So how do you do this? Where do you start? Well, with a sealed PineTime, your only easy option is via Over The Air (OTA) Device Firmware Update (DFU), which is done via Bluetooth. There are a couple of different ways and apps you can use to do this. If you have an Android device, you can use [https://f-droid.org/en/packages/nodomain.freeyourgadget.gadgetbridge/ Gadgetbridge] or [https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=no.nordicsemi.android.mcp NRFConnect]. Otherwise, if your laptop or desktop computer has bluetooth and runs Linux, you can use [https://github.com/alexr4535/siglo Siglo]. You can also use [https://github.com/alexr4535/siglo Siglo] on your Pinebook Pro or Pinephone if you happen to have those devices.

The reason for installing the updates in the the specified order is because newer versions of InfiniTime have a more robust bluetooth update process, and since we're updating everything over Bluetooth, the less retries and failures from that you have the better. It will still sometimes disconnect mid update, meaning you'll need to try again, and possibly restart the watch a few times as well. And since the recovery firmware is new to the 1.0.0 version of the bootloader, it's best to update that last.
