comment Can I trust third party apps I'm using?
We can't really help you decide whether to trust an app. No detection system is infallible (or anywhere close), and many "trustworthy" companies have been caught doing sneaky things. On the flip side, millions of people use all kinds of software every day with no ill effects.

Can you link to the app in question? Or is it happening when you download any app? Have you tried clearing the data for the Play Store?

it asks downlad pandora music anytime and anywhere -- that's an app. If you don't want to use the Pandora app from the play store, cancel the popup and continue using the website.

What does Gmail have to do with charging? What model number are you seeing and where? What does Settings -> About Phone say?

My device's netcfg also seems to be more limited and the manual version of step 4 fails: no such action '10.42.0.2' usage: netcfg [<interface> {dhcp|up|down}]

I get sudo: echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward: command not found, I don't think the syntax in step 3 is supported in most shells. Some alternatives: stackoverflow.com/q/82256/507761

comment Android wear on my Android tablet
Emulating Android within Android on a low-end device isn't going to work. You're also not likely to find a Wear ROM for a 8" tablet.

@Antonin I'm sure there are alternative keyboards that won't show this button -- many have it as a configurable option.

Where do you see the option for "Mobile"? A screenshot might be useful.

comment Does Android allow swapping processes to memory?
What do you mean by "swapping of processes"? I'm not sure if you're referring to multithreading (yes), the use of swap space instead of RAM (depends on the kernel), or something else.
