comment adb sideload does not transfer data
That does nothing but restarting the ADB daemon to listen on the USB port – which it does by default. So what trick is it supposed to do?

comment How can I fix a bootloop on my Nexus 5 running Cyanogenmod 11?
It could also be the data of some app which is in the way, if it's a "core app" needed to run the system, so a factory-reset might be required. Of course, you could also boot into recovery and try deleting the app directories below /data/data one by one (i.e. delete one, reboot to see if the problem is gone, if not repeat with the next) to avoid a complete reset – which can be compared to the "delete data" button in "manage applications". The corresponding apps would re-create their directories then.

As you've used the boot-loop tag: Have you checked with its tag-wiki? Do the pointers help you with your case? If that didn't solve the issue: What have you tried, and where are you stuck? If you've solved the issue: Be welcome to answer your own question to share your solution and experience. Thanks!

comment My phone is 'samsumg s2 plus' i wana root my phone
@bmdixon Thought so. Also had to look twice. Luckily, our index has two questions linked on different S2 models, so I wanted to check which one it is – only then I noticed. Had there been only one link, I'd fallen for the same :) Nevertheless, we no longer dupe-VTC against the list. If it has a matching entry, dupe-VTC against that instead – otherwise, link it from there (which I will do now, as this one at least has a pointer – hopefully Ross will make his suggestion an answer soon).

@RossC / Yazz: Mind to create an answer with at least an abstract, so we can link this question from our index for future users?

comment I get error 495 when trying to download OneDrive to my samsung galaxy s4
Where does this error appear? Where do you try to download from? What are you using to download it? To give good answers, we need some more details here – or all we could do would be guesswork. But a good guess is probably you're getting error 495 in Playstore, so you most likely can find your answer here: What is error code 495 on Google Play and the YouTube app?

comment How do I repair my Motorola Defy rebooting instantly after start-up?
That's a general rule when switching between different ROMs: Always make a wipe of at least cache and Dalvik. Sometimes, wiping /data is needed as well. Take the 3 together, and you have a factory-reset ;)

comment Simple way to toggle between 2G and 3G connection
Done! Thanks for the update: Now it fits 100%, as the Tasker part can do that automatically. You might wish to add that a Tasker task also can be used as shortcut on the homescreen for manual toggle, when needed.
