I think that there is another element to this - but I have not determined what it is - There is one magnet in the front of the flip cover lets the device know that the cover is open or shut - but it will not work unless the case back is attached to the phone - and there are some contacts in the back cover of the flip case that connect to the phone - I cannot ...

When the battery went empty, it didn't turn on. My brother tried his friend's S3 Mini battery, and it worked fine, but all the problems remained. So, he bought a new one. Try ...

You said you can now enter Download mode? And I'm assuming you can no longer go into ClockWorkMod If this is true I would suggest putting stock ROM onto your device via Odin. There are many instructions / manuals available so finding the correct one for your phone and model is down to you. Also its your responsibility when following these instructions, if ...

No, the app will be removed along with all other apps and user data. If you root the phone, it's possible to install a tracker as a system app, such that it will only be removed if the thief flashes a new ROM, but any app you install from Google Play or another app marketplace won't be able to do that.

Although it may show around 7Mb for a file but if the file is corrupt then it won't play any part of it or in some cases just plays the start and skips to the next.
