Windows Phone 8.1 Bugs & Stuffs

19 Apr , 2014   Video

Check out the video above, and you’ll know what this post is all about. By mistake i used Movie Maker instead of my usual AVS and that screwed up the quality ๐Ÿ™ Sorry for that. There seems to be a weired bug in existence with the SIM PIN feature of Windows Phone 8.1, it was not there up until Windows Phone 8. More about this feature here. I almost thought that i bricked my Lumia because of Windows Phone 8.1 for the first time. But hey, at least I’ve discovered this bug for the first time AFAIK ๐Ÿ™‚ So if you happen to undergo the same, just calm down and remove your SIM and/or SD Card and see if that works! Might be a firmware problem with the proximity sensor too, you never know!

And its obvious that if you’ve installed apps in the SD Card, and if you remove it, the apps won’t work. But AFAIK there is no screen shots actually showing what really Windows Phone 8.1 shows you in that case, so here it goes the full resolution screen shot.

Look that its showing as ‘unavailable’

Apps are faded out, and are unclickable

Look at the ‘X’ mark near the 99, its NexGen Reader installed in SD

Hey wait, at the time of writing this i noticed some users are having issue with the Nokia Lumia Icon’s power button and has voiced this out in the WPC forum, but they can wake the phone up with the camera key at least. In my case, even camera key didn’t work ๐Ÿ™ Now i’m not sure what the bug is and the reason behind it, because that was an Icon begin reported and also he mentions it might be an issue of dust clogging himself in the forum while mine is a 720 with no dust inside/outside the power button. After all it was fine all these time since i got this phone on April last year. By the way, wish my phone a happy first birthday ๐Ÿ™‚

And also last night, i came across this amazing guy in Reddit, see what he has done with Cortana!

This is what that guy has to say about this on his blog

So why not take it a bit further? What about letting her control my lights โ€“ because, yes, giving an AI access to deadly electricity is a great idea (no, really, it is).

This uses aย Netduino, Bluetooth module, and a normal 240v desk-lamp.
