Samsung Captivate Glide Update PROBLEM!

Hello,

 

I updated my Captivate Glide to the Androd 4.0 version via the official ATT/Samsung directions found here: http://www.samsung.com/us/support/SupportOwnersFAQPopup.do?faq_id=FAQ00048593&fm_seq=53023

However, after I successfully updated my phone, I have noticed some weird bugs. First off (and the most major one), THE KEYBOARD DOESN'T LIGHT UP... That's a big bummer, does anyone know how to fix it? And also, the phone seems to lag at times when scrolling or just navigating web pages... That's just a minor issue though. But does anyone have a SOLUTION for the backligh on the keyboard not working? ATT/Samsung fix the problem please!!!!

 

Thanks

Try factory resetting... It's always good to factory reset after an update to "refresh" the OS and it usually fixes most problems... You can do that by going to Settings, then Backup/Reset

I know it's a software issue... Factory resetting usually fixes a lot of problem becuz when people update via Kies or OTA, it basically just "overwrites" the old OS and that's what I think causes some problems, but if you factory reset it will refresh the ICS update and it usually fixes problems

Did you even read what I posted or did you just delete it because of the hyperlink? Here is a text version you CAN'T delete. 

 

Evidence that factory reset won't help:

 

The thing that has nagged me, is that the backlight is correctly deactivated when the screen is locked/blanked. Anyways, I did a more thorough search for stmpe-bl in the original 2.3.6 and discovered /system/lib/hw/lights.n1.so. In the file (5k pretty small.) I found the following strings:


backlight
buttons
keyboard
lights
write_int failed to open %s
sys/class/sec/sec_stmpe_bl/backlight
/sys/class/misc/melfas_touchkey/brightness
/sys/class/backlight/pwm-backlight/brightness
NVIDIA Ventana lights module

however, in my 4.0.4 version, I found:

backlight
buttons
lights
write_int failed to open %s
/sys/class/misc/melfas_touchkey/brightness
/sys/class/backlight/pwm-backlight/brightness
SAMSUNG BOSE lights module

Notice in the newer version, the "keyboard" and sec_stmpe_bl entries are omitted. I wonder if using the 2.3.6 lights.n1.so on 4.0.4 would work?

I didn't delete your last post, I thought u did... I don't have the power to do that

And I mean in my experience and with other people... It fixes problems like those, but if u don't think it will, u should probably take it to the AT&T store for them to check and possible replace it

No, it is not. There is a fix on XDA for rooted phones, but mines isn'r rooted, so I can't do it. And those who rooted and updated to 4.0 have alot more problems.

Not only am I having the keyboard problem, I've also noticed that I can't do a screen cap anymore. My phone will allow to use all the features still and it works but is having other side effects. If I place a call, it will go through, but at the end of the call i get an error message saying that ".com" has stopped working. All i can do is press ok. Seems like AT&T jumped the gun on getting this out for the glyde.

Yes-same problems here! My phone is crashing after a call--can't make or receive calls, and disconnects from my car's bluetooth, so can't make or receive calls wirelessly while driving, without fooling with the actual phone. No keyboard backlight as well. Please, someone, assure me that they are taking care of this problem--the crashing phone is a REAL problem!!!! I am regretting I made this upgrade!

Just spent the afternoon redoing my phone after a factory reset. The phone crash problem is gone. Seems to be running a bit smoother, but keyboard backlight still does not work. Researching the problem now....we'll see if there's a fix somewhere...

Glad it made your phone smoother!
I found a fix for the backlight keyboard not working problem, but it requires flashing your phone...idk why Samsung doesnt fully test out before releasing these updates...but if you wanna try it (at your own risk), then go ahead

To fix the keyboard backlight bug, you'll need the following:
Odin 1.85
Clockworkmod Recovery
The Keyboard Backlight fix The one labeled LH2 is for the official, the one labeled CWM is for the leak. If you're not sure what you're on, go to About Phone, and check the Baseband Version, if it ends in LH2 you're on the official, if it ends in LG9 it's the leak.
Optionally, SuperUser 3.2 RC3 if you'd like root.

First, make sure you have Kies installed, so that you have the correct USB drivers. Download the 4.0.4 .exe file from here. Power off your phone, hold Volume Up and Power to turn it back on. Keep holding them until you get a screen warning you about custom software, and release, then press volume up again to enter download mode. Hook the phone up to your pc and run Odin 1.85. Uncheck "F. Reset Time" and make sure that the only box checked is Auto Reboot, you shouldn't need to change anything else. Click on the PDA button, and load the clockworkmod .md5 file you downloaded, then press the start button and wait for the device to reboot.

