comment Tablet fails to boot up completely
Welcome to the Android Enthusiasts, Johnetta! We will need more details to help you: Did this problem exist from the beginning? If not, what were the last changes you've done (installing something, changed settings, etc.)? What do you mean by "power on screens"? A factory-reset is very likely to solve the issue, but maybe there are other ways without deleting all you data, apps, and settings.

comment Galaxy S4 Internal Storage
Something is secretly eating up my Acer Iconia A500 internal memory and I need help finding it might prove helpful in your case. Also, as you write about a "failed install", you might wish to check the /data/local folder, where files are usually downloaded into when installing.

comment How do I access Play Store?
Welcome to the Android Enthusiasts, Rachel! Same symptoms I had a few days ago when setting up my sister's new S4 mini. After having created your Google account, do a reboot. That solved it here. Please report back if it did so for you as well, because if it does, I should make it an answer :)

comment Empty /data/log folder
Using a terminal app (or adb shell), making yourself root (su), and then running rm -rf /data/log/* should do the trick. But instead of permanently shooing stray dogs out of your house, why not close the door? I mean, try figuring out what is filling the logs permanently, and fix that.

That was quite a wall of text. Welcome to the Android Enthusiast – and please, try to improve your formatting skills :)

comment Confusion about photo-backups Android 4.4
No idea. I refuse using G+ (and all the other "big data collectors"). My backup is simple: Sync the image folders with their counterparts on my PC when logged into my home WiFi :)

comment How to automatic alarm birthdays contacts
I thought so, that's why I've picked those 3 examples which do exactly that: using Google Contacts, not duplicating them.

comment Steps Necessary To Update A Custom Rom To Its latest Version?
@Simon would have been better to make that a separate question. Nobody will expect a "new question" inside an old, answered one. You can of course link here for reference. I've no experiences with "dirty flashing", sorry.

comment Is there any way to sync wifi between devices?
@dotVezz Sure. But Celeritas might wish to do that without involving Google services, e.g. for privacy reasons (remember: Google stores WiFi APNs unencrypted, and you cannot even delete them from their servers).
