comment Prevent Google Play from reinstalling apps after factory reset
When creating your account, you also can change this setting right in the beginning. If doint that, no backups should be restored.

comment Busybox Error: unknown option — eusage: nc
I'd first check if the copy of busybox you've installed has nc built-in. Just invoking busybox without any parameters should list the built-in commands. Also please check again the error message you've posted; looks like something went wrong when pasting it. If it says "unknown option -e", it's rather not the nc missing – but it doesn't support the -e parameter.

comment problem installing over an app installed from google play
Are you by any chance trying to install an older version over a newer one? // With the exact error message (and number), you might also wish to take a look into the list of errors in our google-play-store tag-wiki.

comment Turn off served by Google feature in Chrome
As the info reveals, it's an "experimental feature" (@AndrewT. so I think that's not the network provider behind it – I rather go with zachk's last comment here). Usually, such features can be turned off somewhere in the setup. Doesn't that info page give any hints on that?

comment How to list all major partitions with their labels?
That was a gold comment! I should have phrased the question completely different. The easiest way is what one thinks of last... But re-phrasing it that way now would render your answers wrong. Guess I better ask that as a new question. Here or at SO, have to think that over. Developers might have better knowledge of that – but OTOH they might come up with Java code and system calls, which doesn't help me at all... Yuck: how to identify names of the partitions (but again, just for those curently mounted...)

comment How to list all major partitions with their labels?
That was the other answer :) Thanks, will check that. Might do as a work-around (when it's possible to install an app and evaluate that stuff manually). Just wondering: if an app can do that, there must be a place where those details are stored...

That's fine, so from that point it matches! So please, do not delete this answer :)

comment How to list all major partitions with their labels?
I'm thankful for your efforts! It's just that the results don't match, sorry. Imagine the following: I need to grab the /recovery partition from a running device. That's not mounted in normal mode. How do I figure which partition to pick? With the above, I had to pick them all, and find out later. Produces far too much data, and takes too long.

comment How to list all major partitions with their labels?
I admire your enthusiasm, but: I've checked the devices I've got here, none of them has those commands available. Guessed from your links, those are tools available for Linux – but the partitions to investigate are on Android devices, as described, and cannot be accessed that directly from a Linux machine. Moreover: mapping a partition to a device doesn't reveal what's on it (system? data? boot?), so kpartx is out. xmount doesn't sound like solving that either.

comment Xperia Z3 DRM Restore
I'm not a Sony user, but that should be as easy as re-flashing the stock ROM. I wouldn't fiddle with partitions separately unless I knew exactly what I'm doing.
