General :: Galaxy S4 - Apps Not Working After Firmware Upgrade On Linksys Router?
Apr 21, 2014
I have a Galaxy s4 (i9500) and a linksys cisco e900 router
Recently my isp asked me to upgrade the firmware
Until I updatee my firmware everything was working fine
After the firmware upgrade I am experiencing the following issues:
At the beginning when I conmect to my wifi everything works fine for the first 5 min, all apps work flawlessly, then suddenly my phone only uploads date (up arrow only) but no down arrow n then my apps such as whatsapp, fb messenger, etc do not recieve any data until I goto those apps and stay in there for about a min. Then I get all my whatsapp messages sent about a min ago . But my browser seems fine..and the speed there is good.
My Droid X won't connect to my Linksys router properly. I have it WPA encrypted but when I go to connect to it with my phone it shows the phone is seeing it as a WEP encryption. I tried manually changing it but it seems like that messes with it even more. I prefer not to change the encryption to WEP because of it's flaws and can easily be hacked. Maybe is there something I need to do to get my Droid to pick it up right?
how to stop the annoying media scan on this Galaxy S Captivate, which included tutorials on rooting and getting sdk files.
Now I would like to upgrade to the latest firmware. I found out that I needed something called Kies, so I downloaded it and followed the instructions - hooked up the phone after checking debugging, etc, but I got an error that said I don't have authorization or something. I started researching a bit, but got quickly overwhelmed with things I'd never heard of like "Odin".
I bought LG VU II (F200L) in perfectly working condition, it almost new. After installing LG PC suite and connecting it said new firmware update is available so I proceeded which was done successfully but since then touch screen is not working properly.
Usually it responds ok but main issue is back button is not working anymore, and sometimes when I press power button to unlock screen it responds very weird and not so responsive as well as sometimes doesnt responds or opens apps that I havent even clicked.
I tried to restore, emergency restore, LG Flash tools and used correct KDZ files to flash roms successfully but nothing seems to resolve this issue.
I am using Samsung Galaxy S3, model GT-I9300. So I accidentally deleted a huge file in my phone earlier and I was trying to recover the file by rooting the phone and using this apps called DiskDigger. I obviously made a huge mistake as I have now made it worse. Long story short, I've used tips from multiple websites and youtube videos so now my phone is basically forever showing this right now
After reading a few threat, some people suggested to hold the volume down + home + power but this made no difference. I can't switch it off, it will blank out for 3 sec and go back to saying "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies and try again". I installed Kies but the device will not connect to my laptop for some reason. I have uninstall and reinstall Keis a few times. I've tried every single USB port on my laptop and even the extended USB port but none of them work too. I used my sister's android for Kies and it's working fine, so the problem is my phone.
I have already downloaded ODIN 3.07. I read in one of the thread that I have to put in a .tar file. Another person had the same problem as me (Stuck with 'Firmware Upgrade Issue') and it seemed to be working for him but I don't know what the .tar file is.
Yesterday I was having fun trying out the secret codes (like *#*#4636#*#*) and tried out the touch screen code. Then clicked on update (firmware).
Then the touch was not working. I tried taking out battery and putting it back on. Tried factory reset after backing up data with Kies. Tried rooting the simplest way. Tried to flash using Odin with a recovery and pit file. Still nothing is working.
My 9300+ (chinese mtk6577) is dead... I have to updated wrong firmware and my phone will don't turn ON again, when I use the SP Flash Tool appears the message: "Firmware Upgrade could not be executed without PMT. Please "Download" ONLY first to create PMT on the target!
My internal partition is corrupted and i can't create PMT because my phone don't Turn On, but my USB is recognized by windows.
My phone wont boot up its a samsung exhibit 4g and it running gingerbread 2.3.3 it says firmware upgrade failed tried everything only post if you have a link or know what your doing im now stuck on blackberry with out my presious bikerace game.
I would like to know if it is possible to upgrade/downgrade an android phone (samsung mostly) with official firmwares without the need to root? The reason is that some testing is needed on these devices and only with official firmwares it would be valid. And at will it would be nice to be able to switch versions for different test purposes.
