comment How to root LG Optimus L7 II - P715
Not sure if the two are much different, but you might wish to check How to root LG Optimus L7 II - P713 – there are methods matching the P715 as well.

comment Run Bash Script from Terminal
/system/bin should be in the PATH for that. Have you made your script executable by the user trying to invoke it (e.g. chmod 0755 /system/bin/dp)? I place my "user stuff" in /system/xbin, which is also in the path, and never had any issues with them not being executable (unless I forgot those permissions, of course).

comment Virus on my smartphone
As I've told you in a comment on one of your other posts: there are no viruses for Android, so this cannot be one. It can be some malware (that's a different thing). But still, you should stick with your original post if the topic hasn't changed – posting the same question again (just slightly altered) isn't welcome on any SE site, as it e.g. makes searching harder (if you get a ton of results, each with only bits of answers to put together – instead of getting few but complete posts). Which is why this Q will be closed as duplicate soon.

comment “Show notifications” is greyed out for some apps. What's causing it and how do I change it?
Ah, so you've got a partial solution already – but look for a final one :) Well, I'm not aware on any not requiring a 3rd party app (which you surely would prefer). If there's really no such, feel free to post your answer with an app from my list, if you found a satisfying candidate. Good luck!

comment Virus on my smartphone
Melanie, it's still not a virus (unless you've got a Windows phone meanwhile, in which case your question is off-topic). You've asked this question already twice before (Virus on Android phone / Virus smartphone not going away). Please stop duplicating your issue – you won't get us more motivated but rather make us angry this way. We've already explained the issue (there is no virus) and gave you solutions. So what didn't you understand? Visited that site again? No wonder then.

There are some apps for notification settings, some of them claiming to be capable of that. I've not tested any, so I cannot say for sure.

comment 2-core 2.6GHz vs 4-core 1.3GHz
Welcome to the Android Enthusiasts! Unfortunately, that doesn't relate to Android much more than a seat cover to the functionality of a car – or, in other words: it is off-topic here. This site is specific to end-users' Android questions – not general hardware topics, sorry.

comment Replace phone/dialer app - Lenovo phone
Can you check in Settings › Apps (in the "All" tab) whether you've got the option to "reset defaults" for your built-in dialer? If not, it might well be that exDialer doesn't offer itself as "possible default dialer". In that case, you might wish to take a look at other alternative dialers.

Even if it is not, get Greenify (@GiantTree it meanwhile also works without root, though not with its full potential).

Probably not at all (at least not easily, and not without root). See relevant questions with answers here.

comment Is there a minimal installation of ADB?
Oh, to the writer of this answer: thanks for calling my site "malware ridden" (if you referred to that). I'm using the archives from there myself, by the way :) Same for Github, if you referred to this answer instead, and for the XDA-Devs in case of this answer. Granted that links might have been different when you posted your answer, of course :)
