Re: urgent help required

Kies strikes again

The only option open to you is to debrand if this is urgent

you can put the vodafone firmware on but you need to follow the debranding guide

But you need to see if you can put the phone in to service mode

Take out the battery leave foir thirty secounds

place battery back in

Press and hold the Volume up and home button at the same time

Now press the power button and wait and see if the Galaxy logo shows then let go of the power

it should all being well go in to service mode now from there you can try a factory reset but it may not work

 

If this does not work then you can do the debranding

As your phone is bricked you have nothing to loose and will fix your phone

follow the guides i have put links to the firmware you need as well

the section is

Re: urgent help required

Personally I would stay away from Kies due to it being unstable. If you follow my guides in the 2 videos then you wont loose your warranty.

 

In this video I explain how to recover your phone. To get in to download mode press and hold Vol down, Home key then followed by the power button. This should put your phone back in to download mode.

 

 

Once you have watched this you will need to download the required files which I have prepared for you

 

  • Stock Vodafone Rom JV9 including Odin tool = Here
  • 7 Zip (you will need this to unzip the download) = 7 Zip

Quick guide:

  1. Download above files
  2. Open Odin
  3. Put tar file in to the PDA field
  4. Put phone in to download mode
  5. Connect phone to PC
  6. Com port in odin will turn yellow
  7. Click start and flash the stock Vodafone firmware
  8. Your done!

Here is another video of the process above

Please note that these instructions are given in good faith however, I won't accept responsibility should anything go wrong. These guides have been fully tried and tested by myself and work!

Re: urgent help required

Hi DanielJarvis.  You can remove the app by going to Google.co.uk and clicking on the Sign In option on the top right.  Then click on the Play link at the top and then My Android Apps.  Scroll through the list until you get to the App you want to remove and then click on the dustbin icon next to it. The next time your phone connects to the internet it will uninstall it.

 

When you say your phone is acting weird - what it is not doing?  From your message it kinda sounds like it isn't charging?  Have you tried charging it via the USB port in your computer (just in case there is an issue with the charger)
