I was referring to RAM/ROM-debug tools that (in theory) only LEO and Intelligence persons have access to.

comment 3G Modem sim on my Nexus S
Are you asking how to normally setup an Android device as a WiFi hot-spot ("tethering"), OR how to achieve this with the SIM card you using?

4.1.x would be Jelly Bean, not Ice Cream Sandwich.

If everything could just be easily recovered after a data wipe/factory reset, that same data would be available to the finder (possessor) or any lost/stolen tablet (or smart-phone). That said, there are forensic tools out there (if you can gain access to them) which may be able to recover ALL recent data and history.

comment Airdroid modifies timestamps of copied files
This is the classic push/pull issue with FTP. If you copy files to your PC (push), it does not trust the source (and replaces the time/date stamps). If you copy files from the device (pull), your PC has control and retains the time/date stamps. The same issue occurs when FTP copying between two Ubuntu hosts, using Nautilus. If you can configure settings, you can overcome this.

comment Samsung S3: avoid automatic screen lock
With some types of 'touch' technology, there could be hardware support to 'wake-up' on any activity. But this would be susceptible to false triggers (wake-up in pocket, etc.) Many of the 1st/2nd generation smart phones did this. And their battery life was v. poor.
