comment Where are Messages and other data like Application caches or even Applications saved?
Whether on the device or from the PC, that's only possible if the device is rooted – as Ash-Ishh already pointed out. Though you can access the partitions also without, you can't access the directories you're interested in (e.g. /data/data).

comment How to remove “Scrapbook Photos” from stock Gallery?
That's not really an answer, festerfree, as it doesn't describe how to solve the issue. "There is some way" and "I've seen some Youtube video", without giving the exact steps, is a comment at best. Unfortunately, you cannot "comment any post" yet.

And how to bind that to the mouse? AFAIK there's no way to tell Tasker the mouse input directly, but I might have missed that.

comment How do I back up Google Authenticator?
"this is a generally easier method than the one stated above": above and below have no special meaning here, as they very much depend on sort order – so better name the answer you refer to explicitly. Apart from that, though your approach should work, I find it the most complicated of all answers here – so again, "easier" seems to be pretty subjective :)
