15:05 Dadood hello
15:08 Dadood I need help with my motoactv 8GB
15:08 Dadood can someone please offer some suggestions?
15:11 Dadood I purchased this watch in April and used it about 5 times.  The watch went crazy after a workout and stopped working.
15:11 Dadood I sent it to Motorola, and they sent it back to me saying it had suffered “liquid abuse”.  WTF?  From sweat?
15:11 Dadood So much for ‘water –resistant’.  Needless to say, they sent it back unrepaired.
15:11 Dadood The device came back and it actually powered up.  However, it kept giving me an error message about the launcher and I could not got further.
15:11 Dadood I dug through Google and found some solutions to flash the boot.img, system.img, and preinstall.img.
15:11 Dadood Everything seems to work, except the wireless functions (Wifi,BT,FM, GPS).  I cannot even get past the screen ‘Add Bluetooth device’.
15:11 Dadood It will search for Wifi indefinitely and never get a GPS lock.
15:11 Dadood Did I do something wrong by flashing those images?  Or is this a hardware problem.
15:11 Dadood Any tips and/or suggestions are greatly appreciated!
15:11 Dadood Thanks!
16:12 CEnnis91 Dadood: water/sweat could've damaged the radios
16:12 CEnnis91 they might have an indicator inside the device that shows water got in it
16:15 Dadood yes, that's the verdict
16:15 Dadood so u think its dead in the water?
16:15 Dadood no pun intended
16:16 Dadood a hardware problem?
16:16 CEnnis91 maybe, cant be sure
16:16 CEnnis91 but if you flashed the stock images and they didn't work
16:16 Dadood could I have prematurely flashed the wrong .img?
16:16 CEnnis91 it doesn't look good
16:17 CEnnis91 nah, if you flashed the wrong image, it wouldn't boot
16:17 Dadood I downloaded the three stock images from a website
16:19 Dadood I noticed that there's a golf function now, it wasnt there before
16:19 Dadood was it on the new firmware?
16:33 CEnnis91 yes, they added that in a later firmware
16:33 CEnnis91 where did you get the imgs from
16:34 CEnnis91 http://forum.xda-developers.​com/showthread.php?t=1534073
16:34 Dadood yes
16:34 CEnnis91 Dadood: i promise those will work (if your hardware is not the issue) -- i made them
16:34 Dadood nice
16:35 Dadood is the 8GB-EU the european version?
16:35 CEnnis91 yea
16:35 CEnnis91 i guess worst case, you have a glorified mp3 player now... lol
16:35 Dadood yep
16:35 CEnnis91 or does the headset not work either
16:36 Dadood I even begged Motorola to fix and I will pay
16:36 Dadood and they said no
16:36 CEnnis91 wow
16:36 CEnnis91 Dadood: you can still root it and put some games on it if you wanted
16:36 Dadood they told me I had to get another one
16:36 CEnnis91 just have to use adb
16:36 Dadood haha....yea, small screen though
16:36 CEnnis91 Dadood: id imagine it's cheaper to just do a new one instead of fix it
16:37 Dadood well, I told them it wouldn't be another Motorola product
16:37 Dadood good idea, bad implementation
16:37 CEnnis91 yea wasn't the best
16:37 Dadood sports watch that can't handle a little sweat
16:37 Dadood haha
16:38 CEnnis91 hopefully google/apple will set the bar with better wearable tech
16:38 CEnnis91 im not really fond of glass or pebble
16:38 Dadood I plan to get a Garmin next
16:38 CEnnis91 what do you do?
16:38 CEnnis91 runner?
16:38 Dadood 310XT is even waterproof.... made for swimming too
16:38 CEnnis91 nice
16:38 Dadood runner, triathlete, marathons etc
16:39 Dadood how about u
16:40 Dadood damn, I can't even use my bt headphones!
16:41 Dadood i was thinkning of buying a lcd-damaged one for cheap on ebay
16:42 Dadood and swap the screen with the working guts
16:53 Dadood do you happen to know where I can get spare parts shown on www.cmw.me/?q=node/55
