comment How can one receive android updates?
Anand, that doesn't answer the question: "when the manufacturer doesn't provide any" contradicts with checking for OTA updates "by the manufacturer itself" :)

AFAIK there is no protocol of that – unless you've setup something yourself.

comment My Samsung S6 Edge still didn't recieve Marshmallow update
As Benjamin pointed out, we cannot tell how long to wait or when it will ship to you. For other sources, please take a look at Where can I find stock or custom ROMs for my Android device?, When will my device get the Android 6.0 update (Marshmallow)?, and our updates tag-wiki.

comment Misuse of android features
I guess what Bhuwan unknowingly points to is ad modules, which are in many cases responsible for "too many permissions". For a detailed analysis I hope nobody minds if I refer to my article Why do some apps request too many permissions? Of course, our permissions tag-wiki is a good starting point as well.

Pitty, as you permanently rollback edits that make your question understandable, I've now closed it as "unclear".

comment debrick.img for sgh-i257?
Sorry, but this site doesn't "make images on demand", not does it recommend off-site resources. Also, I've never heard of a "debrick image". If you can flash the device, just flash the stock ROM. As we don't know how the device was bricked in the first place, it's also hard to give other recommendations that could help you.

comment Why is my gpu load always zero
Please, check your spelling and add some background on what you want to achieve. As @AndroidDev I see no reason why one should simply want to have load (that's as if you'd complain there's still fuel in your car, and you want it empty).

comment Google play store not working & Google play service stopped error
Flashing which custom ROM? And did you pick the matching GApps package to that? The error you mention mostly happens if one picks the wrong GApps package. Please edit your question and add 1) which ROM you were flashing (best with link), which exact Android version that is, and which version of GApps (with link from where obtained) you were using.

Apart from being off-topic, it is not even clear what you're asking here.

comment “Text” and “test” android overriding same file whing saving to “text.txt”or “Text.txt”
External storage uses FAT which is case insensitive – so yes, text.txt and Text.txt are the same file here.

comment Sharing laptop's internet connection with Android smartphone when Win10 isn't able to create a WiFi hotspot
Well tagged including the reverse-tether tag :) Which (via its tag wiki) leads to Reverse Tethering (USB) through Windows 10 using Android 4.2.2, which was merged into How to use PC's internet on Android phone through USB cable. Could you please check whether the latter solves your issue?

comment Replace your wireless adapter with an Android (not tethering)
@DanHulme Yeah, I was afraid of that (which IMHO isn't possible considering John explicitly stated "not tethering").

comment Replace your wireless adapter with an Android (not tethering)
Are you talking about a WiFi Hotspot (i.e. transforming your Android device into a WiFi router)?
