v2.2.15070942 no longer comes with preinstalled apks

I no longer have a watch to connect to so can't see if it has any extra apps or whatever. It looks to be updated to lollipop theme though

It also includes a rules.xml file
Code:

Tried this for fun on my N5 running the M preview. The provided APK installs fine, I can get it to try to connect to the watch using NFC on the cradle (doesn't find it on the Bluetooth search). However when I connect it then brings up a notice to install com.samsung.android.gear2smodule from Google Play store to experience full features. Hit ok and it launches the play store, however it says not available (I assume because the phone is an N5). Is there any chance someone can pull down that app? Or even verify it does exist in the play store for Samsung devices?

THANKYOU!!!!!!!!

No I didnt installed GearManagerStub.apk. First I deleted all the files that previously was installed on phone from gear manager (settings-apps-delete everithing related to samsung gear), then I installed all the files from latest version of Gear Manager without Host manager and I installed last the gear manager app.
Then I open the gear manager and connect to the watch, when tries to install host manager press home go to your file explorer and install host manager 2.2.14100299, then come back to gear manager (double tap on home button) and press cancel on installing the host manager, wait and it should ask you to accept the terms. After the watch is connected select all the apps at notifications. And that was all for me.;)


Hi guys., newbie here and I've read 100's of threads over the last 3 days (thats how long it has taken me to get this to work on my HTC one M8 5.0.1) and the above is what worked for me

Thanks to this poster!!!

I was on the verge of giving up (even went to the phone store to look at upgrades!!!)

---------- Post added at 12:57 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:20 PM ----------

Just want to check before I do this and end up with another 3 days of work.

After getting this all setup, the wacth needs new firmware, if I install it will it break the connections again?

Xperia Z3 and Gear 2 Neo

My time with the Galaxy Gear has come to an end. I've replace my S4 with an Xperia Z3 thus no longer have access to Samsung apps to download the app
However, it seems that later versions run independent of the store and if you download any of the v2.2 apks, they'll let you know there is an update available and download latest version
I will be keeping the downloads available

Just wondering if this has updated, I got a Gear 2 Neo for free, and would like to pair it with my new Xperia Z3, which I love. Will the gearmanage work with it, are they any special steps or tweeks to get it working? Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much!

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to install GearManager on my OnePlus Two (Android 5.1.1 rooted)

I have :
- copied the folder GearManagerStub (Lollipop version) in /system/app (rights and owner checked)
- installed the Gear Manager 2.2.15092142
- installed all apps which are in the folder of the Gear Manager 2.2.15022599
- rebooted my phone
- paired my watch with my phone in bluetooth

But the Manager can't find my Gear 2 Lite :(

So I have some questions :
- These apk are they compatible with the Samsgun Galaxy Gear 2 Lite ?
- Did I do things in order ?
- Did I miss somethings ?

Thanks for your help,

Najihel

I have been searching many forums and I am hoping this one can help. I have a Note 4 running 5.1.1. I had a Gear Fit and upgraded to a Gear 2 Neo. I cannot get it to connect to S Voice. A lot of forums say the problem they had was they didn't have the saproviders.apk. I have that and have uninstalled the Gear app and reinstalled it a bunch of times. I am still getting Connection Failed. I cannot get in to the settings in the Gear app for S Voice. Also I have disabled and enabled S Voice hoping that would work.

I have a feeling I am missing a file or more but I don't know which ones. I have seen people list files on here but they are for other phones.

This is what I have installed at this time:
Samsung Gear - 2.2.15111841
saproviders - GearS.2.0.484
Gear Plugin - 2.2.02.15071741
GearModule - 2.2.02.15071741
Host Manager - 2.2.02.15071741
S Voice - 11.7.0.1

Not sure what else is needed. Also, my phone has not been rooted.

Any help is really appreciated, I have been working on this for weeks and my head really hurts.:crying:

Update, I tried to follow the instructions from ebere62 and some of the stuff wouldn't install and it wouldn't let me in to the program at all without updating it.

I did try connecting my Gear 2 Neo to my Note Pro 12.2 running 5.1.1 and S Voice worked fine on there. So I know it is not a problem with the Gear.

I hope someone has an answer because I do not want to reset my phone because with my luck, I would do it and it still wouldn't be fixed.

It is working now. I compared my tablet to my phone and I was missing savoiceprovider. I know I had it before but I deleted everything I could find when I was trying to do those instructions and it didn't get reinstalled. After I reinstalled it, everything works fine. I must of either had an old version of it or a corrupt one.

I hope this helps other people that are having the same problems and same them a lot of research. :D

Probably a stupid question, but does this software work with the Gear Live? I've tried to have it search for it with no luck. Its not in the available smartwatch category either.

Was just wondering what I could do, or if its even possible. Love the watch, but want to customize it :)

No, gear live uses android wear. Tizen/Samsung android uses Gear manager

Hi Guys

If anyone's still battling, I think the following will help:

Gear 1:
1. Install SD Maid from the Play Store, remove all apps associated with the Gear and then run Corpse Finder. Clear Bluetooth data from your app manager as well (We want a clean install thus removing all data associated with your previous attempts at getting the Gear to work)

2. Download gear manager 1.2 from this source: http://www.mediafire.com/?yo17ta4qyrx50zj

3. Install Gear Manager and open it and follow the prompts and install all the supporting applications.

4. If it worked, the last thing you need to do is enable notifications (Gear manager app on your phone > notifications > tap on more notifications and all your apps will appear


Gear 2:
1. Samsung has released a new version of Gear manager which supports non-Samsung phones. See: http://www.technobuffalo.com/2015/1...nager-app-is-now-available-to-other-androids/

Hope this helps

Resurrection remix android 6 note 3 - gear2 sm-r380

Hi all,

I am really struggling with my Gear 2 SM-R380 and my new non-stock ROM from PB, which i am grateful for it, it is really fast, in fact my phone has never been so fast even having active programs tuning the system, killing non authorized apps, etc...

I have tried many different ways to try to make the Gear connect to the phone but either Gear Manager was complaining about the phone software (latest versions) or with the old version 15.02 Gear Manager was working but complaining about the watch software.

After installing Android Wear in the watch and successfully connecting to the phone I share the same view as many others, i want Tizen 3 back so I am looking forward to get Gear manager working in non-samsung Android 6.0.1

Will anyone with a Note 5 (for example) or any other phone runnning android 6.0.1 be so kind to share the following apk files extracted from his/her phone?
01. Gear Plugin
02. Gear Module
03. goProviders
04. Host Manager
05. Samsung Accessory Service
06. Watch Manager
07. saFileTransfer
08. fotaProvider
09. Gear Manager Stub
10. Samsung Gear (Gear Manager apk)

Thank you very much in advance.

PS. If anyone has installed resurrection remix 601 in note 3 and want to share experiences, problems, solutions, etc... please email me ([email protected])

What .apk is in the newest version of Samsung Gear Manager _2.2.16022241 that is not in Samsung Gear Manager_2.1.14062401 that allows the newest version to automatically reconnect bluetooth if the connection is lost?

    v1.8.022599 (Gear 1) | v2.2.15022599 (Gear 2)


    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

    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!
    2
    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
