Fab, what 4G? There are many devices having that in their name. Where does that shortcut point to? Also, the Android version is still missing (though I doubt that's important here – I rather guess it's your shortcut). And what videos (type, e.g. MP4) are you trying to play? Did those play before? Android itself might not support all video formats by default, so it could well be you need a specific Video-Player for this (did that format work before?).

comment How to remove the Google Now search bar from Nexus 5
Oy sh!t! Wasn't aware of that (who would dream of such a thing?) Sorry for that then. So that was what you meant by "the usual procedure"? Could you edit that into your question, and we remove the corresponding comments then?

comment Can not access Internet on N9100 Android 4.4.2
Now you're talking about mobile data – and yes, that's connected to the SIM (other than WiFi). Usually, when plugging in a SIM Android tries to automatically configure the network corresponding to your provider. If your provider is relatively unknown, that might fail. You will need to check the APN settings then. If no APN is configured, contact your provider for details; they might send you a service-SMS for auto-configuration.

Welcome to the Android Enthusiasts! Without some context, it's hard to see what the issue is. Did it work before? If so: what did you do between "did work" and "doesn't work" (installing some app, playing with the file system, changing some settings, flashing a new ROM, …) that might have caused the issue? What device you're using, and which Android version is it running? What "files icon" are you pushing?

comment How to remove the Google Now search bar from Nexus 5
While I agree with @GiantTree (I remember the very same "hardcoded" thingy), you could try disabling Google Now via the Google Settings app. Not sure whether that helps, but it's worth a try – especially as you don't want to keep Google Now anyway.

WiFi has nothing at all to do with the SIM card. Can you see the company's WiFi network name in Settings › WiFi? If so, tap it and provide the network key. It then should connect to this WiFi network.

comment How do I know when an app was used in Android?
@Firelord what a coincident: I've just re-checked your post right know before seeing the notification :) I would upvote it again if I could, very thorough and detailed. Now we just need the missing "timing" detail for Lollipop … Thanks for your hard work!

comment Why are some lollipop notifications able to be swiped away on lockscreen?
+1 from me :) Note that this applies to other versions of Android as well, at least to 4.x.

That sounds like a logical cause – especially if the issue started right after that.

comment Modify shared preferences with PC
A possibility might be installing an SSH server (see: SSH Clients & Server) and do it via e.g. putty. For that, the SSH daemon on the Android end of course needs to run in root mode. Same thing when using a Samba Server, or some other means of file server.

OK, thanks! So let's remove the comments, all is integrated with your question now. While waiting for answers: Please check the questions in the "related" section (to the right when using the PC web browser), and also see our other answered questions on USB connection issues. With some luck, that already gets you started. Fingers crossed!

Try checking with get-install-location if it took the new setting. If it didn't, try again with root powers.

comment how can i restore loosing system applications
First lesson learned, meli: don't use root to touch system stuff unless you exactly know what you're doing. Second lesson along: before removing an app, always freeze (disable) it to see if everything still works. And lesson 3: if you finally remove something, make sure you 1) have a backup of that, 2) have a complete system backup (Nandroid) is to be recommended, 3) remember what you did. Then, the answer is: restore from your backup. As we can't be sure what else you possibly broke, safest thing is flashing the ROM again.

comment How can I find the messaging sounds that are used in Google's Messenger (sms) app?
1) which device/ROM? It's a known fact that different devices/ROMs often use different defaults. 2) you did not make clear what exactly you're after. Thus mentioning "source code" could be seen as indicator for a development question. Note that the question was not closed as off-topic, but as unclear what you're asking. All the time you could (and still can) edit your post and clarify. If you do so now, it can be re-opened. So what you are looking for: the sound file for the messenger as shipped with AOSP Lollipop, where to find it on the device? Then what for the source code?

comment Cannot seem to lock GPS, what else can I try?
@Zlatty I can't tell why, and you can't force it to fix if it doesn't see a single satellite. With all what you have tried (and I assume it worked before with the same ROM – otherwise trying a different ROM might be worth), it might well be a hardware issue.

comment How can I find the messaging sounds that are used in Google's Messenger (sms) app?
@JayWick 1) very low quality of the post. 2) migrate where to? I don't know a site that would like to have it. 3) again, if it's not quite clear what is asked for, one cannot say where it would fit even if there were another SE site it might fit.

You missed a dash: adb shell pm set-install-location 0 it is. See these posts :)

comment Cannot seem to lock GPS, what else can I try?
well, SAT 0/20 says it doesn't even see a single satellite, so it has nothing to fix on. Maybe the GPS unit (or its antenna) gave up.
