comment How can i access the internal storage (to retrieve photos) on my samsung galaxy s2 with a cracked screen and and broken usb port?
I can think of a way but it's kinda complicated and not sure it works for you. If you have ever turned on the "ADB over network" in the Developer options (assuming your Android version supports it), you can first find out your phone's IP from your home router's admin webpage, and then connect remotely to your phone through adb. After that, you can "adb pull" the files you want to retrieve from the phone.

comment How does Android obtain battery temperature?
Thanks @LieRyan! I understand that it's impossible for all the components to have a temperature sensor. I just hope there is a way to tell where the heat comes from. Sometimes we makes a long phone call and the phone gets pretty hot, but the battery is not that hot (although the battery temperature is also increasing). I guess in this case, the heat mainly comes from the radio module (because it's using a lot of power).

Thanks a lot, Narayanan! Your answer helped clear my confusion. Do you happen to know whether other components (such as CPU) in the phone have thermistors? Also, do you think the battery temperature can be a sign of showing the temperature of the phone (as a whole)?

comment Enabling wireless tools on Android
I did the translation, but this tutorial was not mine. In the original post (see the ref link above), it is likely that the author made a typo here.

I think that is the directory contains the Android source code. Essentially you need to compile this tool under the system source code directory and copy it into your phone. Based on my own experience, you might need to ensure that the version of that Android source is the same as the version of system in your phone.
