I've been an Android user since 2009. I've helped to design parts of the Android operating system, and graphics drivers for Android phones. Now I work for an indie studio, helping Android users to get things done and have fun.

Check out our apps on Google Play.

Does fastboot devices actually give no output as you've written? Normally it should list all the devices in fastboot mode.

comment Semi-bricked my phone and I can't flash new rom, what I do?
There's really not enough information here to help you. We can only suggest something if you actually tell us what's wrong: "features are slowly breaking" and "some kind of error" could mean anything.

When did the problem start? Was it as soon as you installed a custom ROM? Have you installed an ad-blocker, firewall, or similar?

The title should express what the question is, to make it easier for other visitors to find. Also, there's no need to "regards" your question as if it were an email.

You should look for a site where programming questions are on-topic, or ask Cordova support directly.

Which app specifically are you talking about? Edit your question and add a link to the app.

Can it still boot into recovery? What about fastboot mode? Simply wiping system shouldn't affect either of those things.

@Alex The notification for USB debugging shows up regardless of whether ADB is running or connected on the host PC, so my first suggestion is to double-check that USB debugging is enabled on the phone. In particular, note that the on/off switch at the top of Developer Options doesn't turn on USB debugging: you need to check the check box labelled "USB debugging".

Could you give us a link to your question on SO? It would be useful to know what SO users are giving people wrong information about this site's scope.

Sounds like a bug in the custom ROM you're using. You should report it to the ROM developers.

comment Security of data sync on recent Android OS/apps
I don't think this site is the place to construct such a list. We deal best with specific questions with a correct answer, but the table you're asking for would never be complete and would go out of date almost as soon as it's published.

Does the phone think it's connected? You get a "USB Debugging connected" notification with a picture of a KitKat if it does.

comment Tracking down which app makes HTTP requests
In that case, edit your question to say what information you want to capture. All you asked for is which app is making requests.
