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!
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 ...
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.
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.
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 ...
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 mobile usb modem
Samsung Android ADB Interface
Now, the interface still shows the "Connected as a ...
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
Install Custom Recovery and reboot into it and activate USB Mass Storage
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 ...
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
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 ...
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 ...
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)
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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 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 ...
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. my ...
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 ...
