    How to root Galaxy Gear Smartwatch

    Earlier we posted a Guide showing installing Custom ROM on Galaxy Gear. Since then i received several PMs asking me how do we actually root this smartwatch. Hence, thought to share the Rooting guide today. This will allow you to get the Administrative Acess to the root of the system using which you can install several apps directly on your Watch .So where we go.


    Before we start the rooting process, there is also some perquisites like all other Android devices use to have. So, make sure you get ready with all these stuffs before starting the rooting process.

    • Make sure your Galaxy Gear is charged about 60%, as it should not get drained during the process.
    • Now you need to Enable USB Debugging. you can do this by going to Gear's Settings > Gear Info > and Tap Software Version about ten times to enable the Developers Option. Now enable USB Debug from developers options.
    • Now Download Galaxy Gear USB Drivers from here and install them on your PC.
    • Download Cydia Impactor and save it on your desktop.
    • Download Wondershare MobileGo and save it on your desktop.

    Rooting Galaxy Gear:

    • First of all connect your Galaxy Gear to the computer where you installed USB Drivers, and let the system detects and install drivers for your Smartwatch.
    • Now extract the downloaded Cydia Impactor in a new folder on your desktop.
    • Run Impactor, being your Gear still connected to the PC.
    • Now you should see field where it should be written the following:
      # drop SuperSU su to /system/xbin/su
    • If it is written the same as above, directly click on Start. Or, you will have to manually write it and click Start.
    • If you get any message on your PC or Galaxy Gear, Dont Panic, simply select 'Always Allow' and 'OK'
    • It should take just few seconds to complete the process.
    • Now, dont disconnect the cable, run Wondershare app on your computer and click on Google Play Apps.
    • Now search for SuperSU and click Install. This will install SuperSU on your Galaxy Gear
    • Once done, search an Open SuperSU on your the watch and allow it to update the SU Binary.

    That's it. Your Galaxy Gear is now fully rooted and you have complete Administrative access to the root of operating system. Enjoy.
