Just a quick (somewhat noob) enquiry about the Gear and what this ROM can do for it, as I'm thinking of picking up a Note3 + Gear from work (Vodafone), as the watch is free.
Firstly, I hate Touchwiz with a passion! I don't wish for anyone to read that in an angry way, but I'm really not fond of the colours, themeing, etc. of that particular UI. I much prefer vanilla Android and, as such, would look to root the Note3 and install CM or an equivalent on it.
Would I then lose any functionality of the Gear? Can the GearManager APK be installed on a non-TW ROM?
I'll need a bit of an idiot's guide for the whole thing, but it's nothing I can't research.
