I have just re installed Gear Manager onto my S3 4.3. No pairing needed, it looks like it has remembered my Gear.....
Update: 1:30pm pm Program overlays message "Installing addtional software" - looks like a patch has been released....
If this install works I'll let you know.
I just reinstalled GM 4 times. I'm having the less problems with 1.6
If you dont want to have Samsung Apps auto update just untick the box for that app. It says there is an update but it wont update it.
For some reason I dont see the Fit Manager anymore. What I did was install it then went to Titanium Backup and Froze it then I uninstalled it and now its not there. Should try that with v2.0 of GM and see if that stops it from updating as it is a different app to v1.6.
If you do the update like you said go have a look through your app manager and see all the double apps. its got a lot of those gold GM apps and a lot of the new white GM apps. NOt sure which it will use but its just been doubled so best is to go there and delete everything and start from scratch and only have 1 copy of all those apps. There will be lots of clashing apps. The worst install I had today was when I did that, I synced the Gear with GM 1.6 then upgraded to 2.0 and it kept crashing and had problems. I just deleted everything and installed 1.6 and now its all working again and no crashes except for trying to install Evernote, that never installs properly anymore, it says its installing for ages and just wont stop still I kill the SA app and it says its installed after that.
I will wait for v2.1 before I try again as this is buggy as hell. And I doubt they will update anything for the Gear1 as they will be concentrating on the Gear2 from now on. To $amsung the Gear one is dead from now on the second the Gear 2 gets released.
