No matter what you do, hitting from behind as a fix means it's hardware. The fact that when you reboot is because it repowers the chip on the board, and when it does it probably allows for some grace working time.
My Bad, I usually do so but somehow missed that.
Yes I doubt it’s a hardware issue but before repairing or replacing the vibration parts I wanted to try fix it by software end if this is a software issue. I still have the warranty period left for 6month or so but the thing is here in India Samsung doesn’t replace the complete faulty device like they or apple does in US. The always repair or replace the faulty parts. And I’m not comfortable to use a repaired phone.
What I was trying to do is I wanted to reinstall the stock latest firmware by Kies 3. I really don’t want to use any custom rom, neither rooting as Stock is quite good for me and fulfill my all requirement what I need for my work. But the thing is with Kies 3 1stly it always showing “N-900 Device not supported” when I was trying “firmware upgrade and initialization” but somehow I manage to let it work but at the end it showing “you are already have latest firmware” and it stopped.
I googled it as saw all those have this same issue, factory reset didn’t solve this, neither hard reset. I wanted to know is there any way to reinstall the same stock official updated firmware easily by Kies 3? I don’t wanted to do it by odin and a downloaded pack from sammobile, I am looking for a fast and easy official way. the reason I don’t want to use by odin is it will require lots of learning to learn the whole thing to avoid messing up with it, and I really don’t have time for this.
Also another question is: when I went to download mode for the 1st time I see its says “Knox warranty 0x” what does that mean? Warranty void or its still under it. I saw people have 0x0 or 0x1 but didn’t see any one having 0x only. Please advice, thanks
also now the vibration coming and going off by itself, like yesterday night it was not working but when I wakeup it was working, and no restart meanwhile. BUT I observed most of the time its turning off when I’m charging the phone or at the end of charging or before pulling the charging cable off. When charging starts it was vibrating and during charging it working same, but after I pull the cable, it stopped.
