Samsung Gear with Samsung Apps on non-Samsung Phone ?

MadPup 3,540 September 20, 2015 at 10:50 AM
I received a Samsung Gear 2 smart watch this week from a Cowboom deal and with various degrees of success I have been busy trying to get it to work with my LG G3 (Lollipop 5.0.1). It was relatively easy (via YouTube) to get it working without the Samsung Apps option, but this is pretty limiting. So I am now as far as having rooted the phone [xda-developers.com] and am playing around with editing the build props [youtube.com], but without success. As is often the case with Android, hacks that worked 6 months ago no longer apply.

Has anyone managed to get it working?

More info [xda-developers.com].

BTW, this APK [qiannao.com] provides all functionality minus Samsung Apps without any changes to the phone.

Honestly you'd have better responses at XDA.

Lollipop has broken most hacks. Even on my vanilla lollipop phone from Google there are so many issues. Gotta wait for devs to catch up.
