Re: Lenovo S920- Recent upgrade to KitKat 4.4 crashes phone after installation

2014-08-04, 22:51 PM

Hi Abhay,

 

Were you by any chance back in India when you were able to make the phone work again, or were you in NZ? I have a suspicion that the problem lies in the phone needing a sim card from its country of origin that is also being used in its country of origin to function correctly, at least initially.  I allowed my phone to auto-update its date and time via wi-fi, and the date and time it registered were those of the country of origin. Clearing eMMC and rebooting weren't able to wipe this tendency to associate itself with its original time zone. If only there was a way to do this...

Hey, I was in NZ when i resolved this. This should not be problem with the service provider. Other thing you can try is remove sim card and run it on some other phone and see if its working. Try to make few calls or text from other phone. If you find it  working there this means no issues with the sim card.Other things that i tried were-

1. Turn off auto update from google play.

2. Used my sim on other phone.

3. Disabled google frameworks, contacts,sim tool kits,facebook sync from settings-->app-->all

4. Used only one sim (local to NZ) in first sim slot which supports 2g/3g/.

 

You will have to try out few combinations.It should work.

Thanks

Abhay

Forgot to update one more thing- I also changed runtime off app to "Use ART" from USE Dalvik.This is how you do it-

1. Settings-->About Phone-->Vesion Information

2. Tap Build no 7 times. You will see "now you are developer"

3. Now gp back to settings--->Developer Option

4. Select "Use ART".Phone will reboot automatically.

 

TRY doing this. Cheers- Abhay

After a whole night of trying to fix this issue, I just decided to flash the ROM back to Android 4.2.1. I don't think I will upgrade again to Kitkat as it has too many issues with Lenovo s920.

I went to lenovo service center to tell about my camera problem..they agreed that Lenovo s920 has problems after upgradation to kitkat version not only s920 but other lenovo phones also facing this problem.They told that lenovo will fix these bugs in future firmware upgrades..but i am very dissapointed even though they may fix in future..they suggested if i want, they can revert back my kitkat version in to previous jelly bean version,then every thing works fine as before.So i am confused whether i revert back my version or not...
