comment Charging issues for Samsung Galaxy S2
Welcome to Android Enthusiasts, Caitlyn! Please check: our battery-life tag-wiki for general hints, especially follow up to How can I monitor the device battery consumption? / How can I tell what is really draining my battery? / How can I prevent the battery in my Nexus S from draining overnight? (that last one sounds familiar, right? ;)

comment Embedded YouTube videos have sound but no video
I had the very same issue with my RSS reader on the Optimus 4X (running a stock Android 4.0.4). Always thought it was the app, as it worked with different other RSS apps – until I found out it worked with the very same app on my secondary device (Moto Milestone 2 running CM10 / Android 4.1). So I second Dan's assumption: a bug in the ROM / Android version is a pretty likely cause.

comment get gps coordinates offline
Sure: Enable GPS. Might take a little to get a fix, but should work without any network support at all.

comment notifcation bar comes up and interrupts what im doing
Welcome to the Android Enthusiasts! We will need much more information to give good recommendations here. Please edit your question and include at least: The device you're using, Android version it is running, what you're doing when this happens (anything that might be connected to the issue?). Also check and update the tags you've used to match your issue.

comment Is it possible to use Linux/unix's dd to make an image backup of an android phone with the phone off?
BTW: The answer you've linked to matches your situation pretty well. I've just linked to the wrong post of mine – the one I had in mind was this one made by Joshua. Especially, check this link from the comments for a full guide. If that's an acceptable solution to you, I can post a summary as answer.

Yuck. Missed that. Just checked the ID in the link, which didn't match – as you linked to the answer directly... My bad, apologies. Shall we leave the comment in, or shall we "cleanup all these comments"?
