comment Can I stop Google Goggles from automatically searching after OCR?
If the part you're concerned about is sending the data to Googles servers, that's most likely already done for the OCR itself. I doubt there are many apps out there which can do complete onboard (offline) OCR. Just try doing the OCR in airplane mode to verify, I might be wrong here.

I somehow expected that :) Are you considering your issue solved? If so, maybe write up an answer?

comment Samsung Galaxy S2 can't write any files to SD nor delete existing folders, why?
Which Android version? Sounds like Kitkat with its "great new security feature".

And does "long-press-and-cut" (as described in my previous comment) work? Plus, as you found a solution: Maybe you post it as answer?

comment What is “Additional Safe RAM” (ASRAM) and how do I enable it?
This site is for users of Android, which means that questions about development/programming are off-topic here (see the What topics can I ask about here?). You might wish to consult Where can I ask questions that aren't Android Enthusiast questions? for a fitting place to your question.

comment What is “Additional Safe RAM” (ASRAM) and how do I enable it?
"Additional safe RAM" sounds rather like a fake. You cannot download new memory, nor expand existing memory chips. As to ASRAM: Asynchronous Static Random Access Memory, also here.

comment Galaxy s3 came prerooted?
I never heard of the term "factory unlocked", but "unlocked" usually only refers to either SIM or the bootloader. It never means anything like "rooted". It's unlikely a new S3 will be sold rooted by Amazon; manufacturers usually don't like that.

comment How do I exclude album art from the gallery?
NobleUplift: I don't know of a way working with the default Gallery app. But there are gallery apps where you can exclude folders. If you're open to an alternative Gallery app as solution, you can check with my list of gallery apps (might be faster than searching Play directly).

comment How do I exclude album art from the gallery?
@geffchang Maybe Poweramp doesn't use the systems media database (which the media scanner feeds). Players who do will no longer find the music files, as .nomedia would keep the media scanner from adding them to the library.

comment force close when add contact
I'd first try to delete cache from the affected apps (Settings→Apps, chose the "All" tab, scroll to the app in question, open the entry, tap "delete cache") and see if that helps. A last-resort would be a factory reset, but that would also delete all your apps and data.

Welcome to the Android Enthusiasts! First try some punctuation and formatting so your question becomes readable. And while on it, some specs (or a link to a page with specs) of the device might prove helpful. Also, details on the apps: maybe they are simply too big for your device?

comment How can I make an APK backup from an installed and configured XBMC?
That rather looks like some "first-run" flag being stored somewhere, but not "captured" by Titanium. You could try an alternative, e.g. backup/restore via ADB (or using Helium Backup, which does this on the device itself). Maybe results are different with that approach.

comment Cannot uninstall Viber as my S3 always shuts down
Is your device fully charged – or does it shutdown due to "low battery", maybe? If that's not the cause: Have you tried uninstalling the app via safe-mode?
