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.

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.

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.

comment Restoring an ADB backup onto a different phone of the same model?
They could be, depending on what you chose to backup. If you do a full "system" backup, the chance of it working on another phone are a lot lower than if you just backup the user apps and user app data.

comment Have I lost my phone forever because of samsung firmware?
It wont boot now because you probably flashed the wrong version. You need to flash the correct version.

comment Have I lost my phone forever because of samsung firmware?
I don't understand why you kept the phone if it never worked. And what are you flashing with ODIN, are you sure you flashed the correct firmware?

There is no way to turn off notifications for "some" items that come in to the inbox.

comment How can I eliminate duplicate notifications when I have a custom notification on a Gmail label?
As long as it is in the [inbox] you will get the notification. you could create a rule that "archives" it so it only exists in [special] and never in [inbox].
