How to fix S Voice Network Error

S Voice

Update: There is not need for this fix anymore. Download a modified version of the S Voice, which will work without any changes here.

As you may know, the S Voice app has been leaked from the Galaxy S3, but Samsung blocked the app on other devices. Fortunately we’ve already found a fix for this and it’s very easy, but you need to have root access on your device.

Like I said in the previous article, Samsung only wants S Voice to run on the Galaxy S3, because it’s one of their marketing strategies, though they didn’t manage to keep us from using it. The fix is very easy and you have to change your device name to Galaxy S3 and you are done. If you don’t fix it, you will get a network error, without any chance of using S voice.

To do it, you have to download Root Browser Lite here, run the application and give it root access, if it asks you. Then go to System > build.prop and change ro.product.mode, ro.product.name, and ro.product.device to “GT-I9300″. Then reboot your device and S Voice should be running flawlessly. Fortunately Samsung will not try to block us again from using the app, though they probably will.

You can also view the changes made in the following screenshots:

Please let us know if you encounter any issues or if you still get the Network error and we will do our best to help you. We’ve tried this method on multiple devices and it works great.

Here you can see S Voice running on a Samsung Galaxy Note:

      If it doesn’t boot up, try to enter either recovery or download mode and restore a backup or reflash the ROM. If this doesn’t work, then install http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html and enter “adb reboot recovery” in the console. This should get your phone into recovery mode.

    Working pretty good on my epic touch. Played with it for about 20 min. or so. Having some force close issues with cirtain commands… particularly when I tell it that I need gas. Everything else works relatively flawlessly. Lags from time to time. Voice doesn’t always work either but it seems to be related to the lag.
