All except for one, it seems ;) You're always welcome.

comment Root, but “file cannot be deleted”
Glad you like it, @OrganicMarble – for more details on the file system structure, you might also wish to take a look at Android Folder Hierarchy. Except for the Dalvik specific stuff, it should still be valid up to Lollipop, though the answer is two years old :) Also relevant: Where Android apps store data?

comment How to deal with users who give your app 1 star “because app won't download/install”?
Sounds reasonable. Good luck! (Consider removing it here then – it will be closed anyway ;)

Sorry, no. There might not even be a fitting SE site. But be welcome to check with Where can I ask questions that aren't Android Enthusiast questions?

comment Lost Alcatel 1011 with no google maps or google play
From the screenshot, I doubt it is an Android device at all (neither could I find it on GSMArena to check for specifications). IMEI.Info lists its OS as "vendor specific", and Alcatel itself calls it a "feature phone". So: No Android, and we cannot help you here, sorry.

Have you checked with our data-recovery tag-wiki already? What have you tried, and how did it fail? Also see: How can I recover a deleted file on Android?

comment Cyanogenmod works with ext4 filesystems on sdcard?
Good idea! However, shouldn't that be an answer (a little more detailed, maybe)? On SE sites, it's perfectly fine to answer your own question :)

comment How can I access my Android Internal Storage (data/data) from the pc?
Sure it is. See: Is there a way to look inside and modify an adb backup created file? / How do you extract an App's data from a full backup made through “adb backup”? (taken from our backup tag-wiki). // PS: Don't forget to "accept" (click the check-mark next to it) and/or "upvote" (click the up-arrow) the answer if it solved your issue :)

comment I cant use my external storage on my tablet
@JeremyClark it doesn't automatically switch the download folder to the SD card. I fact, with Android 2.1 the card is mostly used as "media storage" only (photos, your music and videos). So again: Please edit your question and include exactly what you want to achieve, what you've already tried, and where you're stuck. Otherwise there's not much we can do to help you.

comment Cyanogenmod works with ext4 filesystems on sdcard?
If you just care for the group, you could try to let the "parent folder" (where you mount the storage) belong to that group; AFAIR "child folders" inherit that then as long as the "owner" belongs to that group. As at the same time you might wish to have the created file set to rw for the group, that would be the umask again. But how to set that up for a specific folder/mount, I have no experience. That's better asked at SuperUser or Unix&Linux (wherever it fits better, check their resp. /help/on-topic). I see/share your points for extfs, but not sure how Android deals with it on sd card.

comment LocationClient location tracking not working
Please, always make sure having read the /help/on-topic page of an SE site before posting your question there. As above message points out, you hit the user-oriented Android site here – but should have used SO instead. Another thing good to check is the sites' /tour page, btw.

comment why can't I download app do to error retrieving information from server
Welcome to the Android Enthusiasts! First, please provide sufficient details so we know what you are experiencing: What did you use to download? Are you talking about the Google Playstore app, or something else? If something else, please describe what exactly you're doing and where that error comes.

comment Android 4.4.2 external SD card mount paths and Titanium Backup
I'd expect everything in /storage/emulated rather to point to the internal card (see: /storage/emulated/legacy/ vs /storage/emulated/0/ vs data/data/myApp). /storage/emulated/legacy usually is a symlink; check where it's pointing to (ls -l in a terminal or via adb shell) and what's mounted there ( mount) to make sure.

comment Uninstall programs that are not visible in Application manager
If "user-installed apps" are not listed here, they're usually no longer installed (and the "big chunk of data" thus must be left-overs from some "unclean uninstallation"). To verify, you can use a terminal app or, better, adb shell from the computer, and run pm list packages -3. This lists all user-installed apps using their package names. To know what the "app name" behind them is, you can e.g. visit their app-page at Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=<package_name>. If the corresponding apps are not listed here either, they're definitely no longer installed.

comment Uninstall programs that are not visible in Application manager
OK, getting closer. Now just to check what you mean by "application manager", as some manufacturers ship such for their own apps/stores. Starting from the home-screen, check Settings › Apps, and in there select the Downloaded tab. That should list all apps installed by "the user", regardless of by what means. Is this what you're talking about? If not, are the apps you want to get rid of listed there?

comment Cyanogenmod works with ext4 filesystems on sdcard?
If you create a new file, it will always be owned by the user who created it. So you would have to sudo su - media_rw and work as that when creating files. As for the permissions, check man umask to set the umask correctly in ~media_rw/.profile. // Besides, that's not really an Android question. Wait until your apps create files there and see by whom they're owned ;)
