    Any of you guys have success connecting a Samsung Gear S3 watch?

    Both stock China ROM nor .EU ROM seem to support it.

    The gear app just crashes when trying to connect to the watch (it does see the watch during setup)

    I don't have this problem with the Xiaomi Mi 5s+

    Maybe a Nougat issue ? Sucks, because I love the watch. Very handy.

    For your information, if it can help :

    I installed Global ROM (xiaomi.eu_multi_MI6_V8.2.25.0.NCACNEC_v8-7.1.zip) with success. But I have the same problem than with my former ROM (China 8.2.26 and CHina 8.2.22).

    Actually, the Gear App crashed after cliquing on the "connexion to Gear" button. But I went to the bluetooth management of the Mi6, and I noticed 2 differents S3. A S3 (DCFE) and a S3 (DCFE) LE, the Mi6 can pair one or the other S3.
    The pairing code appear on both devices, I accept on the S3 and on the Mi6§. Whatever S3 I pick on the bluetooth interface, I have the pairing code that appears on the watch. After accepting nothing appear on the S3, it is still on the message "Download Gear Apps on your mobile".

    The Gear Apps can't be launched once a S3 is paired with the Mi6.
    If I unpair the S3 from the phone, the Gear app can be launch again, I can click on the "connect to Gear" button but then, same shit, the S3 try to connect but after few second the gear App crashes so the connection can't be finalised.

    The main problem is that, I think the entire connection can't be made because of the app crash. SO I can see the S3 on the bluetooth interface but as some files should be missing nothing appear on the watch.

    I asked samsung but they just say "Device not supported".

    Will try the crocobc files. Thank You very much.

    EDIT: With your apk crocobc, it works. Great Thanx.

    Hey Machpoint89,

    I have tried without success with the playstore apps on:
    - MIUI China 8.2.22.0 Stable
    - MIUI China 8.2.26.0 Stable
    - Global Rom 8.2.25.0 Stable

    Then I installed the modified apk I found on the post mentionned above and it has worked (on the Global ROM then maybe It would have worked on the China ROM as well, didn't try). Hope it will help ppl.

    Normally it should work on every ROM. So i'm using xiaomi.eu ROM with root :) Perfect.
