Applications in the KNOX container are pushed using the Samsung KNOX API's. These API's are usually consumed by MDM's for "pushing apps", and I don't believe are generally available. Samsung has a free EMM solution at https://www.samsungknox.com/en/solutions/try-knox#Management-with-KNOX-EMM Which you can use for pushing applications into the KNOX Container. ...

In my experience as a phone technician, that kind of issue is most often the battery. There will usually be a 0-2% drop after a bat pull because of the required power for boot up. Does the battery have any sort of swelling to it? If so then it's undoubtedly the battery.

No, stock Android doesn't record everything you do in a day. There are a few things to bear in mind, though. First, because Android is open-source, the manufacturer, and your carrier if you bought the phone from a carrier, can change the OS however they like. They might have changed it to add a log like you describe, so though Android itself doesn't record ...

If you are on Jelly Bean (MR2) or KitKat, you can use my app: Override DNS for KitKat. For lower versions of Android there are tons of free apps which do the same.

In my experience, and my extensive reading on the subject, it seems to be related to the charger and not the cable, unless the cable is a non-standard USB cable. Samsung does not use a special cable for their micro-USB chargers, only their old devices with the Apple-like connector. The USB standard requires handshaking to negotiate more than 500 ma of ...

To answer some of your questions in your comments: The USB specification allows for a fifth channel, OTG (On-The-Go), to negotiate master/slave relationships. Some manufacturers remove the OTG channel (cheapo USB cables are notorious for this), and, subsequently, charging negotiation is halted if the device is trying to send data through it. Some early ...

It could be the number of pins in the cable. I believe most Samsung compatible charging cable have 11 pins in them.

Most probably the USB cable is not supporting the Samsung device. Not all OEM USB cables support other OEM Android devices. It may work with Nokia USB Cable but not with the Nexus because the design of the pins is not matching. For this you cannot open the USB cable and change the design or something what you can do Is to try another OEM USB cable like ...

Secret Codes are generally defined by the applications installed on the device. 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 ...

The first and foremost thing of a Backup is that it's just a copy of your data which is stored separately away from your device on some storage(pen drive, laptop , Pc etc.) In case you loose the phone, update your software, format the data by mistake or wanted(for updating etc.) then you connect the device to a system, laptop and re-store the data back ...

Nothing you can do. Your phone is gone, and without a backup, you've unfortunately lost all your data.

Is your phone sim-locked? Maybe additional encryption crosses some encryptions that are already there. It would be really helpful if you could introduce us to steps you made to encrypt/decrypt your device because the reason probably lies there. If after decrypting back it works all right it's definitely not SIM card itself faulty.
