Have you seen our similar questions: SD card unexpectedly removed / SD Card Unexpectedly removed error / SD card problem, card gets suddenly removed and later added? Did their answers help you? If not, please edit your question and state what you've tried and where you're stuck. Thanks!

And if you don't want to install the entire SDK (not really needed if you don't plan to develop for Android), see: Is there a minimal installation of ADB?

comment How does Over-the-air updates (OTA) work
Cases A to C are valid options. In the remaining case, the devices simply would not receive OTA updates: though the name is "over the AIR", it still requires a network. Updates are not a kind of flu (though it sometimes looks like :)

comment how to fix grey wifi icon (no internet), and how to track what caused that?
Switching to "Moscow time zone" might help when in Moscow (but is unlikely to help in Wladiwostok, Sydney, or New York). Though, you might have hit some clue here: if your time settings are too far off, that might cause trouble with SSL handshake (and thus keep Google Services from connecting to their servers correctly). So adjusting the time manually could indeed help.

comment Cyanogenmod: Encryption unsuccessful
@Downvoters: This perfectly makes sense to me, so I re-phrased it to make it easier to grasp: it could well be that CM did not know the "old" encryption key, and thus was unable to access the (existing) file system. Formatting the partition created a "virgin" file system without encryption, and thus made it accessible again (to my understanding).

comment Bootloop issue with LG G2
You need 9 more rep to join chat (where you have good chances to find him – no guarantees, though, but others are there as well). You could check some of those tag-wikis if you might improve them: 5 approved edits would give you 10 points, so you could enter chat. // Again: let's move above details into the question, and clean up (remove) the obsolete comments then :)

comment How do I logout of Hangout on Android 4.4?
Welcome to Android Enthusiasts! Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. Otherwise, your answer becomes useless in case the link dies.
