You have successfully performed a Factory Reset on your Samsung Galaxy S3. Note: a Factory Reset is not completely, 100% secure; however, it does make it very difficult for the next owner to get your data and, since you are unable to see your screen, you can't encrypt your phone before your Factory Reset so this is the best option available.
