comment DroidExplorer.Runner crashes when restoring from backup
As the developer, my suggestion is to file a bug on the project Issue Tracker. I do not want to use Android Enthusiasts to report or track bugs as it is not what this site is designed for and would not benefit anyone.

comment “input string was not in a correct format” DroidExplorer Desktop
I have added a comment/question to the bug. Once I get that information, I may be able to provide a "work around" here, and then a fix in code later.

comment “input string was not in a correct format” DroidExplorer Desktop
This is more suitable as a bug report. I am out of town and have very limited computer access. But my initial thought is it has to do with the versions of the platforms downloaded with the SDK. There as a time that one of the platform names did not follow their own standard. You could try to remove the platforms by deleting all the folders in the SDK platforms folder. Then add the platforms again.

comment Restore Droid Explorer Backup
@RobFisher it would be in the same location. Make sure you have java installed, as it is required to unpack.

Could you expand your answer and explain how to do this? Just from your answer, I do not know what you are suggesting.

comment Turn phone on with ADB or Fastboot?
In order for this to work, they would have to be in fastboot. And that would mean that the phone is on. The original question is can the device be powered on my adb or fastboot command line tools. And The answer to that is "no", since the device has to be on for it to listen for any of the commands from those.

comment Why is there :nopm: in some photo file names?
After thinking about this for some time, I actually think that :nopm: means NO Photo Manager. As it appears that the Google+ Photos app will not backup the photos that contain :nopm:. This is just a theory.

comment Options For Samsung Galaxy S5 ACTIVE “SMG870W”- Users with Custom Rom compatibility?
Did you just say that Cyanogen developers modify the original Samsung Rom? because that could not be further from the truth. Cyanogen has been build custom builds of Android since before Samsung even had an Android phone. Cyanogen (and other custom rom teams) build off of AOSP. A lot of the features that you see in Samsung ROMs were available in Cyanogen (and other roms) first. With all that said, this does not even begin to answer the original question and is nothing more than a rant.

comment Are Android games and apps auto screen resizeable?
In theory, yes, the application should scale. Now, it may not be perfect. Assets (sprites, images, buttons) may look stretched, other than that, it should work. Now if the app was made for android 4.0, it may not run on 2.3.5 device.

comment LG G3 picture in internal memory missing in Gallery
Why perform a factory reset? That will reset the entire device, removing apps, accounts added to the device, app data, etc. That is extreme request for "try this first".

To use Odin you need to be in Download mode, not recovery. Download is Volume Down + Home + Power button.

comment How can I change the default browser?
This is an option on 4.x and later. But some devices, like samsung devices, do not let you disable things like browser, email, calendar apps.

comment Resized display because the touchscreen in the top 20% is unresponsive but it's sitting in the center, can I move it down?
The title doesn't say it all. I do not know what you are looking to move, or what you are trying to accomplish.
