Home Button Stopped Working - Samsung Galaxy S2 (international)


My home button seems to have stopped working. If i'm in an app it won't return me to the home screen or bring up the tap and talk screen. Also if i hold down the power key i don't get the list of options to go into flight mode etc but just "power down". This just happened today?

Now, when installing 2. 3. 6 i just put the tar file in the pda slot and press start. Is there a problem here? Is there a partition thing that ics made which i need to revert?

Can't Copy / Move Anything Using Samsung Galaxy S2 (international)

What i want to do is just simple plug my mobile into my pc via the usb and for the phone to be recognized as a disk drive so i can quickly copy/move stuff but when it's plugged in and recognized. I can't copy/move anything, it says the phone is in use. I factory reset and it still didn't work, the only way i can do it is if i connect via kies then download it which seems a bit long and winding when i'm trying to do something quick.

Also i have problems with scrolling and pinch and zoom, on several sites i'm getting transparency in the background, it's going back anyway as it's only a day old but i would really like to know about it not being recognized as a disk drive.

Questions From A Egypt User - Samsung Galaxy S2 (international)

I have a few questions. I'm sorry cause i have a blackberry and an now iphone background so i have no idea about android except for the few reviews and videos i recently checked but anyway i'm not that big on technicalities and terminology (so forgive me if my questions are too dumb i'm seriously considering getting an unlocked samsung gs2 from amazon but i live in egypt so:

1) carriers in egypt support 3g, so will the internet speed (due to the dual core) be that fast as i saw on the review videos of the sgs2?

2) are the android applications on the market for free?, Like the major ones (but not games) cause i heard there are thousands of apps free, is that true?

3) do i only have to have a gmail, can't i have a yahoo or whatever other mail aside?

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!

Issue: Charging And Heat On Samsung Galaxy S2 (international)

The other day, in school, i noticed that in only a few minutes my battery had gone from around 80% to 1, or 2%. The phone was also quite hot. Now when i try to charge it, it gets hot after a few minutes and shows a warning thermometer logo. Unfortunately the phone is also rooted with cwm and has a cm9 nightly installed on it. I very much doubt that this is the cause, but it will pose a problem if i need to get the phone repaired or replaced. I obviously can't un-root it or install the stock rom on it when it is like this. What do i do? Appreciate any help and feedback.

Problem: Media Scanner Keeps Scans - Samsung Galaxy S2 (international)

I have a weird problem with my phone. When i disconnect it from the power cord in the morning, it obsessively runs the media scanner. It scans and then completes, and keeps cycling. This is a rather new problem, and i cant figure out why it keeps doing this cycle.

I have tried turning it off and on, batter pulls, and it is annoying as ***. It prevents me from listening to music or doing anything until it finishes, but then it starts again. Its almost like the phone thinks i have plugged it into my computer, but i only plugged it into the wall.

Any fixes for this? Anyone know the process name to kill in the applications window? So annoying, and drains the battery when it keeps doing this for hours.

Web Pages Do Not Automatically Fit The Screen - Samsung Galaxy S2 (international)

On my desire when i opened up a thread on a message board i was able to pinch the screen to make it easier to read and it would automatically fit the screen regardless how large i made it. But on my new galaxy although pinching does make it bigger it no longer auto fits which means i have to keep scrolling left to right to read what has been written. Sure its just a simple thing to sort but without an actual manual i am lost. Can anyone help or even have a clue what i am talking about.

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
Folders
Wallpapers

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

All programs
Add to homescreen
Wallpaper
Search
Notifications
Settings

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?
