How Do I Restore Stock Apps On Samsung Galaxy Ace?

I've got gt-s5830 phone running 2. 3. 3. So far the phone is working perfect. I was messing around the other and deleted some stock apps by error. I used ti backup for this. I would like to restore a couple of them back, so i used the restore function in ti backup, but for some reason it did not work. Did not give any errors, just rebooted without the app being restored.

Anyway, i believe i have 2 options.

1). Flash 2. 3. 3 which i found - droidangel. Blogspot.com/2011/05/samsung-galaxy-ace-s5830-original-stock.html

2) upgrade to 2. 3. 5 which is also located at the above page. But i am not sure what 2. 3. 5 would be best to use. I'm in the uk, using a vf contract with a unlocked phone.

I have no issues on flashing, but i don't want to flash using the wrong rom and messing it all up.

Firmware Update Failed On Samsung Galaxy S2 (international)

Galaxy s2 (uk 3.co.uk), not rooted or anything like that. I checked for updates this morning and for the first time since i got the s2 there was an update available. I set it away updating and didnt pay too much attention to it. I think it did a f/w update first and then downloaded another software update (ice cream sandwich perhaps? I don't know)

It finished installing the second update and then restarted. Ever since the phone just keeps restarting. I get the samsung splash and then the 3.co.uk splash and then another "s" splash and then back to the 3.co.uk splash and then the "s" splash again (*repeat infinitively)

I booted into the android system recovery <3e>
Tried wiping the cache partition + restart
And tried data/factory reset + restart
No change

In recovery the yellow text at the bottom says:

-Coping media files.

Successfully copied media files.

# Manual mode #

- Updating application.

Successfully updated application.

- Appling multi-csc.

Installing multi-csc

Can't access to '/system/csc/h3g/system/'.

Successfully applied multi-csc.

What do i do now please? I'm stumped!

Samsung Galaxy S - Tried New Firmware Now Phone Won't Start

So i decided to try and upgrade to froyo after i couldn't get the kries reg. Trick to work. I was using [13. 10. 10][cf-root v1. 2] jph jpk jp6 jpm jpa - superuser+busybox+2e, cwm compat! - Xda-developers website to upgrade the kernal? To enable "2e" recovery, apparently what i needed to do to be able to do the firmware upgrade listed on [rom] [froyo] voodoo doctor edition v2. 0 | universal lagfix | cwm recovery - xda-developers.

So anyway i obvioiusly missed a big chunk of information on the basics, and basically i put the phone in download mode "down volume, home, power" then i opened odin and chose the . Tar file i downloaded from the first link, and hit start. After this the phone just sits at the galaxy start screen white letters saying "galaxy s gt0i9000 samsung"

It just sits there won't go any further. So obviously i've flashed it with the wrong firmware (kernal). I can still go into download mode, so i'm guessing there is a way to fix this i'm just not sure how >. <. I've gone into reset mode and hit reset to factory but that obviously doesn't help as it resets it to the last flashed firmware which was bad.

The phone was brought from smartphones, htc, sony ericsson, blackberry, nokia, brodit, hp ipaq, palm - clove technology the details i have from the phone in kries regeditnd the phone's download mode to restore it so i can at least turn it on?

How To Remove Default Apps On Samsung Galaxy S?

I have some default apps that i do not want on my phone, their permissions are too invasive as far as i am concerned. I have tried all the usual paths, ie, going to settings-applications-etc but these annoying apps will not go away. The phone is dead standard and i have only about 6 apps that i have downloaded. Any advice would be appreciated.

Orange T-mobile Default Network - Samsung Galaxy S2

I've got a newly purchased samsung galaxy s2 on an orange contract. The network defaults to "orange", as you'd expect, but i've manually changed that to "orange t-mobile" as it makes a big difference in coverage on my journey to work.

