Samsung Gear S
Hi! So, I recently got my new S21 Ultra 5G! Yay! Little did I know, my beloved Gear S would be rendered useless. Does anyone know of a workaround for the clearly purposeful incompatibility? Thanks!

Welcome to XDA🤗

Samsung ended support.
Try the Samsung forum.
Try copying the most recent working apps for it from another phone with ApkExport and try loading them on the S21u.
You will need to firewall block updates and Samsung's connection to it most likely or it will get trashed if it installs/loads successfully.
