    Help!!! ICS updated and I have a flashing red border around my screen?!

    As per title..... what have I done LOL.

    Firmware used was I9100XXKP4_I9100OXAKP4 via the sam mobile site.

    I used Odin3 and although the download had 7 files, I only used the CSC, MODEM and code files.

    Can anybody help?

    Thanks
    Jason

    I can get into android system recovery and download mode

    But the phone has started playing up bad.... loads of processes crashing and non responding.

    Think I may revert to a hacked ICS version unless I can sort.

    Sorry for basic questions but just narrowing down things.

    The firmware you are using is from December and there is a more recent release for Open Europe. Have you tried flashing the firmware again or you could try I9100XXLPJ? SamMobile.com - GT-i9100 Firmware Europe

    Found this somewhere, does this sound like the problem you are having?

    Q : While using the phone dark red border is coming? How to remove that?
    A : To remove that red border goto settings > Developer options > remove check on Strict mode enabled.

    No probs at all, the amount I play around with my phone, I should stick to the basics!

    Okay, I'll give that a go with that.

    One question though....

    Obviously from reading the forum I know to steer well clear of playing with .pit files. but if the download has approx 7 files such as Modem, CSC, Phone, A?BOOT etc etc. Should I specifically use just three? or add more for better functionality.

    Sorry, missed the edit.

    strict mode is unchecked, so will definitely try re-flashing

    It did! Used the rom you linked and it actually took longer to find a copy of Odin than it did to re-flash (at home).

    Only confusion I have now is all the different roms I have located at work and home haha.

    Only downside to the ICS update... Somehow the only app not to have transferred is 'missed it' and I am missing it already.

    lol, sounds like a decent app. I know some people have been annoyed that they have missed calls or texts so am posting a link to Google Play - Missed It
