comment Why is the SD-card mounted to “/sdcard/external_sd” instead of “/sdcard” (or “/mnt/sdcard”)?
This works with some models of phones, but not all. It doesn't work for my LG Motion 4G, Android 4.0.4. Thx

That was definitely a rant, Deecee, but regardless, I appreciate your input. Cheers

Sorry, I thought there might be a generic solution. I edited my question to include my phone type.

comment Charging over USB can be harmful?
Charging from a computer over USB may actually be better than fast charging from a wall socket. Reason1) Batteryuniversity has shown that Lithium Ion batteries that are charged too fast will die sooner. Reason2) Charging slower will not heat the battery as much, which can prolong battery life

comment How do I perform a full pre-rooting backup of an Android phone?
I think you meant to say, "ADB backup allows you to back up only your data". But yes, you can back up all of the data too. I don't know what would prevent you from downloading one portion of data and allow another portion. It would seem an odd point to make. I just think it's just too bad adb backup can't "perform a full" and "complete backup", which would include the /system.

Richard, I think the question was asking how to "perform a full" and "complete backup", of "the whole filesystem". I do not think that your link provides such an answer.

comment Does constant charging harm my Android cellphone?
Never intentionally discharge a lithium ion battery to 0%. It will shorten the lifespan, and in rare cases it will cause the battery to no longer function.

Good point Izzy, but apparently some manufacturers are wrongfully redirecting apps to the internal space via getExternalStorageDirectory(). stackoverflow.com/questions/11281010/…
