comment Please explain this weird response to adb command
Exactly as Dan stated. So yes, perfectly normal: As soon as the process holding PID 19619 ended, /proc/19619 disappeared to reflect the fact. Expected behaviour, working as designed (and as it should).

comment How to use external SD card on Ehndroix?
OP stated he tried to access it from PC, and it did not show up (access my SD card via USB). So that's not related. OP also stated to have successfully added a test-folder using a file explorer, and got no error. So I doubt it has to do with Android permissions. So while your statement per-se is correct, it doesn't seem to be related to the issue here.

comment What lurks behind these Gmail/GTalk permissions?
@RossC Yeah, that's correct. But the 4 above are already around for some time – so I'm not asking about the "latest fancies". Being offered by the Google Apps themselves (see my edit), they are not mentioned in the AOSP manifests; and GApps being proprietary code, there's not much to look into for investigation. // I share your opinion about "alarming" (those bells are one thing behind my question). And though your Chrome example looks "exaggerated", I'm totally buying it...

comment Go to recovery mode on device without volume key
You might try a Google-Search on "Navon Raptor 7" hard-reset. There are even some youtube tuts listed. Most of the results are Hungarian, though. I was hoping for a link to hard-reset.com (they always list along how to enter recovery mode for that), but unfortunately there seems to be none...

comment Go to recovery mode on device without volume key
Welcome to Android Enthusiasts! The question-and-answer format of this site works best if you put each question in a separate question post. Please edit your post down to one question, and create new posts to ask any further questions. You'll get better answers that way. To the first question: No, key-combos differ between devices (see also our recovery-mode tag-wiki).
