    santosh1802Once go to recovery mode by pressing Volume Up + Menu + Power Buttons simultaneously and try Wipe data/factory reset and then Reboot. If it doesn’t fix the issue try to update the firmware again and see.

    vijesh santosh1802 Vijesh, thanks for the reply!! I tried everything you said but it still didn’t work!! I have no clue what’s happening. Your advice will be appreciated!!

  4. santosh1802 says

    Hi Vijesh, It worked , the problem was on My ODIN interface I didn’t have CODE Tab, instead I had PDA tab. I included the file that was supposed to go under CODE in PDA and it worked. Thanks for your help!!

    santosh1802 vijesh Hi Vijesh – I tried to update from 2.3.6 to this 4.1.2. The process runs fine but when i check it after the update it still shows 2.3.6? Advise?

  6. santosh1802 says

    abdu84 If the update still shows 2.3.6 then for sure the changes didn’t take place. I had that problem before. The latest ODIN interface is a little different from what Vijesh used, I remember using PDA tab to load one of the firmware files mentioned by vijesh. Sorry, I don’t have access to the computer that I used to upgrade my firmware , so don’t remember everything I did

  7. ROAMS says

    Hey everybody, has anyone had problems with the phone function after this update? When making or receiving a phone call the screen turns off and I cannot access the phone until the other party hangs up. This is obviously not optimal in case you want to mute your phone or need to punch in digits on the call …. apart from that the update works fine, only flaw is that it renders the phone function useless temporarily. Any one has a link to the original GB install?
