Paired perfectly with monx rom. I'm running Tizen gg btw.. Copy/paste galaxygearstub.apk to system/apps changed permissions to match other system apps. Then install gear manager and open and connect - gear manager will then install all the embedded apps one by one. Reboot, clear cache/dalvik if any fc's. You may need to be rooted to put gear manager stub app into the correct location.

I also had it paired prior to Tizen upgrade but was running custom f0mey rom on gear then.

Not sure about Gear 1. My Gear 2 is working fine with my Stock Rom.

Gear Manager for Gear 1 and Gear 2 is different. Be sure to install correct version.

And, I saw that Gear 1 firmware was updated to Tizen OS recently.

Make sure that the two are not already paired in android already. I had this problem then realized thet they were already paired and that was making the gear manager startup fail.

What did you do to get it working? I can't get messages or S-voice to work.
