Samsung Galaxy S3 - Page 194

post #1931 of 2113
Soo I got Jelly Bean a little while ago on my verizon S3 (like 4 days ago) but now whenever I am typing and receive incoming text it will vibrate and freeze up the keyboard until it is done, this is a HUGE issue especially when you are talking to someone who can't fit more than 5 words into their sentence before having ADD and hitting send.

I'm using Swiftkey paid.

Anyone else?

Try with another keyboard and have a friend text you to see what happen, if its only on Swiftkey them email them so they can look into that problem,

I've had an issue with Swype since the JB upgrade. When I type numbers sometimes the cursor randomly jumps to a random place in the string of digits.

12345 -purposely made it right
15432 -just left it the way Swype did it.
23541
12354
23451
13542
To get numbers to stay in the right order I've got toclick the text box between each digit.

Sounds like your DPI is off.. 

 

 If your rooted - check your build.prop

It only happens with numbers, letters work fine. Its also only with Swype. I havnt messed with fixing it because I dont type long strings of numbers often.

That is strange indeed then... If you can find an apk for swype.. Delete and reinstall.

Hey guys I have a small issue. When I add a contact the default connection is my Google email. Nothing wrong with that but I have my contact filter showing only phone contacts so whoever I add doesn't show up. Easy fix is show all contacts but when I do that it has all my Facebook and Google friends which is way too many. How can I add phone under connection so I can filter?

Samsung recently rolled out a security patch (XXELLA Jelly Bean) for Galaxy S3 users in the UK. The update fixes a bug found in the Exynos processor used in the device. The company has now released another official update - Android 4.1 2 (base firmware XXELL6) - for the Galaxy S3 (I9300).

This firmware is compatible only with the Samsung Galaxy S3 (I9300) and flashing this on other variants may brick the device. In addition, users are advised to ensure the device meets the requirements outlined below.

  • Run Odin on computer and connect device using USB cable (a successful connection is indicated by a message - Added - and a COM port turning yellow with a port number displayed)
  • In Odin, select these files (to be found in the XXELL6 folder) in the order mentioned

  • After installation, a message - Pass - will appear in the Odin window, against a green background. The device will then automatically reboot. Unplug device only after Samsung logo appears
  • Note: If Galaxy S3 gets stuck at booting animation after installation, boot into Recovery and perform a data wipe (to do so, select Wipe Data/Factory Reset > Yes) and then select Reboot System Now

Just a reminder if you have a US phone dont flash that firmware or you'll more than likely brick it. Also US versions we have the quallcomm chip, so were not affected by the exynos exploit.
