[Q] Gallery/Flashing Problems
This is my first ever post on here so take it easy on me.
I have a Verizon Galaxy Note 2 that on Monday started giving me issues. Everytime I open the gallery the app gets slower and slower until it crashes, no matter if I go directly to the gallery or through the camera app. I've tried different sd cards, clearing phone cache from recovery mode, deleting the cache from the gallery and media apps, factory resets and nothing has helped.
Samsung said it needed to be reflashed to factory defaults and I should send it in. I've been trying to do this on my own so I wouldn't be without it for 2 weeks again. The first time I did it something went wrong and then the phone would only go to a screen that says connect and let kies restore. Then I went through the tutorial on here and got the phone working again but the video in the tutorial after installing the factory OS it went to the setup screen, mine went to where it was as if I had just rebooted the device, all my settings and wifi passwords were still there.
The phone is totally stock....no custom Roms, no unlocked or rooted.
Does anybody have any ideas how to fix this or reflash the factory OS like Samsung said? I've spent hours and hours on this and nothing has fixed the problem. The phone is pretty much unusable because gallery is a pretty important app.
