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.

if /system/xbin/su exists, then you did not lose root. That is root.

While this is off-topic, check to make sure you have added the <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" /> permission to your manifest.

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 internel 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".

comment Set_perm: “/tmp/backuptool.sh” not a valid uid
@IsaacWalker-cox you shouldn't have to edit the script. if you have to edit the script, it's not meant for your device. is this the version you downloaded? I ask because you have your device as GT-3P110 and the Tab 2 7.0 is the GT-P3110. Do you have a compatible recovery, TWRP or Clockwork? That would be another reason for it to error.

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.

comment Phone app comes up when the phone is unlocked by swiping
swipe straight up, if you swipe from the left, or to the right from the center, it will open the phone app. if you do it in the opposite direction you will open the camera.

@BenJokisch I added some info about adbd insecure to my answer. That app should solve your adb root problem on NON-CM devices.

comment Droid Explorer does not recognize my HTC Incredible S
@lahara could you leave this comment. I think it is useful to the discussion. I only wanted to clean up comments before that were later addressed in the question or answer. I am interested in ADBD Insecure. I want to look in to that and see about maybe recommended that app to others when you get the warning message.
