If you run Windows and own a Gear smartwatch, visit the utility thread to get the most out of your device.
