Prompt Little help with the gear manager

Now before anyone jumps down my throat I've googled the hell out of my question and i cant find the solution to it.

I have a moto droid maxx this is my work phone so rooting or anything like that is not an option. The issue is after I upgraded to the latest version of android on my phone 4.4.4, gear manager stopped working. now my gear is rooted and running null_ and i had gear manager running with ATN on the previous version of android for my phone i believe i was using GM 1.6.something and after the last android update it stopped working it and ATN, so for a while now Ive been using the gear sms server and client app i found but i miss being able to use the other things that gear manager aloud me to do. so my question to anyone that can figure it out, is what do i need to do to get this functionality back? now im no noob to this kind of stuff Ive just hit a brick wall and cant seem to get anything to work now. and a little info i forgot is gm stopped working after the update so i uninstalled to do a reinstall and now it wont load up says install failed. now i went though the whole proses of tearing down gm and installing all the apps and gm addon that had it working before like in the nexus how to. and that used to work but not now. so i am at a loss... as much as i like my gear this is proving to be a head ache. and i know i will be switching to moto 360 when it finally comes out. but i hate owning useless tech. so any advice or links would be very much appreciated.

Hey. One thing you can do is put the Gear over to Tizen and just install the Gear Manager like usual. I had that setup working fine on my G2 unrooted and the majority of things worked fine. Never had a connection problem, just weather and s-voice didn't work.
Try it and see. If not, follow the guide to go back to Android and do everything from scratch. Good luck.

Nope. I just made sure that I uninstalled every Gear Manager component, reset the Gear(in Tizen), downloaded the latest Gear Manager and started the sync. I can't see what difference there'd be between Moto and LG in the process. That's all I ever did with my Gear. I never had Android on it so I don't know if there's a different way of doing things.
Good luck
