Thought as much :) Nevertheless, your answer might help somebody else, though :)

comment Cleaning up Samsung S2 memory
SDCard has nothing to do with the "insufficient memory"/"insufficient storage" error (see the tag-wiki). More likely culprits are tombstones and /data/local. SDMaid is a good pointer, though – as it doesn't only care for the external SDCard. But for pretty much everything else, it needs root…

You might wish to check: Something is secretly eating up my Acer Iconia A500 internal memory and I need help finding it – and, of course, the insufficient-memory tag-wiki :)

comment Why is the play store displaying same app twice under the My apps section
Two things to check: 1) have you installed the app on multiple devices (shouldn't be the reason for that, but is the first thing coming to mind) and 2) have you checked in Settings→Apps on your device if you have two apps of the same name (also unlikely, as the playstore only seems to have that once – but sometimes, the "free" and the "paid" version of an app have the same "display name")?

comment Android Nexus 5 knows password of WiFi he was never connected to!
And you might wish to do this from the beginning. Once the data got out, no way to get it off again. Though there's a "delete" option, that doesn't seem to do a thing (see heise.de/-1922971 – German, but you can run GoogleTrans on it).

comment Modifying a Stock ROM
Apart from the fact that adb pull wouldn't have access to everything without root: how to get that back to the "other device" then? Don't try adb push, won't work without root ("read-only file system"). Storo explicitely wrote flash it into any other SM-T210 device, which means he needs an image, if I'm not getting things wrong here. // However, that's a pretty grey area for this site, very close to "building a custom ROM" (one of our closure-reasons).

Worth a look, as it mentions a lot of methods: Can not unlock my Android device as have no internet connection?

comment Im trying to download apps but it says insufficient storage but I have plenty of storage and an sd card
As you've correctly tagged your question insufficient-memory: have you checked with the corresponding tag-wiki? That will give you some first-aid, and a.o. tell you the error has nothing to do with your SDCard (you could have Terabytes free there, it wouldn't matter). As this also is a somehow frequent question here, there are more answers already existing, see e.g. How can I deal with “Low on Space” messages on my Android?

Question states explicitly: can access it fine over the WLAN from another computer. So if I'm not missing something here, your answer doesn't seem to match?

I think so, yes (cannot check as I don't have such ;). And please add these details to your question so they don't get lost :)

comment Shorcut on desktop that enables packet data and 3G
I don't think there's a general "yes" or "no" to that question. You might wish to include your device and Android version with your question to shed some light, so you get better fitting answers – as that very much depends on that (plus on things like "Custom ROM" or specific UIs like Touchwiz, Sense, etc. being used ;)

The second half is not the big deal. The first half is. To retrieve it, you'd need a custom recovery. So after that, it's most likely not stock anymore...
