If you have a Gear 2 you are probably getting a bit jealous of all these awesome Android Wear devices that have been coming out lately. You may be able to run Android Wear on your Galaxy Gear 2 soon. Developer "biktor_gj" is working hard at getting Android Wear ported to the Gear 2 and he is getting pretty close. The kernel is being worked on and a minimally working recovery is ready. Android actually boots as of now. Other than actually booting you can't really do much more with the port. ADB works and can be used to debug, audio services in the background and lock up the input so for now this is useless, however this is a huge step towards getting a working build of Android Wear on the device. Stay up to date on the progress of the build at the link below.
