First FULLY WORKING TWRP 3.0.2 recovery port for w616 based smartwatches (Finow X5+, Lemfo LEM5) with multi-language support.
*** WARNING ***
DO NOT APPLY any OTA update after you have flashed this recovery! This could (soft)brick your watch.
OTA updates require stock recovery.
On both X5+ and LEM the stock ROM includes a service which overwrite recovery partition at every reboot if it’s different from the stock.
To overcome this issue I included also a patched version of the boot.img, from the v161125 ROM for the X5+ and from the v170111 ROM for LEM5, which is exactly as the stock version but the recovery overwrite service is disabled.
The included scatter file is modified to load both the recovery and the boot image files; no changes to partitions layout are present.
* Newer firmwares *
If you have a newer firmware version, please read here the how-to for updating your boot.img after you successfully flash the TWRP recovery.
To install, use the usual procedure for flashing the recovery with SP Flash Tool. Don’t do it if you are not 101% sure of what you are doing.
Usual disclaimers apply *** I am not responsible for anyone’s issues here. Use this at your own risk !! ***
- Load the supplied scatter file in SP Flash Tool
- Make sure that no other other files is selected, ONLY boot and recovery must be selected, and press “download”.
- Power off the watch and then connect it to your PC and it will flash in few seconds.
After reboot, to access recovery use the “adb reboot recovery” command.
