comment Run any user apps in safemode?
Those facts should be part of the question itself – you can edit it anytime (I did that for you just now, so you might wish to delete the comments I've integrated). // And as nice as the idea might sound, that's not what safe-mode is for. You should rather 1) make a Nandroid-backup, then 2) completely reset your device, and 3) start over with parts of the apps to find out which one is the culprit.

comment Install older version of apk on to newer installed version or root SH-06E 1.00.08
That would contradict its purpose. If that could be done that easily, every hacker could replace any app with a hacked variant (though it would be hard to get that "hacked variant" on Play), as your device would no longer detect that. It's a security measure; you might compare it with a "PGP signed message", a "certificate of authenticity". To sign, you need the private key, which you don't have.

comment adb backup probably fails when trying to backup a single application
Just a guess: it might be the app is "protected", and ADB thus doesn't grab the .apk but instead a corresponding note into the backup. You might try with e.g. the Helium App Sync and Backup app, which does an ADB backup directly on the device, whether it gives any additional clue (as the name of the app suggests, you could even use this app to "sync" the app+data to the other device).

comment unknown error code during skype application install
Welcome to Android Enthusiasts, maria! As Shywim pointed out: this error doesn't come from Skype (or whatever app you're installing) itself, but from the "installer". Please follow up the link to find what it's about and how to deal with it. Thanks!

comment Run any user apps in safemode?
What good shall that do? The purpose of safe-mode is exactly that no user apps are opened. It's not a mode you should permanently operate in, but rather intended to be able to remove troublemakers etc. So what you're asking for would rather contradict its definition. What are you trying to achieve? Can you give some background why this should be needed?
