comment No menu entry for mobile network mode after installing CyanogenMod
What do you mean by "mobile signal"? Are you talking about mobile data (in this case, you should check the "Access Point Names" menu, and probably will have to add an appropriate APN), or does it include the "phone signal" as well?

comment How can I download apps to the SD card with space instead of my phone storage?
A good starting point is our insufficient-memory tag-wiki. Please check the first-aid provided there, then return and let us know whether your issue solved that way – or what you've tried and where you're stuck otherwise.

comment Installing Play Store for SM-N9006
@dotVezz I didn't work with fastboot yet, but I imagine it works with adb sideload or the like? Maybe you could make this a full-fledged answer – either here, or (to make it easier to find) to our central How can I install the Google Apps Package (Play Store, …) on my Android device?

comment how to run binary on non-rooted android phone?
@dotVezz Not necessarily. I didn't try it with a binary recently (so you might be right concerning that), but shell scripts do not need to be executable when passed as argument to sh. aseaudi: That error is strange. Can you do a ls -l /data/local (to see whether the file already exists, but is owned by a different user)?

Any more details would be helpful. Maybe you edit your question and describe step-by-step what you're doing, and what exactly happens?

No, but an internal SDCard.

comment Google Chrome icon disappears from app tray after restarting?
Could it be you've installed Chrome on your SDCard? That's the most common reason for "disappearing icons/widgets", as the launcher gets started while the SDCard is not yet fully mounted (both, launcher and mounting process, get started almost simultaneously, so the latter might not be finished in time).
