TWRP 2.3.1 "auto update" on my S3 ----- now it won't boot
Sunday 29th of December 2013
Ok, start off by admitting I'm a technophobe.I hardly know how to adjust the volume on my phone, so I haven't intentionally changed anything. That being said, the S3 while slick and fast initially has had the most "personality problems" of any phone I've had. This is my 3rd or 4th droid, and I like the platform in general. So, onto the actual problem. I had a local tech shop replace my glass, and do a factory reset of things after a girl at work dragged it off the desk onto the tile floor. So $100 later, the phone is clean, clear and seems to be running faster and lasting longer on a single charge. Until this evening..... It "automatically" downloaded some TWRP thing that seems to have taken it over. It downloaded, said it had to reboot, and then did reboot. It came up with that screen in the link, saying it was version 2.3.1 I could not find a way to dismiss it or get to my home screen. Eventually, I hit "restore defaults" and "reboot". Now it will flash "SAMSUNG" for about half a second, and then go to the "SAMSUNG GALAXY
Difference between USB cables????
Saturday 12th of July 2014
Hello Everyone, I ran across this forum as I was trying to research an issue I have. Currently I have the Samsung Note 3. This problem however has to do with both, my current and my last phone which was a Galaxy S3. Basically, I can use the exact same USB wall charger, but depending on the USB cable I use, I either get a very fast charge time (from 2% to +/- 20% or 25%) in the matter of 10-15 mins, or I plug it in and after half an hour, it has not even reached 10% yet. I would have thought that it's because of USB 3.0 but I have had the same problem with my S3 and I have also used a good working USB 2.0 cable on the Note 3 and had it charge very fast and vise versa. My question is: is therr a secret to how the USB cables are wired (+5V/GRND/D+/D-) or are they all wired standard? Just to make sure, the pair of data wires does not require to be connected for charging only, right? At first I thought that it was the USB wall charger (less than 2A/2000mA) but then I realized that this was not the case and that the main thing making a difference is the USB wire I was using. I have also d
How do I fix my Galaxy S3 from dying so quickly?
Wednesday 27th of May 2015
I have had a StraightTalk Samsung Galaxy S3 for about a year now. Recently my battery started dying really fast. It could have a full chrage and then I'd make a quick 2 to 6 minute phone call and it would drop down to like 80% battery charge. Wtf?!?! I have absolutely no clue what to do. I ordered new batteries. I got 2 new batteries and have tried both, but my phone still drops like crazy. I have turned off Wifi, GPS and all that. I've set my screen lighting to a the automatic setting. I've rebooted and done a complete factory reset to my phone, and nothing is working. I'm going crazy! Someone please help ASAP!!!
Why do all my chargers act weird after a while
Sunday 14th of June 2015
I have been through at least 16 chargers for my Samsung Galaxy S3. I will buy a charger and it will be fine and great it will charge my phone fast and everything you want a charger to do. but after a while it will stop my charger now I plugged my phone in last night at 43% and I turned off my phone to let it charge but when I woke up and I turned my phone on it was at 44%. I have treated my chargers all good I never bend them and I always unplug it once I'm done using it. So you can understand how frustrating this is. Sometimes I will be charging my phone and I will go on it for a few minutes and the percent will go down and this whole time this is happening my phone is plugged in. I have been told its might be my port hole but my charger will be plugged in so I was thinking it might be something with my outlet or battery but once I buy a new charger its fine for about a month or two so I don't want to waste more money on a charger that wont last me.
