Is there a way to block or remove built in applications on an android phone. I want to limit what you can do on the phone e.g. only call, text, email and use one or two third party applications. Is it possible to do that without rooting the phone?
I tried the MAK-DROID rom (thread) and it works great, but MAK-DROID didn't have the language pt-br (portuguese from Brazil). So I found the Aspire Rom (thread) and I give a try... and thats was a bad idea.
Now my fone even boot. It freezes on "GT-S5300 SAMSUNG" and vibrate a several times.
So, I boot on recovery and apply CWM again. On CWM I applied the MAK-DROID again, but didn't work.
After that I tried restore the my stock backup done with CWM. But even this didn't work. I received a message about EXTFS (or something like that) and impossibility of format the /system.
My final thought was try with Odin. So I follow the post #8 from MAK-DROID thread. I downlod the Odin and the S5300XXLF5 firmware. I open Odin and selected on PDA the *.tar.md5 file. But I received:
<ID:0/004> Added!! <OSM> Enter CS for MD5.. <OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable.. <OSM> Please wait.. <OSM> S5300XXLF5_S5300BTULF1_S5300XXLF5_HOME.tar.md5 is valid. <OSM> Checking MD5 finished Sucessfully.. <OSM> Leave CS.. <ID:0/004> Odin v.3 engine (ID:4).. <ID:0/004> File analysis..
So I tried again, this time with the pit file (S5300_coriemmc_0117.pit) on PIT option (when I select the pit file, automatically the option "Re-partition" is checked) and the *.tar.md5 file on PDA option. But I received:
<OSM> Enter CS for MD5.. <OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable.. <OSM> Please wait.. <OSM> S5300XXLF5_S5300BTULF1_S5300XXLF5_HOME.tar.md5 is valid. <OSM> Checking MD5 finished Sucessfully.. <OSM> Leave CS.. <ID:0/004> Odin v.3 engine (ID:4).. <ID:0/004> File analysis..
I still have access to CWM (the update.zip is accessible from recovery).
My Galaxy pocket wont turn on.Last 4 days I dropped my phone on our pail full of water on our garden. I didnt noticed it.I keep searching for it in our house but no hope. Last 2 days I found it and tried the rice technique to make it dry again. Today It wont turn on and I cant charge it. I borrowed the battery of my friend's SGP and my SGP turned on. But I tried my SGP battery on my friend's phone but my friends phone wont boot.My Smartphone: Samsung Galaxy Pocket (GT-S5300)
I have a samsung galaxy pocket (s5300). Once upon a time I rooted it without using odin and it worked
After I tried some custom roms. But in the end I used my CWM Backup file to restore my original rom. But the damn thing just doesn't wanna connect to kies any more. Now I wan't to reflash it's stock firmware with Odin and I'm using a nokia cable (i know that I should use the real thing but it isn't sold in my country + in the begining I didn't have any trouble with the cable and my father flashed an android 4.0.4 on his Samsung Galaxy Nexus using this same cable). So when i put my phone in download mode and connected it gives me unknown usb device. I downloaded the drivers installed them tried again, but the damn thing just doesn't associate with them.
Than I showed it the proper drivers manually ( you know device manager-->update driver-->sellect driver; you get the picture) and still nothing. And i really use Kies and want to fix the problem. What should I do.
Odin only detect my Samsung Galaxy Pocket S5300 when the power is off.
In a meanwhile: - Odin cannot detect in Download mode. - KIES is able to connect, detect & do the backup. - I've tried many versions of Odins. - Odin(s) is able to detect other phone (Galaxy Mini S5570). - PC could detect the driver and do the file transfer.
Why only when the power off id:com turns into yellow (or green in Odin 3) ????
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.
This shows up in searches, also in google search but the page is missing. Why was this thread deleted - is there any particular reason for removal if so whoever removed it- can they give a proper update for removal so atleast the people who have flashed will be fore warned if there were any issues as a result of flashing it.
I installed the stock firmware on my Galaxy Pocket(i.e., XXLF5 Version). Then this morning i downloaded the MakDroid ROM. and installed it through CWM recovery. But after that my phone just keep restarting to the SAMSUNG Logo and freezes there after vibrating several times..
I'm flashing my device with odin boy after successful flashing my device getting reboot itself... I fed to flash again & again. start up normally. Even i'm unable to flash through cwm recovery bcoz it does not shows the external memory card so that i can flash rom from ext card..img recovery which detects the ext card.
i am using Galaxy pocket and couple of days before i rooted my device and installed custom rom in it without creating back of it.so now i am facing some problems in it as device not recognized something like that.another thing when ever i am gng to install another rom in it,it says no space to unmount.method to retain my orignal rom without connecting via wire.
I want urgent cwm recovery for Galaxy Pocket Duos GT-S5302 in .img which can be flash through odin.... bcoz only i can go in download mode not in recovery mode. Even my device is dead & needs to be flashed.
i was doing standard stuff on my rooted samsung galaxy pocket, it had low battery so it ran out.I connected it to a charger, let it sit for few seconds and tried to start it.
it showed battery image for half-a-second and s5300 start up screen appeared, stayed there for approx three seconds and phone rebooted,and it did this again and again.Without charger it didn't even start. I connected it to a charger again and it was charging up for few hours - and something different happens.Phone now starts without charger,still s5300 screen,but then it goes black(screen doesn't go off,it is still on but with black pixels . Recovery mode doesn't even load,downloading mode seems to work,but i didn't download anything.
I had my Galaxy Pocket rooted and got the Jellyblast v3 rom, it was doin fine until I checked on the app OTA and check for update, a new update appeared which is the Nemesis 2.5 Hybrid-Holo Editon. It asked me to download it and so I did. When it was done, it asked me if I wanted to install it and so I did, and rebooted. Later I noticed that it was already boot looping. I tried pulling the battery off and to clockwork mode, with the proper procedure..the holds and presses, but still it just kept boot looping. Tried to connect it to the PC using the USB chord and yet it just shows the charging icon and sooner it turns to white. I tried Kies but still it turned white screen all over again; no device found.
I flash makdroid v2 then after some days i also flash vm00 v29 kernel,and everything was working fine,so yesterday i switch off my phone and when i try putting it on,i get kernel panic upload mode,and i cant boot to the OS and recovery.i can ony go to download mode,so i tried to flash stock rom with odin but, odin does not detect my phone.
I rooted my Galaxy Pocket lately and installed LCD modder just to try changing the dpi settings. i changed the stock 120 dpi to 160 and clicked save. the phone froze and i had to pull of the battery. after i restart all i get is a boot loop. i get 3 things
(1) s5300 logo (2) animated samsung logo (3) flashing samsung logo which appears just before the lock screen appears
( 1 and 2 vibrations during this) and then it loops all over again. as i understand the change i dpi is not supported for my device and it is not loading into the home screen. the solution seems to be editing the build.prop file to reassign the stock dpi value. but to access the file i have to get into adb mode and have the device available in the list. but since debugging mode was not selected before i essentially soft bricked my phone i am not able to access my device in adb mode. i am able to get into recovery mode tho.any way to edit the build.prop file from this situation??.....
