    1. It's not the phone's problem. Contact your service operator. Or try 0000 or 1234 as pin. Stay connected

      Delete
    2. The Pin is provided by the service operator via sms at the time of setting been sent to you, if you haven't got the sms just contact to customer care.

  3. 1st thanks for ur reply, i tried 0000 and 1234, it's not working, asking "please input PIN". i try to configure my internet settings by receiving configuration message from BSNL, while i try to install the configuration "please input PIN" is displayed.

  18. I have a question. I flashed 4.2 and it's working fine. Root access obtained through the method you described.

    But under apps, the internal sd card is not shown. Also when i tried to transfer apps to the internal sd card through Link2SD, it didnt even show me the internal SD card option.

    Help me out?

  21. I got my Canvas HD upgraded to Jelly Bean from authorized service centre, but after upgrade the display started flickering(display goes on and off every 2 seconds). Hence, service centre reverted back to old 4.1.2.
    Even I tried to upgrade following the steps mentioned here, but same problem. I did Factory reset also. Still same issue.
    I read above few people are facing same issue, is anyone issue resolved?
    Can anyone tell me why this is happening?
    Is there any other update available which will solve this issue?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Googled the screen issue and got a temperorry fix for that i am posting here !!




    Go to settings > about phone
    Click “build number” 6 times fast
    You’ll see “you’re now a developer” as a notification at the bottom.
    Go back to settings, you’ll now see developer options above ‘about phone’.
    Go in developer options, and click “disable hardware overlays” under the drawing section

    This will fix the flickering!! The problem is with android 4.2.x, the OS gets confused and can’t decide if the CPU or the GPU should be drawing the screen, so it flickers do to it switching between the CPU and GPU real fast…
    Hope this helps anyone out there experiencing this problem, and spread the word to anyone else you know to make it known! Loads of people are re flashing, returning to stock, even returning their phones because of this bug! So spread the word to prevent others from making this mistake.
