Default Common Issues and possible solutions / tips and tricks

Common Issues and possible solutions / tips and trick

shutdown/freeze randomly in your pocket

. Change your Wifi sleep policy to Never, put a small paper behind the battery some times battery gets loose , if problem stays fectory reset and install latest firmware and fectory reset yet again ..

rooted phone and upgragde gingerbread,but still having problem about bootanimated

Install Root explorer and you need to select "remount as r/w".

command on adb shell to replac framework-res.apk?
#mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system

then:
cp /sdcard/framework-res.apk /system/framework/

#reboot (bootloop posibility if framework doesnt match)

Poor Battery Life
Install latest firmware , turn of wifi when not using , try to charge with wall Charge some times data cable don't charge the properly, And don't forget to clean Ram after using apps , it helps to reduce load on device.

Compass doesn't work anymore
Its a bug , there is no solution availble yet , as soon something comes out i'll post here.

Is there a possibility to overclock samsung galaxy Gio
Nop overclocking isn't working with gio yet.

What is the code for fectory reset
Put your phone in recovery mode (By holding home button+Power button) and select fectory reset option from there or if your phone is on use this code
*2767*3855# Fectory reset will remove all your data from the phone, apps , gallery , contacts and messages be sure to make a backupHow to check your firmware version
*#1234# OR Goto setting<About<Scroll down and check
How to put Gio to downloading mode to flash a firmware by ODIN
shut down your phone , hold home button+power button+volume down button altoghether.

How to Restart your phone (without turn on and off)
Volume down + Volume up + Power button hold untill phone goes off it will turn back again itself.. Or use adb , or terminal emulater , type su then type reboot
How to Remove boot up sound??
Delete file /system/etc/poweron.ogg using root explorer.

What is a2sd darktremor and why should i install it ???
a2sd darktremor let you install your all apps on sd card , so in this way internal memory stays empty and phone perform better than stock rom...

I want to Flash my phone , What should i do after and before???
you always have to fectory reset before and after flashing , when you done flashing you need to root(most of custom roms are already rooted so skip to next step) now you have to enable (a2sd daktremor if its not enabled in a custom rom you have to do it manually) . thats it , now you can start restoring your data , and install apps ...

Download Odin 4.42(from the guide how to flash galaxy gio using odin) and Do a fectory reset in recovery mode and then try to flash it ...

.tar file is a single flash file , don't unzip it , and don't forget to click on one package on ODIN ,and locate .tar flash file and start .

@waqasshahzad1986, maybe it's better to remove the "Remove simlock" link on the first post. That method has been deleted by the author because it on a lot off phones the efs partition got corrupted making the phone completely useless.
