    hi everybody.
    i tried to change the value in the registry but it wont work.
    i checked for 10 times if i write the next code correctly:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINES\Software \ Microsoft \ Shell \ OEM \ Start
    ScreenSize=1.

    and it did not work for me.
    i wrote capital letters and without it-same.
    i have interoped my ativ s and i have gdr3 with the latest firmware update.
    just to mention, i tried to read the registry key but it wont change to 1. it's still 0.

    what could the problem be?

    UPDATE: NOW I SEE I CANNOT CHANGE ANY REGISTRY VALUE AFTER UPDATING TO GDR3. what can i do to solve it?
    i removed DIAGNOSIS APP and reinstalled it but it wont open the registry editor.
    i performed a restart to my phone but it wont help.

    thanks a lot.

    Samsung closed the registry app with GDR3.

    I really don't care about unlocking (jailbreaking) my device. I just wanted the 3 rows, so if anyone knows a solution or can work on one, please help!

    OP if you want the 3 rows, you need to flash the GDR2 firmware to revert back. Do the unlock and update again, and this time do it so you keep the unlock.

    I had ATIV S with GDR2. I have unlocked using "Interop_Unlock_Helper_Debug_ARM.xap", then installed "EnableAllSideloading_Release_ARM.xap" and finally installed "BootstrapSamsung_Release_ARM.xap". I verified everything to ensure that all activeities success AND it did success.

    I could change registry values for three columns as it did not exist in GDR2, I installed "wphTweaksWP8.xap" and "SamWP8_Tools_Debug_ARM.xap" to modify the same but failed because of missing registry entries. So I decided to update GDR3.

    Now I have GDR3 with all above apps installed but nothing is working. So I dont know how I can enable 3 column start screen even if I again flash to GDR2.