This time you'll reboot into recovery. Power the phone off, hold the volume down and power button to turn the phone one. Keep holding them until you see text about entering recovery in the top left, and release. Use the volume keys to navigate and power to select, and go to Install zip from sdcard. Select the keyboard backlight fix zip. Once that's finished, if you'd like to be rooted, repeat the process to flash a zip, and this time select Choose zip from sdcard, selecting the superuser zip you downloaded earlier. Select Yes, and wait for superuser to flash. If you plan on keeping Clockwork Mod Recovery, you should make a backup now. To do so, select Backup and restore, and backup. This will take a bit, just be patient. When you're finished, select reboot system now, and you should be set.

From here, if you rooted you can install something like Titanium Backup, which will use root access to let you remove the various AT&T bloatware.

The problem with the black screen after unlocking is only temporary.  Let the phone sit for about 10 to 15 minutes and check it again.  Evidently the first boot-up takes a while to complete after the update.  I had this same problem and thought that the update crashed, but it didn't.

I read on some other forums that the people who had rooted their glide before doing the ICS update had more problems that what we are reporting here. Personally, I don't see the need for me to root my phone. It works fine the way it came. The ONLY reason that I would want to do it is to remove some of the bloatware off the phone. Outside of that I really don't care. it does everything that I want it to do.

I tried the screencap suggested by another user in this thread, but it doesn't work.

I am hoping that there release a fix for this soon. Some of the issue's have become extrememly annoying.

I stand corrected. The screencap issue is not an issue at all. It's the same process of press the lock/power button and the home screen button at the same time. You just have to press and hold both buttons. It takes about 2 seconds now, as it used to be almost instant.

Had no problems with this until I updated 2 days ago!!   UGH!!!  ALSO MY KEYBOARD DOES NOT LIGHT UP EITHER NOW.   DO THEY NOT TEST THIS FULLY BEFORE RELEASING??  OR DO THEY LIKE TO HAVE ANGRY CUSTOMERS??!!!!!!

You all need to back everything up and do a factory reset. A pain in the butt, but.... That took care of the phone problems, and the logging of calls. It did not take care of the backlight however--that is a bug that will have to be fixed. @smooth4lyfe Thank you for the instructions to fix this, but I don't think I will attempt it, at least for awhile. I think I will wait to see if ATT or Samsung will have a patch. But I'll keep the instructions just in case...

 

However, one problem I am having is periodically receiving multiple copies of tweets or texts--today I got 68 copies of a sale text from kohls. Yesterday, I got 27 copies of 1 tweet. The phone acts like it's stuck (almost like a broken record) then I'm inundated with multiples. Anyone else have this problem?

 

Thanks!

I think I will wait to see if ATT or Samsung will have a patch. But I'll keep the instructions just in case...

 

However, one problem I am having is periodically receiving multiple copies of tweets or texts--today I got 68 copies of a sale text from kohls. Yesterday, I got 27 copies of 1 tweet. The phone acts like it's stuck (almost like a broken record) then I'm inundated with multiples. Anyone else have this problem?

 

Thanks!

My phone force closes if I quickly end a call, and then I lose ALL service for five minutes... I also get mulitple copies of texts. Overall, signal reception is just horrible.

I agree, try a factory reset if you are having bugs after any update.  The process of keeping user data with an OTA is often a messy one, and bugs like this spring up.  Just reset and start from a clean slate, and you will probably find your problems fixed.

Well...received over 30 copies of a tweet, so I de-activated my screen lock pin. It seems, when I wake up my phone to check messages, the multiple messages come in, kind of like they were stuck (in limbo or something?) We'll see how that does. I get the sense that having to enter the pin is holding the messages back then they flood in. Maybe it goes into too deep of a sleep.....haha.
I still love my glide--even without the backlight--and am relatively happy with the update.

 (Although, I lost all my memos--thought they were backed up, but couldn't find them...oh well!)

Factory resetting seems to have gotten rid of my "losing service" problem, but multiple texts still come in. And the backlight still doesn't work. And the wifi toggle (slide down) doesn't work half of the time, so annoying.

Same problems here.....just received 51 copies of 1 text. Backlight of course doesn't work. Will we be notified when there is a fix, or should I try to fix myself through XDA-developers instructions? Anyone "in the know" care to respond? This is getting quite irritating...
