Use any version of Odin to install it. Put the Gear in download mode by long pressing the power button until it says "rebooting" and then press it again a couple of times until the download menu comes up. Select "download mode" by pressing the button to highlight it. Long press the button to select it. With the Gear in download mode, connect it to your PC and open Odin. Take the .MD5 file you extracted from the downloaded MK7 .zip and put it in "PDA" in Odin and then click start. You should be done in about 5 minutes and your Gear will restart. When it does, unplug it from the USB cable. There's no downside to using another region's f/w on your Gear and the update process doesn't wipe your Gear's data or settings. I don't think Gear's are different h/w wise regionally so you can repeat the above process when an update gets pushed, even if it's for another region, to always keep your Gear on the latest f/w.

In addition to the notification stuff, Samsung's added the ability to "go to the last page" under "Motion" so when you bring your wrist up it returns to what you're doing rather than defaulting to the home page (clock). You can also customize the S Reply messages you can send when you're on a call or responding to a text.

The Gear feels snappier after the update.

I had that feature in the previous firmware It's not new to this but if you guys in the US are two behind then you might not have had this yet.

It seems they always forget about the US. I just talked and samsung and they wont even say if we are getting an update.

Would it matter if my phone was rooted with custom recovery? I won't get the update will I? Would I just have to Odin it?

Your not updating the ROM on your Phone, Just the Gear APP, and then Updating the ROM on the Gear. The app should auto update if not uninstall and download the new gear manager.apk and install, then download then new gear rom and update via odin.

I have Null custom rom running on my gear....I did get the update through gear manager though....so now I'm wondering if I should reset gear to custom or not. I also can't connect to wondershare (I believe that's what it is called) to side load apps

You have two options, load the new rom to replace the custom null and then install the null back ontop of the new rom, or wait until null releases the new version.
