nust saw the edit. Lol....if your not sure what it is DONT UNINSTALL IT!. First thing is to go to recovery and make a Nandroid backup, (in case you screw up)

Hold vol+ & vol- along with the power button. Hold them all until it blacks out and vibrates twice. Then when you see "Samsung" release the power button and continue to hold vol+ & down until you see Clockwork recovery (Assuming you have it installed). Wipe cache partition and wipe dalvik (under "advanced"). Then make a backup. This way you will have a clean backup if you ever need to restore.
(you may need to reset your lockscreen wallpaper ;) )

Root explorer is also a good root filemanager. Astro doesnt let you set permissions its a good one if you do have root.

Hope this helps
360° Prada in the works....no eta's please, when it is flawless it will be released. Seems i need to make myself a better name, since after all the work ive put in over the past 2 years doesnt make me a recognized dev ;-(

Hey guys, I froze both software update applications with ROM manager pro(because they were constantly running, eating ram & refused to close) & when I attempt to defrost them, neither of them refuse to work. Anyone know how to make them work? Do I absolutely need them to receive future updates from Samsung or are there other ways of receiving updates from them?

Try un-freezing one then rebooting. If not you should still be able to update Via Kies sooner than waiting on an OTA. (Or restore your Nandroid backup)

So, I basically don't need those applications to receive future updates from Samsung? Also, how do I update via Kies?

Hello. New to this forum. I have a quick question: Is there any special magic to getting the Blaze into Download mode. I've done a search and found several methods for various other devices. None of them, including the one described at the start of this thread, have worked for me. I get either a gray battery icon or some sort of warning message in yellow letters that doesn't last long enough for me to read more than the words "..NOC block".

That is, I've tried holding the various buttons before and after connecting the USB cable to the Blaze; holding just the UP, just the DOWN, etc. I'm wondering if the Blaze requires some special sleight of hand.

My purpose in rooting, for what it's worth, is to be able to run SetCPU to improve battery performance.

How I do it...

Phone plugged into usb, battery out.
Hold both volume buttons and power button.
Put in the battery.
When the dl screen pops up quickly let up on all buttons and then quickly press the vol up button.
Wait a sec and then you're there.

Hope this helps.
