comment How to mount ext4 internal memory - Android 4.4
What device? What happens when you try those mount commands? (And what are you trying to accomplish by apparently reformatting internal partitions?)

comment Notification Access in KitKat
It's not there on mine either, but I don't think I have any apps installed that have permission to access notifications anyway. Maybe the setting doesn't appear if there'd be nothing to configure?

Have you looked at the Storage screen in Settings? What does it say?

comment Boot Android Virtual Device into recovery mode
An AVD may not even have a recovery mode. Recovery isn't a different way of booting the Android OS (like, say, Safe Mode in Windows); it's a whole separate partition with its own (minimal) OS, independent of the regular Android system. On a real device, the bootloader decides which partition to boot from (normal system or recovery), but an AVD has a different way of booting.

comment Force Android to display in grayscale
It could be done in a custom ROM by changing the compositor (SurfaceFlinger) to render everything as grayscale regardless of the colors drawn by apps.

Installing any factory image will wipe your data.

comment Updating to 4.4.3
FWIW, my Nexus 5 is doing fine with KitKat. And 4.4.4 is a security update; you probably ought to install that. SuperSU OTA survival worked fine for both the 4.4.3 and 4.4.4 upgrades on both my Nexus 5 and Nexus 10, so I expect it'll work fine on your Nexus 4 as well.

comment Android L Preview upgrade
It doesn't root the phone, but it does void your warranty — or at least, it displays a message saying that it voids your warranty. (But again, installing the L Preview system image will do that anyway.) And it's possible to re-lock and flash back to a supported factory image later, leaving no trace that it's ever been unlocked.

revised Android L Preview upgrade
Capitalize "L" so it doesn't look like an "I", and clarify that it's the developer preview
