Well, I am not going to take credit of this answer, I just googled out the answer of this question. Head over to the /system/media/audio/ui it will have LowBattery.ogg file rename it to something different like LowBattery.ogg.bak or something else. It will not bother you. PS: You need to be a rooted user to do that and yes removing the LowBattery.ogg try ...

I see Sparhawk wants to disable the warning sound alone and not the popup. I stumbled on an xposed module which will disable both. I just keep this posted just in case if Sparhawk wants to slightly compromise on the requirement and also probably will help others who read this post. Text from the post: Disable the Low Battery Alert with Xposed POSTED ...

I tried the exact same procedure, with Odin 1.84 BUT on W7 x86 instead of W7 x64 and it went just fine. At the first attempt, I successfully flashed my device with a stock rom. Your answers are all right, and black magic or not, for my particular issue I think the answer is use Odin1.84 with a 32 bit system.

There are various apps on the play store where you can check your current charge current and your "maximum" (not sure how accurate the calculation is) Via USB the maximum is 460mA with a average of 460mA Via AC the maximum is 1000mA with also a average of 1000mA

I've had this issue too from time to time, at one stage I had to turn my phone off to get a decent charge, I found that using a USB cable can slow down the charging time but as you mentioned your using a AC Power Source. How I resolved mine was buying a new battery, my battery was dated for 2012 and simply needed to go. New battery resolved my problem, and ...

If you have access to the Download mode, then nothing is lost. I suggest you not to repartition the device first, just try to get a standard ROM flashing done. Based on my experience Odin usually fails because of driver issues (I had plenty of problems using Win 8.1 x64, while just doing the exact same procedure on Win7 worked well) Also if you had USB ...

Well, I would say there may not be any reason to backup your contacts because I guess its backing up automatically over your gmail account. So for verifying it why don't you try logging yourself up over the Gmail account over PC/Laptop once logged in tap over the Gmail icon and click over the contacts. I am sure all your contacts are available over there !

change the background colour to sepia which will appear less bright or even wear sunglasses!

Well, I don't think you are going to get such notification if you are still unrooted user, I would say try checking again wether you are a rooted user or not ?? Try heading over the Google Play Store and try searching for "Root Checker" download and install it will let you know wether you are a rooted user or not ! I believe that you may have accidentally ...

Check the microphone of the device. On the S3 I believe it is the little hole on the right side of the charging port. I have seen this issue numerous times and on occasion, it's a clogged or semi clogged mic port. If the issue is intermittent, the aforementioned possibility is less likely. Other times it is network related, app related or, worst case, a ...

1) Take the S3's battery out for 30 minutes. 2) Then, reinsert the battery and use Samsung Odin to wipe the S3 and install a new Android firmware by doing: a. If you haven't installed the USB drivers for your S3, then install Samsung Mobile Phones USB Drivers 1.5.33.exe. Otherwise, skip this step. For Windows OS, you can download the Samsung USB drivers ...

Check that flight mode is not swithed on. This mode will disable any network (Wi-Fi, cellular network, etc). Else, go to Menu | Settings | More Settings | Mobile Networks | Network Operators (Note: your menu options might be different due to the Android version installed on your S3) and reconnect to your telecommunication provider's cellular network. Note: ...

It could be any or all of the following: Speaker's volume is too low if you have a protective case around your S3. Otterbox cases, and a few others, have been known to cause problem with the S3's speaker. To be fair though, speakers on Samsung devices are notoriously bad when it comes to receving and transmitting sound. Some Android firmware installed on ...

Hard to tell for sure without "direct access", but here are the most likely answers: there are no files in that directory, so nothing to remove you cannot use rm to remove directories (that's what rmdir is for) that will most likely fail as well, since /system is usually mounted read-only ;) the original command succeeded at last: most likely some file ...

The solution to my problem was simply revoking all authorisations granted to computers already. After rebooting both my Galaxy S3 and my laptop, the pop-up appeared again and I could continue the installation of CyanogenMod, which has now succesfully completed.

I had the same problem. Solved it by installing ShareKM (app that allows you to control your android phone with a pc's keyboard and mouse). After you run the ShareKM app it will probably tell you it is outdated and you won't be able to run it. A workaround (found in this xda thread) is to first kill the app, clear its cache and set the date on your phone to ...

Some versions of CyanogenMod have the “Volume rocker” option in Settings → Display; if this option is selected, volume buttons will wake up the phone. There are also other ways to get this behavior (e.g., the GravityBox module for Xposed has the “Volume rocker wake” option in the “Navigation keys actions” screen).

You shouldn't trust such a list of secret codes, as Izzy mentionned. If you want to have a valid list of secret codes available on your device , you should use an automated secret codes crawler. I recently developped an Open Source app that crawls AndroidManifest.xml files on your device to found secret codes, and allows you to execute the secret codes ...

Samsung phones usually take a while to switch on data. Wait for few seconds. Also try a reboot, that resolves the issue most times.

SCH-I535 is not a GSM phone so will not work with any 2G or 3G T-Mobile tower. Also that phone only supports LTE frequencies of 700 MHz & 1900 MHz, neither of which are bands that T-Mobile use to any significant degree. Instead T-Mobile uses 1700 & 2100 MHz. T-Mobile is however in the process of rolling out 700 MHz & 1900 MHz, so you might get ...

Burn the hardware. If it's dug itself in deeply enough to survive a factory reset and installing a new OS from scratch, then there's no way you can trust this hardware again.