When i power-cycled the phone, it reverted back to "orange" on startup. I don't plan to power cycle very often, but just wondered if there was a way of setting a preferred network on the handset instead of having to manually change every time the phone starts? On my old nokia e72, once i'd set to "orange t-mobile" the first time, it stuck even through many power cycles (crappy thing kept losing data connectivity until reset!).

Problem: Galaxy S2 Gt-i9100g - No Firmware Upgrade Available

My dad bought a samsung galaxy s2 from ksa. Below are the details:

Gt-i9100g
Android 2. 3. 4
Baseband version: i9100gdzkh5
Kernel version: 2. 6. 35. 7 root@dell81 #2
Build number: gingerbread. Jpkh8

Thing is, i am in india. When i try to upgrade the firm ware using kies over wifi (have given up on finding a solution to the usb cable problem) it says no firmware upgrade available. I'm a complete newbie at android but have seen a lot of posts saying that update for gingerbread 2. 3. 6 is available for this model.

Can someone help me with understanding if im doing something wrong coz i dont really want to miss out the updates. Also, since my dad created his own samsung account on the phone, i cant seem to remove that and put mine instead. Any help for this would really help me a lot.

Samsung Fascinate - Default Car Dock App

I bought the custom car dock accessory from verizon last week and although i do like the design and the way it hold the device i do have some issues with a couple of things.

1. How do you get the audio to work through the 3. 5mm jack. There is a input on the back of the sliding part of the dock but when plugged into my car head unit i can't get anything to come out. I did try to hook up when i was on a call with some one and i was able to hear them when i turned the volume up but the could not hear me. It's almost like the microphone is deactivated when the devices is connected to the dock.

2. The car dock app : where do i begin. First of all you can't turn it off completely when the device is hooked up. Second you have no choice on which search app to use and which navigation app to use. It forces you to use bing and verizon navigation. This is unacceptable. For this app to be any way useful it should be completely customizable. There should be some law that keeps verizon from forcing you to use certain applications on a device.

So does anyone know how to configure this car dock app so it's any kind of useful or does anyone know anyway to completely disable it and is there a third party car dock app that more useful?

Samsung Fascinate - Any Way To Make Youtube Default To Play Videos In High Quality

Just joined the forums, thought i'd say hey and ask a few questions. I tried going to the vzw community forums. That was useless. My wife and i both got fascinate's last month and there's a few thing i'm trying to figure out:

-A week or two ago i downloaded a system update and it worked fine, with her phone though every time i try to download the same update it gives me a "server unavailable" error message. I've tried it several times over several days. My phone just says "no update available. "

-Is there any way to make youtube default to play videos in high quality? Every time i go to watch a youtube video it defaults to normal quality and i can't find a setting to change it. Can this be done?

-My phone has 5-20 second "freezes" when opening various aps (anything from the browser to a game), even when it's the only thing running. Is this just the nature of android/2. 1 or should this not be happening?

-When i first got my phone i had an interesting issue: my 3g connection stopped working (in the middle of birmingham, al) and my clock up top froze at a certain time. If i locked the phone and hit the unlock button the correct time showed on the bottom clock. A restart fixed this. Has this happened to anyone else? Any idea what caused it? A talk with the verizon rep said to open the back and pull the battery out while the phone was running for a "hard reset. " It's not happened since.

-Finally, it seems like my battery isn't lasting as long as it "should. " I look at my usage and it says my display is sucking up 71% of my battery. But i have my brightness set to the next to lowest setting and just a picture background.

I'm sure it looks like alot of complaints but overall both my wife and i are extremely pleased with our phones, despite the few annoyances.

Samsung Galaxy S - I9000 No Mobile Ap Setting & Samsung App Store

I just bought my sgs i9000 in france a few days back. It's locked to sfr here. I tried searching the forums for an answer to these but had no luck.

I noticed 2 things:

2. No samsung app store is installed with the phone. Is there any way to do this? I want to install the asphalt 5 game.
