    How wipe data from DEAD Samsung (Galaxy S6) android phone? Please Help.

    I say the S4 is the last of the decent samsung's. blacklisted? change IMEI. IMEI Null/Null? refresh EFS. so easy to fix. The new security on the S5 and newer phones means I can't even write IMEI to them at home. I feel you are only half-understanding some posts. One question: Did you have a...

    How wipe data from DEAD Samsung (Galaxy S6) android phone? Please Help.

    Good point, if he had a strong pattern lock/password/PIN set-up then the point is moot. no data would be recoverable. as long as its the built-in android lock and not a 3rd party one (which would be thwarted by safe mode instantly).

    How wipe data from DEAD Samsung (Galaxy S6) android phone? Please Help.

    you can't wipe the data. the seller most likely can't view the data as it will have to be fixed at a service center. your average ebay seller doesn't have the tools, and they are a pig to work on. if you can ninja remove the back cover you can try another battery without killing any warranty...

    People got scammed in TPU by users with heat; I reported those people to Heat admin for having multiple heat accounts (against heat's ToS) and using them for fraudulent activities; linked to the threads on this forum; yet the accounts were never banned and the people continued trading badly...

    Galaxy S4 Batteries: Severe danger

    Well, the repair centre i work at says all batteries starting with BD. Being the safety conscious person I am, I would get any BD battery replaced.

    Galaxy S4 Batteries: Severe danger

    Do you own a Galaxy S4 or S4 Active? If so, check the serial number. If it has a BD at the beginning, take it to a repair centre or shop. They should replace it for you free of charge. Samsung are moments away from a recall. Customers at my workplace are bringing phones in that have been set...

    Hehehe just wait until you max your Fly; I'm >1100 DPS on Bio Rifle 4; didn't use my best resources for that either. I use healing ball mainly (my stage 3 one heals/damages 5 targets at a time), extremely effective with practice. For long distances, fire it and try to get high before you pop it...

    Windows 7 won't install on Velociraptor

    At the risk of rising to your comment - have you tried any of the various fixes that Google has found? Did you plug it into the JMicron controller or the ICH10R? Have you tried both? What have you tried?

    Windows 7 won't install on Velociraptor

    Connect it to your SATA 2 port instead of your SATA 3 port and try again, report back please :) Oh, and make sure device is set to IDE in BIOS. Probably will already be on IDE as you haven't come from an SSD I presume, but still check.

    Hey all just picked up these; can anyone recommend any good games (that aren't WarThunder :p) or should I just sell it? Got them dirt cheap btw, might be worth making a profit?

    I could do with coming over to the US server sometimes, I'm already used to ability lag with healing balls etc and on EU server it's sometime, laggy, sometime not. But on US servers, it's much more predictable; always the same lag pretty much. Yea on EU West, haven't seen an EU East so far...

    HDMI out looks "worse" than VGA?

    Since OP is using a TV (or so system specs say), it's almost definitely an EDID issue. Nothing else to it. EDIT: just noticed that it's an Auria HDTV; not the JVC in SysSpecs :o Yup, EDID is causing that issue (well, drivers are causing the issue, but because of EDID). The application you...

    Do Screen Protectors help prevent screens from cracking?

    I recommend screen protector and/or rubber cover - you'll still have a brand new looking 'phone after a year. Why would you spend all that money on a replacement screen and not spend a few bucks to protect it properly this time round? ;)

Especially Planetside2 with like 5 push-to-talk buttons + TS button, deploy, third-person (for emergency landing), nades, vehicle management, and of course, the...

    Components missing from board - likely to work?

    Thanks peeps, I'll definitely be giving it a go this weekend. They definitely broke off; the only reason I actually noticed them is because one of the caps was stuck to the legs of the U8002 chip; and it stuck out like a sore thumb there. Wish I could get it into work so they could re-solder it...
