The code for shouldSwitchNetwork() best explains what it does. It just artificially reduces the WiFi RSSI (received signal strength indication) to encourage the WiFi state machine to decide to switch the connection. Around line 3559 of WifiStateMachine.java: int rssi = mWifiInfo.getRssi() - 6 * mAggressiveHandover + (homeNetworkBoost ? ...

Was able to connect after keying in the security password. Don't know if this helps. I monkeyed around with this for about an hour. before I got it to work.

I don't think that your phone has been hacked. If the actions your phone is doing are random, you might be experiencing issues with the touchscreen or with its firmware. Consider factory resetting your phone and look if the problem does still exist.

Stock homescreen doesn't support locking/pin the apps permanently. You could try Launchers for this purpose. Solo launcher, Nova launcher, etc are some of those. Locking desktop is possible in these launchers. AppLock from domobile does your second job.

This may be a bug with BLE, and in that case upgrading to 4.4.4 will probably solve the issue.

Is there an upgrade waiting to be installed even? I have 2 ideas: A: Use bluetooth tethering to your phone to get network access B: You could install some basic commandline tools (eg. ssh server / socat / brctl / etc) from http://dan.drown.org/android/ and try to get a working connection via Android-Debug-Bridge's integrated portforwarding feature (maybe ...

tasker should be capable of that. It can execute HTTP_GET commands, and it can also deal with data connections; but for the latter, depending on the Android version you're running on your device, you might need root access to toggle data connection. Tasker uses (combinations of) "conditions" (also called "context") to trigger "tasks" – which both together ...

It seems pretty absurd to me, but while Security didn't see the certificate, Docs to go actually installed it. However, this forced me to have a pin on the lock screen, or a password, which are both very uncomfortable for me, so this opens a new question.

Try harder to find firmware images for your phone. A factory reset might not work, as it only wipes data and cache partition. The etc folder is in /system/etc, /etc usually just is a link to /system/etc. Therefore you would need an image of the system partiton. Well, if you can't find such firmware, it might not be a device thats common used, and therefore - ...

Stop using WhatsApp is the best solution you get.

A free suggestion would be - use separate Instant Messaging services (IMs) for each one because we've got so many of them like Telegram, ...

Attempt to do a Factory Reset through Settings. I deleted a system file once and it ended up fixing it although my new experience with Android says it might not work. I couldn't find anything online relating to your phone besides reviews, tests, and things along those lines. You are sort of in a pickle here. I'll try to search more for ya.

It may be due to other (open) WiFi signals "disturbing your device". With multiple APs being available (in range), your device might try switching to the strongest signal. Of course this would require your device had been connected to them before (Android doesn't automatically connect to "unknown" networks – but it does automatically connect to networks ...
