Samsung Vibrant : Phone Doesn't Boot Up After Update / How To Fix?

Oct 9, 2010

So I have updated my phone through T-mobile yesterday after I received service message and the phone never got past the "samsung vibrant" screen, it stays here after it plays the welcoming melody. After that, it simply won't start. I have tried hard reboot, factory reset, nothing worked. Did this happen to some of you as well? Any ideas how to get my phone working again?

Samsung Vibrant :: Phone Doesn't Know It's Own Number / How To Fix?

Sep 12, 2010

This is probably a dumb question but this is my first phone that uses a sim card. If I go to settings and status for phone number it says unknown. On my previous Android phone with verizon it knew my number. The Google voice app doesn't seem to be able to read my number either but the phone itself seems to work fine.

Samsung Vibrant :: Phone Freezing And Then Consequently Restarting To Boot Screen / Stop This?

Nov 8, 2010

So my Vibrant has been freezing on me and then consequently restarting to the state right after the Galaxy S boot screen, where it shows no signal and searching for media on the SD, etc.

Today it did some really really weird stuff!
I was using Google nav and then all of a sudden the screen froze, but it didn't reset or anything. The screen it froze was not good looking either, it looks like it's faded with scan lines.

I attached a picture, sorry for the low quality, but only had a friend's Pre to document it before I had to do a battery pull. But you can see the scan lines on the screen faintly.

Samsung Vibrant :: Manually Update An Android Phone

Oct 8, 2010

I just bought myself a brand-spanking new Samsung Vibrant from T-mobile the other day. I was then informed that the JI6 update was being pushed out via OTA. Only problem is, my plan was to use this thing via wifi only (I bought a 1 month voice-only Flex Plan to activate it). According to T-mobile, if I want any updates, my only choice is to switch over to a monthly data plan (big old $70 a month bill). So I turn to the experts on these forums... is there a way to install these updates manually over wifi? Or is it time to take the phone back?

Samsung Vibrant :: Installed The OTA Update - Now Phone Is Having Some Serious Lag Issues

Oct 20, 2010

I installed the new OTA update for my Vibrant, and now my phone is having some very serious lag issues. I did not have any problems with lag until after this update, and now my phone is constantly lagging, even when I'm texting. Is anyone else having this problem? As for the GPS fix, I don't really see a difference. The GPS on google maps is still off, and as slow as ever, and the Navigation app works for awhile, and then sometimes will go crazy... What exactly was this "update" supposed to fix?

Samsung Vibrant : Samsung Vibrant System Update / Released OTA Discussion

Sep 24, 2010

Ok, so I may be leaving the USA soon. I plan on unlocking my phone and going out of the country with it. I don't know how long I may be gone.maybe years, so here are a few questions.

1. I plan on going South Africa. According to this site, both the phone and 3g should work perfectly right? GSM World Coverage Map- GSM Country List by frequency bands

2. I have seen an app to unlock the Vibrant. It is by DaGentooBoy from XDA. Its called Samsung Galxy S Unlock. Would it be better for me to use this app or to just request T-Mobile to give me the unlock code. Are there any pros or cons for using either method.

3. If the OTA update or Froyo don't come out before I am gone, will I be able to get an OTA over wifi while I am in South Africa. Just to clarify, I will be using a local sim over there. I will discontinue from tmobile when I leave the US I know nothing of rooting. This is my first smartphone, so if possible I would be hesitant of doing any updates via the computer that requires me to loose all my info. I have too many apps and saved games and settings to download again so its just a scary thought of loosing it all.

4. Will google navigation work overseas. I have heard people say yes and no. I am hesitant to buy apps like co-pilot as they cost a lot and have mixed reviews, so I wanted to find out about this.

Samsung Vibrant :: Can't Boot Into ClockworkMod

Oct 14, 2010

So I recently flashed a ROM (Bionix 1.9 if it makes a difference), but now, anytime I try to go into ClockworkMod for any reason, it gives me an error saying "cannot open /cache/update.zip" and loads up stock recovery instead. When I look at that directory using Root Explorer, there isn't an update.zip in there. Can I just get this update.zip from someone who has clockworkmod working and stick that in there?

