comment Does the API expose the ability to use multiple network interfaces simultaneously?
Please keep us updated. I didn't post it as answer as I cannot verify. If you can prove it works, I'll make it an answer.

comment Does the API expose the ability to use multiple network interfaces simultaneously?
I recently asked a dev about what could be done with the CHANGE_NETWORK_STATE permission. His investigation brought the surprise an app can define routes with that, so it could enforce routing data to a specific IP via 3G while WiFi is on – at least theoretically.

comment Is it possible to return back to jelly bean OS after upgraded to cyanogenmod?
@OndrejBozek Ouch, wrong "box". Fixed, so now you can simply click on the box or over your mouse over it to click the info link. Thanks for pointing out!

Little hint: Sometimes the search box on top of this page proves quite helpful: error 919 yields 10 results. One is above linked question, the others are the duplicates...

comment OS X utility to create stock images
Unfortunately I can't; my list of devices and time to experiment is limited. But you might wish to take a look at Where can I find stock or custom ROMs for my Android device? With some luck, your source is listed there. Also, XDA is a good starting point for such things (if you don't get a answer here in time).

comment OS X utility to create stock images
adb backup might be a good starting point. But for a complete backup to restore to its original state, it would be preferable to have a Nandroid backup available. Unfortunately, that requires at least a rooted device (to clone the partitions with dd), even better with a custom recovery (to use the Nandroid utility). Obviously, after rooting it's no longer factory-state – and after installing a custom recovery, the stock recovery is gone...

I've summed up (and detailed) items in a separate answer, to make the facts easier to catch. Good luck, and let us know how it worked out!
