comment Wifi and Data switching on automatically in my HTC Desire 820 device
They all "look official", that's special styling setup on malware-ridden sites. As the reset solved it for you, I will make this an answer with some more details – please "accept" it then (ticking the check-mark next to it) to signal others this is a working solution.

What did the notification look like? I'm afraid you've just installed a Trojan (malware). With some luck (if that malware didn't manage to obtain elevated privileges and install itself as system app), a factory-reset might cure that. Its permanent switching on of network functionality suggests it's "phoning home", very likely transmitting personal data.

comment Run Bash Script from Terminal
Just wondering why. Isn't /sbin in your $PATH? For me it is. Apart from which: I'm not sure if your call to symlink() is correct (not familiar with that one from flashing). For the CLI tool, syntax would be ln -s <file> <link>. Maybe you've just got it the wrong way around? The code in your question puts the target (link) first, and the source (file) last.

comment LG G3 - 4.4.2 - Stop SMS converting to MMS
Thanks for the additional details! Good to see you did your research before posting your question. Hint: in such cases, it's good to point that out in the question as well ("what you've tried and where that failed") – so people know they don't need to recommend the same things again :) // Sorry, as someone who rarely uses even SMS, I unfortunately cannot be of further assistance here. Good luck – hopefully someone else jumps in soon!

comment Repeating “Unfortunately Google App has stopped” error on Nexus 5 makes the phone extremely hard to use. Help :(
So what do you miss in there that I should add? It's already more complete than the hints I gave in the comments which lead to your solving the issue :) That the Now app appears in Google Settings is not related to your issue as far as I see it. Lots of Google stuff appears in their settings app, logically :) – Oh, reading the comments again (reflecting your latest now) it seems I slightly misunderstood you. Please check back in 2 minutes, I'll update my answer :)

That might be, but Now is part of Search AFAIK. Btw: As this solved your issue, consider ticking the check-mark next to the answer to indicate such – which then helps others with this problem identifying working solutions :)

comment How to browse files on my phone?
"not browse the files from the …" 1) bookstore 2) fridge 3) basement? Looks like a part of your question is missing. And without providing the missing part / more details, we won't really be able to help you, sorry.
