    8. Backup your important files, then turn your galaxy y off, press power button+volume up+function button until the phone power up. Select wipe data/factory reset using volume key and function button then clear cahce then reboot ypur phone.

    9. This must be a hardware problem with your phone vibrater as lcd screen test is not doing anything after pressing vibration button

      so you must take it to the Samsung service center

    10. that is not jellybean, my phone has the real jelly bean.Guide :
      Go to system/build.prop
      Change version info to 4.1.1

      This ofc won't get you a real jellybean, only an info @ settings and the above ROM is gingerbread actually

    11. make pressure on dead pixels with something soft that wouldn't damage your screen.You can also do it with your hands but make sure your screen & hands are clean.If this doesn't work for you, download some app called (im not sure) dead pixel or something like that on the play store and keep your screen on while it keeps changing colors, this may unlock locked pixels.You gotta wait a lot though

    12. same thing here and i've bought this phone only around 6 months ago, not worth any money i paid for it, its GPU is powerful but driver is shit, vibration totally fcked though i don't use it a lot, we r struck in gingerbread and broadcom won't release the driver we want, the driver that would make our phones so fast, but if they release a driver for 2.3.7 we still won't be able to get the max performance out of this GPU.we need the sources…

      As you have hard reset your phone several times so its not a software problem.
      So there must be some hardware fault in your hand set

      So its better to take it to a nearest service centre

      Also make sure you phone does not get heated up
