  • sumeet

    after updating to 4.1.2 i am unable to use screen lock please help me for this otherwise 4.1.2 jelly bean is awesome

  • F.K. Lawyer

    Sorry, but this msg is out of context. I need ur help very badly. At the time of upgrade from ICS to Jelly Bean thru KIES, something went wrong. Jelly Bean has been installed but not install properly. The cell phone did not restart after installation and the phone is still running on ICS. However, when I try to download the latest software over KIES, it states that “you have the latest software”.

    Kindly help me in installing/reinstalling Jelly Bean again. Also SMS Messaging is not working. If I try to send a SMS the phone hangs up and after a little while goes back to the main screen.

    Regarding the cell phone not restarting after Jelly Bean installation, I think I was a bit early in unplugging the cell phone from the laptop while installing from KIES.

    I am looking forward to receive help in the matter.

    Thanks a Million.
