If you encounter any problems, the best idea is to do a full wipe/reset. Be warned however, as this will wipe all the data off of your device! To perform this you will first need to enter recovery mode by holding down the volume up, home, and power buttons until you reach the recovery mode. Choose to wipe data/factory reset. That should fix any problems your have, you should be good to go after!
