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.

could somebody write down what is the modification in the modifyed offical 2.3.4? i dont find any info for it.
Yes, Waqas,kindly advise if the official modified 2.3.4 is better than the 23 July unofficial 2.3.4 ROM, please? My main reason for upgrading is to avoid the random shutdowns which have`worsened after upgrading to 2.3.3.

Is the modified official 2.3.4 better than the unmodified unofficial 2.3.4?

In my experience and observation , its better but don't mark my words , try it , there is no harm to try it ....

I have been reading your problem since your first post ...

Please follow these steps..

Do a fectory reset , Install modified 2.3.4
after flash completes (never dissconnect your device until 'PASS' is written on ODIN)
Do a fectory reset again ...

In WIFI settings , set sleep to never ... and connect with your regular wifi router , for all other connections must click forget

I have faced same problem but i alwasy fectory reset before and after flashing it avoids glitches ..

rendom shut down could be due to hardware or software , i have told you software solution , hardware problem could be with wifi chip , and quick tip put a small paper behind your battery , sometimes bettery gets loose and it could cause rendom shut down , and freez...

is there a way to disable sound of volume buttons in stock rom?

No, not that i found.
But you can change or replace the audio.ogg files.
If you reedited them with a somekind of audioediting program, you can create your own sound or you can change ( the volume ) the original ones.
...................don't fotget to backup the originals first..............

    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 ...
