comment Clearing System Storage & Ram
@MatthewRead I guess the OP really means RAM – taking the context (task manager). Tried to cover it all with my answer nevertheless :)

comment Malware on LG G3 redirecting all browsers
Indeed, @Firelord – I agree with you in so far. But that doesn't tell us whether it's a different ISP then. Some companies offer "bundles" for landline and mobile, so it might be the same one.

comment Malware on LG G3 redirecting all browsers
@Muteking does that happen on mobile data as well as on WiFi? I've heard of cases where ISPs inject stuff – so as most likely your PC and WiFi using the same provider, that might explain things. If mobile data uses a different one, and it doesn't happen then, it certainly would harden this suspicion. To verify, you could also check using the WiFi of a friend who definitely has a different provider.

comment Samsung Galaxy S3 Internal Storage Issues?
Using a terminal app, you can directly call the relevant binaries (note that on Linux/Unix systems, there is no chkdsk – but it's named fsck, "fs" standing for "file system"). In user-mode you should be able to test integrity; in order to repair anything you probably need root powers. // I agree that sounds like file system errors or bad blocks; but with the external SD card affected as well, it might rather be a defective controler. If you still have warranty, I'd hurry up giving the device to service while you can.

comment How to access the plain text content in /data/misc/keystore/user_0?
Frederick, could you explain how that's relevant to end users of Android? What you describe might be relevant to developers (and security experts to check for security flaws). From the end-users point of view, I see no relevance here – and to them this site is dedicated.

I don't know which ROM you could take. Please follow the link in my answer, that should get you started.

No prob – we all have those "silly moments" :) As it solved your issue, I've made it an answer which you can "accept" (to make this question show up as "solved"). Enjoy!

comment Update APK from command line using ADB?
For me, adb install -r foo.apk always worked. Which ADB version you are using? Maybe there's a more recent one, and maybe yours has some "bug". And you're correct: uninstalling would remove the app data. Work-around: adb backup -noapk -f foobar.ab com.foobar.app (just backup data), then adb uninstall -k com.foobar.app (just removes the app, keeps the data), followed by adb install (with or without -r) might do the trick. If the app data got lost: adb restore foobar.ab should get it back. // Does any of that work for you, so I shall make it an answer?

Just to be sure, a backup can be made before this. Some helpers for that task can be found here: Backup SMS/MMS

comment Where did all these photos and videos come from?
Without having the device on-hand myself, a few wild guesses only: it could be app caches (from advertisements); here some tools for System Cleanup might be helpful. As for the friends' photos: some stuff from social networks like Facebook, or shared stuff via Google+ photos could have brought those.

comment Not Enough Space?
I've just added the insufficient-storage tag to your question. Please check its tag-wiki for first aid. Especially take the different storage areas into consideration for the "why": there are 2 types of "internal storage", the "internal SD card" and the device internal memory (aka "phone storage", /data). It's the latter one causing this error message.
