    Hi Mr.Jayce

    my galaxy S II locked by entering wrong password. how can i upgrade the software..

    • Unlock it first.

      • BINU

        let me know how to unlock it

        • Try to restart it then input correct password.

        • Theo

          thats funny how he isnt telling you how to since the phone could possibly not be yours. haha.

        • Brad White

          To unlock the phone you can do a factory reset but in doing so it will reset any changes done to settings, delete all apps and data on internel memory etc however it will make know changes to firmware that is installed by which I mean it wont restore stock kernel and rom.

    Hi Mr Jayce,
    I got a ATT samsung note 2 last week,which i unloked to use it with other carriers.It was working just fine since this morning.It is not recognizing the sim or network and will not reset itself from the menu.It is not showing Baseband version values or IMEI on screen.Is there any solution for this?I will appreciate your inputs.

    • Hi andy, you can try to restore back to your stock firmware see.

  • andy

    thx for your help.Does restoring back to stock firmware makes any impact on samsung or att warranty?

  • andy

    i downloaded triangle away on my phone,but there is a message saying”superauser access is needed,but could not be acquired.Are you rooted and did you give permission”.What does that means?And same message is coming on the mobile ODIN i downloaded.

    • It mean that you don’t have root access.

  • andy

    so what are my options

    • How did you unlock it since you don’t have root access?

  • andy

    Just to mention it is showing SAFE MODE at the bottom left hand side.I unlocked it by using an online tutorial,i guess by entering *#197………something and UTMS option.Do you think i have put the phone in safe mode by mistake and thats why it is not responding?how can i come out of that.thx

    • Yes, it might caused by safe mode. Try reboot see and make sure that mode didn’t show up again.

      • Jonathan K

        If you unlocked the phone through the special menu UMTS>Debuug Screen>etc. and you switched off the Perso Sha256 you need to turn it back on after unlocking so that it will not continue to go to into safe mode. The perso sha256, i think, controls something to do with device security and encryption and with it turned off it forces the device into safe mode as a failsafe to prevent damage to the system. If you read this hope it helps.

  • paco

    hi, what is the password of zip file of the firmware

    • Please get it from the place you downloaded.

    Hi Jayce!
    I accidentally deleted my default ROM before installing Ditto Note 4.
    Do you think that with the method you explained in this video I will be able to get my default ROM back?

    • It should work if partition size is the same for both ROM.

      • Giuseppe Patti

        Jayce, sorry for bothering you.
        I would like to make myself clear to let you give me hand. And what’s more I’m desperate.
        Exactly what I did not do was make a backup before installing the new ROM.

        Now in the downloading mode my phone says:
        ODIN MODE
        CURRENT BINARY: custom
        SYSTEM STATUS: custom
        AP SWREV: A2

        • Giuseppe Patti


        • You can try to install original firmware back (Download it from SamMobile). But you can’t retrieve back user data since you don’t have backup previously.

          • Giuseppe Patti

            Thanks Jayce, but unfortunately it didn’t work.
