After seeing so many people get hung up on complicated guides to manually update the LG G Watch R to 5.0.1, I thought I’d write the simple guide during my next bout of insomnia. So, no sleep tonight for me means a new guide for you. It’s very simple, with only four steps: 1) download the OTA update, 2) flash the 5.0.1 recovery, 3) prepare to sideload, and 4) sideload.

Here’s how to sideload the update without ROOT.

  1. Enter Bootloader (swipe top left-bottom right as soon as the LG logo pops up on boot)
  2. Unlock bootloader (fastboot oem unlock) and boot the watch normally once
  3. Turn off and re-enter bootloader
  4. Flash 5.0.1 Stock Recovery (fastboot flash recovery filename.img)
  5. Enter recovery and ADB sideload the update (tap the android, select install update from ADB and enter adb sideload filename.zip)
  6. Done!

After some experimentation I cleaned up these instructions a little bit and confirmed this method works for me. Here’s what I did, real easy:

How to flash / unroot LG G Watch R

  1. Download Stock Boot, Recovery and System.img http://www.lg-phones.org/stock-boot-recovery-and-system-img-for-lg-g-watch-r.html
  2. Replace boot.img, recovery.img and system.img with their respective filenames
  3. Attach phone to computer, open terminal and issue:
    • fastboot flash boot boot.img
    • fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    • fastboot flash system system.img
  4. Reboot and enjoy
