Hi,

I am having an error with the vocal commands (in French):

Commande Vocale Une erreur de serveur inattendue s'est produite. s'il vous plaît essayer à nouveau.

I don't really understand why it's happening, I'm not using the vocal functions at all! I have a Galaxy S2 X on ICS (Ice Cream Sandwich)

Je sais que c'est relié aux serveurs de Google! Peut-être un problème de leur côté ou une mise à jour automatique qui a mal tourné

Translation of my latest comment: I know the issue originates from Google servers . They probably encoutered an issue or it could be caused by some automatic update .

What version Android are you presently running Sa Sara? To find out, go to Settings > About device, then scroll down and locate the Android version.

The latest version Android is JellyBean 4.1.2 and should be available for your device through Samsung Kies. I noticed that Jeff is running ICS. The OS upgrade adds many new features and should correct the vocal command problem you're experiencing.

If you don't already have Kies, you can download it from the link below.

@Philosoraptor: Sadly I even tried Windows XP SP3 compatibility mode. I'm sorry to tell you I learnt that wayyy before I finished my BCS.

@Jeff:

How about setting up a VirtualBox install of XP or 7 for these purposes. I know it's a hassle, but should do the trick if all else fails.

Yeah I have a laptop with W7 on it. I just didn't want to upgrade the cellphone for such a small issue. My girlfriend has 25 to 50 apps she uses everyday... And that would be my job to install them again ;)

I guess I lucked out, after training Win 7 to interact with Kies the whole process took 26 minutes from start to finish. Using the Odin flash method, 16 minutes.

Even if you don't upgrade the OS, a rooted device + custom recovery + nandroid backup saves the entire system; all apps, system and user settings including any device customizations (i.e. backgrounds, wallpapers, etc.) accounts, photos, music and contact info and stores everything to the microSD card.

A rooted device becomes very useful when you want to disable or delete problematic apps. I'll throw in the disclaimer that rooting will void the manufacturer's warranty. However, the rooting process is fully reversible, the device can be un-rooted if it needs to be returned for repair or warranty work.

The battery calibration issue has been resolved by performing a factory reset right after the new OS is installed, I also used Darkside Superwipe prior to installing the new OS. I'm running 4.1 on a rooted S2x and I can easily get a full day of moderate usage out of the device.

Your point is well taken, a problem like this shouldn't require a complete OS overhaul and the user should have the ability to turn off problematic apps or features.

Rikkster: Thank you very much for the detailed information about your backup method, I will most likely use it sooner or later (I'm a backup freak).

Bree one of the posters did the following settings on his phone and he confirmed that everything went so far good for him http://community.koodomobile.com/kood...
If you have an Android phone try this Android Voice Commands Fix Tip
1.Choose “Menu” and then “Settings”
2.Choose “Applications” then “Manage Applications”
3.Find a way to “Show All” your Apps in this “Manage Applications area”
4.Scroll to find the App called “Voice Search” and Select it
5.Press the “Clear Data” button (yes, do it)
6.Go Home
7.Go to the Market and Search for the “Voice Search” App by Google
8.Select the Free “Voice Search” App and Download it or Update it to your phone
9.If asked, say “Yes”, you are OK letting Google watch your voice commands corrections

just to add to what mentioned above

Are you running Android 4.1.2. or 4.0.4.? To check, go to: Settings > About device - scroll to Android version.

Ok just to clarify, do you have the S2 or the S2x? The reason I ask, is that the S2 and S2x are two different devices. In the same area as above (About device), look for the Model number. If it's an S2x, the model number should read SGH-T989D.

The current Android operating system for both devices is Jellybean 4.1.2. You have ICS (or Ice Cream Sandwich) version 4.0.4. If you have the S2, it can perform an OTA or over-the-air update, meaning you don't need to tether it to a computer to upgrade the device.

Go to About Device > Software updates. If the Software updates option doesn't appear at the very beginning of the menu, you have the S2x.

The S2x needs to be tethered to your desktop or laptop computer via usb in order to download the 4.1.2. upgrade to your S2x. You'll need to download a free application called Samsung Kies.

Once you download and install Kies and it finds your device, it will notify you of the update. The update/upgrade takes approximately half an hour. You will be prompted prior to upgrading as to what you want to save, i.e. contacts, files, music and photos.

Samsung Kies

The OS upgrade should address the Voice Search issue. I'm running several Android devices with the JellyBean 4.1.2. upgrade, I can honestly say that I have never run into the Voice Search error or where it randomly activates for no reason.

Samsung Kies takes a little getting used to, if you encounter any problems during the upgrade process, let us know and we'll do our best to walk you through it.
