hi!

so since i tried nearly anything to get my HTC one m8 to work with my gear fit i decided to write this little tutorial, because i did not find any which fully worked.

the version of zwegnet was kind of working pretty good but i could not reject calls, or send a reject message.and media control was broken too.
the one from koalala gave me a crash every time someone called me and i did not get the calling notification.

then i read through this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/gea...r-fit-samsung-devices-lollipop-t3004234/page5

and on page 4 somebody started talking about a htc one m8. and that was pretty much my salvation!

It is version 1.98 of GFM but it works like butter!
Please test it with other phones running Lollipop and lets see if it works, many guys in this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/gear-fit/general/1-117-0306-gear-fit-manager-samsung-t3077473 reported the same issues as i had and now im VERY FINE

WHAT YOU have to do

1. update your samsung gear fit to the LATEST version ( R350XXU0BNG2) with ODIN ( not with a SAMSUNG Galaxy S5 because youll get a different version) FOLLOW THESE STEPS : http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2759697
2. Take bronxgsi 1.98 version ( THANK YOU BRONXGSI!!) http://forum.xda-developers.com/attachment.php?attachmentid=3154622&d=1423331069
3. UNINSTALL your old version( if you have one) and INSTALL THE APK
4. The rest should be clear, connect to your gear fit, enable notifications in gear fit manager and in your android phone, settings -> notifications-> notification access-> gear fit manager has to be marked!

Now everything should work perfectly! of course anything touchwiz related is not working and some guys say app connect is not working, anyway i am not using such thing.

A BIG THANK YOU goes to :

bronxgsi he baked this version of gear fit manager!

Everything is working great with my xperia z3 compact and lollipop 5.0.2. Call notification and other app notifications.
I just downgraded my gear fit firmware from R350XXU0BOA2 to R350XXU0BNG2.

Thanks :D

How to get it working?

I have Samsung Galaxy SIII (I9300) - Android 5.1.0 but I think that this solution may work for anyone, not only SGS III users (with custom rom).

If you did everythink as well as in the manual and your Gear Fit Manager crashes when it try to connect with your smart brand, you have to do only one thing: edit your build.prop.
Change "ro.product.manufacturer=..." to "ro.product.manufacturer=HTC", than reboot your phone and its done. You have working Gear Fit Manager with non-samsung device (or samsung device with custom rom) on Lollipop.
This idea is not from my head. I read it somewhere here on xda, but I think that its better to have this instructions on this page. Hope it will help you and sorry for my bad english.

2 questions: will this same method work for the Samsung Gear 2 and secondly, do I have to be rooted to do this? I already had my Gear 2 connected to my HTC One M8, but as you all know, once it updated to lollipop, it stopped behaving correctly. Thanks in advance.

HTC One M8

Hi
I follwed the steps below, managed to upgrade the firmware (R350OXA0BNG2) using ODIN and that seemed to work fine. Only when I install the apk file do I come across a snag.
1.78 installs OK but crashes when it opens
1.86 does not install
1.98 does not install
I have tried installing them in order but same result
Anyone got any ideas?

    Huuum....
    If you change language then reboot gear fit, Does it stays polish? If yes, good. If no, problem on gear fit, So reinstall it.
    Otherwise, reinstall your phone + geat fit. Ad new installation, it should stay configured well.

    Also, where is your app coming from? Official from googe play?

    open fit id official from play store. I change system on gear fit but is the same all time.
    but i check restart and reset gear fit with polish
