comment Unable to restore whats app message
Is WhatsApp supposed to have a restore option pop up when you do this? If so, I suggest contacting the developer for support.

comment How to block some SMS, but only allow phone calls?
You can't prevent your phone from receiving texts except at the network level. But you should be able to have them auto-deleted/ignored pretty easily at the user software level. What have you tried? "SMS Filter" is one of the top results for me and looks promising.

We don't support cracking even if you have a legitimate reason, sorry.

comment Huawei Y210 memory card
16 kB is incredibly small. Do you mean 16 GB? I think the marked duplicate should answer this question in that case.

comment Can I perform the following tasks with a Nexus 7?
This site is for specific question; laundry-list is not a good format either. Only your first question really appears related to the Nexus.

comment History of installed/uninstalled apps
@jabadejat Grep is available for Windows, but not packaged by default. It should also be part of Busybox for Android, so that you could do the grep-ing on your device rather than your PC.

comment Game won't update: difference between Play Store and manual Install ? (Plants vs Zombies 2)
How do you know there's an update? I accidentally bought Angry Birds on both the Play Store and the Amazon App Store, and the former will happily overwrite the version from the latter when there is an update.

Titanium Backup also has a feature to attach or detach apps from the Play Store.

comment Drivers eSTAR Zoom
The official site does not have drivers. What OS do you need them for? Is the connection to your PC not working? Have you tried installing the generic Android USB drivers from the Android SDK?

comment Moto 360 Allow Wear Debugging
I'm not super familiar with this, but I was under the impression that if you've enabled the developer options and your device and PC have exchanged keys per your initial authorization, it won't prompt and will simply work.

comment Can you install a generic ROM on any device?
@Plutoniumsmuggler "Similar" isn't good enough most of the time. Phone hardware is much less standardized than, say, PC hardware. Specific drivers are thus that much more important.

comment Is the class rating of my MicroSD card relevant?
@Diskdrive I think the logic remains the same -- compare the bitrate of your video to the speed of your storage. Apps are not normally going to require anything near these write speeds.

comment Safe way to backup whatsapp messages?
Any sort of backup file will need metadata and/or a strict format to be useful, it can't just be the straight text of every message -- you want to know who sent it, when, etc. Most corruptions will result in an unusable file; your only option would be to repair it. There's no special way to avoid this.

comment How to turn on Haptic feedback on Galaxy Tab 4?
"The Google keyboard supports haptic feedback on this device" sounds like an answer to me. He doesn't need to prove that the Samsung keyboard or Swiftkey don't support it, or anything else.

I've cleaned up the comments a little. Please make sure to head to the chatroom for extended back-and-forth.

comment How to connect to multiple hosts through SSH, with the “same ip”, with “Better Terminal Emulator Pro”?
I saw your flag requesting migration -- it seems to me that this site is the best place to ask, or at least it's certainly on-topic here, and shouldn't be closed. However, if you feel it would be on-topic for SU as well then you can feel free to ask there as well. Making a note of the reason for the cross-post should prevent any negative reception.
