Owners of the LG G Watch R who are willing to do some hacking work on the device now have an option available to enable the WiFi chip on the device. User Tasssadar on the XDA site figured out how to get the needed drivers off an LG Watch Urbane, with the help of intersectRaven, in order to make this possible.
The files needed to make everything work have been put together as a flashable ZIP for G Watch R owners who are willing to give it a go. Currently the solution has only been tested on devices running the 5.1.1 Android update. Users will also need TWRP installed as a custom recovery and an unlocked bootloader.
Tasssadar does note that this solution breaks over-the-air updates, so owners will have to be prepared to restore to a stock image when the next Android update rolls out if they want to get it OTA. In addition, although most people think LG did not enable WiFi on the G Watch R as a way to push buyers to the Watch Urbane, there is a possibility that some actual hardware issue exists and this could cause permanent hardware damage.
If you have a G Watch R and want to give this a try, just hit the source link below for links to the ZIP file and some kernels that will be needed.
