    Congrats bro, enjoy the beautiful and fluid 8.1.1 on your Ativ S :)
    Hi Norris,
    Hi anyone who can help me with the following problem:

    My phone is working great after flashing the ROM and getting the 8.1.1 update and I have no complaints whatsoever. Just a question for anyone who can answer.

    I can't use the "project my screen" function wirelessly on my Samsung Ativ but it connects perfectly on my backup windows phone which is a Nokia Lumia 635.

    Here are the pictures from my Samsung Ativ when I try to connect:
    ativ1.jpg
    And
    ativ2.jpg

    Here are my screenshots from Nokia and as you can see it has already connected to my TV:
    nokia1.jpg

    And
    nokia2.jpg

    You can also see that in my Nokia Windows phone's advanced settings, I have a "fix" button but I don't have that on my Samsung Ativ S.

    Any thoughts on how to get my Samsung to project to the screen wirelessly?

    Thanks very much

    I was forced to flash back a GDR3 ROM ...
    I lost my original CSC (I never understood what it was as it was showed as an empty string ... )

    Now I can't get the Samsung Firmware update any amore ...

    I tried both ATO and BTU and I tried changing region to Sweden or England.

    Some one could tell me what should I do to trigger the firmware update ?

    My phone just updated and started continuously rebooting.

    Tried press Down key and power and get a electric sign and a cog?

    Any ideas how to get it to load past the windows logo!
    Sorry the hear that.

    Looks like you hit the same problem as me. Infinite rebooting. The only way I resolved this was to flash back to WP 8 GDR 3 and change CSC to NEE and upgrade back to WP 8.1.1. (Be careful when doing this as it could brick your phone)

    I used the instruction on the following thread to revert back to WP8 GDR3

    I flashed GDR3 to have my Ativ S back :( infinite reboot
    Which CSC you choose when you flashed back to GDR 3?

    I performed the procedure a few days ago. But I used NEE instead (read NEE receive WP 8.1 updates quicker) of my original CSC code (TGY) which was not listed in the software.

    That's normal, cuz when your lock screen is password protected, if you tap let's say Wi-Fi, it will toggle the wifi, but if you tap it twice (double tap), it should be getting you to the Wi-Fi settings, but since your screen is pass protected it will ask you for the password. Same goes for Bluetooth, Camera and Rotation Lock, cuz they are quick toggles, they don't go deeper than that.
    Alternatively you can switch that off from settings, so the only time you can swipe down the Notification Center is when your device is unlocked. Hope I made it clear, cuz i was about to go to sleep and i am very sleepy atm, but i saw your question and had to answer you. :)
    Boris,

    Thanks for interrupting your sleep to reply. I think I did not explain myself properly in my previous post.

    I have a password set on the my lock screen. With my locked without entering the lock screen password, I am able to access the Action Centre and when I put camera icon there I can startup the camera and take a picture.

    But my phone is still locked with password!!! Not sure if its a ATiV S or WP 8.1.1 problem?

    As I remeber from reading this thread before (maybe things changed or I'm wrong) updating from WP8 GDR3 to 8.1.1 was problematic, you may get software update, but no firmware update... so as it is suggested in first post in this you should instead flashed GDR2 (ATO), then get OTA GDR3 and finally get official 8.1.1 with firmware.

    Good explanation Dusan, I was about to suggest Dragone the same. Guess Dragone get the MS update but left with the firmware from WP8 GDR3.

    I did understand you good, that is not a flaw, that is how it supposed to be with the OS.
    The thing that you can access your cam is because, there is also an option for the camera to be launched with long press on the physical cam button even when the phone is locked. So, it had to be the same when you lunch the camera from notification center when your phone is locked. It's the same operation but lunched from different places, understand?
    Hope I made it more clear for you now, cuz now i am not sleepy like I was the other night, lol :)))

    Me too! I was on CSC ATO WP 8.1 Update 1 (not PfD) and it had been working perfectly for the last few weeks. Today it installed an update and went into the reboot loop. I've had to downgrade and have now allowed it to update again. Fingers crossed!

    Thx very much for your reply.

    Any idea why they have that feature in the settings if the hardware is not ready for it?

    Thx again

    You can use USB projecting and mirror the screen to you PC, I quite like that functionality - while you are having the phone connected to the PC it is charging plus you can then play with it on your PC. You need the following program on your PC:
    Download Project My Screen App for Windows Phone from Official Microsoft Download Center

    Good explanation Dusan, I was about to suggest Dragone the same. Guess Dragone get the MS update but left with the firmware from WP8 GDR3.
    Great, so I was right when I recommended flashing to GDR2, in another thread, and then moving to Samsung 8.1.1.

    Hello, the reboot loop happened to me as well and I followed the steps from the first post, restored WP8 GDR2 and then installed all the updates until the last one - WP8.1.1. But there was no fix actually, it started rebooting again...
    I think the reboot happens because the battery is dropping at 2% all of the sudden when the phone is used. If I take out the battery and leave it for 10 minutes, then it works and battery meter goes normal. With minimal usage it functions ok, but if I'll use it for more than 10 minutes, the battery drops at 2% and the phone begins to reboot itself. I was a WP fan, but my next phone will be with Android. I hope Microsoft will resolve the issue, though.

    I flashed back to GDR3 and now have the latest firmware through updating. (Fortunately, I didn't login to PfD afterwards.)

    Try with a new ATIV S battery, make sure it's original cuz NFC chip is inside the battery, not the phone. If your problem occur's again, than, it something with the phone. Maybe the battery is the problem. Just sayin'... :)

    No, I have turned off updating until I hear that the problem has been fixed. Phone is now on WP 8.1 Update 1 and is working well as before.

    Cause the new update (causing the boot loop) is only for PfD

    Twigglett12 may be on the official version of WP8.1 Update 1 and not the PfD so therefore the boot loop won't be a problem.

    I don't have where to try with another battery and I won't buy one just to try it.
    Doesn't seem strange that until now I haven't any issues with the battery? I think it's too much of a coincidence for my battery to broke and make my phone go to a restarting loop. Initially I thought my phone was broke but then I've found all you guys having the restarting problem after the update.
    But if there was a problem with the battery, wouldn't just drain fast and that's it? I think it's a software problem because it shows me low battery but if I restart or soft reset the phone, it goes back to showing the real value. When I've had issues with the battery draining on my older phones, the battery just didn't last, it didn't made all this glitches.
    Anyone else noticed this or is it just me?
    Those who had reflashed GDR2 and then made the updates, your phone is working normally, just as one week ago?

    Dude the problem is related to the pfd update. Revert back to production release (GDR2, then 8.1.1 with official non pfd updates) and you shall have no issues.

    Like I've said in my first post, I've followed the instructions of this thread and flashed GDR2 and then did all the official updates and I have the same issue. When I use my phone more than 10 minutes, the battery drops to 2% and starts a rebooting loop. Took the battery out and put it back on after a while and the behaves normally until the next "big" usage when it will do the same...

    Just to ask since i didn't see you mention. Did you do a hard reset of the phone? If not, then do it, see if that helps. If that doesn't helps, we'll see some other solutions to fix your problem. No worries. :)