Samsung Vibrant : Can't Seem To Boot Into Recovery Mode

Aug 22, 2010

I followed the instructions on the how-to root sticky, but when I power down the device and then hold vol down+up simultaneously and power it back up to get to recovery mode (to root), it boots normally. I've done this 7 times now, with two fingers holding down the volume buttons (one each) and then pressing the power button until the device shows signs of life.

Samsung Vibrant :: Deleting Shortcuts On Application Pages Doesn't Seem To Work

Sep 10, 2010

Deleting shortcuts on the application pages doesn't seem to work.

I press the shortcut icon I want to delete, hold, wait for the vibration, drag to the garbage icon, and release. When I go back to the application page the shortcut icon is still there.

This technique works perfectly on the home pages, just not on the application pages.

General :: Galaxy S3 - Phone Doesn't Boot?

May 10, 2014

I have a ~1.5 year old Samsung Galaxy S3 (North American) rooted, with Cyanogenmod 11 installed.

Ever since installing CM11, my phone has been restarting itself with some regularity.

Today, with over half the battery left, the phone seemingly turned itself off. I do not believe this is an issue with the cyanogenmod OS and I also don't believe the issue is related to the restarting I've been experiencing. These restarts, in the vast majority of occasions, started with a brief freeze, then screen turning off, before the phone automatically starting up again. However, this time, the phone did not freeze before the screen went black, and the phone did not restart itself. I repeatedly tried pressing the power button to unlock, and when that didn't work, I tried long-pressing to either turn the phone off or back on. When that also failed to work, I pulled the battery, and put it back in. The Samsung logo came up, and then the Galaxy S3 logo with the Cyanogenmod logo came up, then the screen went black again.

And this is where I'm at currently. After the screen goes black, I can't get it to come back on. Long pressing the power button does not turn it back on. Only when I pull the battery and put it back in, does the boot process start. Every time, during the first few seconds of the boot process, the phone turns itself off. Sometimes it only lasts until the Samsung logo, sometimes to the GS3/CM logo.

If I plug the phone in, with the battery inserted, I briefly see a battery on the screen, but again, the phone shuts down.

If I plug the phone in, with the battery out, the LED turns red, the phone vibrates, but nothing happens, and the LED goes out.

I've read about power buttons getting stuck, but this doesn't seem to be the issues since my phone does not go into a boot loop sequence.

I've tried leaving the battery out for an hour or so, but there is no change.

I've also tried pressing power+home+vol down and power+home+vol up, and they seem to work, until again, the phone shuts off. So one of these combinations leads me to warnings about changing OS before shutting down after about the same number of seconds, and the other leads me to the boot logo with the blue text on the top left corner before shutting down.

To me, this doesn't seem to be an issue with software, but with the phone staying powered..somehow.

Samsung Vibrant :: Why Manual Not Update To JI6?

Oct 9, 2010

This is the OTA JI6 not leaked, etc. It's super easy, don't be intimidated but DO read and follow the step by step instructions. rhcp 0112345 over at XDA has posted the OTA update JI6. Remember rhcp0112345 spent time and money to bring this update to us so it would be a nice gesture to donate $1 to his paypal if you avail yourself of his work. https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?

Samsung Vibrant :: GPS Ceased To Work After OTA Update

Oct 26, 2010

After struggling along with everyone else with my GPS, I finally got the OTA update a little over a week ago. After updating, GPS seemed to be working better (not perfectly, but better). Then yesterday out of the blue it completely ceased to work. It stays permanently "searching for GPS".

Before getting the update I did use the LBSTestMode work around, but am now unable to access the settings in the same way I did before to reset to original settings...perhaps it is the workaround settings causing the problem now? (And without GPS that could become literal at any moment!)
