Samsung Captivate Glide Update PROBLEM!

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

Does AT&T support monitor these threads?   I don't understand why there isn't a reply on what is being done to fix this, and when.   My wife just got this phone a week before the "upgrade" (ha) and is already ready to toss it.

No, this forum is for customers to help other customers. As far as I know, this isn't meant to be an official support channel.

According to my son (a symantec employee and social media tech) any responsible company would be paying attention, especially to a forum which is hosted on their website. I guess we know how ATT views their customers. :-(
Although, I think this is a samsung problem as well...

Ah, the beauty of the oligopoly. AT&T doesn't need to care about its customers! For every annoyed customer who leaves, there's an annoyed Verizon/Sprint/TMobile customer who arrives. That's also why the prices never come down....

Interesting to note-
the link to the ICS update now says: "The update for the Samsung Captivate Glide has been put on hold while Samsung works to optimize the update for our users."
So, they're working on it--I hope we'll get relief soon!!! (Have more hope in Samsung than ATT)

This is an official fix from XDA. It worked flawlessly on my Captivate Glide ICS 4.0.4
-Keyboard illuminates
-eliminated error messages also
I rooted my phone with SU 3.2 RC3 first, then applied the fix.

Re: Samsung Captivate Glide Update PROBLEM!

I have no problems with calls or texting, or really anything vital. I occasionally get multiple texts, and the keyboard doesn't light up.

If you are having phone problems, you NEED to do a factory reset. Back up everything then do it!!! All other problems disappeared when I did this (yes-it was a pain in the butt, but solved soooooo many initial problems.)

Re: Samsung Captivate Glide Update PROBLEM!

This is the chat info I got with a Samsung tech support operator about getting Gingerbread back on my phone... Just FYI

 

 

Suzanne: I am sorry for the inconvenience. I will be happy to help.

Suzanne: As most of the users after updating the device are experiencing multiple issues, in this case please contact any near by AT&T store and get the device re flashed to Android 2.3.

Visitor: So I have to go to AT&T store to fix this? Will they fix it? I don't want them saying "No,. you have to contact samsung"

Suzanne: Yes, they will re flash the device firmware back to Android 2.3.
