  9. if i have installed russian jb firmware then how to update indian firmware through kies plz help

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think you can't install the indian version if you have already installed the russian jellybean ROM.But I can't say whether Samsung KIES allows you to update your galaxy s advance according to geographic location.You can do one thing.

      1.Connect your s advance to pc and run KIES.
      2.If Samsung KIES shows that new update available for your phone then you can update it to Indian version otherwise you can't because it is already updated to android 4.1.2 jellybean then how can you update it with same software.

      Well there is no difference between Russian JB rom and Indian JB rom.

  10. after updating throught kies the phone works normally but battery is draining plz help

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Shankar android is not good at battery backup.An android device stays only 1 day if you use it more.Still you can disable visual themes and animations,bluetooth,wifi,data,GPS to increase battery life.

      Use task manager hourly to kill unwanted apps.It will increase battery life.Use GSM network if not activated on 3G.Always make sure wifi hotspot is disabled.Also reduce screen timeout and screen brightness it will help you alot,but in sunlight increase the screen brightness otherwise you won't see anything.

    1. You can try factory resetting the phone through android system recovery which I mentioned above in this post.But before factory reset remove your SDCARD from the phone and backup entire data on your phone like messages,contacts etc.

      Factory resetting will solve the problem.
      Good Luck.

    1. This phone is not upgradable to ICS 4.0 but it can be updated to android 4.1 jellybean.This phone is a good buy as it contains a dual core processor and MALI 400 graphics(same as of galaxy s3).But this phone is overstocked that's why samsung released the jellybean update for it and reduced its price so it can be sold at a faster rate.

      Anyways device has no problems.But I have a doubt that it won't get keylimepie update but.

      Pros:
      1.1 GHz dual core cpu.
      2.MALI 400 MP graphics plays almost any game.
      3.16 GB storage.
      4.Super AMOLED screen.

      Currentlt this device can be bought for $251 dollars or 13500 INR.But most dealers are selling it at @19000 INR.So if you can buy this at $251 or 13500 INR then this is best buy.But before buying thorougly view its review on youtube,it contains many videos.

      Good Luck..

    1. Kies takes 2-3 attempts to successfully update the device.You can try the above method to upgrade your galaxy s advance to jellybean.But the rom in this post is for russian users,however you won't feel any problem with russian rom.

      But if you want to install the country specific jellybean then you need to tell me the country where you live so I will provide you the link for the country specific JB ROM,then you can flash your s advance with your country's JB ROM with ODIN and you will not encounter any problem.

      Delete
    2. Below is the download link.Download the ROM and repeat the above process.If you face any problem ask me.
