comment LG G2 D802(T) Recovery Issue
rooting alone might not be sufficient. Is the bootloader unlocked? I have an LG O4X, and there you only can install a custom recovery after unlocking the bootloader. I'd wonder if that would be different for the G2.

comment Mac OS X fastboot is just waiting (HTC M8 T-Mobile)
Are you sure the device connected is booted into fastboot mode? To me that looks like it's booted "normally".

You might wish to take a look at similar questions on our site, e.g.: Which program allows remote management of Android devices?

comment can't save phone number after reset factory
@FarzanNjr, that's only half the answer I've asked for. Mind to edit your post again to include the other half? Quoting myself: Did you something apart from rooting it? What approach did you take to root it?

comment How can I start GPS track logging from an intent?
I hope you're not fixed to that intent – my suggested solution is a plain Tasker one :) Of course, if you are, you can use that intent to start the task... #D

Which is no reason to post it twice (see the duplicate Bort found). // Pankaj: This post here got migrated from another site. As crossposting is not welcome at SE sites, this is the way topics are "moved" here – not re-posting. Exceptions might be cases where the target site requires a completely different phrasing; but in those cases, the original question should not be migrated. Always chose one path only, please ;)

comment Is it possible to upgrade/replace built-in “contacts” aplication?
I'd say that's as with launchers: push your alternative app to /system/apps, check whether it works, then remove the original. Even when done with the AOSP one you prefer, that rules out "cases #1 & #2" (signature won't matter), and thus should work ;)

comment How to forbid my location only for Viber on my Android phone?
Alternative options come up if your device is rooted. Is it?

comment Does sharing installed apps pose a risk of sharing personal data?
Full ack. Complementing: As without root usually no app has access to another apps data (few exceptions when signed with the same key, which implicates same dev), if your device is not rooted, this exactly is what happens: only the .apk is shared.

And maybe simply power-down the keyboard (unplug, remove batteries if any) to reset it?
