jD's post states you need to hit a couple of buttons to pair properly. X button and power button I think. Try that?
By the way, JD's post on the other thread is talking about G3 not G3s. So we need somebody generous enough to test and prove the G3.
I've just ordered one from aliexpress, but it will probably take a week or two before it arrives.
