While trying to solve my problem with the phone heating up, I decided to reboot my phone however it got stuck on Odin mode! I cannot do the normal solution which is take the battery out since it cannot be done in S6 Edge.
Today i tried to do a firmware update with odin. My phone crashed and odin failed. I now have a message on my phone saying firmware upgrade encountered an issue. Please select recovery mode in kies and try agan.
I'am using S6 G920F. When i connect it to my computer, everything is ok, i setup all driver. However, when i put my phone in download mode to flash stock rom or root file by odin, odin 3.10.6 can't connect with my phone. In screen of download mode, i see " Secure dowload: Enable" in blue. I tried to use older version of odin but all are failed.I was already turn off Samsung Reactivation Lock, check USB Debug.
I just tried out car mode for the first time and when I was in the simplified interface there was no way for me to exit it... I just tried it out inside so it wasn't automatically hooking up to a cars bluetooth or anything. I believe I was supposed to pull down on the top menu thing to turn it off but I couldn't pull it down while in car mode. I ended up having to reboot my phone to get out of car mode.
The network mode on my Samsung galaxy S5 device is always set at GSM only. When I try to change it to WCDMA only or GSM/WCDMA (auto mode) it changes back to GSM only. The area I am has 3G network and most devices I see have H but mine always shows as E no matter what I do. When browsing it takes a long time for pages to open because its always at E.
I have factory reset the device but still facing the same problem.
So I connect to a bluetooth device for my car to play music and provide directions. Driving mode somehow got turned on and is annoying as all heck. So basically I want it gone. It doesnt do anything for me, it just randomly resends a notification and interrupts my music and I have had it.
My GS5 was working just fine this morning. Out of nowhere I picked up my phone and it was on a black screen with green, white, red, then white again, then grey, blue and red words. It reads as follows;
BOOT RECOVERY MODE CHECK BOOT PARTITIONS sbli partition doesn't exist ODIN MODE PRODUCT NAME: SW-G900A CURRENT BINARY: SAMSUNG OFFICIAL SYSTEM STATUS: CUSTOM REACTIVATION LOCK(KK): OFF KNOX WARRANTY VOID: 0x0 QUALCOMM SECUREBOOT: ENABLE (CSB) RP SWREV: S1, T1, R1, A2, P1 SECURE DOWNLOAD: ENABLE UDC START
I have tried everything from removing battery, removing SD CARD, SIM CARD, connecting to charger, connecting to USB cable on my laptop, holding volume up, home, and power button. My biggest fear is losing all my data. I have 100's of photos of my 3 month old newborn on my phone memory because I was running low on my SD CARD. I can't fathom losing all her newborn pictures.
my phone arrived yesterday (replacement for my original which went the way of the dodo) and the damn thing wont stay asleep, regardless of actively making it or it doing it of its own accord it will not. the thing will light up like a christmas tree within seconds of it fading to black then will continue this cycle until the battery dies. only thing on the phone is ice cream sandwich which was installed in a hope that it might fix the issue (was happening from the moment i turned the thing on.)
After activating my Ultra Power Saving mode, I was able to deactivate, however my phone then went into a similar power saving mode, grey scale screen, no apps and no option to exit the mode available on any accessible parts of the settings. Is this a bug? or have I activated a mode I didn't intend to?
If i set my phone to airplane mode (which i usually do at night) the next morning i'll find it with near to no battery and just hanged on the samsung logo. I've tried to leave it out of airplane mode a whole night and it did not crash. Now just today, to see it happen, i set it to airplane mode, within an hour/hour and a half i tried to pick it up and wasnt responding to any button and suddenly shows the samsung logo.
So i'm pretty sure now that the behavior is linked to Airplane mode. I've cleared cache etc. I'm just not sure where to start. There must be something that just crashes the phone when in airplane mode. Going for factory reset is out of the question for now (well idealy). ps : it was fine under KK
Where to start/what to look for ? I'm in the meantime downloading the Android SDK, after that I'll put the usb debugging on and have an adb logcat running and force a crash again.
When I lock my SGS II i would expect all the buttons to lock! However the power button function remain active and its far too easy to accidently power off my phone or set it into flight mode.Does anyone know how to disable this "feature" ??
I have tried to flash stock firmware a few weeks ago but got the same problem. Now I am trying to flash engineering bootloader exactly the same problem.the problem is; every time I want to flash something with odin it fails after nand write start and then i get this weird thing on my screen.and yes after this fail i can still use my phone and other things.
Recently I've downloaded the last firmware from Vodafone Spain for the SM-G920F model using the wonderful SamFirm windows exe. The first time I got a ZIP file containing all the partition images and the second time ("Binary Nature" selected) I got the typical four files for the four ODIN'S fields.
Now, here comes the doubt, which of them should I flash? I mean, does the four files format include the PIT file for example? Or there are no differences between doing it using the ZIP file or four files format? Which is the better format/way to install it completely clean?
So, I want to flash the latest version of TWRP to my 920i ... My only question is this..
- Flash the new TWRP 22.214.171.124 (the one for Android 5.1.1) with Odin
This one for the normal S6 models & This one for the Edge models
In Odin 3.10.6, which option do you select to flash TWRP? I'm assuming BL is for bootloader, CP is for modem - what do you use for the recovery? AP, CSC, or UMS. I don't want to select the wrong thing and brick my phone.
I would like to update to Marshmallow from lollipop but my charge port is knackered. Doesn't work at all so can't use odin in any way. Can I just flash a new modem in recovery and then flash a marshmallow rom.
I tried flashing the newest firmware that came a few days ago.
<ID:0/006> Added!! <OSM> Enter CS for MD5.. <OSM> Check MD5.. Do not unplug the cable.. <OSM> Please wait..
and after 5-10 minutes, I just take the USB out and boot it up normally, because nothing happens.I'm in download mode, USB debugging is enabled, original cable, Odin v3.09, tried using different usb ports, odin is started as administrator.
I have a friend's Galaxy S6 here. A password was suddenly set and nobody knew why, she really said it came out of nowhere! So she asked me to get her photos from the phone and reset it afterwards.
I did that on other phones before so I flashed TWRP and pulled the files with adb. I tried to reboot after that and was stuck at the boot screen. I tried flashing some stock firmware from stockrom.net but Odin always says FAIL!
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?
when I set my phones alarm clock at night, the phone has recently started going into airplane mode of its own accord. This isn't affecting the alarm but obviously I am missing any texts or phonecalls coming through and don't get them until I wake and change the phone mode back. I am running ICS 4.0.3 LPS rooted using Chainfires kernel.
