comment APK file keeps getting deleted after receiving via SHAREit
Hard to answer without taking a direct look. Though to me it sounds like some cleaning app having gone bonkers – it could also be a device with a faulty storage or storage controller (reminds me somehow of photos disappearing just after being made, reported for several Samsung Galaxy Aces). What device do you have? Which Android version is it running? Which cleaning apps (or similar) are in use? Does it affect only *.apk files – only files received via ShareIt – only files on your SD card – …?

What device you're using (sounds like a Samsung)? Which Android version is it running? How are you deleting files (please describe step-by-step)?

comment Recover Location History with Location Reporting
I'm not sure (hence just a comment) – but with history being turned off, the reported locations are probably not stored with your profile, but only used to "improve the service" (whatever Google means by that). If that's true (which I assume), there's no way for you to "recuperate".

comment Unable to download update for Yureka YU
Hard to say without some more details: What Android version (and ROM) have you currently running? What steps did you do to download? Where there any instructions you've been following?

comment NVIDIA SHIELD tablet, how do I return to 4.4 KitKat from Lollipop?
Ah – lacked rep (the other question was protected, so you'd needed 10+ rep to post there). Now that you were able – and your answer over there is much more detailed – you might consider deleting your question here ;) Btw: There are ways to quickly gain some rep (at least when it comes to so little as 10). Creating dupes always makes a bad impression – though in an "afterview" your move can be understood. Good luck further here on ASE, and thanks for your contribution!

Especially if your system language isn't set to English, yes :) But my link still points to the same issue you're having I think?

comment Is it possible to repack an .apk to install it in an incompatible Android version? ('there is a problem parsing the package'/have 4.0.4-requires 4.1)
Confirms my suspicions :)

Note as well that "repacking" would void the package signature (you'd have to sign it with your own key), and thus not be "compatible" with a previously installed .apk (it would refuse update – you'd have to uninstall first) or with a later "official update" that might be available for your Android version (admitted, an unlikely update – but things happen). Again nothing a "novice" could easily handle (not if the data should be kept, at least).

@Falco I can agree to that, yes. But this way you'll always risk having an "only partly working app" – you never can say what will work and what not. You risk force-closes and data loss as well. This is not something I'd recommend the "standard user" or even "novice" – though it might be a valid option for an "experienced user" to play with and, if it works out, offer the "reworked package" along with hints and warnings (what sometimes is done on XDA). Such an "experienced user" wouldn't ask this question, obviously – which is why I didn't include that with my answer :)

comment I think someone has hacked my HTC Droid DNA. How can i check and be sure?
I'm afraid that's not something you can ask a beginner to do. This kind of analysis would require some "expert knowledge": What kind of traffic is "good", what is "bad" – and how to tell one from the other? Most apps access the network for one or another reason. And it requires some knowledge to tell the bad guys apart.
