comment How to fix a ZTE Score after multiple adjustments
Looks like you screwed up your SDCard's partition table. If it's a removable SDCard: Have you tried bootin without it being inserted?

Adjusting Itzik a little: Settings → Apps, scroll to Firefox, open its entry. Watch out for a box labeled "Reset defaults". Hit it. No other settings should be affected this way. Greetz – another Itzik :)

comment How to Create Additional Google Play Account Under 1 Google Account?
@geffchang note my conjunctive ("might"). Not all actually do. Check whether they request the vending.CHECK_LICENSE (Google Play license check) permission. If they do, they are likely to fail with the associated account being unavailable (maybe not instantly, but whenever they check next). If they don't, chances are good they keep running (but won't receive updates). I'm even using some of the latter category on my "without Google" devices (so no Google account available at all) for quite a while. Conclusion remains the same in most cases ;)

You have to add that, as soon the "old account" is removed, paid apps associated with it might stop working – as the license check fails.

comment storage problem phone isnt registering space correctly
I've just added the 'insufficient-memory' tag to your question. Please see its tag-wiki to get started. It's important to see where the storage-hog lies: the error only applies to "device storage", and has nothing to do with (internal or external) SD cards.

comment Where to get help for unrooted phone that won't boot after switching from original carrier?
Free has nothing to do with it. It's always the place where you've bought it (T-Mobile) or the manufacturer whom you should contact for service.

comment Cyanogenmod without google apps
@HasH_BrowN that will take a little, as I'm just leaving for vacation. Basically, on my Motorola Milestone the entire NOGAPPS package seems to work fine: BlankStore, NetworkLocation, Maps. My paid apps work, I even could install them via BlankStore.

Ah – OK, but isn't that the "Galaxy SL" then? S2 is 9100. Check: Yepp, here you go: Galaxy SL GT i9003

comment Rooting and upprading Galaxy SII GT-I9003 to ICS or Jelly Bean
Reza, not sure you've picked the right identification: Are you sure it's an "S2" and "GT-I1003*? The 1003 looks a bit weird here. We've got 2 links in our rooting index for the S2: Galaxy S2 GT-I9100P / GT-I9100G, and one for the Galaxy S2 plus. Does any of those match?
