comment Error: “read only file system” on rmdir
You cannot simply delete the /cache dir. That's the mount point for the cache partition, residing on a read-only file system. If in step 6 you get the "read only" error, obviously step 5 failed. And no: you cannot "overwrite" a file or directory with a link.

One of the many Android versions. They all have some "sweet nick-names". I'll update the tag-wiki (link) for you ;)

@MickG That's Kitkat (4.4.2), as I assumed.

I won't ever notice, as I only use above described method. I don't like to be told which lock screen types I have to use, just because I've installed some certificate for a web site ;) Apart from that, I've not yet updated beyond 4.1, so I cannot check.

comment How can android be used as a platform for Robotics?
Welcome to the Android Enthusiasts! This site is for users of Android, which means that questions about development/programming are off-topic here (see the What topics can I ask about here?). You might also wish to consult Where can I ask questions that aren't Android Enthusiast questions? for a fitting place to your question.

Lollipop (5.x)? What is your exact Android version (see Settings › About phone on your device if unsure)? Kitkat is the first version I've heard that trouble for (I'm not 100% sure whether it might have been introduced even earlier).

comment Nexus 5 SDCARD files are not writable from PC USB
My first guess from your screenshots was: could it be you're not using MTP, but UMS (USB mass storage) – as when accessed from the PC, the card seems empty on the device? That wouldn't explain the "write protection", but might be part of the issue.

comment Android battery status monitor through lan or web
Welcome to the Android Enthusiasts, mack! Just in case you wonder: I rephased your question slightly to avoid it from being closed as "off-topic" (Is there an app for X, see our help center for details). Now, good hunting!

comment Which application can be record conference calls in android?
Welcome to the Android Enthusiasts! Please note that recommendations like Is there an app for X are off-topic here (see What topics can I ask about here? for details). For where your question might fit better, you might want to look into Where can I ask questions that aren't Android Enthusiast questions?. With the correct phrasing and details provided, you might try your luck at SR.

comment Used the Windows command to unlock Moto G bootloader on Ubuntu
Ritik, you should edit your post and include much more details: what were the exact steps you took to unlock, what are the exact steps you take to flash, where exactly does that error show. An unlocked bootloader shouldn't cause any issues with flashing (a locked one does). While on it, please also edit the title to reflect your issue, not your deed ;)

comment Install an app using ADB and set originating uri or referrer
Related question on SO: google play referrer and localy installed app referrer (chen: I guess that's yours, right? Note that crossposting is not welcome at SE sites).

comment Install an app using ADB and set originating uri or referrer
chen: as pointed out in my previous comment, --referrer should be used to set the package name of the installer, not an URI – which is why that call failed (an URI does not match any package name). I never tried, but I assume an additional constraint might be the referred package must be installed on the device.
