comment Can RAM and ROM be increased after rooting a device?
Rooting doesn't upgrade your hardware – it neither will give you more RAM, nor more storage. OTOH, it gives you more possibilities to manage existing resources.

comment Remove disabled account from android phone
Welcome to the Android Enthusiasts! Can you tell us a few more details on this account, Eiren? Is it a Google Account, or rather just a mail account? Where do you see it (e.g. in Settings › Accounts)? A screenshot might also help.

comment Can't install any apps and can't login to market
Please follow up to our google-play-store tag-wiki, where first aid is provided for many playstore errors. Mentioning the 927 error, there's e.g. a link to Error 927 while updating YouTube which should get you started. After that, please return and let us know if/how you were able to solve your issue. Good luck!

comment Unable to flash latest factory images to a refurb Nexus 5
I never had a Nexus, but lsusb reporting a device as "Nexus 4" seems a strong indicator it's not a Nexus 5. I've seen several devices posing as "Nexus" (for "driver ease" I guess), none of them being a "brand name"; so I'd say this is a strong indicator for a fake. Another one is that you have to use some never-heard-of software for flashing as nothing else works with a Nexus device – pretty unlikely a real Nexus would require that.

comment Internal SD card accessible through PC even after encryption
Very close, varun: it's not MTP doing the decryption, but Android itself (otherwise your apps couldn't read their data either, or even start). As Tamoghna already pointed out, to access your data via MTP requires the device to be unlocked first (i.e. a "unauthorized person" had to bypass your lockscreen in the first place); so changing the default USB mode doesn't matter here anyhow: having unlocked the screen, that person could also change the USB mode again. Just take care to "secure" your lockscreen (PIN/pattern/password).

comment Play store show only insufficient storage only after downloading
And for a starter: as @paulmz has pointed out, this question pops up multiple times a day (at least it feels like), so we've setup some first-aid in our insufficient-memory tag-wiki which should help you. Looking for "prevention", a good reading should be What can I do to manage my phone's internal storage?

Has it a custom recovery installed? If so, have you tried from there?
