    Re: factory reset on an android phone

    Ha! I was about to ask the same question. I looked on my Google DAshboar5d and the only hardware reference I could find was to my current phone.

    factory reset on an android phone

    I'm thinking of giving my old (but still perfectly useable) Android phone to a needy friend. I'm planning to do a factory reset first, but is there anything else I need to think about?

    Yes, weather could be a bit of an issue. Once I actually get to install the whole thing I will be weatherproofing it as much as possible. That said, in fact my mailbox does keep pretty dry.

    Re: WiFi from the mailbox - continued

    It's the Jaycar one I'm trying to build. That's not actually prebuilt - it's a set of instructions and a parts list. The microswitch I am having a problem with is in the foreground of the photo.
