Use kies and do a firmware initialisation to restore your phone.
If you don't know how to do it, aak for help, don't just say its crap.
UK user, 06 Jul 2013Do we have to do this evertime we update. And how do you clear partition cache etc pls? I thou... moreBooth into system recovery and wipe cache partition is option 5.
Tip. If you wipe old data out of cache partition just before you do a rom update, yiu wouldn'tneed to factory rreset after.
As there would have been no old rom data stored to conflict with the new ROM.
Shah HussaiNii, 09 Jul 2013This is the time for a factory reset. or junk it? Choose one relevant for you.I did factory reset almost 5 times, did change animation speeds, did change screen modes, did change widgets and did more. Nothing solved the 'Touchwiz home has stopped.' Moreover, my default video player app doesn't open, though from file manager, video files can be played by Video player. I searched or solution but found that even Samsung doesn't know how to fix those. S3 seems a bullshit to me now. Why Sammy markets these craps?
He is talking about the leaked Samsung firmware released months ago, Btw AOSP/AOKP/CM based roms does their job more than that. I don't need Samsung's crappy touchwiz 4.2 update anymore.
After 4.1.2 and rooting, this phone shows a number of bugs that will suffer you a lot. Such as, my phone's Touchwiz Home has stopped which forced me to use another launcher. And my Gallery does not show any picture! These are ruining!
best phone everrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr just awesomeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee titanium grey colour.....
sIII with 4.2.2 simply rocks.. using it for the last 7months.. still one of the best in the market.. though it's the leaked official firmware...
