Verizon Samsung Galaxy S4 (MDK) running Hyperdrive Rom RLS 19
Gear Manager 18.104.22.168499
Gear Software Version V700XXECNF1
Watch Styler 1.2.14
I'm guessing there aren't too many people who are having these issues. I did some research online and it seems a lot of people have had this issue before but there aren't any solutions.
I can load the Watch Style app itself just fine and even load themes onto downloaded from gearfaces.com, however when I try to go in Gear Manager and change the clock, Watch Styler doe not show up. It feels almost as there is a missing link somewhere and possibly Watch Styler is not compatible with the latest version of Gear Manager for my phone/watch.
I flashed the latest NK1 Tizen rom and performed a factory reset after uninstalling and re-installing gear manager yet still Watch Styler does not show up. I emailed the developer of Watch Styler to see if they could help but this issue seems new to them and they were not able to replicate it on their end.
Any suggestions or guidance is greatly appreciated.
Hey thanks for your reply. I have tried this and it seems when I use an older version of Gear Manager I cannot run it without it updating to the latest. It seems the people who have this similar issue are running a custom rom and the latest version of Gear Manager and Watch Styler.
Just to update, I have found a solution to my problem. I flashed Tizenmod 3.0 yesterday and downloaded Watch Styler from the Samsung App Store. It still was not working so I uninstalled and downloaded/installed the Modded Watch Styler (post 3 of the Tizenmod 3.0 thread) and all is well now. I did a factory reset after I flashed and everything seems to be working.
Not only is Watch Styler now correctly working but I am getting superb battery life (at least I think I am). Watch has been off the charger since 9am and 2 hours later I'm still at 100%. Before it used to drop 5% each hour (this is with a Watch Styler theme applied). I will report back after day's end. I haven't tinkered with any other Tizenmod 3.0 options as I do not have the Tizen SDK but I will look into it.
My only gripe is that these features should work out of the box. Seems like a lot of work to get it working for something so little and the average consumer probably would have gave up or sold the device. Luckily for me that this is a hobby.
