Anthony, 08 Jan 2013You need to understand it is a ROM software change/replacement and not a ROMs patch. 4.1.2 ROM... more4.1.2 is still Android and not a complete replacement to iOS or WP8 or Ubuntu..., and ICS is very close to Jelly Bean, so only users that have any problems need to do a factory reset, and most users should not need to do this factory reset! If the user is not rooted then everything on the internal sdcard will be erased and every efforts in games... will be lost because users have to reinstall everything again from Google Play and they have to replay the games... from the beginning again, so a factory reset should always be the last option! Normal upgrades should not need that the user have to do a factory reset, that is just bad customer support by Android/Samsung!

Think of it as a full glass of Samsung flavoured Kool-Aid.
If there was a problem with the taste, say it was not sweet enough. It could be easily patched by adding sweeter to the exiting drink.
But what if the 1 problem was the full glass is too sweet or the 1 problem is they wanted to change the color from blue to pink.
Itís going to be a lot easier and faster to empty the glass and refill it with a new batch of Samsung kool-Aid than try to fix what was already in the glass with a patch.

It is replacing 4.1.1 all together. Itís a complete stand alone ROMs just as 4.1.1 was a complete sand alone ROM replacement for 4.0.4
That is why after you do the large ROMs upgrades you showed always to a cache partition clear and a factory reset. Just to make sure nothing from the OLD ROMs gets mixed in with the new ROMs replacement.
The small updates you get are just patches that dependent on the ROM you already have (fixing 1 or 2 problems in the existing ROMs). And not a full replacement as the 700-800mb ones.
Note: as it is a replacement to the older ROMs, you are not going to lose an additional 700-800mb of space on your ROM chip

That view type let you put an icon in a specific page and position and it will stay there till you manually change it again.
If you want it to auto full the rows and columns always in neat order you have to set your view type to Alphabetical grid.

Anonymous, 08 Jan 2013help i can't play my movies when conneting my phone to my tv to watch them.Let me ask u do u have "all share dongle" so that u can connect to your Tv and if u do not have just go to the nearest Samsung dealers and buy one.
