comment full backup for deployment and reproduction
OK, so I've got no complete solution. Maybe the "flashable ZIP" for the Android stuff might be part of it; for the Debian side, someone else must "jump in" with ideas.

comment full backup for deployment and reproduction
Thanks for clarification! In this case, what I had in mind doesn't completely work out. Unless... Is Debian kit installed on its own partition (so you could transfer it by simply "cloning" that)? Would it start then, or does it need some "specific boot loader"? I thought of Titanium Backup to create a flashable .zip for the Android apps part, and a partition clone for the Debian part. Could that work?

comment xbox360 wireless controller on android
Sorry, Youtube is blocked here. Can you please give a direct answer: is it Windows stuff you try to run on Android, as your question indicates ("xbox360 wireless controller for windows")? Or did you "reverse-engineer" something and try to "compile/port" it to Android? Or is it something completely different?

I've got no idea about that Debian kit, so please allow me one question: Are all required components registered as "apps" with the system, or is there something installed manually in the file system? Depending on that, I might have some ideas.

comment HTC Sensation XE, Mobile data OFF when GPS ON
Related: Losing network connections when using GPS. No answers yet, though – but maybe it gives you some clue. Interesting parallel: It's also a HTC device there (One S), so there might be a "common cause".

comment Will encryption encrypt my “internal sdcard” (personal data)?
As for your confusion on storage names, you might wish to take a look at our fine storage tag-wiki (many of our tag-wikis contain useful background information and even first-aid; unfortunately, the encryption tag is still missing such a wiki). I didn't yet use any device-encryption, but AFAIR you can define what shall be encrypted. Knowing what terms refer to which storage part will certainly help you with that – see the mentioned tag-wiki :)

comment xbox360 wireless controller on android
You're trying to install a Windows app on Android? That's like trying to drive a diesel on petrol, doesn't really fit. Or are you trying to port it? Then this is the wrong place (dev-questions are off-topic here). Or did I get anything wrong? Then please edit your question and include some more details ;)

comment Download youtube videos through cache
Google doesn't seem to like that (most apps which supported that have been banned from GPlay). But you might wish to take a look at my list of Video-Downloaders (also lists some sources other than GPlay, exactly for that reason).

comment Control xvoice+ with Tasker?
Mind to give some more details? What's "xvoice+"? Is it an app? In user-space? Does it offer Tasker support?

comment I can't find the boot/recovery partitions on my Android phone for backup - where are they?
Dylan, one typo: leading slash missing for cat /proc/mtd. Could that be the cause of the empty output? Also, df only lists partitions currently mounted (/recovery is only mounted when booted into, AFAIK).

comment How to sync between PC and android by WiFi File Explorer PRO?
Yeah, sure there are alternatives (my preference for sync still is FolderSync, I'm quite happy with it). But the question was specifically about a "promised feature" of the app in the question (sorry, I don't know it either, as I never used that app).

To be more clear: Did your "new flash" include a wipe of Dalvik, Cache, and Data?

comment Need to reinstall “Calendar Storage”
Restore it from your backu...ooops. Usual hint: Before fiddling with system apps, always make a (Nandroid) backup first. Now you either have to find someone with the exact same device AND Android version to exctract the .apk for you – or a fitting ROM to flash.

comment 'Insufficient storage' when installing Google play services
Yuck, that's strange. Going by your mountpoint (not "directory") listing, there should be no "insufficient storage" reported, so that rather looks like a bug.
