The manual installation procedure is very similar to that of Nexus devices. Of course we assume that you have all the original stock, with recovery (maximum root). If you have Windows, you will need the USB drivers of Google from Android SDK (on, Tucson Smartwatches you can download the latest version) and ADB. You can download the entire SDK, or this small installer, which is very convenient, which contains ADB, Fastboot and USB drivers.
- If you haven’t already done so, enable debugging on your watch. Go to settings, press seven times on the item Build number. It will appear the toast notification congratulations, now you’re a developer!
- Connect your clock to your PC using a micro USB cable.
- Open the command prompt and check that your clock is correctly configured and recognized by typing the command: adb devices. If everything goes as it should, read some numbers just below.
- Once the check is successful, restart your device in recovery. You can do this for example with the command: adb reboot recovery.
- Once in recovery, select Install update from ADB.
- From a command prompt on your PC, type the command adb sideload path/al/nomefile.zip
