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 ...

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.

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: ...

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 ...

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 ...

I use the Simeji input method. it uses the great "flick" method for inputting kana. It takes some getting used to, but is very fast once you do. To switch between keyboards, just long press in the text field.

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.

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 ...

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 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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

There are multiple possible approaches: If you have Google Cloud Backup activated on the "old" device, your WiFi passwords have been stored along (plain text, by the way). So starting with a new (or factory-reset) device, you should be asked on account creation whether to enable it here as well. Answering with "yes" will restore several things even from ...

Other users have also reported that this feature has disappeared. One alternative would be to use SMS Scheduler, or GO SMS Pro (my fave SMS app).

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 ...

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.

Using Android-lost is easy; Install android lost from gPlay or Google Play (You already did this) go to the Homepage of Android Lost Log in using your Google Account! Use all the nice features, let your phone ring, locate it, erase all your data or change the pin, give the thieve or finder a message etc.

Have you wiped your caches recently, done an update or updated a lot of apps? It's possible that your phone needed to rebuild the Dalvik cache, which would add time to your boot as a one time only thing. You might have seen a screen saying "Updating Android" on your Note II when that was happening. If you reboot your phone and the startup time is back to ...

There might be some apps slowing the starup. Autostarts is an app which helps you see what apps run on boot. Unless you have root you'll not be able to make any changes though. It'll just be read only. See this: Autostarts Update: Startup Cleaner 2.0 is for unrooted phones. You can now stop an app from loading at startup.

What version of Android? As of JellyBean 4.2.2, you'd need a newer version of ADB, as there's a security implementation built into JB 4.2.2, in that, any "unauthorised" computer with USB cable plugged in, will show the device as offline, rendering any file transfer/copying etc useless. With the new version of ADB as downloaded from Google or for your ...

Get the ODIN package from here. Then use ODIN to restore to "True" Factory Stock. This will put you back to stock (but will not reset your flash counter). Then from there you can start and use ODIN to root the device again, flash CWM and flash custom ROMs. The modem/radio you linked to should be the radio that you will want to flash if you flash an N7100 ...

I use MyScript Stylus (Beta) by Vision Objects for german, english, and japanese handwriting input on my Note 8, and it works vey good. I use it e.g. for input to the Aedict dictionary to look up unknown Kanji, and recognition by myscript stylus is excellent. The only challenge is to write large Kanji not too slow, because else recogniton starts with left ...

I don't think there is a handwriting app, at the moment. At least, not for writing, although there are some for practicing Kana and Kanji. For typing, I currently use Google Japanese Input (10 MB, Free), it's reliable and seems solid to me. You have two choices: one is typing the Romaji, the other one is typing Kana directly. In this second way, you click ...
