    Can can get fh13 through kies
    though kies takes forever to install

    swype became buggy
    Kies automatically updated my software during a backup. I don't like nor trust Kies for F/W installations.

    Installed it over Kies this morning and so far it's worse battery life. After tweaking my phone following ICS I've been getting a battery drain of around 3% p.h. Now, exactly two hours after installing FH13 my fully charged battery is at 87%

    Just updated to official FH13 through Kies. One small difference from the leaked FH13 is that the boot screen doesn't include the "SPH-D710" wording. Hopefully, I don't have the phone shutting off while on deep-sleep on WIFI issue that some people are having even after the OTA. (That was my only issue with the leak which is why I went back to rooted FF18, otherwise FH13 was REALLY smooth).

    BTW, I'd advise people to wipe cache/data through Odin after upgrading to FH13. Also, do a battery pull and wait 15 mins. I do this every time I flash a ROM/Kernel/Modem and I don't usually have battery life issues.

    Use this tool to wipe cache/factory reset in Odin. Credit goes once again to sfhub and XDA-Developers.

    Btw, which version of the leak did you try? Trying to track this down...

    I used your rooted one click and had no problems as others have mentioned. The only bug was super user kept giving me "shell has been granted superuser permissions"

    I reverted to ek02 and otad back to ff18 and kies to fh13

    I did not have "sph d710" boot screen with your rooted one click nor with kies

    I have been getting the same. My guess is the rooting method doesn't match 100% with sfhub's... I'll try to improve on that. You can suppress the notifications though in the superuser settings or by rebooting.

    rwilco12's OC FH13 full restore unrooted

    Apparently, there may be an issue with the bootloader used in that, which caused all the issues myself and others were having with it.

    See the thread on XDA.

    I don't know much about this stuff but I saw many others were getting the su problem. It seemed to be more about su than your oc. I got the wifi disconnect on kies fh13

    What is your wi-fi config? Seems all the reported troubles so far have been layered security...

    I am currently running downloaded XDA FF18 with root. I probably should have done the full restore at the time, but instead I used the No Data version. Since then my phone is working so so, though experiencing some of the common issues, battery drainage and such. I have all these questions swirling around in my head, and was just hoping I might be able to get a quick yay or nay here:

    1. If I am rooted, I can't do a factory reset from the system menu on the phone, correct?
    2. If I use the autoinstaller to remove root, could I then do a factory reset?
    3. Will I get the FH13 OTA if I am on the rooted FF18?
    4. Can I install the FH13 OTA, or use the Kies method, or download the one click rooted FH13 right on top of my current FF18 rooted build?

    PS. I think I am just grappling with steps here. I'm interested in checking out the FH13, but really want to do it with a factory reset this time.

    Thanks!

    1) Not recommended - but you can download a custom recovery (like Agat68's from XDA) that is made safe from the eMMC bug.
    2) Again, it's not anything to do with root or not. It's how ICS does an erase. Samsung swears up and down that stock is safe.. but I agree with Entropy512 of XDA and don't fully trust it.
    3) Yes
    4) Yes to all of the above - or you can try FH23 as well. But will recommend doing the full restore. (See my post in ROMs, Rooting & Hacks)

    Did the bluetooth problems get fixed? That is one of the biggest annoyances for me with FF18

    Dr.
    Bluetooth is 100% better. Ive had the FH13 since Monday and have not had a problem connecting to any bluetooth device and it stays connected. Devices will connect automatically now.

    My wifi isn't turning off when in sleep mode with FH13 killing my battery. It worked fine on FF18. wifi sleep settings are correct.
    On ff18 my wifi would sleep but never resume, so I left WiFi on all the time. After upgrading to FH18 (Kies update) the WiFi would not sleep at all (using the stay on only when plugged in). I powered down and pulled the battery for about five minutes and now the WiFi is sleeping and resuming *correctly*.

    Note, I did not clear the cache or do a factory reset, I *only* powered off the phone and pulled the battery for about five minutes. Worth a shot if you haven't tried this already.

    I'd say battery life is MUCH better so far than I was getting on ff18.
