I have managed to root the LEM8 and port a TWRP into the LEM8’s recovery.img
I used Carliv’s Android Image Kitchen for Windows to port the TWRP from the LEMFO LEMX.
The LEMX TWRP was created by iscle and is posted at:
I used an Android Mobile Phone and Magisk Manager to patch the stock boot.img to give root
The root method can be found here: /thread/3259/root-lemfo-lem8-watches
I then used the SP Flash Tool to flash the TWRP recovery.img and the patched boot.img into my LEM8.
My LEM8 has the Z29-LEM8-V1.3 ROM installed. I downloaded it from here: /thread/2937/lemfo-lem8-z29-m6739-16gb
NOTE: the header states that it is the Update v1.2 but it is actually Update v1.3
When I rebooted the watch, it went straight into the normal face mode (no TWRP).
So, I used adb reboot recovery to get into TWRP and was successful.
I also downloaded and installed RootChecker by joeykrim and Reboot by Petrus from the Play Store to check if I had root and to boot into recovery.
I have uploaded the following files and folders to Mega:
Folder – contains SP Flash Tool
Files – boot.img – patched with Magisk Manager to give root
recovery.img – the TWRP img file
MT6739_Android_scatter.txt for SP Flash Tool
The download is given below.
• Turn off watch
• Place it on the charging plate with USB NOT connected to your PC
• Download and unzip LEM8 V1.3 TWRP ROOT.zip from Mega
• Locate and start SP Flash Tool
• Locate and load MT6739_Android_scatter.txt into the flash tool
• Click on download
• Insert the USB cable into your PC
• The bottom window will flash a few times and a tick will come up to indicate success.
Note: If you want to go back to stock, use the stock recovery.img and boot.img and flash as above. By only flashing the boot and recovery you should not lose any settings or apps etc.
