Samsung Galaxy S - Unable To Launch Via Vol Up+home+power

I'm unable to launch the via vol up+home+power so i attempted via adb and i receive the status 7 error. After that failed i figured i'd check to see if i could get 2. 2 for my phone. Kies tells me there's a firmware upgrade to i897xxx7 (sorry forget the version name). I attempt to upgrade it however kies crashes at the same point each time. I then tried on my 2nd pc and the same problem happened. I tried to update kies on both however i ended up doing a full reinstall. Kies now does not recognize my phone on both computers yet windows (32b xp) does. Also reinstalled usb drivers. *So to sum it up, i cannot root, cannot get kies to recognize my phone, and cannot upgrade the firmware.

Samsung Galaxy Nexus - Portable Battery Power

Anyone ever use something like this? Verizon samsung galaxy nexus rechargeable backup power portable battery charger (399759199890) | ebay

I have a duracell thing that works well, but ya gotta keep a cable with it to plug into your phone. I'd rather have something built in and carry one piece. More money than i want to spend on some off shoot brand, but curious if anyone's ever had one.

Issue: Power Button Does Not Respond On Samsung Galaxy Nexus

The power button does not respond whatsoever, holding it down won't even turn it on. It started being intermittent and wouldn't wake the phone up from sleep and now it won't even turn on. I know the phone itself isn't dead as when i connect the charger the screen lights up with the battery icon charging. I opened up the phone myself, didn't touch anything. Will this void my warranty? If so, how much would it cost to repair a power connector if that is the problem? I may have forgotten to lock the oem from fastboot. How will the effect the repair?

Rooted Rc 29 Stuck - Error: Can't Open /sdcard/

I installed the rc 29 revert firmware thing. Rooted it. Now when i download/try to install the jf rc33 update (to keep root) it wont go. On the bootup screen (hold home+power) it says " android system recovery utility e:can't open /cache/recovery/command " then the "home+back - reboot system now etc. "

Its supposed to be in the "using test keys" mode and im not sure what/how i managed to mess this up? It boots up normal and i can download apps from the market/make calls/send sms, etc. But i really just want the latest update on it. Anyone think they can help? ( I did download "jfv1. 42_rc33" and saved it on the sd card as "" and tried updating using recovery utility, both wiping and not, and get the error "e:can't open /sdcar/ (no such file or directory) installation aborted" maybe i rooted it wrong? Idk. ) When i try to do the bootloader power on thing. (Hold camera+power) it boots up showing a new image (androids skateboarding vs. Originally it was just 4 different colored bars).

Anybody think they can help? Im kinda a newb at linux.

Cannot Remove Home Screens On Samsung Galaxy S2

My old galaxy s2 on orange uk was perfect, i could delete unused home screens and i customized it exactly how i wanted it. However today i had to have my phone replaced under warranty as the touch screen became unresponsive in places. The phone they have sent me obv has different software on it because i don't like it and i cant customize it!

My first problem is that i never had on my old phone was i now have 5 home screens and a orange scroll bar across the bottom. I don't use widgets or any of that crap, i use 1 home screen with 4 icons on and everything else is organized in folders in the app screen. However i cant remove them. If i hold them down all i get is a "add to homescren" window with the following listed:

Orange widgets
Orange shortcuts
Android widgets
Android shortcuts

If i press the menu button on said screens, i get

All programs
Add to homescreen

By default it also opens straight to the 3rd (middle) screen of the 5. I have no trash bin to drag them down to like my previous phone. Somebody please help me and tell me how to get rid of them?

Lg Esteem - Does The Update Work For Power Cycling Issue ?

Yesterday i walked into a metro store looking to buy the esteem and after telling the employee what i want she told me that they had pulled it because of an issue with the phone. Saying that it had been power cycling. So i went home and did some research and found that lg had put out an update for the phone to fix the issue. Does the phone actually have this issue and does the update work if it does? Also if i find the phone at another actual metro store should i get it? Can anyone give me any advice on what to do?

Samsung Galaxy S (vibrant) Home Key Issue

It was too good to be true. A perfectly working phone. So i started having the issue where the home key doesn't register alot of times, and apparently its a known issue over the net. Many people are having this same issue where the home key doesn't work properly. Every other key is perfect, but the home key doesn't listen. I wonder if samsung will recall it, or could this be fixed with a firmware update? Or is it hardware? That's why i should have bought from t-mobile so i dont have to deal with wirefly.

Ics - Roaming Indication On Home Network - Samsung Galaxy S2

Recently upgraded my galaxy s2 to ics using a guide at All appears to work fine apart from one thing - sat at home, my signal indicator shows that i am roaming and a warning notification reports "you have lost data connectivity because you left your home network with data roaming turned off". To clarify, i'm at home, a three network customer and never saw the roaming indicator at anytime before in the uk. I also have data roaming turned off for the usual obvious reasons. Has anyone encountered this and does anyone have any ideas how i can remedy this situation?

App To Save Home Screen - Wifi Is On Constantly - Samsung Galaxy S2

I have some questions and would be grateful if someone could let me have an answer or two: -

1. I saw a home screen recently which had a shortcut on it to mobile networks/use packet data. How was this done/what program was used to create it etc?

2. When i first got my phone i configured the phone to only switch on wifi when the screen was active. For the life of me i do not know how i did this. Recently this setting has been lost and the wifi is on constantly. When i am at home i would like it to switch off when the screen goes off and comes on when active. The only thing i can find is "wifi sleep policy, which i have configured to "when screen turns off". However after my screen switches off and i turn it back on, i do not see any signs of it having been off - ie; i do not see it switching back on like it used to do, by observing the top notifications bar. This is a drain on my battery - yesterday i noticed that it had been on all the time i was at work - over 10 hours - and the battery reduced by 50%, which is not what it used to do. In wifi settings, even though i am locked on to my home wifi, the phone is constantly scanning away every few seconds - i would like it to stop doing this when connected. Any thoughts etc please?

3. Is there a program out there which can save your home screens/application screens? Yes i know i can restore my phone using cpw/titanium backup but i only want to restore my home screens after diddling about with new themes etc. I usually always prefer the look and feel of my existing ones but am getting fed up with restoring manually and titanium backup doesn't appear to do this - it wants to restore all my previous apps etc. Again some help would be appreciated.

4. In cpw/titanium backup how do i start to freeze a program? I would like to experiment with freezing wifi sharing but not sure how to do this exactly ie; what exactly do i do? - The opening screens are not that user friendly. Fwiw i am on 2. 3. 4 cpw (waiting patiently for an upgrade via kies) and cf-1 kernel (i think).

Bluetooth Does Not Work After Update - Samsung Galaxy S2

So the other night i updated my software to 4. 0. 3 kernel: 3. 0. 15-19100xwlp8-cl356487dpi@dell173#3

And i went to use my bluetooth this morning to connect with the computer but the computer just says "no services available" after trying to copy. So after spending an hour or so trying to fix the bluetooth on my computer and failing then tried to get my brother to send me something on blue-tooth on my phone and it didn't work and then i tried to send him something but when i click scan for devices it just doesn't do anything. Also after the update i noticed when i go into a message sometimes it doesn't come up with the predictive text and i have to go out and back in to make it come up. I'm not appreciating this update at all.
