Venkatesh Varma, 24 Dec 2013How to downgrade from 4.3 to 4.1.2. I tried odin but it didn't worked. Please any help? You can't. Don't even try it. It could permanently brick your device. MK4 bootloader is not downgradable.
My Note 2 Battery backup after updating to 4.3
Some people here do not even know that all android apps (including whatsapp for Symbian only) do not close from the background even if we press the return key. All other Symbian apps close completely when we choose exit. This is the reason for worst battery backup of most of the android phones (do not blame on the processor cores for this).
Check this option in android 4.3 and tell :
Go to settings --> more --> application manager -->just tap from right to left placing your finger in the 'downloaded' section. You will see 'running'. Here goes on. Check the number of apps !!!. Wow !!!!. Even you force closing, it will say that those apps will run in the background after the next restart of the phone !!!.
If you do not have data plan enabled or have a WiFi hotspot nearby, you have to switch off the mobile data to avoid bill shocks !!!.
Still all android apps should be developed and redistributed with EXIT (without background running) option. This is one of the place where Symbian rocks compared to android. Another is asking us for the apps installation location. android apps just gets installed in phone memory be default. If there is no space in phone memory this is of no use even if you have 4.2.x android version with move to SD card option !!!.
I am not like a idiot here who repeatedly claims that only his phone is original (not a replica of note 2 etc) as if he has gone to the Samsung company directly and bought the phone.
I say once. My phone is original and I know about it. Thats all.
