Galaxy S - Samsung Apps Does Not Recognize Sgs / Fix This


As above title says my samsung galaxy s gt1900 is not being recognized in the samsung apps in kies, it says 4 other mobile phone types but not the sgs. And when i unplug it and reconnect it, theres a messgae that says samssung apps is not supporting this phone. I checked on all phone and it only allows certain phones actually only 4 phones.

Are there any fix on this one?

Samsung Galaxy S2 International - Updating Sgs Ii To Ics

Im from sri lanka. I have the international model - gt-i9000. Im now on the 2. 3. 5 firmware version and my build number is gingerbread. Xxki4, and it is rooted. Some days back my phone asked me to update it to the new firm. I just canceled it, now i need to update it to the ics via kies and is it the standard way ? And can i know the pros and cons of ics. Is it necessary to update the phone to ics? If im updating via kies do i need to backup everything? Or just update it without doing anything to my files or contacts? Will it be the same after the new update?

Problem: Samsung Galaxy S2 Did Not Recognize The Sim Card

One morning, my galaxy s2 (bought september, 2011, not rooted, locked to a carrier) refused to come back from airplane mode. Once restarted, it did come back, but it did not recognize the sim card any more. I removed the sim card, tried it in another device, it worked. Tried inserting a different sim to the s2, it did not recognize it either.android version: 2. 3. 4, there is no newer version from the carrier, and i can't upgrade via kies. Browsing through the forums, i've found this to be an uncommon, but already encountered problem. Suggested solutions: factory reset, firmware upgrade, etc. Note that i've removed and cleaned the sim and the phone various times, removed the battery for 30 mins, etc.

Factory reset: when i try to reset my device, it asks for a samsung account password, something i don't remember, i don't really use it. I asked them to e-mail it to me (twice), a day has passed since and no email. I can't use any samsung app on the phone, because of the "missing" sim, i suppose that is why i don't receive a new password either. Is there a workaround? Is it possible that i can't reset my phone without a sim?

Ok, no resetting, how about upgrading? Kies installed, but my device is not recognised. It is just "connecting. " Indefinitely (yesterday i cooked an entire dinner while it was connecting. ). I know it is a regular problem, i have read and tried many solutions (including the usb debug ones), but no. I can access the phone via windows, it charges through usb, but no kies (i miss the backup for contacts, messages).

A possibility is to upgrade firmware via odin, but i'm hesitant to try it while i have no way back (no factory reset). Any advice before taking it back to the shop for repairs (i have some bad experience with them)?

Eclipse (windows) Cannot Recognize Htc Evo / Fix It

I have been developing on the htc hero for a while now, and just got another testing phone: the evo. However, when i plug it in, nothing that i can do will get the system to recognize the evo as something worthy of testing on.

I got the usb drivers. I went to the device manager to tell the system where the drivers are, and to associate them with the evo. But even though i give it the exact folder, windows keeps telling me that no compatible drivers were found. The hero works fine with these drivers, and there are not any updates available for them. I am able to access the sd card when i put the phone in the right mode. Debugging mode is definitely turned on.

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.

I am new galaxy nexus user though i am not new to the android os as i using an acer e130 android 2. 1.

Did anyone experience this?

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.

Cannot Install, Update Apps Or Clear Cache Data - Samsung Galaxy Nexus

Can't install, uninstall or update any apps either through google play on phone or through internet. When trying on my phone, the screen gets stuck at the blue progress line ("installing", "uninstalling", etc. ) And never completes. Back button doesn't leave the screen, but the home button and recent apps button will get me out, and i can go back to the settings>apps screen and try again.

Can't clear cache or data for any apps from the settings>apps. All apps say "computing. " For storage and cache info and never change. In settings>apps>running a number of games (small street, contract killer, stardom, e. Warriors, etc. ) Auto-start and keep coming back after i force close or reboot.

Here's what i've done so far to try to fix it. Reboot, shut down, battery pull. Force close every suspicious app. Certain apps keep coming back. Tried to clear cache of google play store app, but it doesn't seem to clear. Also, clear data, uninstall update never completed. Read more at the forum.

Phone Closes All Apps That Were Open, When Screen Goes To Sleep - Samsung Galaxy Nexus

I just noticed that when the screen goes to sleep the phone closes all apps that were open. For example, i was playing angry birds and stopped to talk to someone. After 30 seconds or whatever the screen went to sleep and when i woke it i was back at my home screen. When i went back to the app it had to start from scratch. It does this all of the time, now that i am paying attention. Is this normal? I assume a battery saving thing?

Samsung Galaxy S - Ota Vibrant Update - Undo Lag Fix Before Updating

Many of us galaxy s owners have had issues with lag concerning the galaxy s line of phones. There is a lag fix called voodoo lag fix and some others. While they tend to make the phone much snappier, some reports on the official t-mobile vibrant forums and over at xda developer forums indicate that the lag fix can stop your update dead in it's tracks.

Some samsung vibrant owners are stating that when they update to the new build eclair. Uvji6, after the phone reboots to complete installation, the device wont boot past the black vibrant splash screen. Many of the folks reporting this issue still had their phones flashed with one of the lag fixes mentioned above.

My advise would be to undo the lag fix before updating to ensure that your vibrant comes back up without issues after the update. Besides i'm sure we don't want samsung pulling the update in belief that it is bricking our phones. That would make us have to wait longer.

Samsung Galaxy S - Receiving "damaged Sd Card" Message / Fix It

Quite possibly coincidental but now a real annoyance.

After updating from jf3 to jm1, after reboot i was advised that my 32gb external sd memory card was damaged. I took the card out of the phone and tried it on the pc and it performed accurately with all of my information accessible.

I copied the files on to the pc and reinstalled it into the sgs. Whereupon again i was presented witht he error message. The card appears dead to the phone with the only remaining option that in not greyred out regarding the sim card the "format" option. I tried this and the card became visible again tot he phone.

I then copy back over all my files which takes a couple of hours. Everything performs as you would expect, until. You turn the phone off. Whereupon it does it's media check and pronounces that the memory card is damaged and the whole reformat, reinsall cycle has to be initiated again.

Really quite tedious. Has anyone else had this problem and know how to fix it? I should add a couple of points, the phone is not rooted and the error message did not appear with jf3 for the 3 weeks it was running this firmware.
