General :: Lost Many Features On Samsung Galaxy Grand GT-I9082 After OS Upgrade To 4.2.2

Mar 29, 2014

After I "upgraded" my OS to 4.2.2 using the auto-upgrade feature on my Samsung Galaxy Grand GT-I9082, I've lost a huge number of features, including the following. Unfortunately, I didn't note my original OS, nor have I taken any kind of backup of it (not that I know how to!).

SETTINGS

- Multi-window option has been disabled, and the multi-window toolbar has disappeared.

LOCK SCREEN

- Camera, Gmail and one more App that were available as icons on the lock screen are no longer available.

CALL SCREEN

- Earlier on receiving a call, I could send a message with several pre-set options such as "I'm in a meeting", "I'll call you later", I'm driving", etc. This is no longer available.

PHONE

- "Favorites" option has disappeared. This is a BIG inconvenience!

- When I go to "Phone", I always get the "keypad" page. Earlier, I used to get whatever page I was last on (keypad / logs / favorites)

- The text size has mysteriously (and unnecessarily) increased, in the "Logs" page.

CONTACTS

- "Favorites" option has disappeared; I can't mark any contacts as "favorites".

- Long-pressing on any contact would give me several options, including sending contact details to anyone by message. This, and many other options, have vanished after the upgrade. At present, there are only three options: 'Edit', 'Delete', and 'Add to Group' in the main "Contacts" page, and only 'Remove Member' when viewed in the "Groups" page.

- The number of data fields in each contact in 'edit' mode have drastically reduced. Most importantly, due to removal of the "Notes" field, I have lost all the info I had entered in there: miscellaneous info that didn't fit into any other field.

CALLING

- When a call is being dialled or is in progress, I can't turn on the Bluetooth because the button has been removed from the 'Call' page. Earlier, I could quickly turn on the Bluetooth and switch to it even as the call was being dialled or was in progress.

S PLANNER

- The number of fields in each event in the calender has been drastically reduced. Most importantly, I have lost the ability to set reminders, as the 'Reminders' option has been removed. I can set events, but not reminders for them.

- The left button on my phone (the 'options' button) has no functions in the 'date' and 'event' pages.

GALLERY

- I can't rename folders in the gallery any more.

- More than half the options (available by pressing the left button) have disappeared.

WIDGETS, APPS & OTHER FACILITIES

- The "Alarm" widget has been removed, and I really miss it. Now I have to laboriously open the 'clock' app, scroll to the desired alarm and activate it. Earlier, I had set three or four commonly used alarms in the widget and I could set them directly from my desktop!

- Earlier, if I long-pressed the right-hand button ('Back' button) of my phone, I got a hidden pull-out menu that contained the icons of a whole lot of useful Apps that I could access quickly. Also, this pull-out menu permitted multi-windows (splitting the screen between two different Apps). This pull-out menu is no longer available.

(b) Download & restore a better (not necessarily 'higher') version of Android on my phone?

(c) Backup my OS, or set a restore point, as can be done in PCs (if that's possible)?

I have a samsung galaxy grand and I so like it but I am quite disappointed as some of its features aren't working. For instance, the automatic feature for making calls. The instruction says that if you put the device on your ear, it will automatically prompt you to contacts where you can make calls.

General :: Connecting USB Flash Drive To Samsung Grand Duos I9082

Mar 4, 2013

I have recently upgraded and rooted my Grand Duos i9082 (currently on Stock v4.1.2 AMB3), and was browsing through the "Root Explorer" app, when I noticed some folders under /mnt/ and /storage/ listed as UsbDriveA, UsbDriveB, UsbDriveC. I can connect a USB Flash drive to my phone, and use it as an external storage media? I believe this function is available on Samsung Note & S3 as an inbuilt function (i.e. without having to install any external application). I would like to know if the same function is available on my Grand Duos.

General :: Galaxy Grand Duos Upgrade (ROMs)

Dec 19, 2013

I'm now facing a problem with my Galaxy Grand Duos. It was initially on the 4.1.2 stock ROM. I tried many ROMs for 4.2.2 until I found the ROM that best suits my need which is the RR (Resurrection ROM) and it's now working normally, but the problem is that now, I need to install the 4.2.2 (leaked firmware), I found the files and followed all the tuts I found, but in videos and such they get the message "success" and I get the message "fail", I don't know what's the reason behind this, I tried changing USB ports, changing the cable, I tried nearly everything, but no avail. So basically, I now need 4.2.2 (leaked) or any KitKat (4.4) ROM, I want Carbon or SlimKat, but both require coming from a KitKat ROM (which is not my case) or 4.2.2 TW ROM, I don't think RR (Resurrection Remix) is a TW ROM, so what should I do? I need to know one of them, the KitKat or the 4.2.2 (leaked).

Couldn't find any particular section for Galaxy Grand so posted the Question here. I've been following all the steps given in the tutorials on XDA and youtube and many other sites to install CWM in Galaxy Grand, but to my misfortune, whenever I complete the process and try to open CWM using VOLUME UP+POWER+MENU button, the ANDROID SYSTEM RECOVERY <3e> menu opens and then I could do nothing.

I've tried installing CWM 9 times and also tried removing the batteries.

What should I do???

General :: Galaxy Grand Duos (GT-I9082L) Won't Flash The ROM

Mar 18, 2014

my galaxy grand was rooted and had the Resurrection Remix custom ROM, but now I want to reset my binary counter, unroot and flash the stock ROM. I started by downloading the .tar.md5 file (stock ROM), then I loaded it in Odin v3.09 as the AP (which is the PDA option but changed its name I think) and flashed, but it says fail at the beginning and now I only see "Firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in Kies & try again". I already installed Kies and tried this, but after a really long time when the progress bar reached 70%, it said Dll load fail and this was the second time I do it through Kies, but no avail and yes, I'm pretty sure that I have the ADB drivers installed. I flashed CWM touch recovery and it works good, so now I can enter Download mode and CWM mode (or whatever it's called) only. I want to flash back to the Stock ROM which I already have.

General :: Samsung Galaxy Ace 2 Not Start After Firmware Upgrade

Oct 26, 2012

yesterday I flashed my Galaxy Ace 2 with the JellyCreamMessi10 Rom.

The update worked fine, but not so the Rom. It looked quite well, but didn't detect my SIM Card.

So I wanted to downgrade my phone again to the original firmware with Odin, which also worked well until the phone said "Now rebooting...".

Nothing happened, the phone did not reboot, so that I powered it off and tried to power it back on.

Unfortunately, the Ace 2 does not react on any button, display stays completely black.

Tried several things like connecting the phone to USB and inserting the battery, afterwards, but nothing happens.

For me it looks like my phone is broken, but how I can get it back to live?
