So I picked up a Gear about a week ago to pair with my HTC One. I thought if I couldn't get it to work I could give it to my wife to use with her S4 or I would pick up a Samsung phone. I would like to say I am very new with flashing roms or doing anything of the sort. So I started with doing a lot of searching on this site and reading up with how to flash the rom on the Gear to something that I could pair with the HTC One. I installed TWRP and got that working correctly when I boot the Gear into Recovery mode. What took awhile was getting the Null_23 Rom onto the Gear where I could install it. After trying to do it with ABD (and failing) I found a video that used Wonder Share. I went with this system. I paired the device with my wife's Samsung so I could enable Debugging mode, was able to pair the Gear with WonderShare and push the Null 23 Rom to it.

Went into recover, did a full wipe, then installed the Null 23 rom, rebooted unit, it ask if I want to use Apex Launcher, Nova Launcher, and a 3rd option that I can not remember at the moment. But The Apex Launcher and Nova Launcher icons are in the programs menu, I can use them at any time and change the layout of the home screen.

So after installing this Rom I am able to pair the Gear with my HTC One. Now on the Gear, I can answer a phone call, the caller ID works, I can sent the call to my phone to answer but I can not dial out to make a call from the Gear,Contact do not show up, Notifications do not work for text messaging, The seconds on the clock are correct but it will not link up in the correct time zone for the hours. Calender does not work. I can connect the Gear to the internet with pdaNET and the web browser will work. The Google Play Store ask me to log into or make a new account, but when I try to do either it stops working.

I have starting working on the notifications first, but haven't been able to get them to work correctly.

A short list of what works
Answering Calls
Clock keeps times, but has wrong hour, this is probably something simple but I haven't looked into it yet
Camera takes Pictures
pdaNET
Web Browser

Items I would like to work
Notifications,
Calender sync
Contact sync
Dial out to make call

I think if I can get these few functions to work that more will fall in line.

Thank you for any help

For notifications you should go with ATN Notifier, there are many threads on this issue.

For dialing out, it worked for me after syncing my Google contacts. Have you logged into your Google account? That should help, I guess. Same with Calendar sync, but this will use Internet access to be up to date and therefore drains your battery pretty quick.

I would also recommend to install Gear Manager (1.6XX) to use gear apps like runtastic, turn by turn navigation and so on. Check out Brendans Folder!

Good luck!
