in TWRP go to advanced > terminal, then create /cache/recovery with mkdir /cache/recovery solved the problem for me

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!

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-...

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 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/...

Bootloader itself will get updated with some firmware updates. Take the Galaxy S6 as an example - the firmware G920FXXU4DPJN comes with bootloader level 4, while G920FXXU5EQF1 comes with bootloader level 5. Samsung has made it so you can only flash the same or a higher level of bootloader by official means, so as to prevent downgrading and exploiting ...

It should be visible within "Disk Management" (diskmgmt.msc) in Windows. From there you can create, delete, modify and format partitions.

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 ...

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

Apologise for my ignorance as I dont have a Galaxy Note II but since you have the SAMSUNG Android ADB Interface I am presuming when you run command (and get this from google too) adb.exe devices Do you at least see a Serial Number?? I had a similar issue with my Nexus 5 and noticed I too have the same drivers however for my computer to connect to the ...

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 ...

Open Messages, tap the Options button, and then select the first option from top in the list which is "Configuration messages". In this way, you will be able to see all the configuration messages.

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. my ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

AFAIK the most common standard here is FAT32 (which usually ships as format of the only partition with new cards). So using that, you should be on the safe side. On the other hand: If you have no plans using the card via a card reader on Windows machines, you could also try EXT3 or EXT4. Both should be supported by CM (and also most other ROMs), as with ...

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 ...

At last, I found a solution. The problem was with the entry in sports section in Google Now. It can also happen with entry in stocks according to this article. Resetting the Google Now data fixed the issue. Steps I did: Open Google Now and click the magic wand on the bottom right which opens a Customize Google Now screen. Click the sports section and ...

TWRP for Samsung Galaxy Note 2 N7100 has the official version of TWRP for your device. It also lists out installation steps using App Odin dd method This you tube link is also helpful http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=a7z8W6b2CrQ Flashing Stock I would suggest you go the odin way. Fool proof way is to first flash stock and then TWRP, since you have a SIM ...

It is most likely GT-N7105, the international version. You can find the other models in Wikipedia.

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.

For Me the solution was similar but different. I had nothing under the accessibility options excepted "Talkback" turned off. I turned it on then off and VOILA! it brought back the arrows.

Root your note 2 Install titanium backup Either uninstal or freeze Knox.apk and all associated processes through titanium backup. As AWLAYS, make a complete backup before any changes.

Turns out it was the carrier that messed up something as it seems I wasn't the only one to get this issue, so I didn't really use all that data.

Go under Settings - Sound Volumes -> check Silent mode affects notifications. Click OK Under Notifications, check Vibrate on notification - In vibrate mode, all notifications will vibrate regardless of individual app settings. Hope that helps.

Found it. I remembered installing a beta app from Cyanogenmod called Screencast which can be used to record the screen if you have a CM 11 ROM. When you start recording there is an option in the notification bar to Show Touches. I had enabled this when playing with the Screencast app, and it continues to track touch input even after you stop the recording. ...

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 ...

It's on main drive of your phone (at lest it was in my case), named something like .voice.3ga Just plug in your phone to PC, an run search for .3ga file type. Hope this helps.
