comment How can I root my Samsung Admire sch-720
I am not familiar with that device, what version of android does it have. That sometimes can be a deciding factor on how you can root it, along with the device model. There may be different root methods for a device when updates go out.

Thanks @MatthewRead, I knew that too. Just forgot. I retracted my close vote.

comment Hangouts Icons Meanings
It means they are not looking at your message. Doesn't mean that hangouts is open, or closed, it means they are not looking.

comment What is my vpn password
How would anyone here know what your VPN password is? Your VPN password is usually set by the "VPN Provider", if could be your work credentials, for example. This question is off topic, if it is a real question, it is not related to android; otherwise, it is not a real question.

comment Hangouts Icons Meanings
If there is a computer next to their icon, it means they are on a PC (or chromebook). if there is a phone, they are on their phone. The position of their icon shows the last message they read. And you are correct, if it is "dim" they are not currently looking at the message.

comment Full Backup of non-rooted devices
@sameer I dont think this will help in a boot loop situation. The backup and restore require you to be in the android OS to run them.

@UmarFarooqKhawaja Take a look at the FAQ for droid explorer. The last Q/A addresses your issue.

comment Downgrade Nexus 4 from 4.4 to 4.2
Factory reset only removes "user data", it does nothing to system files. A factory image is probably your best option.

This does not really answer the question. If you have a different question, you can ask it by clicking Ask Question. You can also add a bounty to draw more attention to this question once you have enough reputation.

comment Ways to remove android device encryption
Decrypting data is not the same as removing the encryption. Your statement about "if android can decrypt /data, any other code running on the cpu can too" is not true. Android system level applications can have more permissions than non-system applications, they can also access things that non-system apps cannot. If you are asking, "Can this be done", Yes, in theory it is possible, but just about everything "is possible". That doesn't mean anyone has done it. How to do it would be outside the scope of this site. The only real way to do it is to do a factory reset.

Factory reset is the only way to remove the encryption from the device, you will lose all your data.

comment Why did my Nexus 4 download the Jelly Bean 4.3 update again?
are you sure it is not an update to 4.3? They do release patches to the OS that do not increase the "major/minor" (4.3) version numbers.

But then there wouldn't be a need for this question/answer :)

comment What do the permissions that applications require mean?
@NamG.VU That's because this isn't taken directly from any place directly off the web. It comes from multiple places, one of which could be the android docs (but not really), another is comments through out the android source code, and is experience using/developing with the permissions.

comment Where does Google Play Music v5 store music locally?
stock android doesn't support grep. and stock ls doesn't support those options, (or at least not all of them). So this doesn't really answer his question.

comment Is there a way to find out the Google account currently registered to my stolen phone?
If you report the device stolen to your carrier, they will blacklist the IMEI.

comment When tethering, is there a way to turn off the phone's own data usage?
true, but you could answer the question and link to it for further reading. I wasn't saying to copy the entire article, I was saying that you should answer the question here, not just point to an external source. I was refering to the help - Links to external resources are encouraged, but please add context around the link so your fellow users will have some idea what it is and why it’s there. Always quote the most relevant part of an important link, in case the target site is unreachable or goes permanently offline.

Instead of just linking to another source, you should post the answer here. If that page is removed, or unavailable, it becomes a very poor answer.
