comment How to know if the GPS signal has fixed my position on Lollipop?
That's a workaround more than a solution. Somehow, GPS Status is remaining open even after I stop using the GPS enabled apps.

Finally it was not necessary to mount it. It was sufficient to extract it with tar -xf archive_name but the app doesn't install.

comment How to extract stock apk from TWRP backup?
The extension is .ext4.win. Somehow I'm not managing to mount it with sudo mount -t ext4 -o loop system.ext4.win ./Mount. I'm getting a generic error (wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/loop0, missing codepage or helper program, or other error). I'm aware that CM might lack drivers but trying it doesn't carry risks.

comment Remove Google Search Bar on Nexus devices running on stock Lollipop
On Android 5.1.1 (CM 12.1) this method works. Long press on home screen, in the bottom there are wallpapers, widgets, settings. Above them there are 3 dots in a sort of triangular shape. You can disable the search bar from there.

comment Bizarre New Battery Behavior in GT-I9300
If it's a new battery you could return it for a replacement under warranty I suppose. About your question: if the phone turns off haphazardly it could cause data corruption so even though I don't think I would cause physical damage (unless it heats up and burns) then at worst you'll need to factory reset the phone.

No the Facebook app is not installed. Google Settings app? What's that?

comment Phone using GPS while the screen is off
Thank for this information. One little thing however, on turning the screen on, the gps symbol is on for a fraction of a second, and turns immediately off. It's like an app (or the system) was searching for my position while on sleep and turned off, sort of, to avoid me discovering that the GPS was being used when I turned my screen on. The app might have stopped using the gps a fraction of a second too late so I do get a very short glimpse of the icon in the notification bar.

The standard weather app is set to Not know my location.
