Now the phone resets COMPLETELY to factory/unboxing status.
Install CyanogenMod 11.
My s4 booted itself time to time so i installed CM11 and it solve all my problems, even battery time is doubled and most of Samsung own software was gone so it is smoother to use.
I recommend 5/5
Does anyone know where you can get a I9505 (vietnam made) repaired? Mine came with a defective motherboard so it can't scan for wifi and only gets intermittent network. Bought in US through Amazon, taken to Kenya to use, and only got it set up a month later just after the Amazon 30-day warranty ended. Samsung USA and Kenya tell 'tuff luck fellow, not our problem' and their services can't repair this model. Not sure whether to trash it and join iphone, or try to find a way to repair it. Any ideas?
