I got talk&text working on mine (also a Samsung S3) flashing it myself, but haven't gotten the data working.

I've found someone that does remote flashing, and am going to have them do it for me. I will have them do it from a VM I set up, and will log all usb traffic, so I might be able to figure out what was done from that.

Right. Just like nobody will ever figure out what that log message means.

Once you have root, modifying logs is easy.

Accidentally hit enter instead of backslash on an old keyboard. It had an L shaped enter instead of rectangular. That accident meant deleting all of my logical volumes on a big storage array instead of just the one I was trying to. I was very grateful for the automatic backups Linux LVM makes when you delete volumes as I had not yet made my own backup since adding a couple new logical volumes.

No, sunset clauses are easy to deal with; it goes down like this:

Senator Bob: Hey, this law is in sunset phase. Was it a good idea, and do we want to keep it, yea or nay?

Except it ends up not just being a yes/no vote to renew. People end up arguing about what to change, or what to tack on (raises!).
