comment How can one receive android updates?
But that was not the question. The manufacturer doesn't provide an update just because you push a button. And if there is no update provided by the manufacturer, pushing the button won't find any. The question was how to update when the manufacturer does not provide any – and you answered how to do it when the manufacturer does provide an OTA update. No match here. The correct answer in such a case is finding a custom ROM matching the device – which cannot be done by pressing that button.

comment Pdf renderer unable to render helvetica neue font in marshmallow,Android 6.0
@DanHulme agreed. Though I'm pretty sure (which user would speak of "render" when the goal is to "display the PDF properly"?) Anyhow: Unless OP gives clarification, there's nothing we can do.

@DanHulme Obviously writing an app, so off-topic anyway ("Due to security constraints we cannot render it webview" indicates such).

comment How do you skip the PIN to go directly to the camera from the lock screen?
Also include: is your lockscreen protected by a pin/password/pattern – or is it the simple "slide-to-unlock" configuration?

comment Installing app (“SMS Backup Restore”) on old Motorola Droid 2 (Android 2.3.3)
AFAIK there is no newer official Android version available for the Droid 2. You could however check with custom ROMs. My Droid 2 runs Kitkat (4.4.4) with the help of CyanogenMod (that's the latest version available for this device altogether). XDA has the details on how to reach this goal. Was quite a while ago for me, so I don't remember them all (something like root › bootstrap › custom recovery › custom ROM, basically). If you then really want the Google stuff, you can flash the matching GApps (I've decided for microG instead).

No guarantees – but yes, that's what's most likely.

comment Hard brick phone exchange and deleting data
Well, that really seems to be a brick (see: What does it mean to “brick” your phone?) – and obviously leaves you right at the beginning. As I've said, the possibility exists your data could be read. How likely that is is a different question. If the storage is really dead, unless you're the president of something big, efforts to do so wouldn't seem worth it (if I were the repair man).

comment How to pull mmcblk0 to a windows pc?
@user1133275 you might have a point there – but then dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0 of=/sdcard/something.bin shouldn't have worked either. If you checked that yourself and it worked for you, guess we've simply got to believe you and add "this might not always work. If it doesn't, use the other approach" :)
