I want to sell the remains of my broken S7 Edge, but before I want to erase all the data. The phone was dead for over a year and I was hoping the repairs would become cheaper, but I finally realized that it would cost me a lot less money to buy cheap smartphones (because I break them very fast, old times where you could crush your phone several times a week on the ground and it would still work for years again: – /)
The device is already open, the glass, the back cover and the screen are already removed.
I've already discovered findmymobile.samsung.com on which I've set a factory reset, but this will only happen when the phone will be connected to a network.
Problem: it does not connect if I put my unlocked SIM card there …
I do not think I can use the android device manager because it does not show up. Do not remember if I had recorded it there.
- USB debugging is disabled
- The phone is not rooted
- the display is completely removed
- physical pimples are sensitive
I can not really know what state it is in when, but it can be turned on and stay in place long enough.
I've installed adb on my linux, but the device is not listed.
-> How to make it appear?
I'm even considering a physical removal of the hard drive, but I do not know where it is and if that makes the device completely useless.
Fixing the display is not an option.
