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).

comment LG G2 Not showing up in adb command even if i check USB debugging
Could be, but that requires some more details: where are you looking for it (Windows, Linux, Mac)? What exact steps have you performed? If Windows, have you installed the appropriate drivers?
