Last week the first Tizen custom ROM dropped for the Samsung Galaxy Gear. Today we have got root access for the Samsung Gear 2 / Gear 2 via the same developer Skin1980
The ROM (firmware) is built on the official XXUCNF1 ROM, but also include root capability and a few other features that make the smartwatch better on battery. The release has been named as TizenMod 3, and now you DON'T REQUIRE A COMPATIBLE SAMSUNG SMARTPHONE TO INSTALL AN APPLICATION.
TizenMod 3.0 Features
Based on the last NE5 Firmware
Battery saving script
Removed camera sounds
Added Android L fonts
Added the support for custom icon theme
Added the support for custom fonts, ringtones, alarms etc.
Added the support for set the max cpu freq and governor ( don't use for now... i need to change the script that control the clock speed)
...but the most important thing
Bypassed Samsung protection! By now, all the people that haven't a compatible phone or simply a not Samsung phone, can install every app. Just put the apk on your phone and install it manually. In 3rd post i will explain how to MOD the original apks.
HOW TO INSTALL
IMPORTANT: Update your gear to the NE5 FW before flash!
