When Samsung released this update on April 22nd, 2013 he promessed
new expandable and actionable notifications, fast and smooth, beam photos and videos, widgets work like magic, Google Now search application more faster, I don't understand what's wrong with your phone! You can call Samsung for mor feedback on this slowness issue after you updated your phone to Jelly bean 4.1.2, there were lot of posts on this issue

Salman,

Many will say not to do this, however if your phone is rooted you can backup the image of the old rom and go back. Or even download a faster/customized rom.

For this upgrade XDA has 20 pages of discussion,

As Android grows it does not always get tweaked for best speed for older units, an upgrade/update should be done only if one knows the risks and can go back.

That's your view point,

But upgrades on phones to some are like picking a mate:


  • Some get the phone (wedding) and stay with it (rom/partner) till one dies

  • Some get the phone (wedding) and stay with it till a higher power (family, religion, law, etc) makes you move on

  • Some get the phone (wedding) and stay with it till they want to try something new and swap till their hearts content. Which could include going back to their old sweetheart (an older rom you download) even if just for a bit.



The trick is in the latter practice safe swapping.

You have taken your approach that he must live his current rom.

However Salman has stated some displeasure with his upgrade, I have said how it's possible to go back to that good old feeling (which is possible), How is that not helping?

Geoff, try to stay focused.

This is clearly a discussion about the S2x. Salman could care less about how to go about flashing antiquated roms on an S2. Sounds to me like he just wants to get his S2x fixed. The analogies you make are laughable. I'm here to volunteer my technical expertise. That's my approach. No long-winded analogy necessary.

Thanks Rikkster it was supposed to be funny, but also true.

First rule of any tech system: have a way to make and restore backups.

Didn't really see the humour there. But hey if you did it's all good. No need to educate me on that one Geoff, been in the biz long enough to know that.

A hard reset generally clears up issues where the S2x appears to run sluggishly.

Make a backup of what you want to save, the reset will wipe all saved data.

Settings > Backup and reset > place check-mark in Back up my data check box.
Place check-mark in Automatic restore check box. (both areas may already be check-marked or enabled by default).

Go to: Settings > Backup and reset > (if you scroll down, you will see Format USB storage). Tap Factory data reset.

The format USB step is optional. If you format USB storage you will lose all data, music and photos. The factory reset will restore the device back to factory and you should see an increase in performance.
