General :: SCH-R950 - Back And Menu Buttons Stopped Working After Putting New Kernel
Feb 13, 2013
I picked up the kernel code released by Samsung for SCH-R950 (US Cellular) from opensource.samsung
Kernel version: 3.0.31
Build Number: JR003C.R950VXALJ1
I changed the kernel code to accommodate my changes, compiled and flashed using ODIN. The phone came up well but the back and menu buttons stopped working. I undid my changes, compiled and flashed again. This time again the back and menu buttons didn't work. So, it seems that the source code or the build instructions released by Samsung has some issue. The config file used was t0uscc_04_defconfig (released along with the code). I have attached the build config file.
Up until last week, I was using my original samsung earphones and some Philips earphones in my phone to listen to music without a problem in nearly 18 months.
Then I bought some Adidas Sennheiser earphones and plugged them in and now I can't hear the vocals and the music sounds tinny. I then put my samsung ones back in and same problem, even though they were working perfectly fine up until last week. Now any headphones I put in are not working properly but they work in other peoples phones and in my pc. I don't want to have to get a new phone. There must be a reason why they worked one day then as soon as put in the Adidas ones something changed. I have checked all the settings on the phone, have looked at heaps of blogs on the net and here, tried the WD40 on a cotton tip, tried cleaning out the headphone jack, tried pushing the headphones in all the way, tried turning off, taking out battery, turning off and on while headphones were in.
I've had the Telus Desire for just under a week now and everything about the phone was working great until yesterday when the side volume buttons just stopped working. I can't adjust the ringer volume on my home screens, or the media volume when I'm running any apps or the in call volume either. I feel like I've accidentally triggered some volume lock, but I've searched for answers and come up empty. Does anyone have any ideas as to what happened or how I can solve this? They were working just fine up until yesterday, and I don't believe I installed or changed anything since the buttons were working.
I've only had the X10a for about a week.Everything was working fine.However, I'm starting to have issues with the three menu buttons at the bottom.I will power up my phone, and the buttons will work for about 5 minutes.Then the two LED lights between the buttons will just randomly shine one time (even though I did not press a key) and go off.Once they go off, and I try to press a key, nothing works.The LEDs don't come on, and none of the buttons work.Does anyone have any idea what might be going on? This just started happening to me today.I really would appreciate any help, as I can't really use my phone right now in its current state!
I just visited the sprint store today and was testing an epic 4g and found that the bottom buttons were very unresponsive and I had to press them multiple times (sometimes up to 6 times) to get them to work. The guy working at sprint told me all the epic phones are that unresponsive. Is this true?
Does anyone know if its possible to have on screen buttons on the Desire for Home, Menu and Back as I'm (perhaps unnecessarily) worried about wearing the buttons out so would rather be using virtual buttons on screen (even if that means losing a little of the display area).
The "Menu", "Back" and "Search" buttons are not working for some reason? The "Home" button is the only one that works. I'm talking about the hard buttons on the bottom of the phone.This started today. Tried removing the battery and restarting the phone and that didn't seem to work either.Now Droid X not booting at all. Just stays on the "M" and nothing happens. Tried the Power button with home key press to get to recovery and nothing.
My girlfriend just got an x10 to match mine and for some reason every once and a while, the 3 buttons at the bottom completely stop working. At first I thought the phone froze but I could still use the on-screen keyboard and press whatever I wanted on screen but the 3 buttons wouldn't work oO This has NEVER happened with my phone.
After searching around a bit, I only found one solution which was "if you have a gel phone cover, take it off and see if it works." We tried that and it seems (so far, for an hour or so) that it's working fine. That doesn't make much sense to me as we have the same phone and the same cover - just a different colour. Anyone had this problem before? Should we be bringing the phone back or is there something I'm overlooking?
I have an android device running gingerbread (2.3.6) my power button (which also serves the purpose of unlocking the device) is broke so basically what am trying to do is to wake the device up using volume buttons instead of power. The things I've tried so far:
*a few apps from store like - button saviour /proximity unlock etc some of them do work but they drain battery like hell moreover are useless in waking from homescreen
*a Google search showed me many a guides on button remapping so i tried modifying /usr/keylayout files but there seems to be no effect whatsoever
What am looking for :
*i think remapping via kernel is ma last hope so I've synced sources and setup the environment but don't know how to proceed.
I have tried covering it up, playing with the phone in the dark but the backlight for the home, menu, back and search buttons will not come on. They worked when I got the phone on tuesday until wednesday night, then they cut out. I just did a factory reset and they are still not working. Does anyone have any suggestions?