Recently upgraded from 4.2.2 to 4.3 on my Galaxy S4 and since then the Hands-free turns on automatically every few minutes. It is annoying, especially since I do not use it. Tried to turn it off but it comes back by itself. The people at AT&T ddisabled it but it came back after a few hours.
after changing some router settings (like the number of the channel) my SGS2 on 4.0.3 ICS doesn't connect anymore. WiFi itself is working fine, except the AP of the router i changed. Deleting all AP information and reentering all WPA2 data will change nothing. In my eyes the phone is not forgetting AP data completely when you try to delete an AP entry.
i previously Flashed a custom OS onto my phone, Cyanogen Mod 11, when i got bored of it i decided to download the Stock touchwiz android for my Samsung Galaxy S4 i9505, i proceeded to download Odin307, once i had the OS and Odin i opened Odin in Administrator, i choose my file which was extracted and i used the PDA option to choose it, all was fine until it encountered this error (<ID:0/006> Complete(Write) operation failed.)
once that failed i tried to boot the phone where it says "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. please select recovery mode ion Kies and try again" SO basically i can still get into the Download mode and can get to the Firmware upgrade error screen, that is all, is there a way to fix it? ive tried countless times to flash the stock touchwiz but get the same error message on odin!
I have an old Samsung I-997 Infuse, running 2.2 Froyo, and rooted. After installing the latest YouTube version, my YouTube no longer works.. I'm guessing because of an incompatibility with the old Froyo version. When I try to view any YouTube, from the app. or even from the web, I get a simple announcement which states "An Error Occurred".I've tried the normal uninstall, reinstall. Is there a way to install an older version of YouTube?
I updated my phone earlier today to jelly bean 4.3. Since then, I have stopped receiving network. The EMEI number doesn't show in the device info either. Tried restarting, taking out the sim card and putting it back in. Nothing works. It says this right after restarting, "currently unable to download, try again later". I bought my phone from Qatar and I am currently using it in UK (t-mobile) if that makes any difference, but it was working perfectly fine before.
I'm trying to understand how end-users will upgrade their device firmware from Android ver. X to X+1. A new build of Android contains system.img and userdata.img (among others). system.img is read-only, so I don't see any problem with simply replacing the user's existing copy. However, simply overwriting userdata.img with a newer version would destroy all of an end-users application data (wouldn't it?).
I'm trying to understand how this process will work for our Android- based device. It seems that the designers of Android must have had a plan for doing this without the user losing all of their data, but I can't find any documentation about this. Googling for this information yields lots of pages containing hacker- level instructions (e.g. adb commands) -- still no idea how this process was envisioned to work for average end-users.
Hi - I just bought a Desire and can see that the Calendar program is not as good as it should be.
1. If a multiple day all day event is tapped when the user is on the month view, the next window simply shows the event on that day as an all day event. It should really show the start and end dates of the event. Currently the only way I can find to see this information is by editing the event then cancelling the edit screen.
2. If a "non-all day" event is created that starts on Monday @ 11:00am and ends on thursday at 3:00pm, then when I tap on the event in month view it shows the event happening SEPARATELY on every day between 11am and 3pm. It should say Monday 11am - Thursday 3pm. Currently the only way I can find to see this information is by editing the event then cancelling the edit screen. These are hard to explain but easy to see when you try it on the phone.
I think these issues need to be fixed in any software/firmware upgrade that there may be. Loving the phone though. Glad I went for it instead of iPhone
I have flashed my x10a with flashtool and x10_2.3_aro_2.ftf firmware. But after the flashing is finished, my phone screen touch is not working. What can I do now? I am unable to install xrecovery to install another rom bcoz screen touch isn't working. So I can't install any custom ROM.
I get told that there is an update waiting in OTA , so I let it download, reboots, starts to install, then fails, reboots, tells me to try via KIES or contact Samsung. But when I go into Kies... there is no button to let me update my firmware... it just tells me my current firmware version, nothing else like it usually would...
Not custom ROM, no root, battery 100%. Wifi/HSPA makes no difference..My friend has the same phone with the same firmware and it works fine with him?
My cute galaxy ace was dead after flashing the wrong firmware by accedent (galaxy 551 firmware) now i'm not able to enter the download mode when i try to boot it on it just turns on the two virtual buttons, any way to flash to flash without entering to download mode or using another program ??
