Using another method i came across i was able to pair with HTC one, answer calls and use watch styler

1. Install Galaxy Gear APK manually

2. When Galaxy Gear App opens it tries to install 0/19 files it will restart and say 0/18

3. When it says 0/18, locate "GEAR" folder on SDCARD, inside it will create another APK. Manually install this apk.

4. Close Gear App and Repeat Process, i got all the way down to 0/8 (Music service apk fails) but the Gear is still usable for calls.

Hi, with both devices paired, can you originate a call from the phone? In my case the call originated by the phone goes to the galaxy gear... Instead of staying in the phone.

so which ones work perfectly (after using it a few days after) and which ones need more work? so does this mean all android phones once they are 4.3 will work with the gear?

No. Notification handling requires the new changes in 4.3. Other parts depend on touchwiz. Not to say this won't change in the future

Actually not true. Have found multiple ROMs that gear.apk will install fully. The ROMs have been a mash of 4.1.2, 4.2.2, and 4.3.

So far, everything works except s-voice ( tried a 4.3 ROM with s-voice/touch-wiz built-in) and the notifications are also sporadic.

You can check my thread and findings,
