comment Do I need to downgrade my Xperia J to ICS before installing a custom ROM?
The kernel is part of the image, so you won't keep it either: the custom ROM will bring its own.

Maybe adbfs is a solution for you? That's what I use with 12.04. For details, please see may answer here.

Glad my answer proved helpful! You might wish to indicate such to others by "accepting" it (clicking the check-mark next to it). That way it also appears in lists as "answered and solved". Thanks!

comment Can a mouse emulate swiping?
It wouldn't be labeled such because it was not intended for this. Let me explain by an (incorrect) example: couldn't it be the scroll-up event triggers the same "interrupt" as the volume-up key (unlikely, but I wrote it's incorrect)? In that case, wouldn't Moon+ react as if you had pushed the volume-up key? And if so, couldn't you use that for your purpose, substituting "scroll-up" with what's named "volume up" in Moon+?

comment How to read unicode characters for font not installed?
As you've already set the fonts tag: its most frequented questions might give you some useful pointers. A possible solution might be adding the required font. It's not my area of expertise, hence no complete answer from me; but hopefully it should at least get you started.

You might wish to take a look at Can not unlock my Android device as have no internet connection?. Though it's not about PIN lock, some of the solutions listed there might work for you as well.

comment Send SMS instead of MMS when texting multiple people
And what app you use for SMS? You describe the default behaviour of Hangouts (in which case you might want to switch to a different app for SMS).

comment My Medion tablet won't download some apps from Google Play
Maybe you edit your question and add step-by-step what you are doing, so we can see whether there's something wrong? Moreover, it looks like you have a small understanding problem about how Google Play works: you usually do not download to your laptop (that's not even offered), but either send it to your device via the web frontend, or load it directly via the Playstore app. How does it look like for the apps it "will not download"? Doesn't the download start? Or does it say e.g. the app is not compatible with your device?
