comment S3 screen broken, developer mode on, how to transfer data
Haha that's the script I wrote to make this whole process easier (I cleaned it up a bit before putting it online, but it's still a mess). Adebar sounds sweet. I'll give it a try!

comment S3 screen broken, developer mode on, how to transfer data
@Izzy I managed to do an adb backup with a broken screen, without root, but with USB debugging enabled. I had to use the TouchControl app (the linux version) and some help from this answer. I used the TouchControl app to see my phone screen on my PC with a combination of "input keyevent" 61 and 66 (TAB and ENTER) and "input swipe" (based on the code of the tool) to be able to unlock the screen and press the OK button. Awesome answer and awesome script, thanks!

comment Cannot see installed user certificate
I am having the same problem. Did you find a solution? On my phone, it just randomly stops showing in the dropdown, and I have to re-install it and it disappears again in a few daus/hours...

comment Harden adb on Android 2.3
This application might help you doing this. I haven't tried it personally but it seems exactly like what you'd want, plus some extra stuff.

comment Do you need to run uninstallers/cleaners on Android to maintain performance levels like on Windows?
@Poldie Also, isn't defragging strictly an NTFS thing? Or does it also apply to FAT32?

comment What's the security implication of having an unlocked boot loader?
@ce4 Might be, it's a Samsung Galaxy Fit btw. And I just checked: CWM 5 has an option to toggle signature verification, but it was turned off by default and had never noticed it before now. And flashing CM nightly while it's on worked as usual... This is weird! but interesting :D

comment What's the security implication of having an unlocked boot loader?
@ce4 Then how come I rooted my device using the stock recovery? Is it exploiting a bug in the recovery or is it legitimately signed? If it is exploiting a bug, then it's as insecure as any other firmware, right? And if it's signed, well, what's the point of signing then?
