comment Restrict particular apps from syncing depending on current WiFi connection
Glad to help! Alternatives to Tasker are listed e.g. in my App-Lists on Automation (Profile Switching and more) – just in case Tasker proves a little too complex (took me ~3 days to find my way into Tasker, and I've bought it straight away then, never regretted it – but YMMV ;)

Just make sure to not check it on initialization (i.e. after the factory-reset, when the wizard guides you to setup your Google account on the device). So you still have the latest backup stored, just not re-stored ;)

Have you checked the "Backup to Google" option? If so, your apps might have been re-installed automatically once you've configured your account again.

comment Insufficient Storage Available
I've just added the insufficient-memory tag to your question. You might wish to consult its tag-wiki for some hints.

Affirmative, that should really have done the job. So either the implementation there is faulty (please take a look at the tag-wiki for alternatives) – or you confused some of the pre-installed apps with those you've installed. After the factory reset, did the device come up with the registration dialogs (asking you to create a Google account etc.)? Have you tried to factory-reset via the recovery menu?

Are you sure you did a factory reset? Because if you did, none of the apps you've installed yourself into "phone memory" should have survived that, neither should any of your data. Pre-installed apps of course remain, as they are installed in read-only system storage.

comment Updated my Galaxy S II and know no spell check
First, to make sure we know what you're asking for: please edit your question, add some more details describing the issue, and maybe check the spelling (no pun intended, sorry). Currently it reads as if you don't know what spell-check is. Aren't you rather meaning the spell-check functionality on the device is gone ("now there's no spell check", without the "k")?
