Default Bluetooth internet tether with gear.

Anyone knows the easiest solution for BT tether to a rooted GN3? I don't want to put Safestrap on it right now. I don't want to pay $10 for Easy Tether which is the solution I found on the gear thread. Thx

The easiest and free way is to safestrap with xnote on rom slot 1 (leaving stock intact). BT tethering worked with my gear on Null 17. But the screen is so small typing was annoyingly difficult. BT tethering is also very slow. Downloading Tasker on the Gear play store took a long time. I got gmail installed but the small screen and slow tethering really made it impractical...after a day I went back to stock rom on the phone and flashed the gear back to stock (actually the leaked ML1 firmware, it added the alarm apk)...YMMV

I ended up getting it to work with EasyTether free version. I thought I could do some cool stuff with Tasker, but can't think of any.
