First Tizen custom firmware ROM drops for the Samsung Galaxy Gear

It had to happen sooner or later, and I’m excited to see the first Tizen based Custom Rom / firmware for the Samsung Galaxy Gear to become available. XDA Developers member Skin1980 is the first with a custom ROM, and he hopes there are more to come
