Samsung Gear S3: Porting to Android Wear is now possible
Samsung Gear S3 Smartwatches are also equipped with the same Tizen OS. It is said that Tizen OS is way ahead of Android Wear. Now a thread in an XDA developer’s forum which got updated recently speaks about an initial step towards porting Android Wear to Samsung Gear S3.
This sounds motivating. Yes, now this is made possible by using the internal firmware of Samsung Gear S3. This firmware is mainly used to reset the device, so one can gain full read/write access to the smartwatch including its root access.
Samsung Gear S3 News: Tizen is said To be riddled with Security Holes
In this forum, a developer has attached the source files for both the Exynos 7270 CPU which is used by Gear S3 and also an internal firmware.
For now, this experiment is still in the initial stage, so it might take some more time until someone pops up with his android Wear prepared Gear S3 online.
Since TizenOS provides almost all features present in Android Wear, it I s not sure how people will believe this new trick of modifying the firmware.
