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?

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.

Spoofing the MAC might be the eventual goal, but it's not what the question is about.

comment Updating from version 4.4 to version 5 let me to a dead phone
The "no command" screen isn't an error, that's just the normal appearance of the recovery system (which you told the phone to boot by holding the volume and power buttons). The fact that you can boot recovery means your phone isn't completely dead; it's just the regular Android OS that's (apparently) having trouble.

comment Previously Rooted Nexus 5 is not recognized via USB after stock 5.0 OTA update
"No command" in recovery mode isn't an error; that's just what the stock recovery looks like when you boot it directly (rather than as part of an update).
