I have null_08 or 7 (whichever is newer.) and I think the problem is tryin to update your Gears firmware when It has a custom ROM or root. You would have to flash the Original software V7 software THEN do the update. it wont update on these modded watches. \

It might be too late for some of you but I would recommend installing the previous version of the gearmanager.apk

and if your ROM'd then go for ATN (allthenotifications) - its just an apk for your phone. no gear adjustments. You might also have to wait for the Original firmware files to come out so you can flash back (ha) to the (future) stock system and upgrade after once your "legit"

...i think

New apk works fine with old firmware. There is a thread here for stock firmware - you can either flash latest, or flash older and try get ota

This is an excellent update.

I was rooted running Null 7.

However, this update dispenses with having to use ATN and other 3rd party software.

It shows the message sender in the preview screen for Exchange messages
When you click into the emails it lists each email and each new mail has an N in a box next to it to show it is unread.

Looking forward to future updates.

I suppose what we should take from this is that Samsung are not idly sitting doing nothing, there's lot's going on in the background

I installed the update from the Samsung App Store (Verizon US), but I still do not have the "notification" button. Likewise, I am not able install the UK firmware.

Got the gear manager update this morning and just flashed the watch firmware with odin.

Getting the same thing with exchange email telling me to view it on the phone. Very strange... I know for a fact I have no pin requirement on my exchange account, since our admin changed it for me when I got the gear.

Gotta be another reason. Maybe someone could decompile it on the watch and see why it is doing this.

Haha, look like I'll be using my app Gear Getter, which sends things to the email notifications, to actually just send email notifications to the email notification. WUT?

Speaker on the gear seems to be louder now after the update....

Was hoping for some more SVoice actions but they are the same.

You should probably just update your watch with ODIN. It was pretty painless.

I get a message saying that it can't show the message for security reasons. Are you actually connected to exchange with your email app?

Just updated with Odin using the new firmware on a Verizon Note 3 USA Gear combo and everything is working good for me, save Exchange as everyone already knows is bonkers ATM.

For those that were lost like me initially,
Downloaded the Stock Firmware http://uploaded.net/file/njroq150
Downloaded this Odin http://www.4shared.com/rar/ZUA2B1FW/Odin307.html
Once Odin was downloaded I just extracted to Desktop
Once the firmware was downloaded I extracted the two files inside to the Odin folder I had just put on the Desktop

Put the Gear into Download mode (at the watch home screen, hold power until it says watch rebooting, rapid press the power button until you get to a menu with three options, press the power button three times quickly, should move selection to Download mode, hold power about 3 seconds and release, should be in download mode! )

Connect everything up via USB to PC (I am assuming everyone has the USB Drivers, if not http://hotfile.com/dl/247408965/8a67....27.0.exe.html)

Launch Odin
Odin should identify the watch as (0:[COMxx]).
Check PDA and press the button. Select the file V700XXUAMK7_V700OXAAMK7_HOME.tar.md5
Then Press Start
Sit back and wait, Gear should reboot and show the upgrading android animation and Odin will display PASS in green if all went well and its safe to exit and disconnect.

Hope this helps people that were confused like me.

I've updated my Gear Manager App, and now the notification section has moved, but I still don't have "other notifications" choice under notifications. My Gear itself says Software Version: V700XXUAMJ8. Note sure what to do here, how can I get this new updated.

BTW, my Gear is rooted and running the Nova Launcher.

I'm not rooted so I can't properly answer that. I would assume you will since it is technically manually flashing an OTA. And on my rooted devices I recall OTAs normally killing root. I'm not sure if the Gear Supports stuff like SuperSU that can keep root through updates.

I recall somewhere else I read people were having to wait until Null updated the ROM.
