comment Large difference in battery discharge, when Nexus 7 is on and off
@beeshyams Sorry, same on this side. I have also no experience using logcat or similar tools. Plus, I'm not using that Nexus anymore, so I guess, that ends discussion. Unfortunately, without a conclusion.

comment Verizon Galaxy Nexus Discharging When Plugged In Even After USB Replacement
@t0mm13b OP clearly says about replacing microUSB port himself. Are you really sure, that carrier's shop will accept faulty phone, if it was modified by user himself? What about warranty?

comment Large difference in battery discharge, when Nexus 7 is on and off
@beeshyams I have no idea why. The only opinion, that I found, was Area 51-like, that when tablet is switch off, it only pretends to be switched off, but still sends data to Google. Since it does this silently, it consumes a lot of energy. Much more than when sending these data officially (when turned on). I know, that this explanation sounds like a maniac blable, but the fact remains, that my Nexus can spend up to entire week on single charge, when turned on all the time, while dies completely, from full charge to 0% during single night, when turned off.

comment Incorrect dates on screenshots taken on Galaxy Nexus i9250
Date is auto-updated basing on SIM carrier cellar network data, so yes -- it is up to date. Files are copied using microUSB cable, over stupid-like-a-hell MTP protocol.

comment Is it possible, that old smartphone becomes slow simply because it is old?
As in case of Alex.S' answer, I'm voting up yours, because it can be value to other readers, but I think, I won't accept it, since it is off-topic to my question. I clearly stated, that I did a full factory reset (so I assume, everything, that you're writing, that slows down my phone was cleared to the status of brand new phone) and this hasn't speed up my phone in any noticeable way.

comment Is it possible, that old smartphone becomes slow simply because it is old?
It seems, that your answer / suggestion stands completely opposite to my situation, as my (all) Samsung Galaxy Nexus has Android 4.3. If Google added TRIM support to that version of Android, then I have it and the lack of it / Flash memory wear-off are not the case. Your answer is good and valuable to others so I voted it up, but I must consider, whether to accept it or not, as your suggestion clearly does not answer the question (no TRIM issue on Android 4.3).

comment how to use a remote camera (webcam or Windows-usb) as my Android built-in camera(s)
Can you clear up this question and be more specific? Because I got lost. In second paragraph you're writing about true Android-based device with no built-in camera. In last (PS) paragraph you are writing about virtual Android device run on Windows HyperVisior. For first (true Android device with USB-attached external camera) -- take a look at this answer. For other option (virtual Android device), I don't know, if there is any solution.

comment Certain applications icons are missing in Nova Launcher
I'm accepting your answer, because it brings argument, that may actually explain everything here. If app has no GUI, then putting icon / shortcut to it may be pointless. Thank you.

comment Auto turn on after power on for an Android-based device
Exactly! I plug-in charging cable on completely turned off device, it turns on and a nice battery charging animation appears.

comment Any application to scan non-standard QR codes
Update: No, NeoReader is not able to read MaxiCodes ("the other candidate"). It does not recognize them on screen / on paper and when such image is uploaded to NeoReader (an option to recognize an image from library), it crashes.

comment Any application to scan non-standard QR codes
Thank you for a great answer, even though, it is for an off-topic question. BTW: "the other candidate" was already identified by me. It is MaxiCode.

comment Certain applications icons are missing in Nova Launcher
Plus: I wasn't too much surprised, that I can't see these two apps after checking Show Hidden Apps, because I've been to Nova's hidden apps list many times, from different points (for example from Nova Settings > Drawer > Hide Apps, suggested by @bmdixon). I can't even search them in app drawer, while app drawer's search goes through all icons, Nova have access to, no matter if they're hidden or not. As in previous comments, for some reason unknown to me, Nova doesn't see these two apps anywhere within itself. They're accessible only on system level.

comment Certain applications icons are missing in Nova Launcher
Yes and no. Yes, because you're right, that I was tapping in wrong place. After tapping on tab itself I found your options and checked Show Hidden Apps. No, because after doing this, I still can't see neither Sound Recorder nor Voice Search icons. For some reasons these two apps (maybe more) are completely not seen anywhere within Nova Prime and I can only list them in system level (in system settings). So, we're going back to my initial question -- what can be causing, that Nova Prime does not have any access to certain system apps and does not list them anywhere?

Sir, yes, sir! :> Take a look at an updated question. Thanks.

comment Certain applications icons are missing in Nova Launcher
When I open my app drawer, I don't see Apps and Widgets tabs, because I have already configured Nova Prime to suit my needs. I have five my own custom tabs and I have turned off Widget tab at all. When I tap three-dot menu button in app drawer, I can see Nova Settings, which assures me, that I'm actually using Nova Prime as main launcher! :> However, what concerns me the most, is that I don't see context menu items, you have on your screenshot, i.e. Show Hidden Apps and Edit Tab.... Instead, I have: Google Play and Nova Settings. This case begins to be really weird.

comment Certain applications icons are missing in Nova Launcher
Hm... strange. I had Show hidden apps option only in Nova Settings > Drawer > Hide Apps, you mentioned first, in three-dot context menu. Selecting this option does not changed anything (list get longer, but again, no apps were checked as hidden). I don't have Show hidden apps button at the bottom of the Add to Home Screen > Apps (I have only apps list and Select Multiple button), which is odd, as I seems to have newest version of Nova Launcher Prime.

comment Certain applications icons are missing in Nova Launcher
No, this is not the case. I have a long list of apps there, but none of them is checked. I don't think, this could be the case, because -- if I get it right -- this controls only apps in drawer. This would not explain, why these apps are also missing from Add to Home Screen > Apps list.

comment Unable to copy files to Nexus 7 / Android KitKat
This question is about copying files natively, through Windows. It does not offer any resume functionality. Using 3rd party software with resumed downloads in my idea of solving this problem. But, that is not, what this question was about.

comment Force shutdown on a Galaxy Nexus?
Hm... My Galaxy Nexus, that I bought on May 2012 (so, before your question) once I press and hold Power Button, always shows shut down menu, which does include "Power Off" option. Your doesn't? What am I missing?
