comment How to hide / show the pull out drawer that is pre-loaded on some Samsung devices
at the current time I am working specifically with a Galaxy Tab 8" (SGH-I467M) with Android 4.1.2. In the past I've seen this same pull out menu thing on other higher end samsung phones/tablets as well, but I don't have a list of all models that I have seen it on.

comment Deleted all my contacts by mistake, but my contacts storage shows 328KB, can I recover them?
Is your device rooted? if so, look it the data/data/[contacts-package-name] for any files or db files that might hold your info. If they aren't there then it is very unlikely that they are recoverable, even though the app is reporting that it has some data.

comment How to install CyanogenMod on an MK808?
apparently you missed this part of my comment: "you are going to have to include more details about what you've already done and what the current state of your device is." on SO...

comment How can I fix internal storage growing for no reason?
things on computers do not happen "for no reason". Either you are installing more apps, or the apps you have are writing data/files to the internal storage over time which is filling it up.

comment Run Ubuntu from SD Card on Android Tablet
@mikethedj4 the thing is though android doesn't really have a concept of "boot from thumbdrive" the same way that normal PCs do. You'd likely have to heavily modify the android system to allow for that. Then after that you'd have to probably have an ubuntu thumbdrive that was meant specifically for running on an android device as opposed to whatever you have now which is probably meant for PCs. I'm afraid you are probably wading into un-explored territory here, so you are going to have to do a lot of the legwork yourself.

comment Run Ubuntu from SD Card on Android Tablet
I imagine what you want to do might be possible in theory. But it is going to FAR from a "plug in and go type concept". You will likely have a lot of very extensive work on your hands to even get this almost working

comment Unable to use Samsung Galaxy Y because of constant “Application has stopped Unexpectedly” messages
The app is supposed to cost money. You downloaded a free version that likely contained some sort of malware which is having adverse effects on your device. I would suggest trying to uninstall that application (and any others that you've gotten from untrustworthy sources) Are you able to get to the settings of your device? if so uninstall them from their. If not and you had debug mode turned on you could uninstall them adb. If you didn't however your only option may be to reset your device.

what was the last thing you did with your device before this started happening?

what was the last thing that happened on the device before this started? Did you install any apps? try to root it? try to install a rom?

comment Why does the new Chrome update want the permission to use my camera and audio recording?
right but at that point then it is also no longer a Google App, because it is Sony app, or Samsung app.

I don't really count the stock camera as a "Google app" since it is included in the AOSP and I can verify (by looking at its source) that it isn't doing anything malicious, unlike the rest of these google apps. Anywhoo thanks for the great answer =).
