Transfer Files From Phone While Phone Is Unresponsive - Samsung Galaxy S2


Basically when i turn my sgs2 on and enter the pattern lock many force close boxes appear and its impossible to get rid of these and i cannot access anything. I was told this is due to some problem with corrupt files/software or something, and the only way round it is hard reset(factory reset). So i was wondering if there are any tricks/tips or anything like that which will allow me to transfer my pictures/music. Kies wont work.

Samsung Galaxy S - Epic Unresponsive After Unsecessful Root Attemt / Restart It

I made 2 unsuccessful attempts to root my galaxy s epic. The device is now unresponsive. Only the front lower buttons and a red indicator light are lit (and wont go out). Nothing responds.

The first attempt i made was from this link:
Root samsung galaxy s android 2. 1, 2. 2 on windows, mac os x

I followed the instructions, and the comand screen went through until it stopped at 'your device is now rebooting' . My device was not rebooting, no recovery, nothing was happening. I just closed the cmd window and unplugged the epic. Things were still working ok after that.

The second attempts i made was from this link (thru this forum):
One click root & recovery for the epic 4g! V2. 4. 0 now has clockworkmod! - Xda-developers

I ran the run. Bat again, nothing. I ran the adb.exe. Still nothing, but i believe this is where my trouble began. I closed everything and unplugged the epic.

Then the trouble started. Email stalled when i opened it, but it came back. Then fb stalled when i opened it. It never came back, the whole thing went black and unresponsive.

I just got this thing. I'm totally sick over this. What did i do?!

Also, how do i get the battery out of the epic, and how do i restart it?

Issue: Extremely Slow Music Transfer On Samsung Galaxy Nexus

I plugged the phone into my windows 7 laptop, the laptop recognized it, found the drivers, and i can access the memory from my computer. However, when i go to drag and drop my files to the phone, i first get a warning that the device may not recognize the file (click on ignore) and then the transfer starts but it's obnoxiously slow. For around 7 gigs that took 10 minutes transferring from the sd card on my incredible, i was given an estimate of 4+ hours on the nexus. Is there any way around this? Google music just isn't an option.

Edit: tried switching from mtp to ptp and that reduced the time to around an hour. Still seems like it shouldn't take that long.

Installing Apps, Games Files Into External Sd Card On Samsung Galaxy S2

I have a samsung galaxy s2 i9100g, along with sony xperia neo and htc desire z. After searching extensively throughout the internet and androidforums.com, i needed to post this thread.

On my xperia neo, which has no "internal storage" unlike the sgs2, apps/games can install completely on its "external sd storage". The same is applied to the desire z.

On the sgs2 however, the app/game is present on the "internal sd storage". (11gb out of 16gb). It only move 1% in reality to the "external sd" that too into the secandroid folder.

What i want to ask is that apps such as "sygic", "gta 3", "asphalt", "nova" etc have considerable size of files and while the sgs2 has 11gb available they install into the "internal sd" but in xperia neo, which has about 200mb of "internal phone memory" and no "internal sd storage", these apps/games install their bulk files into the "external sd storage" which is shown as "sd storage".

Please help me and tell me how i can makes these apps/games install their files into the "external sd card". Since "asphalt 6" is about 900mb and on sgs2 it is on the 11gb "internal sd" while on the xperia it is on the "external sd" which is mounted as the "sd card". I am waiting for your helpful replies and advises.

Samsung Epic 4g - Sometimes Screen Is Unresponsive To Touch

I've noticed lately that my sometimes my screen is unresponsive to touch. The hard touch buttons on the bottom work, so in order to get my screen respond to touch, i have to turn the screen off then on. Sometimes, its not the whole screen, but a particular area, for example while texting, the "send" button doesn't work or it might be like the letter "h" or something. So i have to change to portrait or reboot my phone for it to work.

I tried hard resetting my phone, still same issues. Anyone else have this problem? Any solutions? Could it be because of an app or live wallpaper or something. Obviously the 30 days are up now (bought 8/31) so can i take to the sprint store or i have to contact samsung.

I love my htc magic, but struggle with the calendar app. I had already created a google calendar before i bought my magic, but can find no way of adding this calendar so i can view/edit it. I can only seem to add and remove the gmail one i created when first starting up the phone.

Any ideas how i do this - all i want to do is use my existing google calendar (which i login to using my yahoo mail account address) without having to transfer the lot into the gmail one i created on the phone.

Can't Wakeup Phone Using Bluetooth - Samsung Galaxy S2

I have paired the phone with my bluetooth successfully and had used it a few times. The problem is when the phone is sleeping (i.e. Screen locked), i tried pressing the button on my bluetooth but it won't wake up the phone. I have to first unlock the screen and then place calls. This is very inconvenient when i was driving, and defeat the purpose of using the bluetooth. I have been using the iphone 4 before and it does not have this problem. When i press the button on the bluetooth, it wakes the phone up and activate voice command immediately, even when the screen is locked.

I have searched everywhere in the setting and can't find anything that allows me to do this. Your help would be appreciated for this noob.

Samsung Galaxy S Phone Contacts Suddenly Disappeared

Device: samsung galaxy s
Os : android 2. 1

Basically i don't use google account to sync my contacts because the groups thing doesn't work the way i want it. So instead, i use kies, which allow you to sync outlook contact with your phone, which all worked fine. However, last night before going to bed i sent a few sms message and everything was fine, i.e. All contacts were there. But this morning when i work up because of a text message from a strange number, which was actually from a friend of mine, so i thought he has a new number so i tried to update his contacts but when i click on "update existing contact" my address book pops up and is . Empty.

After that, i opened my contacts and nothing is there. I turned on displaying google contacts and its all fine, but when i choose phone contact, absolutely nothing is displayed. I did absolutely nothing last night, and i don't believe i cleared all my contacts while in my sleep (because i don't even know how to do that while im awake). Btw, i have been adding quiet a lots of contacts over the last 2 weeks (since last time i sync with kies) so i really need them back.

Samsung Galaxy S Phone Won't Charge

My charger isn't working anymore. I don't know whats the problem but i went to bell today (bell is a canadian store which sells the phone) and they said it's because i spilled water on the phone, which is why it's not working. Now this could be true because my phone fell and completely came apart at a club and the floor was sticky with booze, but that was last friday; it's been one whole week.

Should i trust the store? Is there anything i can do to fix this? I've tried charging on my laptop as well and that doesn't work either.

Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket - Phone Randomly Shutting Off

I had my 1st skyrocket for almost 2 weeks when i began getting random shutdowns. Sometimes i would have to pull the battery to get it to respond again & other times i would be able to get it to turn back on by pressing the power button for about 30sec. I took the phone back to the at&t shop where they were baffled but replaced the battery because that was the only issue they knew of. After a day or so, it began shutting off again. I returned to the store where they replaced the phone.

I have now had my 2nd phone for 2 days and it randomly shut down again this a. M. I love this phone but i am leary of keeping it in light of these issues and from the problems i have read from other owners on this forum. Has anyone had any luck in solving this issue? . Btw, the battery is charging/draining normally and i have only used the charger that came with the phone.
