comment Turn off served by Google feature in Chrome
I don't use Chrome – but that looks to me as if it would use the "mobilizer" (having Google convert the page for mobile use). You might wish to check the settings with that in mind (might have keywords attached like "saving bandwidth" and the like). Moreover: taking a look at the URL in the browser bar, you're not browsing SO, but "googleusercontent.com"?

comment How to list all major partitions with their labels?
Only if you feel the need. Could be useful for someone else looking for the same details by "other means". Otherwise I had marked it "NAA" (not-an-answer) ;) I won't downvote it (it might give the requested details, I didn't check – does it show which partition holds what, as described in my question?) – but won't upvote/accept it either ;)

@HasH_BrowN Doesn't really meet the purpose (I'm not interested in mounting here, which is why I didn't apply it initially), but also doesn't really hurt ;)

comment How to list all major partitions with their labels?
Sorry, absolutely no. You must have missed the command-line tag :) Guess I'll better write that explicitly. I know a number of apps showing these details, but I need to access/gather them via adb shell, and without the help of an additional app (cannot always first install that on a device handed to me).

comment Is there a viable alternative to MTP for file transfer?
There are even some file managers offering you some GUI for that. You might wish to take a look at my ADB apps listing for details; find those computer-programs at the end of the page.

comment How do I find out if dnsmasq is running?
I have no idea how the process itself is named. While the application is DNSMasq, the process could e.g. be "dnsd". I'd take the full process list when I'm sure it's running, redirect that to a file (ps > ps.txt), and investigate that for what might be the one. I'm not sure whether the -f and -F parameters are available (full/extra full output) for additional details, but you might try.

comment Why do “android system” and “androd os” take 30% battery
Even 60% could be pretty normal (e.g. for a device with no user apps installed, running in airplane mode, if you don't touch it for 12+ hours, it would even be pretty decent ;) So without more details, this cannot really be answered, Ittai – slicha...

comment No service after installing cyanogenmod
Neither can we, joe – but maybe a few more details can help: what device are you talking about? Which image did you install (and where from)? Was it exactly matching your device? Is it a "nightly build", or rather a stable one?

If you know how the process calls itself, it works the very same way. Everything running a process shows up in ps.

comment Command to list partition mount points?
Well, that lists only partitions currently mounted – in normal mode: /system, /cache, and /data. But not e.g. /recovery, as that's not mounted in normal mode. Once upon a time, cat /proc/mtd got you a full list – but trying that on my devices with Android 4.1 yields an empty list only... cat /proc/partitions indeed lists all of them – but gives no indication of what's what :(
