So I have a question.

I have just ordered a galaxy note10 plus Snapdrsgon version from Ebay, I'm in the UK.

The listing says the phone is brand new and the seller says that all their phones are brand new.

But I was thinking that people could be selling refurbished phones as new.. putting the phones in new boxes with seals ..

How can we know if we are really getting a brand new phone?

Anyone have any advice on this?

Other than visually inspecting the device? Probably not.

There is a disk digger for Android and it worked really well--- until they started using encryption and so it doesn't very well anymore

Then due to the age of the device that was under discussion, it should be an option.

I haven't really read through the questions cause there's no many posts, but root is needed for Disk Digger

Adb is available for all devices of those I know after to enable USB debugging you could interact with and about fastboot Nokia devices usually can access to this mode through adb command or using a combination key; usually pressing and holding pwr key+volume down at same time that is connected USB cable to pc and device.

About EDL is not accessible for the normal user before bootloader gets unlocked. If you unlocked it you can access in some devices through three ways, using adb command adb reboot edl or using fastboot command fastboot oem edl or via hardware buttons that may vary from one device to another, sometimes might be pressing both volume buttons at same time you connect USB cable to pc. If device is locked then the only way is using test point method, you have to seek the proper for your model, in YouTube there ate many for almost all devices.

Unless I've missed some other post, there's no way to know what phone you're talking about.

Usually an stock OTA zip can be downloaded through recovery, including TWRP. But full images usually require odin or Fastboot or some other manufacturer's installer software.

That's a general statement. If you want specific answers, you must be specific with your details.
