Default S4 Zoom + Galaxy Gear

My sister currently owns the S4 zoom and would like to use the Galaxy Gear with it but it is still running Android 4.2.2. I'm looking to root the Zoom to Android 4.3, preferably a slim rom, so that it can be compatible with the Galaxy Gear since Samsung has not released an official update or estimated time frame either. I've been researching how to root the Zoom as well as what roms are currently available and apparently support for the Zoom is very little.

Has anyone tried a rom that allows compatibility with the Zoom yet?

the s4 zoom is a phone with no market or future.
there are no developers to work on that phone.

I think it's a shame that the zoom has no future as it's a great device, albeit quite niche. Here's hoping that Samsung do eventually update to 4.3 so it will be compatible with the gear.

I agree it is quite a shame, I have the S4 and use the Gear and my sister really wants to use the Gear with her Zoom. I think the Zoom is a awesome device. It's designed for a very niche market and it seems like that market is being neglected. Samsung did mention when 4.3 was released that it would be coming to many of the Galaxy devices and the Zoom was included in that list, but there's no info on when to expect it.

With kitkat confirmed for the Zoom C105 does that mean Galaxy Gear will now work with the Zoom S4?

I see the latest firmware 4.2.2 has gear manager app on the system. Does this not work then?
