comment I can't install any apps when I don't have a SD Card in my phone!
Try checking with get-install-location if it took the new setting. If it didn't, try again with root powers.

comment Android vulnerability Delete App
Welcome to the Android Enthusiasts! This site is for users of Android, which means that questions about development/programming are off-topic here (see the What topics can I ask about here?: this includes Issues with the Google Play Store (or any other app marketplace) from the point of view of a developer or publisher). You might wish to consult Where can I ask questions that aren't Android Enthusiast questions? for a fitting place to your question.

comment how can i restore loosing system applications
First lesson learned, meli: don't use root to touch system stuff unless you exactly know what you're doing. Second lesson along: before removing an app, always freeze (disable) it to see if everything still works. And lesson 3: if you finally remove something, make sure you 1) have a backup of that, 2) have a complete system backup (Nandroid) is to be recommended, 3) remember what you did. Then, the answer is: restore from your backup. As we can't be sure what else you possibly broke, safest thing is flashing the ROM again.

comment How can I find the messaging sounds that are used in Google's Messenger (sms) app?
1) which device/ROM? It's a known fact that different devices/ROMs often use different defaults. 2) you did not make clear what exactly you're after. Thus mentioning "source code" could be seen as indicator for a development question. Note that the question was not closed as off-topic, but as unclear what you're asking. All the time you could (and still can) edit your post and clarify. If you do so now, it can be re-opened. So what you are looking for: the sound file for the messenger as shipped with AOSP Lollipop, where to find it on the device? Then what for the source code?

comment Cannot seem to lock GPS, what else can I try?
@Zlatty I can't tell why, and you can't force it to fix if it doesn't see a single satellite. With all what you have tried (and I assume it worked before with the same ROM – otherwise trying a different ROM might be worth), it might well be a hardware issue.

comment How can I find the messaging sounds that are used in Google's Messenger (sms) app?
@JayWick 1) very low quality of the post. 2) migrate where to? I don't know a site that would like to have it. 3) again, if it's not quite clear what is asked for, one cannot say where it would fit even if there were another SE site it might fit.

You missed a dash: adb shell pm set-install-location 0 it is. See these posts :)

comment Cannot seem to lock GPS, what else can I try?
well, SAT 0/20 says it doesn't even see a single satellite, so it has nothing to fix on. Maybe the GPS unit (or its antenna) gave up.

comment Xperia Z3 boot loop after TWRP installation
I'd say the person who wrote that howto messed up: recovery mustn't be flashed to the boot partition, but to the recovery partition. With your device no longer booting up (I doubt it would even boot to recovery), and not even fastboot working, you will have a hard time getting that fixed – I'm not aware of any solution here (unless there's a bootable SD card for that device which could be used to fix it up).

Glad I was able to help! And be careful as well with what you restore from your backup :)

I just tried to cover the whole thing, @dh47 – see the notification part, which might be what you've experienced.

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.

comment Wifi and Data switching on automatically in my HTC Desire 820 device
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!
