Far from perfect but at least I can use my Neo now.

Fyi: I upgraded my Note 8 to 4.2.2 (KK) and while more things work now (svoice and weather for instance) I still cannot acess the samsung app store for gear 2 apps.....
Samsung, please let the Note 8 access the app store via gear manager...I am pretty sure it is just setting a flag...and I do not want to root it (company policy)!

Default KK on Note 8

fyi: I fully hard reset my device. Not much changed and I still do not have access to Gear apps in the Samsung app store, despite Samsung claiming I should. See link: http://www.samsung.com/us/mobile/wea...SM-R3810ZAAXAR
Here is the text from that Samsung website:
"Samsung Gear™ 2 and Gear 2 Neo are currently compatible with devices that meet the following criteria:
Android™ version 4.3, Jelly Bean or higher
WVGA or higher screen resolution
1.5GB or higher memory"
Note 8 with android 4.4.2 meets all criteria, but still.....
My only 2 options are now:
1) Wait until hopefully samsung will have mercy and enable Note 8
2) root and change the build ID
