    What's stupid is

    Ad for 2nd hand phone goes

    " works well, but need replacement screen " Price is firm $300


    i'm sitthing there like what the fuck ? the phone is practically worthless as someone has to put in $500 just to see if it turns on... yet alone if anything else is messed up, how do we know how many times it was under water :/

    I think with this a lot of people think they can get them fixed cheaply at these mall vendors and pop up stalls. the parts they use are non genuine and absolute crap that only last a month or two.

    Definitely sounds like it's time to flash CFW onto it. If you've got the Exynos CPU - LineageOS 19.1 exists with Android 12 :)
