comment Full ad blocking
Why that? What does that app do better? Just throwing in a name does not really make a "good answer" ;) Maybe you could edit and improve it – e.g. describing what AdFree does and why you'd recommend it? Thanks!

May I suggest taking a look at my list of Ad-Blocker apps? ;)

I strongly suggest reading our rooting tag-wiki and follow some of its links – e.g. What does “to root a phone” mean? / How does rooting work?

comment why wont my nexus 10 hold a charge?
There were issues with newer Android versions wobbling down a charge faster. But five seconds is a bit real fast (and a charger which charges a device in 5 secs is neither out for sale), so that part of your answer doesn't make much sense. Neither is the second part, as that app won't work when the device shuts down immediately.

There are none. Except if all the simcards you've tried are broken (do they work in other devices?) or you always tried in your private atomics bunker (have you been in an area with coverage? What error messages did you get?)

How should that be related? OP only switched SD cards, no Android update involved.

comment How can I get my screen to sleep or stay on properly?
@AndrewT. from the title, I guess it should read "display timeout" – i.e. the display should switch off after 1 min but doesn't in his case.

Thanks for the pointer, dedutt! Could you also provide a link where to find Zwypelock (editing it into your question would be best)?

comment Removing mobogenie
Thanks for the details, Santiago! But could you please edit your post and include why the app re-installs itself when the user explicitly uninstalled it (as the OP reports) – and better yet, how to avoid that?

Please avoid "txtspeak". For some of our non-native-English-speaking users it's already hard enough to follow up at all.
