Seems Like your Lock/Power Off button might have been stuck. Get it checked or keep constantly pressing it during boot up. Might just help.

Just a suggestion: have a look at MyLocalAccount from FJ Softwaredevelopment. This app does represent a local contact account. This is helpfully for devices without local contact account (f.e. Nexus series) if you don't want to sync your contacts with Google servers. These contacts can be synced then f.e. with MyPhoneExplorer to your PC.

A great place to start would be on the ROM list for your device on XDA. There are many options available, so which one you want to install comes down to user preference. Please note that it will be required that you root your device, so proceed with caution as your warranty will be void. Your other alternative is building it yourself from source.

Yes, flashing a factory image will completely wipe your device and will flash each partition back to 'stock', meaning all system apks will be back to their original version. If Google Play Services is the only app that you need to restore you can simply uninstall any updates by going to Settings > Apps > Google Play Services and clicking the 'Uninstall ...

Mine won't connect to mobile data when I toggle it on, but if I leave it toggled on and reboot, it connects on reboot.

I've had a similar experience: I need to select settings, then under 'Wireless & networks' hit the 'More' option, then select Mobile Networks, then enable Data Roaming, and then switch it off again. And bang, my mobile data works again. Somewhat similar to hopping on one leg and chanting. The problem that remains is that every time I walk out of range ...

Go to settings>apps and scroll down to Google Play Services. You can uninstall updates from there. And yes, flashing the factory image would help, but is probably overkill for your problem.

You can root it easily by using the Framaroot application. Here is a link to the XDA thread, where you can find more information on the app. XDA Thread Link for Framaroot app

From what I can tell, the multiuser feature DOES drain quite a lot of battery. Here is a screenshot of my battery stats - I have not logged in as the other user since my last full charge. Click image for larger version

1.What is the easiest way to soft brick an android phone Flash the Incompatible (another android Device) Rom. and i can later revive for revive later : Flash the Stock Rom of your device and then you can use the phone.

Data is stored on the /data partition, while "phone storage", /storage/sdcard0, is user available memory where you put images, music etc. If you want to have more space for apps, you need to increase the /data partition. If you want to put the data on the external SD card, you'll have to further modify your system.

You should be able to repair your phone with Odin 3.07. THIS WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY! Go to www.sammobile.com Then go to firmwares. Search the right firmware for your device. Download Odin (do a google search). Extract Odin.zip Put the md5/tar in the PA/PDA slot. Click on start/begin/OK. Wait a few minutes and your will reboot.

Try a different sim card. Check if the APN settings are right. Check for a bug fix OTA update. If the steps above didn't help please leave a comment.

In my case the problem was the same and happened after downgrading from the really slow lollipop to kitkat and rooting again. Formatting or factory reset did not help. The solution was to boot into recovery (TWRP) after flashing a ROM and rooting, and there change the file system type. For example I switched from the recognized 8GB ext4 to FAT (this ...

I've not found an answer for this but I've flashed another stock from SAMMOBILE using odin which did the trick. Now I can see the contact names properly when I receive a call.

It should, but if it doesn't, it won't hurt to manually flash your stock firmware with Odin. It's also worth noting that Kies sometimes has trouble recognizing devices which no longer boot up normally (speaking from experience); in which case you would be better off using Odin or Heimdall.

Figured it out! Turns out I had failed to install busybox, my mistake!

What you're seeing is probably not Android System itself, but rather MediaServer, which in case you download a corrupted file might cause problems. I would recommend trying to delete whatever you downloaded in the past few days, and in case that doesn't work, perform a factory reset.

I don't think root is actually required for Custom Recoveries. You can boot into recoveries without flashing them. I've seen it done before. I don't know how to do it but Google can surely help you. A Toolkit is available for my phone which let's me boot into TWRP or CWM without flashing them and can easily do full NANDroid Backups.


1

Yes, you can, by taking a full NANDroid backup. This takes a backup of everything, including the app data, the accounts, the system, etc. with the exclusion of the files stored on the SD cards (both internal and external). Such NANDroid backups are usually taken with the help of a custom recovery, like the CWM (ClockWorkMod) recovery and the TWRP (TeamWin ...

First, without DNS the network connection won't be much helpful to you: you will need DNS to resolve host names to IPs – or entering something like www.google.com into the browser's address bar will just give you an error. Which does not mean you cannot use a DNS server other than Google's. From your homescreen: Press the Menu key, select Settings Go to ...

The feature you have requested (Expandable Volume Control) is present in GravityBox (Lollipop). You can find it at the Xposed Repository . You can download it directly here (3.54 MB). However, do note that the Xposed Framework is still in Alpha, so some features of the module might not work properly. If you find any, do report them at the official XDA ...

If there is an official update available for your device you should update. There are bugs in every piece of software so I shouldn't worry about it. There may be some specific cases where not updating is better but if you are not sure what you should do then upgrading may be the best choice. If you are really happy with your phone currently, don't care ...
