    Post Galaxy s5 won’t boot up

    While I've been looking for answers about this I've seen teardown videos for the s5 so I can see what the port assembly looks like with it's little PCB behind it.

    Post Galaxy s5 won’t boot up

    Thanks for replying henderia93. My symptoms are very slightly different in that the phone couldn't maintain any of the modes I tried for more than a few seconds before going back to the boot loop again so there was no chance of trying any software fixes including flashing the ROM. Now it...

    Thanks for replying godofsalt. At the time the phone was plugged in to my USB 3 lead which charges faster and all I can think is that perhaps there could be a fault with the lead or the higher ampage of using this lead caused a circuit to burn out. I have around a dozen USB 2 leads and I've...

    Post Galaxy S5 with broken screen

    Thanks for replying Droidriven. The exact model number is SM-G900F. Just to clarify, it is my brothers phone that is broken and he and I both have the same model. The new phone is also the same model which has been ordered but has not arrived yet. It should arrive either this morning or...

    Thread Galaxy S5 with broken screen

    Hi there. Please could someone suggest how I can migrate all the data from a Galaxy S5 with a broken screen over to a new Galaxy S5 which is the identical model. The broken phone is not locked and internally is working normally but after being dropped I think the LCD has gone so badly that I...
