    Default Factory Reset after Jelly Bean?

    Hi, just a quick question just to be sure...

    Should I reset my SGS3 I9300 after updating to JB? Some programs are crashing on me, could resetting help?

    Is it okay to use Samsung KIES as a back-up program if I have to do the reset?

    Huge thanks!

    Backing up then a factory reset will more than likely solve you problems. Kies is absolutely fine to back up with

    Yep all apps start downloading after reset, phone settings are backed up including ringtones settings, sms, call logs and wifi passwords etc.
