comment Sharing Browser Links between PC and Phone
I enjoy this feature. If it wasn't limited to Android 4.0+, it would be perfect.

comment How to install a custom keyboard in Android?
Thanks. The question I linked to has been removed, so I removed the link. I fixed the link to Swype and added one to TouchPal.

Using two-factor auth? Try turning it off (from another device/machine).

+1. Didn't realize this wasn't common to all launchers. (I think it ought to be!)

comment Why does my Samsung Galaxy S2 have duplicate calendar events?
By duplicate events, do you mean duplicate notifications of the same event? If so, this is just a matter of turning off notifications on one of the calendar apps.

For me this seems to occur more frequency after a full charge.

comment Can't buy any paid apps on Google Play store, shows “An error occurred. Please try again.”
I experienced a problem with 2-factor when factory resetting a device (HTC Incredible with Gingerbread). Upon entering Google account info, I would get an error (until I turned off 2-factor auth). So it seems reasonable that 2-factor could cause an issue with the (market) account on a new device.

comment Nexus 7 screen is flickering
Does the flickering occur regardless of what you're doing? I notice something like this but only when using Google Play.

comment Persistent “Google sign-in” error, even with correct password
I saw this issue on the lock-screen. After attempting the pattern too many times I had to enter email/password. However it was my wife's info that unlocked the phone. It was probably due to having her signed in last (either on Gmail or the Market). Also, I assume the username field is filled in for you? It was not in my case.

comment Persistent “Google sign-in” error, even with correct password
Do you have multiple users on your device? I once ran into something similar in which an app was looking for the second user name on my device, rather than the usual one.

comment How can I get rid of the low disk space notification?
Can you move apps to the SD Card? That may be your best bet. There are a few other suggestions in my answer to a similar question.

comment What is the Streaming Decryption setting in Google Drive?
That sounds reasonable. It seems a side effect of that could be a reduction in the amount of data being transferred.

comment Dropbox files won't open, 'Permanent Failure'
Embarrassingly enough, 1GB of hidden files on the SD card was part of the problem. I had seen low space messages recently, so that's why the SD card was on my mind as a possible cause...

I have not tried those. Menu | Settings shows that the cache is 0.

comment How can I switch launchers on the Samsung Galaxy SII Epic
Seems to be a dupe of this question: android.stackexchange.com/q/6042/15. The accepted answer should do the trick for you as well. (And welcome to the site!)
