Hi.

My Galaxy S2 is automatically going into Dock Mode at random times and sometimes thinks it's charging when in my hands. I just tried to clean out the micro USB socket with compressed air which appeared to make dock mode happen more frequently.

Before I return it to Telecom I was wondering if anyone has the stock firmware which the phone shipped with including all the Telecom stuff - I didn't realise I could take a backup before I started on my first Android flashing.

Thanks

I don't have the Official TNZ ROM, But I am assuming you have tried doing a Factory Data Reset or flashing with another Generic ROM to rule out the issue been software related?

But just so you know, If you get Telecom to send the phone away (to Telegistics) for repairs you would be charged a Minimum $55 Out of Warranty Fee due to unofficial software, regardless if its hardware related or not.

This is why the OP is asking for a stock rom to flash back to original firmware. You would need to reset the flash counter too, but in theory this should restore the warranty.

Get someone who has a i9000T on stock firmware to type in *#1234# on their dialler. This will display the PDA, Phone and CSC version numbers. Take this information and enter it into CheckFUS and this will download that rom from the Samsung servers.

Just informing OP of what his options are if he cannot get the TNZ ROM, and ensure is aware of potential charges.

Last I checked the TNZ ROM for the i9100T cannot be downloaded via CheckFUS, As there is no update to download.

Good point re the flash counter, I will follow up and see if this impacts the warranty or not. Otherwise you would need a JIG cable to reset, or could try via alternative methods on XDA Forums.

Thank you both for your replies.

I'll try find someone with a stock SGS2.

I've reset it back to 2.3.4 from 2.3.7 (I think) to check if the problem still occurs. It does.

Do Telecom care that their standard installed apps are not there or are you allowed to update the software just not root.

Cheers,

Could go either way regarding the flash counter. Providing you have the official TNZ ROM with correct CSC,MODEM etc (not rooted) you should be OK. However depending on the root cause of the fault and work required, you could be left with a minimum $55 service fee.

Guess this is the risk people take with flashing :)

Excellent.

I'm not fussed by the $55 fee more the thought of not having a warranty for something that isn't software related.
