At last I got the solution, you can achieve this by deleting system/bin/charge_only_mode file. Please do that at your own risk and before deleting have backup of that file. I got the desired result that was boot when its connected to wall charger and now its working fine. All the best!

I was losing hope of finding this on my Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet which runs Android 4.4.4, but finally I did. On my device it's under Settings -> Device -> Personalisation -> Status bar icons. Hope this helps you find it on your Samsung device as well.

For the reboot problem. Wipe cache and dalvik-cache. 9/10 times that is the reason for the bootloop. If it still happens, then reflash a stock Rom (wiping everything - clean slate) and then continue with flashing a custom Rom. As far as what phone to recommend. Not only is that opinion based and speculative, but is clearly against forum guidelines on what ...

Regarding the battery drain and restarting. You need to flash a clean factory image from Samsung first. Then flash CyanogenMod again. As for the replacement, I would strongly recommend Nexus 6. However, if you're not wanting to spend that kind of money, get the 5. In sticking with Nexus 5 for the foreseeable future.

The Settings > Battery menu is a cumulative history that gets reset only when you re-charge the battery to 100%. That means all of the usage history is retained through the charge cycle (which includes any partial re-charges). The closed apps' prior battery usage (as a percentage of the total charge used since a full re-charge) should gradually decline as ...

The Settings-->Battery menu doesn't show how much battery is being used at that moment, rather how much has been used (usually since the device was fully charged or turned on). The reason the apps show up is because before they were closed they used some battery.

Yes, you can turn off all notifications. Your phone will work fine, but you will not receive any notifications, which will severely limit functionality of applications that depend on notifications to alert you of events and progress. Furthermore, the amount of battery life saved by doing this will be so close to zero, that I honestly can't recommend it. ...

Nothing wrong with the phone. Getting hot, just not a problem with hardware. I can solve the overheating problem just like that. Disable all the apps that have Google in their name including Google service framework, Play and market feed back and just don't forget the boss Chrome browser. (Even if you don't use them) . Use built in Android browser. You ...

Please check is there any application having more number of services. Setting-> Application -> Running. If there is more number of services it will eat your battery. The main thing is your display will drain your battery. So that the android OS recommend that the following http://www.wikihow.com/Save-Battery-Power-on-an-Android ...

The two most likely causes: The battery could be dead. Lithium-ion batteries (as well as other types of rechargeable batteries) wear down over time. Even sitting on a shelf they eventually decay, but they decay faster the more you use them, and the more they're exposed to extreme heat, cold, and humidity. The socket on the phone has a loose connection. ...

This was a boggle for me as well, but I found it if click on battery, then the display at the top and then display at the bottom once more and finally about half way down you have display battery percentage.

Not sure why but they did factory reset to it. Probably it is that bad when the battery detaches from the other part of the device :) Don't they make these devices crash proof? I just hit it into a glass bottle :D

Sounds like they just replaced the device and gave you a new/refurbished one. Your original device will be fixed (if possible), and then it will be wiped and turned into a refurbished unit. If you didn't back up any of your data, it is gone. Hopefully you did; I'm pretty sure anytime you send in a device for service, they warn you that it could be ...

Buy a power inverter for your car and a 10Watt 2amp charger with dual usb ports and plug your charger as you would at home. That is what works for me. I can use pandora and Google maps or waze at the same time while surfing the Web at times. It makes no difference.
