I was hoping to use it to do something in Tasker when the Gear Watch is close, and do something else when the Gear Watch is far, but still connected.

Hmmm I had it ! For the life of me cant remember what it is tho.. ill have a look for you now.



EDIT:

This appears to be the broadcasts (unconfirmed tho!)

android.accessory.device.action.ATTACHED
android.accessory.device.action.DETACHED



Although if you want to just detect if the gear is connected, the easier way to do it is to check the bluetooth status... State -> Net -> Bluetooth status.. I like to use the MAC address as the identifier.

Would this broadcast exist on both the Phone and the Gear?

Trying this in Tasker on the Phone yields no results.
Is there a way to detect the Gear's Close Proximity on the Phone using Tasker Intent?

Only way to detect such thing is if its connected via bluetooth.. This is the best and most accurate method.

The advantage of the proximity detection is that it's closer. The Bluetooth LE can remain connected for 10s of meters. The proximity detection can trigger once your GEAR is slightly away from the Phone.

The use case of this is to App Lock in Tasker.

So that your sensitive apps are locked when you pass over phone over to your friend to make a call.

How?

Tizen isn't out for Gear 1
Gear 2 isn't out

---------- Post added at 12:59 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:47 PM ----------

I think this guy has no idea what he's talking about.

Null is a ROM to unlock the ability to run Android Apps and unlock access to System Menus on the Android OS.

What the F!#% would "Null for Tizen" even mean?

That's like saying, "Can I install a Keyless entry system on my Motorcycle?"

Getting error during install of Null 23 assert failed....
I've followed all of the directions to install the custom Null 23 rom on my new Gear. During the install I receive the following error message when trying write the new kernel.

assert failed : write_raw_image("/tmp/boot.img"."/dev/block/mmcblk0p5")

The device ends up stuck at the "Download" screen with the green android. I've managed to flash stock rom back to the Gear using Odin, but each time I try to install the Null rom I end up with the same error and same results. Please, someone help.

Much appreciated.

A quick and hopefully some simple questions.
I removed all addition screens except the home screen so I need to know how to add another one.

Also how do I remove the shortcuts at the bottom so I can display the watches correctly. Also I have the notifications at the top that I also want to remove.

Again thanks

Check settings of launcher (apex or nova)

I have done everything in the threads and have had success all the way through, until after I flash Null_23. Everything goes through as it should but when I tell it to reboot after successfully completing the flash, I get the original gear screen asking to pair with a Samsung phone?

Thanks

Just try pairing manually via gear manger

Can we expect Android 4.4 _null for our devices? If yes you maybe could make a guess for how much tea I should buy... If you know what I mean ^^

Thx in advance for your support

Cheers
