Q: Does this app support the null_ rom?
A: Yes, though this is only possible thanks to fOmey for his help testing.
Q: Does this app require root/null_ to work?
A: No, there is no special requirement for this app.
Q: How do I turn on "Enable Access" in Tasker?
A: Open Tasker and press the Menu Button. Go to Preferences, then the UI tab. Check the box that says "External Access". Make sure to close Tasker so that the settings are saved.
Q: How do I enable "Unknown Sources" on my Gear?
A: Open the Gear Manager and tap on Settings. Scroll the the bottom (under Security) and make sure the box "Unknown Sources" is checked.
Q: I can't get X to work in Tasker. / How do I do X with TasGear?
A: There are plenty of tutorials around for Tasker, but unless it is a specific problem with TasGear then I ask that you refrain from posting your question here. This
thread was set up to give examples of how Tasker/TasGear can be used.
Q: I can't see the notification on my phone/tablet! / I can't see the TasGear app on my Gear!
A: Make sure you install the app on your phone/tablet and not
your Gear. You don't need to side load this app
Q: I have X problem, how do I fix it?
A: Make sure you have correctly installed the app by following the installation instructions and the notification on your phone/tablet says connected. Try restarting both devices and checking External Access is enabled in Tasker.
Q: Can I start a task on the Gear by sending a message from the host?
A: No. I am not running null on my Gear and therefore have no way to test Tasker interaction on the Gear. If this changes I'll let you know!
Q: Can I install TasGear on a non-Samsung device?
A: Maybe! You will need to install Gear Manager first! You can follow this
tutorial to get it set up. Skip steps 10 to 12, the notification app no longer exists. This
is a good alternative. Thanks to @technologicrepair
for the research in to this.
Q: Can TasGear create widgets on the Gear?
A: No. The stock version of the Gear's firmware does not support widgets. If you have null rom you can use Tasker to pass information through TasGear to your phone though. See the examples thread to find out how to do this.
