Hi ! Anonymus........Downloading mode is gained by pressing Vol -, Power key and Home button mode simultaneously. If you press Vol +, Power Key and Home button it will be Recovery mode. Be clear here. There is no option of downloading mode in recovery.

So I received the ota jelly bean update on my German gnote and I had lock screen shortcuts once it booted up and I was going through the new features. The phone is very very laggy so I did a factory reset, like I always do after an update on all my android phones . Once I finished the set up the lock screen shortcuts are now gone. Is there any way to get them back? Thanks for any help.

I am using a Samsung Note GT N7000 and had recently upgraded to Android 4.1.2 Jellybean. On doing so, my battery life has halved from a full day to a half day. First I would like to check with you if this is normal and whether there is a way around this problem. Otherwise, if I need to downgrade to a lower version of Android, could you suggest what version should I go for. As I have never done this before, could you guide me to a site or resource which can help me with the same.
