Bhavicp: Got my xtreme guards today. Took me a while (and 2 protectors) but managed to get it on. The front is quite hazy, but I expect it to dry up by tomorrow. The back seems fine.


The screen is clearer today, but the feel of this, and most screen protectors is horrid!

 

I've just pulled mine off, and just left the back guard.  Is yours still on?  I prefer the silky smooth glass feel.

Is anyone else having luck with Navigon today?  I was just browsing the market, came across Navigon Samsung Australia(on the PC side).  Had tried it yesterday and got Not Compatible with all devices/or country.  Today it installed.

Downloaded both NZ/AU maps to my SD, seems to work fine!  Gives me the option for a 4.2 update, but when i hit it says product doesn't exist in store.  

Not rooted, no market enabler, completely stock 2Degrees GSIII



I just tried to install myself but getting not compatible with all devices or country too. No luck like you though.
I have version 3.6.0 on the phone currently but would like latest update. Any way to get it?

Why is it that Australia get their phones come with Navigon preinstalled but we get nothing? I actually sent an email last week to Samsung NZ asking why this is but they have not bothered to reply to me.

My version says 4.0.2

only other way to get it would be to root, then change the market code to Vodafone AU, I think

I'm holding off on rooting/doing too much to my phone at the moment due to be on call, and not having a backup phone. Once I source a secondary phone, then I'll probably root it

Ninphetamine kernel (amazing)

Different modem

Sorted. Cool


Amazing in what way? 

What modem? 

What differences did you notice?



Ninphetamine just makes everything that wee bit snappier - not that it was slow in stock form!  I've flashed the BVLE4 modem, as I had good success with the Orange modems on the SGSII.

Will flash Wanamlite over the weekend probably.  Does anyone have a link to the 2degrees ROM?




Life is mostly froth and bubble, two things stand like stone - kindness in another's trouble, courage in your own.

SGSIII
ROM: WanamLite v1.3    Kernel: Ninphetamine v1.1.0   Modem: DXLEA

SGSII (Now belongs to SWMBO)
ROM: WanamLite v12     Kernel: Siyah v3.3.2   Modem: BVLPB

SGS
 (Cat's chew toy)

If you need a download-mode jig ASAP, you're welcome to borrow mine!  Works with SGS I/II/III.  I also have a SIM cutter available (Dunedin) - happy to post either to you at your cost.

Yeah, It's clearer today but still not 100%. And I agree, the feel of this particular protector isn't smooth. It's more soft, and i think that's where it gets it "grip" from.

I had a previous protector on which I was quite happy with (apart from the fact that the edges weren't sticking properly. Still got like 5 of them left, so will probably put that back on, and sell these ones on TM.

Mine haven't even turned up yet. It might be the extra time to reach the South Island. It's a long long way, apparently.

I downloaded the stock rom.  The only difference I can see is that the default Browser is set to go to a 2degrees site.  Can't find anything on the net about the CSC 19300NZCALE5 though.

So did you get one of the European variants of ALE8?

When I downloaded it, there weren't all those variations, just the one.  I don't know which I have.  I haven't flashed it yet.

Doesn't seem you can unroot without having to flash a stock rom. So this will be difficult if I can't get the CSC back to NZC.  I can't extract the CSC. I'm not clever enough to understand all that stuff on the XDA site explaining how to do so.

To unroot simply flash stock kernel back and you're done. Then remove CWM and SuperUser. Nothing hard.
CWM and SuperUser are removed from system file.

Once you've flashed the stock Kernel, what method are you using to get to the system folder?  I wont be able to use Root Explorer to get to the System folder.  Are you using ADB commands?  I've found some videos on YouTube so I'll have a gander at those in my lunch break.  Thanks for the pointers :)

You can use ADB command. Or you can do a factory reset lol.

Yep, got all that :)  According to Chainfire, the Device Status of "Modified" wont go away unless you flash a stock ROM and reset.  You'll want rid of the "Modified" if you're going for Warranty.

I've no problem flashing a stock ROM, but I come back to the problem of not having the NZC CSC to apply. It's not in the XXLE8 stock firmware.

You should be able to remove CWM & Superuser before you flash stock via Odin
