    Default 4.2.2 and Netflix

    After I got the OTA to 4.2.2 last week, Netflix has been pretty choppy and buffers quite a bit. Before, I didn't have this problem. Is anyone else having this problem after the update?

    This is my first post, by the way. I have had no other real issues with the new update. I just like the fact you can app2sd now without rooting. Anyway, thanks.

    There is no update for the app. I couldn't uninstall and reinstall since it is an app that was built in.

    I did uninstall the update and try that way. After that, it didn't work at all. I may have to wait until Netflix does an update. Thanks for your quick reply, by the way.

    Back-up your tab and perform the advised factory reset.

    After that your tab will be running like a dream.

    I have a question about that: Will I lose anything as far as stuff that are saved on games? Also, what is the best way to back everything up? Thanks for your reply!

    Hi Darin Gallagher,
    There are plenty of different ways to back up your tablet.
    But really the simplest way to do it is using the software already installed on the tablet.
    1- Google account
    2- Samsung backup
    3- Dropbox.
    4- Kies

    Google will restore your apps and your contacts, etc.
    Samsung will restore your settings, etc.
    Dropbox the best way to save your media, etc.
    You can also use kies on your pc to back your stuff.

    All the stuff stored on the external sd card is safe and will not be affected by the factory reset.

    if your games are online? Than there shouldn't be any problem as the servers will remember the level you playing. But yes you might have a problem with offline games.

    Sorry if my explanation is not clear enough,
    But just look in the "settings / cloud / back up and restore" in your tablet and all should be explained.

    I had the same problem with Netflix buffering on my GT2. Followed your advice and performed a backup, factory reset then restore. So far Netflix is operating normally. Thanks for your recommendation on how to resolve this issue.

    Glad to hear it! I still haven't had the time do do this yet. I am glad to see people that have had the same problems then getting them resolved.

    I just did the factory restore and am currently reinstalling all of my stuff. Netflix updated and I signed in. It is working well now. Thanks for everyone's help with my issue! I really do appreciate it!

    Android firmware updates need a factory reset after performing the update on the device.
    That is important for the integrity of the update to take effect... otherwise the old links will conflict with the new ones and resulting in software crashes and malfunctioning apps.

    Not many people are aware of that but in part is fault of the manufacturer's not advertising the issue.
    But just keep that in mind for future reference.

    Good to know. I was not aware of that. It would be a good thing for the manufacturers to tell us this after each update. On another note, I did lose saved stuff on one of my games. I had gotten pretty far on it too. Oh well. Such is life. I think I would rather have my Tab running better, so this was a big plus. Thanks again, Smokey!

    So I did the factory reset, let it update everything and Netflix and hulu are still laggy. Anyone have a fix?

    Now that you mention it, my Netflix is kind of laggy too, even after reset. Hopefully something will give soon.

    Anything? Anyone? It seems to be the only app that I have the problem with.

    I may have come to the conclusion that my internet here isn't the fastest for running Netflix. It is only a 3 mbps connection. What gets me is that it ran with no problem before the update. I cleared the app data which helped for about 15 minutes, then it started stuttering and buffering again. I have no problems with any other video apps, especially YouTube, which everyone seems to have a problem with. I may just have to cancel my Netflix subscription if this doesn't get resolved. Hey, it'll save me 8 bucks a month.

    4.2.2 hasn't been good to me either, my tab stutters and lags when it used to be near perfect and hulu and Netflix are completely unusable even after reset. Does any one have a solution other than rooting?

    Btw its not just hulu and netflix for me, the lock screen lags and scrolling through the various screens stutters and lags as well

    It's basically just Netflix for me. I have another video steaming app that runs pretty well without the stuttering. I don't have any problems with lock screen or scrolling either. Seems like it's hit and miss with these Tabs.
