The Samsung Gear S3 is rooted and in the future will have Android Wear 2.0, thanks to XDA

Samsung is a well-known brand in the world of smartphones for being the best selling of all Android manufacturers and for being Apple’s biggest rival (not only in sales but also when it comes to competing for patents).

Samsung Gear S3

However, the Korean manufacturer has never wagered 100% of its resources as mobile devices to Android.

While in the past he made eyes to Windows, from a time to here bets on Tizen, a mobile operating system that uses smartphones in some markets and smartwatches.

But surely more than one has dreamed of ever seeing a watch from the Samsung Gear family with Android Wear. Well, this can happen sooner than it seems thanks, as always, to XDA.

Thanks to Honestly Annoying, a senior member of XDA, the Samsung Gear S3 can be rooted and, in the future, Android Wear 2.0 can be installed on it.

A senior member of the XDA community known as Honestly Annoying has posted in a post from the well-known forum a link to various combinations of Samsung Gear S3 firmware in the Classic and Frontier versions that would give full read / write access, including Root access.

That is, in the first place, you could ‘rooter’ your Gear S3.

In addition to that, it has also posted links to the kernel source for both its processor, Exynos 7270, and Gear S3 in both versions.

After all this, Honestly, Annoying has said that the work to bring Android Wear 2.0 to this watch is going to be long and very hard, so any help will be well received. Would you dare install Android Wear on your S3 Gear in the future or would you rather Tizen?
