    Default Galaxy s3 mini downloads crashes

    Hi guys,

    Hope some of you are in the mood for mystery. In short:
    After my phone froze, I just got it back from repairs. NOTHING works anymore. All apps, messages etc. gone. That would all have been alright, if it wasn't for the inability to reinstall apps, re-configure mail, facebook and bank. Running Android 4.1.2 btw

    PROBLEMS
    - can no longer choose to login to a Google account - that option simply doesn't appear in "accounts"

    - Clicking tabs: Google drive, google +, Gmail, Play store, maps, causes rhe program to flash open and close instantly. Many videos showing this particular thing.

    FIXES, TRIED AND FAILED
    .:: Play store and downloads: Tried stopping app and clearing data - cache wasn't an option, since nothing had been used.

    .:: Was able to update "play store", dont remember the exact version, with the newest file found on Android Police. Installed. Didn't help.

    .:: Resetting: Went back to factory settings twice. Also tried a hard reboot.

    .:: Any install/download button I click is non-responsive, by the way.

    .:: Managed to get chrome working (still unable to sign into account via that), and downloaded that update from Android police

    ANY ideas?? Anything you can think of would be very helpful

    Have you tried clearing cache in recovery? Here is how: [Guide] Rebooting into Recovery Mode for the Galaxy S2, S3, and Tab2.

    Devices: Current: Nexus 5, Moto X, Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0); Retired: Galaxy S2 (Epic 4G Touch); Traded: Galaxy S3

    Thank you, Golfdriver

    Didn't help a thing :/ Suspecting it has to do with some Google primary account that cant be reset.

    Clearing cache in safe mode, just did the exact same thing as clearing data/cache in normal mode: absolutely nothing (tried clearing almost anyrhing that had to do with Google, as instructed in various forums and video guides - getting a tad bit desperate )

    Thanks anyway

    In another silly attempt, I just discovered that the file "accounts.db" is missing!!

    Looks as though there's no other options left, than throwing a perfectly ok phone in the bin :/
