(This is a cross post I from reddit.com/r/pebble
but no responses yet so I'm posting here as well)
So I use my PT as a daily driver and have been using my old OG as a shower timer & sleep tracker, got the screen tearing about a month or so ago, rec'd an RMA this week. Decided to update to the new firmware on it (my original OG still is on v2.9.1 - I never bothered to update it).
Initially the firmware upgrade did not work at all when paired to my Nexus 5x (would get to about 50% then fail, then go in the boot loop), when I paired it to my Nexus 5 it updated on the first try.
But now when I try to select watchfaces or apps from the PT app and get to sync on the Pebble, the face/app will load about 5% and will get "App install unsuccessful please try again" error on the PT app or generic "Failed" on the Pebble.
Another example in the PT app when browsing watchfaces in the PT app, if I click the green dot to load the face or tap on the settings and choose "set as active watchface" nothing will happen and no errors. It seems to be be pretty random if it will load or not.
I cannot even get some apps (like Pebble's own Timer or Stopwatch) to load at all.
Is this the way the new timeline firmware is supposed to work on the OG, or is something else going on? I don't think it's a BT issue as I'm not getting any disconnect errors, the watch is right next to the phone
TL;DR - rec'd replacement RMA OG, now the new firmware is being wonky.
