Not sure if it has been posted before but in JB, when you open a single message from a message thread, you can zoom it just like a picture.

This works on. XXLSJ stock ROM.

Default I9100G does not vibrate after upgrade to JB

Downloaded from SamMobile JB 4.1.2 for I9100G, no problems upgrading the phone. However, when I place the phone on Vibrate it acts as if on Mute. I have reselected the settings to always vibrate and have also selected vibrate for individual apps; still does not vibrate.

Has anyone else experienced this issue? Any tricks available?

Thanks!

I dread to think what would occur if this happened in the middle of performing a firmware upgrade!!

Just remember, plug+play your GS2 isn't. It's more like plug+pray!

It shouldn't be like this.
It's a shame that such a nice phone is ruined by such poor support of the software required to use it.
Jelly bean has been horrible. I like the interfaces and the look & feel, but it is horribly slow, clunky, and full of bugs.
