comment Change MCC and MNC in the APN settings
MCC (country code) and MNC (network carrier) are bound to that APN (and maybe to your SIM as well), so changing wouldn't help you much as there wouldn't be a match. What you need is the APN definition of the carrier you're currently using in Germany. Beware roaming costs.

Which is why I'm speaking of a completely open source ROM using open source apps only. No chance to control proprietary stuff. Guess that's also the idea behind Replicant.

comment Galaxy Note II slow due to lack of memory?
Additionally, clearing RAM and doing round-house-kicks with a task killer often slows down the device even further – as killed apps do auto-restart, and have to load all their data back to RAM. Result: More I/O, faster battery-drain – and no relief. Task-killers are for getting rid of hanging/havocing processes, not for "cleaning" RAM.

Exactly that's why a factory-reset would solve it, as it resets the package state (see my answer). But thing is, you could also kill a fly using atomics :)

comment Remove password from Galaxy Tab4
In Settings→Security→Device Administrators, check whether some app is listed there. The error message suggests such. If there's e.g. an MS Exchange account configured, things like that are enforced (and your company's IT admin could factory-reset your device if he feels like =:-0).
