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.
