Hi, Thank you for your help it was really useful. I hadn't loaded my contacts onto the phone which was another reason why it wouldn't work.

Thanks again.

Default SAMSUNG Galaxy 551 original ROM

Hi everyone,

Got my Galaxy 551 recently.

My first smartphone and really good.

In excitement I rooted it , then ran ROM Manager.


And just broken the working of my Back Button

Now please if anyone can help by providing Original ROM backup of their phone.

It will be really helpful in this condition as without back button, a lot apps keep running until I end them from task manager.


Please help.

Thanks in Advance

Before Flashing ,reboot in recovery and perform a factory reset.
Or run these codes
*2767*3855# – Hard Reset
*#*#7780#*#* – Factory Reset
If you managed to install clockwork mod recovery then I am already impressed .If not then go to this link and Flash using odin.
Else go to care centre and have it replaced
P.S :If you have managed to install clockwork mod recovery please post the tutorial on this site.
Disclaimer : Factory and Hard reset wipes off data.Use at your own risk.You and only you are responsible for following these Instructions

Thanks karandpr!!! you saved my life!! I was trying to activate the ad hocs networks, as you may know, the phone just does not see them, just APs. I read that by replacing that file with another, the phone can, however, I didnt notice that I downloaded the Galaxy S version, not the 551, and it was failing.

I kept looking and I dont see one for my model. Have you heard something to fix that?

Thanks again for your file, it is working now!

Interesting.I dont suppose file of SGS will make a difference since both use the same wpa version 0.6.10 .But from what I know (and tried ),0.5.11 does an infinite reboot and 0.6.10 crashes.

Hi guys,

I get annoying phone calls from a particular number and I intend to block all calls and messages from that number. Also,I don't want any sort of notifications regarding calls from that number. Are there any features within the phone which I can use? I've tried call blockers from the Android market,but I still get missed call notifications. Any free app which blocks call without calls featuring in the call log.

Please help.

Thanks,
DG

Default battery life

hey i just bought a samsung galaxy 551 a week ago and even when i have charged the phone for 3 hours the battery widget doesnt show the battery to be 100% and EVEN if sometimes the battery level goes to 100 , when i unplug the charger and use the phone for like 5 minutes , the battery drops to 80% , besides the battery doesnt last 24 hours of moderate use, is it just me or anyone else having the same problem or maybe the battery life of this phone is not so good, any suggestions will be appreciated .

Try the blacklist app from market.
Handcent and Chomp can hide notifications for blacklisted sms.Blacklisted sms is saved in spam folder.
I dont think you can totally block a number .Notifications in missed call will come since Phone is integrated in android system

Almost 20-30 p.c forum is filled with battery complaints .Check the forum on how to save battery.Wait for 2 months you will adjust.

Check this thread for Live wallpapers.
Flash wont run on this phone for eternity or till adobe decides to make flash available for V6(Eternity).Flash lite and Skyfire are your options if you want flash.
If you have rooted the phone ,change the minimum limit of processor to 320 or 480 Mhz .It will consume more battery but games will run smoothly.

The same way you remove a normal app from

A.)Settings ->Applications ->Manage Applications - > uninstall

B.)Task Manager - > Package -> uninstall

C.) Astro File manager/Andexplorer -> uninstall application.

Now I dont know if where you live .Chances are some apps have been slipped in your ROM by your carrier. Then you will have to resort to Flashing generic ROM from samsung. .

Of course it is.LG op1 has ported CM 7 and is expected to have a 2.3 update in july or so.
Samsung is not interested in giving us any updates ,so we are stuck to froyo.(Maybe forever).
Compatible ,yes,feasible ,no.

Thats all I can say till now.

after shooting each bird you have to wait for while until you see the the remaining birds on the left. if you shoot and instantly move to the left for next shooting, it will became slow

The complaints are mostly due to fact we have purchased this phone at 12500-13500 ($250-$270)range.So this phone was compared to Wildfire or Optimus One and Galaxy 3.
Now you can get it for 10K which puts it in the league of Galaxy pop, XCD 28 and Optimus One.

Samsung is not clear in which category does 551 belong.On one hand Ace,Fit,Gio,Mini/pop are going to get 2.3 update ,on the other Galaxy 3 and 5 are not going to get it.551 is nowhere mentioned.

About battery ,it improves as times go on and you get smarter.I have used it for 3 days w/o recharge.
Support wise samsung sucks.The care centre are of bunch of clowns.

Software support wise.KIES is pathetic.
Froyo 2.2.1 stable and working release was released yesterday.For belgium.I have installed it and it's way better than the original ROM.

It's a good phone if you are not into breaking warranties and installing custom mods.The keyboard is decent and the fact that 551 is the ONLY mid range phone with keyboard.

Either way it's a good phone.The only other alternative is LG Optimus One .

Android phones unlike any other are strongly dependent on manufactures
HTC>> LG> Samsung > Sony Ericsson >> Others is the trend of software support.

Dont indulge in warez ,developers work hard .
This is a mid range smartphone ,so dont expect HD games to run.240 x 400 is not a resolution to play HD games.

Smile re: Battery not charging

Usman

The problem is memory effect. When you charge goes down to 80% don't plug it back into the charger - it will only charge the delta between 100-80.

If you want to regain your battery capacity, let it fully drain first to ZERO and then charge it fully.

This is explained more in depth here:

Memory effect - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Default Hii

Hii all,

I am a new owner of Samsung Galaxy 551 from Vapi in Gujarat (India) and I am loving it till now.


The only issue I faced is about the low battery life.

But overall, excellent mid range phone.

BTW, How do you upgrade to Froyo 2.2.1 in India? 2.3 is not possible i guess for galaxy 551

Post Hi

Hi,

I am from Hosur (Bangalore), I bought this phone in Jan. Some of my experiences.

1. Low memory. - Rooted with z4root, created second partition on my 32GB sd card, moved apps (linked technically) from phone to SD card using link2SD. Now I have 2 GB of memory to install apps.

2. Phone hangs now and then - Not sure what is the issue, I have to reboot by holding power button. This was the same case even before rooting. Any help?

3. Wifi disconnects. Going to next room disconnects the Wifi, my cousin has Samsung ACE and it has good wifi and no disconnects. Need help/pointers for this too...

4. Galary takes time to load - Used 'SD speed Increase' to set SD read buffer to 2MB from 128kb. (Needs root access).

Thanks,
VRC.

I have a Galaxy 551 but the notification rings are way too short and I am always missing my texts. There is no where on phone to lengthen or get it to repeat every minute or so.. any answers?? Also, the vibration is very soft and there are no settings for that as well?? Very new to all this .. is there an app for these issues?? (longer notification ring, repeat notification ring??)
