Unfortunately this doesn't work on my Nexus 4.

comment How to make screen stay turned off when plugging charger?
@Cerin I'm afraid none of the other answers work for many devices and a custom kernel is indeed required. The answer is accepted, so please talk to the OP about how non-useful it is.

Please add some content to this answer, ideally complete steps, so that it's still useful if the site goes down or the URI changes.

comment How to update Galaxy Nexus from 4.0.2 to 4.2?
I agree with you and Al, but since this has got a bit cluttered and you seem to have encountered a newer / more specific issue, I've close this in favor of the other one. I hope that works for you!

comment Unlock Root reports success but still cannot perform root user actions
We're trying to get rid of the tablet tag -- could you give us the manufacture and model name of the device so we can create a tag for it? Rooting is often very device-specific as well, so it may be helpful.

The other question doesn't need to be specific to phones, either. I think it's a dupe.

comment How to uncompress a password protected zip file?
From the first answer: "I was helping to translate this soft as a volunteer at CrowdIn translation platform, so I know it well enough to describe it to others." Your answer here is definitely more suited to the question, Kim, so it can stay -- just beware of how it looks when a new user shows up and starts hawking a particular piece of software!

comment What can I do to increase battery life on my Android device?
@Ben Hmm. If the battery isn't providing the power when the phone is plugged in, wouldn't you be be able to take out the battery while it's plugged in? Every device I've had suffers immediate power loss in this case.

Sounds like the answer is to not user that kernel, unfortunately.
