In case you’re in trouble (too many unlock pattern locked your phone, or somebody “locked” your phone) you can do hard reset, which will put phone in to factory status and also WIPE EVERYTHING from the phone !!!

  1. Turn of your mobile phone and reinsert the battery.
  2. Continuously hold the Volume Down button.
  3. Press and release the power button.
  4. You will see options like Fastbook, Recovery, Simlock and clear storage. Release the Volume Down button.
  5. Select the Clear Storage by pressing download the Volume Down button.
  6. Press and release the power button.
  7. Now confirm your decision: Volume Up for Yes and Volume Down for No.

I just updated my Galaxy S II to IceCream 4.0.3 and is fantastic. If anyone interested about changes here’s the manual to read…

 

GT-I9100_EU(Icecream)

In Settings -> Display -> Screen Display -> Font Style and choose from the three options. You can download more from the Android Market as well.

In Search tab type ‘about:useragent’ and you can choose between the iPhone, Nexus One, Desktop, Galaxy S or custom string.

Simply hit home button and then the power key while holding onto home to take a screenshot. You can then see them in the Gallery.

Thankfully Samsung let this option available. Just tap the application icon then hit the menu button and click edit.
Drag the desired application you want to use down to the dock and it’ll replace the one that is currently there.

Android OTA 4.0.4 GSM Only

At last there’s something … fresh 🙂

So if you have Nexus (Prime) GSM version here’s your option for update.

READ carefuly what you need, what you have to have and how to do it!!!

Note : You MUST be on stock 4.0.2 ROM with radio XXKK6, otherwise any attempt wil fail!!!

  1. You need a GSM Galaxy Nexus with the product codename ‘yakju’. NOT the Verizon Galaxy Nexus, or ‘yakjuxw’, or ‘yakjusc’ or any of the other variants we’ve heard about. Check your product name before you begin using this app.
  2. You need to be running stock Android 4.0.2 (ICL53F) rather than any custom ROM.
  3. You need the Android SDK installed. Note the path.
  4. You need fastboot. (Windows or Mac)
  5. You need to unlock your bootloader. If you haven’t done that (and you really should), here’s how. (Note that if you haven’t already completed this step, unlocking your bootloader will wipe all data on your phone.)
  6. Download the Android 4.0.2 to 4.0.4 update from Google here.
  7. Download the latest ClockWorkmod recovery image from here.

Steps:

  1. Copy the OTA package above to the /sdcard folder on your Galaxy Nexus
  2. Drop the ClockworkMod file in the same folder you have fastboot in on your computer in the SDK folder (either /tools or /platform-tools). Rename it to cwm.img to make things easy.
  3. Reboot your Galaxy Nexus to bootloader mode (hold volume-up and volume-down, then press power).
  4. Plug your phone into your computer, and open a command prompt or terminal. Navigate to the folder with fastboot and thecwm.img inside it.
  5. At the command line, type the following: fastboot-windows.exe boot cwm.img (or just fastboot.exe if that’s what you’ve got)
  6. Use the ClockWorkMod recovery menu to flash a zip file from the SD card, and choose the OTA zip file you downloaded earlier.
  7. Let things run their course.
