Go over to your Messaging app, press the options button/menu button (depends on the device). A short list will pop-up including options like Search, Drat Messages, Delete, etc. One of these options should say 'Configuration Messages' or something similar. This is where the CP messages you receive are stored. I'm not sure as to what purpose they serve (they ...

I had faced the same problem myself. System settings > device > accessibility > services. Something in there is set to On. Switch it to off and you will be OK. I had the same problem because I had an application set to on. Instant fix!

In your devices settings (under Settings → WiFi or Settings → Wireless & Networks → WiFi, depending on your Android version / ROM) you should find a check-box to enable notifications for "open networks". If you enable that (and, of course, have WiFi enabled), Android will always scan for networks in the background (which it does anyway ...

It won't fit, The Note 2 batteries are physically larger than the Note 1's battery slots. Your best bet is finding a good third-party extended battery.

You need to clear the "Launch by default" setting for StumbleUpon. Open up your phone settings, then go to Applications. Look for the StumbleUpon app, and click on it. Here is where you can do things such as uninstall/disable the app, clear the data, etc. One of the options is to Clear defaults. This is the option you need to run. It will restore the app-...

I also recently upgraded my Note2 from 4.1 to 4.3 and was having the same problem. I installed the Wakelock Detector by UzumApps and found that the Noom Walk pedometer app was waking the screen. I uninstalled the Noom Walk app and the screen no longer wakes. The Noom developers have posted a test APK which can be found here: http://noom.uservoice.com/forums/...

There's the free and open source Tunes Viewer which is sadly not available in the Play store (Apple probably doesn't allow it): The easiest way is to install the FOSS market F-Droid which hosts such apps and install Tunes Viewer from there (search for "TunesViewer"). It's also directly available as an .apk installation file here, but I'd prefer the F-Droid ...

The update is just a bug fix update, no new features. The lock screen bug that you mentioned allowed bypassing the lock screen for a short amount of time, details can be found for example on TheVerge or AndroidCentral.

Just in case somebody stumbles upon this question - you don't need to uninstall Facebook. Just open the Gallery, press the menu button and go to "Content to display" option. Uncheck Facebook there. Done.

I had to download Samsung's USB drivers for this device from their support page. After you have the driver installed, when you plug in the device, Windows search windows.com for updates and finds: Samsung mobile usb composite device Samsung-sgh-i317 Samsung mobile usb modem Samsung Android ADB Interface Now, the interface still shows the "Connected as a ...

Due to a disclosure agreement, Corning (who make about 90% of screens) will not answer any questions on what devices use their technology. However, Samsung have said: "GT-N7100 does not have Gorilla Glass 2. Thank you for your interest." That doesn't say who makes it or what type of material it is I'm afraid. However, from friends and others I would say ...

Since you bought your phone from Kuwait, the phone has the Kuwait Galaxy Note 2 Rom, and still now the 4.3 update has not been pushed out in Kuwait or the middle east region for both the note 2 and s3. But for the Indian Rom 4.3 has already been pushed out for both the phones. My brother had the same problem with his s3 and since I have some knowledge in ...

You are using the stock recovery, which only allows files signed by Samsung to be flashed. Flash a new recovery via Odin, such as CWM, TWRP or Philz.

The short answer is no. The detailed answer is - it will be difficult - very difficult. The camera from the stock samsung firmware relies on the touchwiz framework to work correctly. Any AOSP based rom comes without the touchwiz framework - and that's one of the best reasons to install an AOSP based rom. So what does this mean in the end? You would need ...

The language setting was my key problem - after changing the OS language from Croatian to English (U.S.), Google Now is miraculously ready to go! Watch the video How to get Google Now talking to you... for an instructional guide on changing your system language.

You must be running at least Android 4.1 to use Google Now - please ensure this is true. If you are running at least Android 4.1, then ensure you have the latest Google Voice Search update from the Google Play Store - be aware that it is listed twice (at least on my old device).

In Settings > Contacts > Show all contacts should be disabled which was the case for me but still had same problem. So I enabled "Show all contacts" and exited whatsapp. Launched Whatsapp again and disabled 'Show all contacts' and got the names back again instead of just phone numbers. Hope my experience helps.

Here's an option to try: Go to Settings> Sound> Battery Full Notification. Un-check this option and see if that fixes the issue the next time you charge your Note.

I had same problem. I tried this, and it worked: Settings > Application manager > All > Options > Reset the application preferences.

I have found the solution that might help lots of people. I was able to install rom toolbox pro, I tried to fix the permissions but that didn't help then I changed the setting under app2sd that was set to save everything to extSD regardless of what it is TO auto as it should be by default i think and now i can install anything from the playstore without ...

Open joined contact > menu button > mark as default > chose account, name, phone. Thats all.

You can do this easily using an app such as SG USB Mass Storage Enabler. As you already know, your device does not support mass storage facility. So You have to ask help from MTP modes or enable the Mass Storage mode. The app stated above does the latter. It is easy. But you have to have the root access. If you don't know how, use this guide to know how.

i just asked asked a similar question at *Move* *photos* from android to pc *wirelessly* *in one step* after becoming frustrated that the seemingly common task of moving photos from a phone to a pc (crazy, i know) was met with suggestions ranging from rooting and tweaking the phone to adb to cumbersome file transfers (fine for us techies, not fine for e.g. ...

I was having a similar problem. Just wait for a minute or so and that folder does get created eventually. Of course the workaround is to either: Create Folder on a local Windows Drive and then copy it onto the phone OR Install Custom Recovery and reboot into it and activate USB Mass Storage

The way I understand it is that the baseband or radio partition is firmware used by the baseband processor, which is physically different from the application processor. The BP also has its own RAM and communicates with the android kernel via a process called the RIL (Radio Interface Layer). When you install/update a new ROM this should not touch the ...

You should be able to use adb backup which is takes a complete backup of the phone. You'll need to install the Android SDK but this should allow you to backup the whole device Backup There are a number of parameters you can supply but the simplest way to do a full backup is to run: adb backup -all -f C:\backup.ab More info can be found on this xda post ...

I too have not figured out the intermittent screen turn on problem but will address one other issued mentioned. Lithium ion batteries have internal circuitry which shuts the charging down when the battery is at 100%. Unless the electronics are bad, you cannot overcharge them. Leaving them discharged for long periods CAN harm them. You can get roughly 300 ...

Since your phone is rooted you can use Wanam Xposed Note that the framework itself doesn't add any functionality, but once installed you can download (via the framework itself) modules that have custom functionality. Wanam Xposed module has many tweaks for stock Samsung Touchwiz ROMs, GravityBox has many for morer 'stock' type ROMs. You can change the SMS ...

I did exactly the same thing successfuly by editing the bt_config.xml file in A HEX VIEWER in my PC and copying/replacing it using the Aoma Manager. My phone now connects automatically to the new device.
