I'm a new Android user and currently using the Samsung Note 2.

I have problems connecting to the wireless network both at work and at home even to both shows strong signals. Each time I try to connect I will get the 'Network disabled. Poor connection' message.


What could be the problem and can anyone help me out here? Any help would be appreciated.
your motherboard might have issue.
did u try resetting the phone?

wipe the phone/reset factory settings. see if it helps
otherwise send it in to service center
most likely is motherboard issue. its the faster way to diagnose your problem.

Hi bro,
Thanks for yr reply. By resetting the phone, will all the contents and data be wiped out as well? How do I actually perform this reset?

Yes contents/data will be wipe out.

To boot the Galaxy S2 into recovery mode, first turn off the device. Then simply press and hold the Volume up button, the Home button and the Power button at the same time. Keep holding the buttons until you have reached the recovery mode.

From there there shld be

"wipe data/factory reset"
"wipe cache partition"

use the volume buttons to navigate and power button to select i think.

Recently updated my i9100 to 4.04 via KIES, then the phone started prompting for software update.
After updating software, the phone bricked.
Doesn't turn on at all, 3 button combo doesn't work.
Tried USB jig that was confirmed to work with friend's i9100, also cannot get into download mode.

Still charges when plugged in, battery gets warm.

I fear it is hard-bricked, anyone managed to salvage a hard brick?

Are you using CM10.1? This has been fixed since 16 July. Flash 23 or 24 Jul nightly and you will be fine.

You clear your AGPS cache by using GPSTEST.

This is by default. If you are using Go Launcher, uninstalling voice command will solve this issue.

My S2 keeps freezing, hanging and rebooting itself after I updated to official Jellybean 4.1.2 DXLSD and then root with philz-cwm6. Seems like S2 is struggling to run Jellybean smoothly. Anyone else also encountering this issue?

Quite fed up with it already and thinking of restoring back to ICS, even though I like the Jellybean features.

Hi,

How to check if my S2 was installed with GoLauncher?
I tried to uninstall voice command but there's no option to uninstall it.

Thanks!
