comment How do I remove the top and bottom bars on Google Play Books when I'm reading?
I just tried sliding up, same result. The bars would just flicker.

comment Hidden Root Browser on MIUI?
I don't think I have ROM toolbox either. Does MIUI include it by default? I can't see ROM toolbox on the apps either.

comment What is the system APK that handles the calls in ICS?
I'm using MIUI that is based on ICS. I tried Greenifying the Phone app but that doesn't seem to be it. I'm not sure if it makes any difference but I'm still doing it just in case. I've got a pretty old phone so the more I save the better.

comment How to take screenshots from a generic ICS 7" tablet?
I tried to do that just now and it just turns off the display. I also tried varying lengths of holding down the on-screen back button. Still no go.

comment How to take screenshots from a generic ICS 7" tablet?
As soon as I pressed power or volume down it would either prompt me to shut down the tablet or lower the volume until it reaches the lowest volume possible. I also tried holding it for an extend amount of time and it just stayed that way.

comment Sharing via bluetooth disappeared?
Umm, I didn't roll back at all. I had a ROM back when I posted this question, supposedly AOSP, then when I couldn't find a proper fix (your answer was roughly 4 months after), I just decided to flash CyanogenMod 9 (same 4.0.4 I presume) and it never occured again. It could just be an isolated problem with my specific ROM back then.

Unfortunately, that's not the case. I ended up just reflashing and it never occurred again (so far).

Can you suggest a way to encrypt micro SD as well then?

comment How can I set up my Google account without syncing Gmail?
I'm pretty sure turning off Sync for GMail on Accounts and Sync does that. If you are willing to go the extra mile, just get your Nexus 7 rooted and "freeze" the GMail app. Using one of the many applications out there that does it.

comment Blue arrow pointer in Google Maps won't update whichever way I'm facing?
@Narayanan, tried both GPS Status & Toolbar and Compass‌​. Both work and both point at the same north direction so I think that nulls the possibility of it being a hardware problem.

I have downloaded 3rd party compass apps and those work. Plus, it worked fine back then on Gingerbread. I've updated my post above.

comment Auto-Answering with my recorded voice response and recording
Voice Mail immediately comes to mind, except for the external SD card saving.

comment Auto-rotate only for youtube videos, disabled otherwise
I don't know what ROM you're using but YouTube actually ignores my auto-rotate setting regardless of it being on or off. YouTube still goes to landscape mode when I tilt my phone whilst watching a video even if I have auto-rotate set to off.

I've also considered the possibility of varying file types already. Before I can send roughly anything; apk, zip, images, txt. Now I can't send anything at all via bluetooth.

Yes I have bluetooth working. I knew my bluetooth is working because I have one of those Sony LiveView watches and it connects no problem if I have the bluetooth on

For older versions of Android, you can still download the Flash Player from the Play Store via this link.

comment How to recover pictures from frozen htc one x?
This may not be helpful for your case at all but I find it necessary to at least install the Google+ app on your phone as soon as you get it and enable Instant Upload so that pictures you've taken are automatically backed up to Google's servers if and when you have internet connection. This would come in handy for such cases as the above. I hope you manage to find a solution to your current dilemma.
