comment Tablet shuts down due to low battery when battery meter is above 10%
I don't doubt that the battery's capacity is diminished, but I'd expect that to just make it go from 100% to 0% more quickly overall — not to drop from (around) 15% to 0% in an instant.

comment Launch app with UI in background
Apps can run services in the background, but activities are for UI; it doesn't really make sense to run an activity without displaying it. If the app has useful stuff that it can do when it's not in the foreground, it should do it in a service.

comment Help me please someone
There's not enough detail here to tell what's actually wrong with your phone. But if you get a popup that says you have a virus from visiting adult sites, that's likely to be a scam, or something trying to trick you into buying antivirus software.

comment Install/Run Android Skype on ARM LInux?
It's more than just needing Dalvik. Much of the Android API (such as the whole UI layer) is specific to Android and not available on other platforms.

comment How long can I reasonably expect security updates to be supported?
Note that most devices probably didn't need updates for Heartbleed. Reportedly, only Android 4.1.1 was vulnerable.

comment Stagefright security issue: what can a regular user do to mitigate the issue without a patch?
The "group messaging" checkbox looks like it controls sending MMS, not receiving. That shouldn't be a risk. But turning off "auto-retrieve" seems like it'd prevent the phone from being able to display the contents of a malicious MMS. What additional protection does the APN change provide?

comment Can an Android device's security be circumvented when its screen is being changed?
This is no different from letting someone use a phone whose screen isn't broken.

revised How can I transfer photos to my Android Jelly Bean device while preserving the original timestamp?
Android "touch" *does* work on directories; I just had wrong directory timestamps in the backup I was restoring.
