  1. Hi, Just thought I'd post a reply to this topic. I took the phone back to the store, the techie advised I was still covered by the 28 day manafacture warranty so immediately replaced it after checking a few things (which I had already checked). I didn't ask, but this problem doesn't seem to be new for Galaxys as you guys are probably already aware of from the research I have done. He put it down to a faulty handset (although he only tested for thirty seconds before coming to that conclusion) and couldn't offer me a more technical explanation as to why the camera just seemed to have died. I would've preferred to have held on to the device (so I could root it and troubleshoot), as I wouldv'e liked to have known what caused it to work one day and die overnight. Fingers crossed I won't be having the same problems again. Heads up for all potential or new Galaxy owners :) Steve
  2. Hi all, Been a very long time since I've posted here, anyway I've had my S III now for about a fortnight. A few days ago, I opened the camera app and was greeted by nothing, but a black screen however the camera user interface was visible. I thought perhaps my hand was over the camera lens, it wasn't. The error message I got after waiting a little while is Warning. Camera Failed. Both cameras are affected. Troubleshooting Steps I have taken 1. I've rebooted the device 2. I've uninstalled all camera based applications 3. I've formatted the device 4. I've removed the SD card 5. I've disabled location services (I read on another forum this can have an effect) I've even tried pushing the back of the S III inwards to see if it was a loose connection to no avail. I really don't want to have to give the phone to Geek Squad for them to fix, I'd much rather give it a bash myself first. Thanks for your time, any suggestions are greatly recieved. Thanks, Steve
  3. [ROM] VegaComb 3.2 - by TeamNewCo and TeamVillain

    The blue camera light... I have it on every single ROM I've had installed. Is it a sign that something is faulty ... Only reason I ask is because Newbe 5 describes the light as The Dreaded blue light of DOOM. Whilst my camera works fine when not using Vegacomb, my microphone doesn't work on any of the Roms I use. So are the blue light and the fact my microphone doesn't work related ... Just a thought ...
  4. r8 ClockworkMod recovery not doing anything

    Hey :P Assuming you have ADB set up. Please follow the instructions found in this post : http://android.modaco.com/content/advent-v...he-advent-vega/ Scroll down to the part where it displays commands where you must input to either the Command Prompt if you're using Windows or Terminal for LInux or Mac. The Clock Work Mod will hang if you don't do what it says on that post. S
  5. As I was drifting through the Internet I came across this little article... http://www.toptechreviews.net/google/googl...an-hack-chrome/ Quote : "If anyone manages to crack Internet Explorer, Safari, or Firefox they will win $15,000. In addition, anyone who hacks Windows Phone 7, iPhone 4 or BlackBerry 6 OS will get $15,000 plus a device running the operating system." They also mentioned that if you managed to crack chrome you would recieve a $20,000 cash prize plus a netbook with there latest OS on it. Unfortunately cracking Android won't win you anything (I can hear the moans and groans) But if hacking, cracking and tapping into things is you're thing. Then here's you're chance to win some money! Have fun :P S
  6. Attaching EXT USB Hard Drive

    I don't believe there is ... I suppose if you were able to get your hard drive or USB working, the only way to tell would be whether or not the Vega recognises it. But I'm prepared to be proven wrong :P S
  7. About different version of Stock rom

    The Vega roughly lasts a day of on and off usage, and when the Vega is unplugged from the mains and not charging the touch screen works fine. So what I do and I think many others do, is recharge it overnight ready for the next day so it never has to be plugged in when it's in use. I've never used the POV rom so I can't fairly compare the two roms. But what I can say is that Corvus5 is a fantastic ROM and so is Pauls. Ultimately the decision is yours :P Which ROM will you choose :rolleyes: ... Let us know of your decision. Take care S
  8. Beginners/Non techie guide to installing Vegacomb

    Ye following on from Yogimax the main link is broken. If this guide is for non-techies you may want to fix it to avoid confusion:)
  9. About different version of Stock rom

    Flashing any ROM is like formatting you're computer. Meaning everything on the device will be wiped and replaced with the new ROM. S
  10. OMG I'm having one of these for my birthday on June 2 after begging my parents for one! I'm like you, the moment I saw it I was like WOW, surely there's some kind of mistake, but there wasn't :P Absolute steal!
  11. Looking for a smaller tablet.

    Hey, If it's honeycomb you're looking for then there currently aren't any 7 in devices out there. However! There will be for example ... http://www.pocket-lint.com/news/39972/view...b-7-inch-tablet http://www.pocket-lint.com/news/40057/acer...layed-late-2011 Also I would like to point out this little beauty which I have loved since I first saw it <_< http://www.htc.com/uk/product/flyer/overvi...#33;HTC%20flyer! That's the HTC Flyer, FANTASTIC make HTC. Yes it may not be running Honeycomb however there have been reports that soon after release an update will be shipped out to all devices allowing the install of honeycomb... apparently.... But yes, please remember Honeycomb is still a relatively new build and just because it's the new all singing all dancing OS doesn't mean it's the one for you. It's like Harry Potter, the Wand picks you. The tablet picks you. Try and go to a local shop and try out all of there tablets, you'll know when you've found the right one :P Steve :rolleyes:
  12. Best Android Phone at the Moment

    If you want my opinion then go for the HTC Desire S. Purely because HTC is a company you can rely on and they genuinely create fantastic pieces of tech because they love making it and not just because that's the way the markets going. That's my opinion :P Steve
  13. I've been using a HTC Android Device for a few months, I've never used a Windows Mobile so I can't compare. But..... Android is a very good OS. In answer to you're question no you don't need a constant Internet connection you're phone works perfectly with or without one! You can use you're orange SIM card in absolutely any phone you want, (with the exception of Apple because they thought they'd be annoying and make tiny SIM card slots) Another reason why I DETEST Apple :rolleyes: Only thing I would say about HTC Phones is be careful when picking up the phone. When you're phone rings, the screen kicks into life and sat just near the bottom of the screen is a bar. You can either slide this bar up to reject it, or down to the bottom to accept it. What I've found which is really annoying is when my phone rings and I put my hand in my pocket to grab it, my fingers slide the bar to the top and rejects calls. So annoying, however it hasn't happened many times so I haven't really looked to see if you can turn that feature off. If you can I'll let you know! I think what it comes down to is personal preference, if you're talking about the HTC Mozart Windows Phones like the one off the telly then yes it looks nice, but it's new. And do you need xbox live on you're phone? Do you ! <_< I think, no offence to windows phone as I have NEVER used one, but from what I see, Windows Phone is a really good phone, but they take the fun away by giving you everything so you never have to worry, whilst with Android you can constantly download new things, mod it and make it a totally unique phone. That's why I like Android, the sky's the limit. But if you need a phone that will work and you know you can't break unless you tried extremely hard then go for the Windows phone. If it's for work purposes then go for Windows, but if it's for mates and just plain pratting around :( Then go for Android. You can't go wrong with Android. I think I blabbed on a bit there :D Steve :P
  14. Android iPhone 4 clone

    I've always liked the sleakness of Apple's designs, but have never EVER bought an iPhone for the pure fact that I'm giving money to Apple and I hate that thought :P This actually looks pretty cool, same sleak design with an OS which in my opinion is 10 x better then IOS. I know others would disagree with that statement! :rolleyes: If I could I would have this beauty shipped to me in a jiffy! I think it's fantastic the ideas people come up with and I encourage it. Good find, cheers mate !!
