comment How to create a kernel source from a similar device's kernel source?
How does that affect end users now? They won't do the porting, the devs do. And if I get a good kernel for my device, as an end-user I wouldn't care whether it was ported and from which device. Sorry, but this is not the place for it. And no, I cannot tell you what would be, I'm not an Android dev either (though a good guess would include XDA, where exactly that has been done: My Motorola Milestone 2 runs a ROM basically adapted from another Motorola device, I just don't remember from which).

comment How safe or effective it is to use a non-OEM data cable with a Samsung Galaxy S4 mini?
Please see: Other manufacturer's USB data cable for charging? Same should apply for data transfer: as long as it's a good quality cable, manufacturer should not matter.

Welcome to the Android Enthusiasts! This site is for users of Android, which means that questions about development/programming are off-topic here (see the What topics can I ask about here?). You might also wish to consult Where can I ask questions that aren't Android Enthusiast questions? for a fitting place to your question.

Have you checked with our locked-out tag-wiki already? Contains a lot of pointers.

comment my phone says “invalid URL” and “Error 944” whenever I download apps
Playstore error 944 (undocumented) is, according to some blogs, just a "temporary glitch" (most likely on the Google servers). Advice given towards this is: "Try again later". For the "invalid URL": as Andrew said.

comment how to recover from boot loop?
Welcome to the Android Enthusiasts! And congrats to your choice of tags (not all new users do that fine). What you might have missed is: most of our tags have little wikis attached. Have you checked e.g. the boot-loop tag-wiki, and tried some of the hints? Did nothing help from there? In case you've really missed that, please check there first – so we don't have to duplicate suggestions :) Good luck – and again, welcome!

comment need help with Samsung Galaxy S5 sm-g900d
See our odex tag-wiki for "deodexed". Using a Samsung device, you should know what Knox is. And sorry, I cannot help you with further details, not using any Samsung Android device myself.

comment Hide games in “apps” in Play Store?
Uh? It's been quite a while since I've used it last – but apart from the Games category, I don't remember any such disturbancy. So maybe that's changed – sorry for that then!

comment how to remotely uninstall apps or lock and delete data in android via laptop
Welcome to the Android Enthusiasts! You did already a great job with your choice for tags. What you might not yet have discovered is: most of them have tag-wikis. You might be interested in visiting the lost-phone tag-wiki, which addresses most of your concerns here.

comment How to update a BML S50
Though you're absolutely right, @M4T: your formatting is horrible, if I might say so – and also requires the OP to copy/paste instead of simply click. How do I update Android on my device? and Where can I find stock or custom ROMs for my Android device? would be more decent. Keep in mind Carolina is new to this site (just joined today), so be lenient :)

@MatthewRead I guess the OP really means RAM – taking the context (task manager). Tried to cover it all with my answer nevertheless :)

comment Malware on LG G3 redirecting all browsers
Indeed, @Firelord – I agree with you in so far. But that doesn't tell us whether it's a different ISP then. Some companies offer "bundles" for landline and mobile, so it might be the same one.

comment Malware on LG G3 redirecting all browsers
@Muteking does that happen on mobile data as well as on WiFi? I've heard of cases where ISPs inject stuff – so as most likely your PC and WiFi using the same provider, that might explain things. If mobile data uses a different one, and it doesn't happen then, it certainly would harden this suspicion. To verify, you could also check using the WiFi of a friend who definitely has a different provider.

comment Samsung Galaxy S3 Internal Storage Issues?
Using a terminal app, you can directly call the relevant binaries (note that on Linux/Unix systems, there is no chkdsk – but it's named fsck, "fs" standing for "file system"). In user-mode you should be able to test integrity; in order to repair anything you probably need root powers. // I agree that sounds like file system errors or bad blocks; but with the external SD card affected as well, it might rather be a defective controler. If you still have warranty, I'd hurry up giving the device to service while you can.

comment How to access the plain text content in /data/misc/keystore/user_0?
Frederick, could you explain how that's relevant to end users of Android? What you describe might be relevant to developers (and security experts to check for security flaws). From the end-users point of view, I see no relevance here – and to them this site is dedicated.

I don't know which ROM you could take. Please follow the link in my answer, that should get you started.

No prob – we all have those "silly moments" :) As it solved your issue, I've made it an answer which you can "accept" (to make this question show up as "solved"). Enjoy!

comment Update APK from command line using ADB?
For me, adb install -r foo.apk always worked. Which ADB version you are using? Maybe there's a more recent one, and maybe yours has some "bug". And you're correct: uninstalling would remove the app data. Work-around: adb backup -noapk -f foobar.ab com.foobar.app (just backup data), then adb uninstall -k com.foobar.app (just removes the app, keeps the data), followed by adb install (with or without -r) might do the trick. If the app data got lost: adb restore foobar.ab should get it back. // Does any of that work for you, so I shall make it an answer?
