Having storage problem after upgrade to JB

Hello, i am new here~ recently i updated cm10.2 alpha 4, but i faced a problem that's i cannot detect my sd card (internal/external) camera/gallery unable to use, i've also tried cm10.1 alpha 9 the problem is still persist.

It's there any solution on this? cause I've searched the forum and googled, but no luck:(

ps: the problem won't happen in stock rom (2.3.6), but i wanted my i9003 to be upgraded JB without having this frustrated problem! :confused:

i fixed the problem, if anyone had a problem like me, just go to the storage and mount the sd card

Hi!
Try this ROM dude! It's based on latest Android OS kitkat.
It's better.

Magnetic Sensor

Hi. I'm using CM 10.2 alpha 4 on my i9003 and apps* that try to read the magnetic sensor fail. Is there any fix for this?

* Compass gives "Magnetic Sensor Error!!"
* CPU-Z (in Sensors tab) has no reading for MS-3C Magnetic Sensor and MS-3C Orientation Sensor

By the way, on stock ROM my i9003 magnetic sensor works properly. Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi,

I got help from a friendly user before and read a bit about the different ROMs.

Now I settled for SlimBean 4.3. When I Read the Install instructions, I'm completely confused: The Links provided, especially "Slim-4.3.build.1.6-WEEKLY-1193-GalaxySL-JLS36G-Alpha3.zip", don't contain any MD5 files or something that I could put on my PDA DDLF2 Phone via Odin.

The ZIP contains already what looks like the final file structure including busybox and some SH files. What should I put into the PIT / BOOTLOADER / PDA / PHONE / CSC fields in Odin?

And what is a GAPPS file and how do I install it?

Cheers!

No bro, custom roms allways flash thru custom recovery(cwm,twrp...), only stock roms can be flashed with odin. Flash first proper cwm recovery and then flash custom roms. Look for cf-root here in xda, it contains cwm.

ROM DDLF2 using one file only as provided by teashar.com or sammobile site

(pit,bootloader,modem etc.) as suggested by

Flashing 1file firm is like an update(no repartion), flashing 5/4files firm you "clean" all partitions and start from fresh firm. [ 5files=data wipe, 1file=upgrade existing rom]

Just a suggestion, if you planning to start to flash roms i recomend to flash full firm (5/4files) instead of 1file package.

Try Nameless (and solve 80% of CM's issues)

I'm new here, but i hope to help someone to keep alive this pretty good device, i've tried all the CM and then moved to Nameless rom. it's 4.4.4 and run much more faster than CM whith daily updates and a lot of useful staff build inside. developers made a great work and i think we should give it a shot. hope I've been useful, good day to everybody :)

you can find the rom here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2762873

    INTRODUCTION: Hi! I noticed a lively i9003 general thread again after a while. Its been a month since new comers/noobs post a thread asking on such things. Ive come to think in making this thread to answer your questions, explain what you dont understand and etc. Feel free to ask questions. Again THIS IS FOR NOOBS ONLY

    Requirements:
    1. Samsung KIES installed
    2. ODIN v1.85 installed
    3. Cable Connector
    4. Samsung Galaxy SL i9003 ONLY!


    Before proceeding make sure you have met all the required items above.

    Guide on how to upgrade to 2.3.6 firmware also known as GINGERBREAD

    1. Make sure your on 2.2.x firmware (FROYO). Go to settings then about, look for android version.
    2. Once sure, download XXKPE and XXKPQ (You may choose any 2.3.6 firmware but XXKPQ is the most used if not mistaken) here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1004647
    3. Download ODIN http://dl.xda-developers.com/attach...7861c364/5059c595/5/8/1/9/1/3/Odin3-v1.85.zip
    4. Then follow the guide here CAREFULLY! http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1133787

    Once done, you're now in gingerbread. You may want to ROOT it now, so

    Guide on how to root any Gingerbread i9003 firmware

    1. Turn off the phone, go to download mode by holding power + home + volume down.
    2. Once in download mode, open odin then connect to pc.
    3. Check if your phone is detected by odin you must see color yellow in the box with the port no. and a word "Added!" in log screen.
    4. Download bagaria.tar in here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1351056 or in here http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1331253 choose what fits your firmware example your in XXKPQ choose xxkpq cf-root.
    5. Click PDA then browse the .tar file. Then Start.
    6. Wait a second and phone will boot itself. Your now rooted. But you need to wipe cache in recovery mode to do this hold power + home + volume up then clear cache and dalvik cache. Reboot. Done.

    How to Overclock i9003

    Overclocking is a procedure wherein we push the limit of our CPU, the current is 1000 ghz. The most stable OC is 1200 ghz. So the Kernel is the one responsible for doing this job. If you go to our development thread. You can browse search read there about kernels. For short, kernel is what you flash when you root it. Right cf-root is the kernel itself. So try browsing and choosing the kernel you want. Make sure its for GB firmware only. There is a kernel w/c is in .tar file, if you happened to see this just repeat the above step in how to root but if its in .zip,

    1. ClockworkMod also known as CWM is like uhmmm BIOS! in our PC. You already have this cause your now rooted. So next is,
    2. Save the file to your SD card example UCkernel.zip
    3. Go to recovery mode, hold power + home + volume up
    4. Install zip from sd card.
    5. Choose the .zip file
    6. Before rebooting, wipe cache/dalvik cache.
    7. Open wifi/if you dont have download it in PC.
    8. Download "No Frills CPU Control"
    9. From there you can now choose the frequency you want.

    How to change rom from Stock to Custom Roms

    ROM stands for Read Only Memory where your firmware/apps are stored. Also uhhmm it also has something to do with the User Interface. LOL cant explain clearly but once your rooted you can now try Custom Roms which can be found in dev. area.

    You can choose diff. ROMS in dev area, make sure its GB version only. (I'll update this w/ ICS and JB if this thread is approved by the mods and devs). Installing roms is just like installing kernels with .zip file. Same instruction. :)

    How to Change the Theme of your i9003

    Well, Theming is for deodexed rom. A deodexed roms are usually Custom Roms. Stock Roms are odexed Rom. Go to your file explorer like Root explorer etc. Go to system/app and you can see your system apps there if you cant see any .odex file and only .apks then your deodexed already. Here's the link for our themes http://forum.xda-developers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=1369. Too many and i tell you, you cant really you choose from them LOL. Just try all those themes who suits your taste. A corresponding theme has its way on how to flash it. Just read Carefully though its not dangerous.

    How To Go Back to Stock Rom from Alpha 4 based Roms

    Make sure you have drivers installed in your PC

    Just download DDLF2 here and flash like the old days. If not sure how, the procedure is included there http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2329200
    No more XXKPE. Flash it directly.

    Now if you want to try out other Alpha 4 Based Roms, flash first CM10 Alpha 4 by Dhiru in CWM recovery then flash the Rom you want. :) Goodluck!
