comment SIM card not detected after installing new ROM
You're better off talking about issues with the ROM with its creator, or to flash to stock or another ROM when you encounter a broken one.

comment Swapping Android S3 phones
Are they the same submodel and either unlocked or locked to the same carrier? If not, look into unlocking it. We have several questions about transferring contacts, files, etc. so try a search and see what you find.

comment patch the OS without manufacturer source
Any ROM with working hardware support is going to be device-specific. If it's "brandless" then who made it?

comment Can I share a folder between user profiles?
Have you tried? The internal (and external if it exists) "sdcard" should allow this.

comment Is "rm /folder/folder/*.* a valid command for deleting files in the folder? please help?
Since this is not specific to Android you'd be better off asking at the Unix & Linux site ... but man rm is probably the best option. That said I am not sure you are asking the right question. Did you test the command while the device is running? Do you know that it's running on boot? Do you know that the data partition is mounted at that point?

comment I'm still waiting for Lollipop OTA on my 2013 Nexus 7
@HasH_BrowN "Delays in the rollout" is a reason for not getting the update, so this belongs as an answer.

comment Bought a Samsung Galaxy S4 that has a locked sim
How could we possibly know what provider the device is locked to when you have provided no information at all? You should ask the seller.

comment Connecting to a network that blocks non-computer devices with Galaxy S4
As far as I'm aware, this is not illegal; he's not looking for WPA cracking or the like. If there is any sort of agreement between the school and users of its Wi-Fi, it doesn't involve us. This ultimately seems no different from changing a user agent, which we would support here for Android browsers.

comment Why does my google account not work?
He did a factory reset so the hostfile would be wiped anyways.

comment Browser that doesn't reload tabs all the time
That's very odd behavior. On my phone Chrome will appear to refresh the page, but it's just loading what it had cached back into memory (so it works offline).

comment How can I prevent myself from powering down my phone while “Alarmy (Sleep If U Can)” is trying to wake me up?
The power button is hardware. You're not going to find an app to prevent the button from being pressable.
