Re: Help!!!!!

I see your problem is already solved but in case anyone else encounters this and is not able to scroll in menus you need to use two fingers to scroll if you also enabled explore by touch under Settings ->  Accessibility.

Re: How to turn off TalkBack and accessibility

The solution to this is, use 2 fingers on the screen to scroll, 1 finger scrolling doesnt work, accessibility is intended for blind people I think, so to avoid accidental navigation they made it multitouch. no need to reset the phone, hope  this helps
