Default Galaxy Camera Hidden menus

Hey guys,

I spent all night trying to reenable USB on my device. Rebellos and I have been designing bootloaders and screwing with settings which are not normally accessed. So somehow I put my device into MODEM mode so it would try to connect to the computer as a data device instead of a camera/phone. I was seriously thinking my device was borked because I've been working inside it... and while it's a Samsung, it's not totally bulletproof.... So, to make matters worse, some asshole posted an invalid hidden code all over the internet to access factory mode on the Galaxy Camera.

Here's how you access factory mode and change your device between a normal camera and modem. Every other guide on the internet is wrong.

1. Install Nova Launcher from the market
2. hold on the launcher screen until a menu pops up.
3. select shortcuts
4. select Activities
5. select Factory Mode
6. Select Factory Mode FactoryCTRL
7. launch the Factory Mode shortcut you just created
8. use this thread http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1894102 to locate codes for your device.

I fixed my device with the *#7284# -- Phone Utility (USB Settings) code. Both should be set to PDA.

This technique should work for EVERY device. The codes will vary, but you should be able to access factory modes.

I don't see the thanks button.

But anyway, any luck on getting the device to make / receive calls / texts? Or print money at least?

Thank you.

So why or what is the reason for factory mode? In other words, what do we gain by doing this?

what purpose ?

"I fixed my device with the *#7284# -- Phone Utility (USB Settings) code. Both should be set to PDA. "

Sounds feasable to me to at least have the option available
~Motorola Moto X XT 1058~ Current (stock until BL unlock?)
~Samsung Galaxy Note II SGH-I317 - 16GB ~ retired
~Samsung Galaxy Note LTE SGH-I717 - 16GB~ retired
~Samsung Galaxy SIII SGH-I747 - 16GB~ retired
~Acer Iconia A500~ retired
~Kindle Fire 1st Gen~ retired
~LG Optimus Pro G2~ Current

No stock here , nothing but custom! except my moto x

Default Thank you.... still can't see a USB mode though

Hi,

New member here and I want to thank you for the link for the code and the tip on using Nova to unlock more stuff from the SGC.

I did what you instructed above but saw that my device already had PDA chosen by default and I still can't see the USB Utilities on my Settings window, nor can I move apps from device to SD.

My SGC only has a few apps installed beyond the factory installed ones. Probably 5 utility and browser apps and about 10 games (kiddie ones like Angry Birds, Cut the Rope, Minecraft) etc. and it's already running out of device storage space.

Is it possible to have the enable USB mode? Thanks
