Default [Q] Galaxy Gear 2 Disconnects With Rooted Verizon Samsung Galaxy S5

I'm new to these forums and new to rooting Android devices, but upon rooting my Verizon Samsung Galaxy S5 using geohot's method, my Samsung Galaxy Gear 2 disconnects when accepting or placing calls. It seems that it drops the phone audio connection while still retaining the data connection. I am able to still receive notifications on the device but I am unable to use the device as a Bluetooth headset. The only way I am able to recover from this issue is to perform a factory restore, which I can only assume unroots the phone in the process.

Has anyone else experienced this issue? Has anyone else been able to fix this? I can provide more information if requested, and any help would be greatly appreciated!

UPDATE: I would like to add that this is affecting all Bluetooth headset (phone audio) devices currently paired with my phone. For example, the Pioneer radio in my vehicle (AVIC-8000NEX) can no longer be used as a handsfree system unless I factory reset the phone.

That's really odd. I do not use any samsung gear, but I do use my phone in the car via bluetooth. I've never had an issue.
