  5. Put your phone in download mode(Now press volume down key+ home key + power button together simultaneously for few seconds until you get haptic feedback from your phone i.e. until your phone vibrates to enter download mode. Now press volume up key to confirm that you want to proceed ahead when asked to do so on the screen.)

  4. You do not need to take backup for flashing . All your data is intact after flashing.
    But before Factory reset you should take a backup as it would be wiping your phone completely.
    To be on the safe side always take data backup.

  5. I do the factory resect only if i have problem??
    How i do a complete and good backup without root permissions?Thanks :)

  6. You cannot do a complete backup of phone but SD Card.
    For phone you can take back up of Messages Contacts Applications by other software available in Google Play.
    You have to re install all softwares once you do factory reset

    1. Its a serbian version but can be applied to any region. Yes you need to do factory reset only if you face issues like network problem or laggy screens. I would suggest wipe cache option atleast to make sure your device repartion and increase the ram of your device.

  11. but this makes you lose the smartphone's warranty?

    ReplyDelete

    1. No your smartphone's warranty is intact and you donot lose it as you are not rooting the device you are just flashing it.
      Rooting Voids the warranty not Flashing
      Also you can come back to Gingerbread without rooting by following this post

      Refer this link to Downgrade to Gingerbread.

    2. But to return to Gingerbread smartphone always keep the warranty .. right? sorry but I recently purchased and would like to be 100% sure

      Delete
    3. Yes that also requires no rooting.
      Just remember one thing Flashing Doesn't Void your warranty.
      Rooting voids it.
      So even if you flash your device with Jellybean 4.1.2 and if it creates a problem in your phone you can take it to service center and ask them to install GB on that as you are still in Warranty and officially they have to help. :)

    1. No you cant install it on GT i9070P for now.
      Please wait as Samsung has announced its released date on 26th of April 2013.
