comment Show Notifications missing in app settings
Apart from "uninstalling the app", I'm not aware of any (never felt the need, to be honest). But you might check some apps to adjust notifications to figure yourself – and then let us know?

comment Add repeating tasks using stock calendar
Well, I'd say that's what Todo Lists are for? Though often "joined" with calendars PIM-style, they are a bit different from calendar events – despite of them being possible to store within iCal format.

comment Why can I see '/' in a file manager when my device is not rooted?
Also, there are some r/w directories outside the sdcard path, as e.g. /data/local, which are useful to access is specific cases.

comment Cannot write files to sd card
Glad to read you were able to solve the issue! I've summed up things in a separate answer, so it might help others in similar situations (and you next time, where the culprit might be a different one). Be welcome to accept it (tick the check-mark next to it), which makes it easier for others to identify questions solved :)

comment establishing USB connection takes > 3 minutes and times out, charging works
"cable seems fine because charging works": disagreed on the reasoning. USB plugs have at least 4 (some have 5) pins in use. 2 are for power, the other two for data. So if one of the data connections got broken, it would still charge fine. // Have you tried a different cable?

comment Using IP to ping a real Android device that is plugged by USB from computer
Also worth noting: 160.xxx.xxx.xxx doesn't sound like a local network address. It's most likely the address of the mobile data connection, where ping (and other services) directed toward the device often is blocked by the carriers routers.