1. I updated to stock 2.1 using the sprint update tool. 2. I followed the video tutorial to root the phone 3. then i used joey's page (http://www.joeyconway.com/sdx/custom/index.php) to install the his kernel (joeykrim-SDX-kernel v2.0.4 (includes root)).
I have done nothing else to the phone but this and removing a couple of bloatware apps (i checked the list of permitted deletions before i removed anything.) I have not installed a new recovery..at least i dont think that I did as part of one of the other operations I performed (as an aside, i am not really sure what the custom recovery is or what it is used for, so i didnt install it...i guess i need to read up more...)
So that is where I am..but i have a couple of questions.
1) i am now having issues with my wifi connection - the signal reception is very spotty in areas where i should have atleast 2 bars of reception, and the wifi often cuts out completely....Is there any know corellation between joey's kernel and this wifi issue? I have searched the forums and have found nothing that answers this.
2) Is there an easy way to get back to the stock kernel? I have read that i can get back to stock everything by using the sprint download center where I did my original 2.1 update. But is there a way to get back to just the stock kernel without wiping the phone?
This is my first android device and i'm loving it... but one thing that irks me is the use, or lack thereof, of the back button.
As I am navigating menus and options in the Settings, I cannot simply go back one menu using the back key. For example, if I go to Settings->Battery Manager->Battery Profile Options and want to go back to the Settings screen, I cannot.
Pushing the back button does nothing and I can only go back to the Settings menu by going Home, then re-entering.
Another quirk regarding the back button is when reading emails. Using a regular email account such as Hotmail, I cannot simply read an email and go back to the inbox using the button.
I have accidentally installed this baseband on my Sky Vega 820: "IM-A810K_ICS_Baseband FW212.zip".
Afterwards, when I installed CM10 jellybean ROM update via CWM recovery it installed correctly but did not load. The CM10 screen appears and the wheel rotates but then a blue screen appears showing "MDM Error" and the phone reboots automatically. This keeps on happening again and again and the ROM never loads.
I think the Kernel of my device is changed. I want to move back and install the original baseband for my device but I am unable to find it...
I want to activate my hero again but it's rooted so I can't take it into the store to have it activated.I want to put my phone back to the original factory settings but every time I try to sync it with HTC Sync it just keeps resetting itself. I tried downloading a copy of HTC Sync and I have even installed it from my phones SD card (I backed it up before I rooted). Every time I plug the phone into my computer then hit the HTC Sync under notifications the phone keeps rebooting and HTC Sync doesn't even recognize it (my computer does though) I am using a netbook running Windows XP.
trying to put stock mail.apk back on phone since gmail won't download attachments, trid this in recovery with system mounted and with phone just in disk drive mode with debugging on. can't get it either way. its in the root of my c drive.
I was in the middle of crossing files over to it from my computer, and then it froze and stop crossing over files, and crashed my computer, so I unplugged it and restarted my computer and it hasn't worked since. I did have some problems with my computer telling me that the card was only 530kb, so I stuck it in my phone and formatted it, and it was working and then that happened. I really don't want to have to buy another 32gb SD card.
My daughter's ZTE Supreme suddenly stopped working tonight. She uses a pattern on her touch screen to unlock it, and the touch screen wasn't registering. When I took it to look at it, I noticed that the phone was overheating. I popped the battery, let it cool down completely, and tried again. Same thing - unresponsive touch screen and it pretty much immediately overheated.
My camera will not start up from any of the camera app "buttons". This happened sometime around/after ICS was installed. Is this a problem with ICS or, have I got a broken phone app? What did I do besides go to the Verizon store - that is a last ditch effort.
Just Updated my Nexus 4 to 10.2.1 from 10.1.3 and now I constantly get "unfortunately, Google Play Services have stopped."
Also my Play store was missing from the phone so I installed the one that comes with Lucky Patcher (modded one) but that didn't work. Tried un-installing Play services and re installing it (downloaded the apk).
I have just purchased Samsung Galaxy S3 Clone (Mediatek 6575). Its Android 4.2 Jelly bean.It was working perfectly fine only had issue that it's wifi was catching signals really weak. I mistakenly factory reset my phone which cause to no boot up animation. Its just blank when i turn on or off my phone. To fix that i rooted my phone as to get into root files i need to root it.
Since i rooted my phone the issue i am having is it says "System UI Stopped working" , "Touch wizard stopped working". Now what should i do, i am really worried.
I tried going into the CWM recovery but its not going, it was going in stock recovery before now its not even going in the stock recovery its just all blank.Now what should i do, its okay if i don't get the bootup logo/ shutdown logo but atleast i have to remove these errors. How can i unroot my phone ?
My Phone hardware is Mediatek 6575 , android 4.2 jellybean.
When the error "System UI stopped working" appears the background becomes black and the notification bar disappears.
