From v1.7 onwards, GM has 2 version numbers in the same apk as it includes the files to connect both original Gear and Gear 2. v2 is also used if running Tizen on original Gear

Download
You can download the installer (and secondary apks) here:
https://www.mediafire.com/folder/e7h23e12rzesi/Gear_Manager


v2.2.15022599 includes all the apks that GearManger attempts to download. I'd suggest installing all of these before installing main GearManager apk. You'll notice there are 2 plugin apks. Gear Plugin is for newer devices (Gear 2/Neo), Gear1 Plugin for original Galaxy Gear

Notable changes
1.5.111304
Expanded notifications
Exchange Email blocked in US
1.5.120601
Exchange Email unblocked in US

v1.5.121601
Very buggy - suggest not installing

v1.6.111801
Leak. Support for ML1. Exchange email body blocked gm1.6 plus ml1

v1.6.131003
Leak. Support for NA3. Support for KitKat

v1.7.031004
Leak. From Galaxy S5 stock rom

Other devices
As of yet, it is not possible to get Gear working fully without a Samsung device running 4.3 TouchWiz rom
To install on other devices, make sure you put GearMangerStub.apk in system/app. Then you can install GearManager and the secondary apps (music and weather won't install without dedicated samsung apps also on your device). You will not get notifications and it is very limited, but it connects
Suspect the issue is related to tight integration with TouchWiz framework and Samsung apps

Can't parse the package in the link and do not have an update via gear manager. Guess I will have to wait.

Though it does not sound like much has changed...

Does anyone have any ideas what may be stopping me from installing that app? Has anyone else had trouble with the new one?

Hi !

I managed to install Gear Manager on LG G2 CM10.2, i have installed extracted APKs except music & weather, but i'm blocked at installation 0/3 using NFC.

At this point i didn't install this : http://www.mediafire.com/folder/iej2xisyax63c/GearApp_GalaxyS4(Android43)_All
that are discuss here : http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2500999

Installs fine on N5 (apart from music and weather - however you can get the Samsung apks for this and it works somethings). The key is gearmanagerstub in system/app
Then install gear manager
Then install other apks
Then connect either by nfc or manually
If you get to restore page, you should be able to choose reset
 
this version doesnt work with the latest leaked rom. I have this rom installed and the latest GM version out off the samsung app but i dont receive any exchange mails on my device. with the previous version of gm i could only see the receiver and not the mail it self because of a security issue?

    Gear Manager latest version working w/ Lollipop CM12S OnePlus One (Gear 1)

    I finally made the Gear Manager (latest version) working with my non-touchwiz device, running Lollipop 5.0.1 CM12S (Oneplus One). Using my Gear 1 (with TizenMOD) I didn't realize that upgrading from KitKat to Lollipop will turn my Gear 1 into a Dumbwatch! I should have read through this forum earlier!

    Anyway, there is a way to make it run under CM12S again: everything works the same way as under KitKat, including notifications, Sync pictures & audio from the Gear to the phone, taking calls and installing 3rd party apps on the Gear. Unfortunately, I cannot provide any step-by-step guide, as it was more a trial and error way that eventually worked out. But I guess, you could give it a try !

    Basically, it's a installation of the latest Gear Manager 2.2.15022599 but using older versions from saproviders, goproviders and hostmanager APKs. You'll all find these versions in the 1st post from Brendo (mediafire).

    Here are the version that I have installed and running on my device:
    • Connection Manager 0.9.66
    • Gear Plugin 2.2.15022599
    • Gear software update 2.141213.2191
    • Gear Module 2.2.15022599
    • goproviders 2.0.434
    • HostManager 2.2.14100299
    • NSyncProvider 1.022
    • Samsung Accessory Service 2.15.97
    • Samsung Gear 2.2.15022599
    • SANotiProvider 1.0.9.45
    • saproviders 2.0.87
    • SASystemProviders 2.3.26
    • svoiceprovider 1.0.3
    • TextTemplateProvider 2.5.0

    The GearManagerStub.apk is not required.
    Quick Installation guide (please read in more detail here in this forum):
    1. Download 2.2.15022599 APK File from Brendo Mediafire
    2. Rename APK to ZIP file
    3. Open ZIP File in ES File Explorer, navigate to assets > GearModuleApk
    4. Install all APKs manually (not all will work, never mind)
    5. Older APKs might have a different tree structure (assets > preInstallApks // Gear2Apks
    6. Do a 2nd run with installing all APK again (especially when there are new access rights requested by app!)
    7. When all APKs from the ZIP file are installed, rename file back to ".apk"
    8. Install the main APK
    9. When searching for devices, tap the watch icon on the Gear about 30 times. you'll get a message "press BT within 3 sec.." Then immediately, try to connect the Gear Manager with the Gear
    10. Then, the Gear Manager wanted to install (a newer Host Manager). Do not click OK. Instead, I installed the older Host Manager (version see above) manually, then clicked Cancel/not install.
    11. After a few seconds, the licence agreement pops up - you're done

    I remember that I had big problems with the goprovider.apk and the saprovider.apk. They crashed every second (!), and I needed to deinstall them. Using an older version finally helped! Surprise, even the SMS reply with TextTemplates seems to work fine! The Weather app and the S-Voice is not working. Hope, this will work for you as well! Let me know, if something is unclear - Good Luck!

    I solved saprovider repeatedly (Force Close) by going into Titianium Backup on my phone and clearing it's data.

    Now to figure out when/why/how S-Voice No longer connects via watch to phone. I swear it worked before this update. :silly:

    I tried this and it did stop popping up but I couldn't get my watch to notify me when I got a message and it ended up coming back and wouldn't go away again

    I HAVE FIXED THE ISSUE.
    ppgrading to new firmware on watch. Restoring a stock ROM. Clearing cache, reboot ect. None of this worked.
    All I did was back up the last version of saproviders that worked.2.0.088

    I uninstalled 2.0.244(newest) saproviders and installed the older version of saprovider and it works flawlessly!

    I've uploaded the apk to my drop box.(hope this is allowed)

    Hope it helps everyone with this issue.

    do anybody know where the gear backups are saved on the phone ? I think it is causing some problem with mine to finish the pairing association ...
    It's a hidden folder on internal storage
    .BManager_backup
