[Update: Gear Live (sprat) Too] TWRP Recovery Now Available For The LG G Watch (dory): Phenomenal Flashing Power, Itty Bitty Screen Space

Big things are happening for the smallest of Android devices. Over the last month, we've seen several attempts to extend the capabilities of Android Wear, some have worked out, while others haven't fared so well.
