comment I cannot Write or move any apps to my SD card
You have just rooted, or rooted and enabled write access afterwards? Rooting alone doesn't do that. If you missed the latter part: this list has a few apps doing it for you.

comment Whatsapp folder in /data/ parition gone
The WA folder with your chats, pictures, etc. is not stored in /data, but on the (internal) SD card. Have you checked that?

comment Software to monitor file owner
Afraid this would be hard: sdcard uses a file system which doesn't support ownership. What you could try, however, is utilizing adb shell and run the lsof command, e.g. adb shell "lsof | grep file.ext" (if that file is named file.ext). This would show which process/app is accessing it. Then grep for that owner in adb shell "ls -l /data/data | grep xxx" (replace xxx by the owner retrieved via lsof). In both cases, run the command as root.

comment How can I reboot my wi-fi router using Android terminal?
That's not an Android related question, sorry – you need to ask this at a place dealing with your router ("how to remotely reboot"). Commands for that will be the same as on Linux then.

comment Many notifications show up when connected to WiFi
With "background-data restrictions" already ruled out, I'd start checking in the settings of the resp. apps. They might have something like "do X only when on WiFi" (I don't know the 3 apps you mentioned, but some of the ones I use do have such settings).

comment How to secure personal data on a factory reset tablet with broken microUSB port?
Unless you expect the real experts being after you, the second run really shouldn't matter – but as you wrote, doesn't hurt either. Now the effort needed to restore data for sure exceeds the value of what bits might be recoverable (if there are any left at all :)

comment How to find and remove malware from some chinese smartphones?
As I wrote in my comment on the question itself: even if you were able to remove things (and yes, with root powers you are) – what makes you sure to have caught them all? An AntiVirus (oxymoron: what is it agains, if there is no virus?) gives you false assurance here, it cannot fully protect you.

comment How to find and remove malware from some chinese smartphones?
You might be able to detect such malware. But as it comes pre-installed with system apps, it's unlikely you will be able to remove it. And even if you were: would you trust to have eliminated all malware that might have shipped with the device? I'd rather not, and decide for a different one.

Welcome to the Android Enthusiasts! Have you tried checking the logs to find out what's going on? Any hints from there?

comment custom os in android phone Samsung s3neo
Welcome to the Android Enthusiasts! It's always helpful to put a bit more than just what the screen says, to give some context. Could you please edit your post and let us know what brought you into this situation? What were you doing when this "critical problem" happened? What screen you are on (an app, home-screen, boot-screen) – and where is this message shown?

comment Droid-2 stuck at boot
Thanks, @Firelord! I've just replaced the wpa_supplicant.conf with a "virgin" one (from the ROM image), that repeating error is gone. wifi_on was already set to 0 in the database. According to the logs Zygote starts up, the system service is created, and all packages are initialized. Finally, last entry in the log says E/MobileDataStateTracker( 1643): default: Ignoring feature request because could not acquire PhoneService, and that's it. On the screen, I'm still in the boot animation. Tried again with SIM and SD card removed, same thing.

comment HTC Desire 510 will not install apps to SD card
As I wrote: depends on what your device supports. Download from Play are always going to internal storage, where the app is installed is a different thing.

comment HTC Desire 510 will not install apps to SD card
Welcome to the Android Enthusiasts! Some more details needed here: which Android version is running on the device? Is the device rooted? Also note that not all apps can be moved to SD, and not all devices (or rather their specific ROMs) permit it at all. Also see our app2sd tag-wiki for details.

comment “SD card is blank or has unsupported filesystems” message in Samsung Galaxy S4
That was just one point. Have you tried the card in any other device? Have you tried a different card in your device? Hard to tell which side the error is on without at least testing that. Whether the "other device" is another phone, or some SD card reader, depends on what's available – though using the latter makes it much easier.
