So I have had an iphone 4 for years now, its jailbroken and has been my main phone forever. However I needed an upgrade badly, so I purchased an unlocked galaxy s6. I have so much data on the old iphone I must move, contacts, pictures, music, and I dont use icloud. So I purchased an otg cable, which worked perfectly for transferring data off of my ipad, but not my iphone.
When I connect the iphone to my galaxy, it pulls up smart switch. However it stays on the "connecting to ios device" screen. When I pull the notifications bar down on my galaxy, it says "camera connected". So my question is how can I prevent my galaxy s6 from recognizing the iphone as a camera, so smart switch can connect to it to transfer my data?
As most of you are familiar with Samsung's latest iteration of Samsung Kies, the Smart Switch, it is able to "unroot" most of the rooted devices including the Galaxy S6 (Tried it with my rooted G920F). By using the function somewhere in the "Emergency software recovery and initialization" tab, it will opt the user to upgrade/reinstall the existing software therefore unrooting your device.
My question is - how about using this method to remove the custom recovery (i.e. CWM or TWRP), thus reverting back to stock recovery?
So after installing xstrestolite custom rom, Smart Switch on my pc doesnt connect to the phone. Usb storage works just fine, and the pc detects that it is Galaxy s6 connecting, but Smart Switch says "failed to connect to device". Now I do have the backup file in my pc, so could it be possible to move it to my phone and restore it from there? If so, how?
So just in the last few days my phone has started having some issues. I got a Powerbot wireless charger(PB1020) about the same time I got my phone at release. It's worked fine , and still does as far as I know. But know, after my phone is fully charged, when I remove it from the charger it's pretty warm(this is a new development, not really had it get very warn on the wireless charger before) and then it begins to connect and disconnect from the wifi repeatedly. I'm talking like every second it switches. I keep seeing people saying to turn off Smart Network Switch, but I did that the second day I had my phone, and it's still off, so obviously its something else.
Not sure where im going wrong really, i used odin to flash a firmware, i was expecting it to wipe the phone completely which is what i wanted it to do because i wanted to start afresh with a new firmware but after installing i still has the remnants of the previous rom on like the theme didn't change, it didn't even bring up the initial setup screens. i did not change any of the Odin tickboxes, am i missing something?
Anyway as usual I don't do lot of research (I'm stupid I guess), so first I flash CF-Auto-Root via Odin and... surprise phone is stuck on boot logo, so I don't panic too much , I install TWRP via Odin and everything is ok, then I download a stock firmware 3483.1 MB and try to flash it via odin but oh surprise, it fails, on the phone screen say
W REV. CHECK FAIL. DEVICE: 2 BINARY: 1
and on odin :
Odin engine v(ID:3.1005).. File analysis.. SetupConnection.. Initialzation.. Get PIT for mapping.. Firmware update start.. SingleDownload. sboot.bin NAND Write Start!! FAIL!
I thought I'd start a new thread to prevent going too far off topic on another thread that I asked this question on."If you want to go down that path you are better to root, unlock (via the market app) and then flash the XEU to your branded phone, and it will debrand it.It's all in a sticky on the Development link.EDIT: I've been using this root method and works well.For me downloading this file worked best and selected he 'touch' option http://clockworkmod.com/rommanagerTo avoid confusion it's this download: 184.108.40.206"Completed the above as advised by greenman and am now rooted (superuser installed and rooted apps work OK), but when trying apps to unlock phone I get no luck. Messages like "No code found etc from 2 apps I tried.
I have a Bell Blackberry Bold 9700 and I just switch to Rogers! Would it be *better if I flash the rogers firmware on the phone, or leave it with the bell firmware? The rogers one is .351 and the bell one is .423 ...I guess I was wondering if the rogers would be better since i'm on the Rogers network

I've a Curve 9360. Last night the led flash light of it went on, on its own and has been on since. it remains on even if i switch the device off. It goes off only when the battery has been removed. Though it doesnt remain bright throughout. The brightness keeps flactuating
I'm using nokia 5800. I updated my firmware from v50 and after it restart my phone is locked i can't open it. The keyguard switch ain't working. WHAT CAN I DO??It always says "Use keyguard switch to unlock screen and keys"
Since updating to 40.0.005 my phone turns itself off frequently. It never did this before.I thought it might be loose battery connections so put in some thin card etc but no help. Seems to be fine when on my desk during the day, but as soon as its put into my pocket and walked about then many times it switches off. Am getting no help from Nokia Care. Anyone out there got any suggestions?

I have a new Huawei Android smart watch and I enabled Smart Lock so that as long as the phone and watch were connected by Bluetooth the phone would remain unlocked. If they are not connected, my fingerprint would unlock the phone. But enabling Smart Lock seems to have no effect - the phone remains locked when connected to the watch. I have rebooted the phone multiple times after turning off security and Smart Lock then turning them both back on after rebooting.
I have experienced this feature on my gfs S4 so I know how it is supposed to work, but I have smart alerts turned on in the settings of my S5 but they do not seem to be working. I have not tested it with a missed called yet, but it says it works with messages and other notifications but it does not vibrate when I pick it up. Are there any other settings that might be affecting this? I do have the vibration turn on and up pretty high, and I even enabled vibrate during ringing just to be safe.
