S10 Pro firmware (LEM14 and Brave Pro) Android 10 firmware – FAW style, unbranded.
Confirmed working on Brave Pro as well.
We have something to share with you and we hope you will like it
Sadly I have to say this now - If this is posted on any other site without using a referring link - we will withdraw this project immediately. This is because we have a partnership with Wiiteer and we respect their trust and support. There are a few sites out there that instead of posting a link to this post - would rather post the Firmware itself - giving no background information about how this project happened. This is not acceptable for our partners or us !
As some of you know – this forum has great support from the solution provider for these watches. We have been working together as friends for many years now. They are called Wiiteer from Shenzhen. They provide us with great firmware support and help us by introducing us to the various brands that you all know.
Over the years we have been listening to all the feedback from you guys for all this time. Things that don’t work and things you would like to see added etc.
Well, we have gained the trust of our friends and they have allowed us to work with them remotely, under license, using their Chinese based environment.
Together, we have produced a unique Android 10 “international” firmware that addresses your problems with the previous default apps.
Wiiteer, @none and I have spent a long time overcoming the remote working challenges to achieve this. If this firmware is well received, then it may be used for other models. If the brands are happy with your feedback. This also means that if any issues are found – they may be corrected to improve the experience.
There is also a BETA program now !! See the end of this post for more info
DISCCLAIMER – You use this firmware by choice.
You accept full responsibility if you damage your device by making a mistake . This will ONLY work on the LEM14 model at the moment. It may work on the Rogbid equivalent – but we have not tested it. It has been thoroughly tested on the LEM14. Do NOT try to flash the TWRP from stock on this!!
The Lemfo product team know we are posting this – but it is NOT official Lemfo firmware !!
So, stuff that has changed - this includes things like:
Stock Android File Manager – much more functional than the previous one – remember to enable internal storage view by using the 3 dot menu – top right in the app.
Google dialer phone app,
Google messages – including advanced functionality like Wi-Fi calling and instant messaging,
Google assistant – installed and now available by long press the back (lower) button.
Full permissions manager and granular control over permissions.
Any other apps that don’t need system permissions can be installed – by choice.
All previous custom apps are removed.
Task cleaner in the widget section never really worked in Android 10. The task cleaner is in the long press power menu.
To make sure play services app is up to date (after you have signed into Google) you can go to Settings/Apps and Notifications/All apps/Google Play Services and tap on the version details – it will take you to the update page.
All synchronization is working and can be easily controlled.
Then there are some functions added after many member requests:
double tap to wake
Adjustable font size (global)
Nav bar integration allowing “add or edit APNs” in a new square mode.
The layout can still be switched to full screen from the “long press power button menu.”
The Power Menu is now Long Press on an icon operated.
Other subtle features like the four-step brightness control in “quick settings” and long press on most of these “quick settings will take you to the related sub menus now.
Dark mode is fully implemented.
The weather app is working fine and utilizes Google Location Accuracy. The first-time weather is used it will need to obtain location – so GPS can be enabled to achieve this on first run. After this only Wi-Fi is needed because the Location Accuracy function caches your data.
All dependence on Chinese web services is removed to prevent issues with other locations worldwide.
The WiiWear app is still functional but the ability to disable it along with the BT broadcast traffic related to that app is now available in the Assistant app.
Apps like Watch Droid are fine and highly recommended.
Possibly one of the most important things to note is that now the firmware is operating more like Android intended – standby battery life can be up to 5-6 days. We get over 4 days even when Wi-Fi is enabled and google is signed in. Of course – this will vary in use cases, but it is a significant improvement.
Please feel free to try it out.
Mr Ticks has very kindly provided a video of the process today:
We worked with Wiitee to make a safer - easier option for you to use this.
BACKUP YOUR IMPORTANT DATA
You just copy the attached zip file to the watch storage and turn off network.
Then go to Settings, About Watch and choose wireless update.
Then long press power button and choose square screen mode and press the back button.
The Wireless update now shows in square mode.
In the top - right corner, click on the three little dots and choose Local Update.
Choose the zip file you copied across earlier and flash will begin.
It will take a while.
Once complete - please make a full factory reset as this is major update.
That’s it. No need to use flash tools.
Please give as much feedback as possible here and we will try to keep up
