It is now possible to hack WiFi support into your LG G Watch R



Developers developers developers developers! Steve Ballmer got it right — these guys are awesome. Once again, a stout mind from XDA has cooked up a way to improve a device, and this time it’s the LG G Watch R.

You can now enable that dormant WiFi radio inside the LG G Watch R if you’re hankering to use WiFi on the Android Wear watch, granted your watch has an unlocked and TWRP recovery. You should also make sure you are on Android Wear 5.1.1, build LDZ22D, because it hasn’t been tested in any other environment.

The usual warnings and red flags apply. You do this, and anything else outside of the scope of the device’s intended usage, on your own accord. That means you can’t blame anyone else if your smart watch decides to become sentient and refuse your every command (not that that would be devastating or anything, but definitely annoying). Knowing that, you can find download links and instructions right here.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.
