comment Is it possible to copy Android OS from my friend's device and install it on my tablet?
I doubt it, I think I've only seen Nandroid options on custom recoveries. But I've never really tried a stock recovery.

What about my questions four comments up, @user43961?

comment Mount USB OTG to specific destination folder
For mount to work, the mount point needs to exist and be a directory. The directory doesn't need to be empty, but if it's not, the existing contents will be hidden once the mount completes. So you need to do mkdir -p /sdcard to create the mount point (the -p prevents an error if it already exists), then do mount /dev/block/sdb /sdcard to mount the SD card. You may need to use /dev/block/sdb1 instead. Both the mkdir and mount commands need to run as root.

comment Tasker (switch off mobile data automatically) causing trouble under CyanogenMod
About what, @user43961? Exporting task / profile descriptions? For that, long-press a task or profile, then tap the '...' button in the action bar. Select Export, then Description to Clipboard. Then edit your question, and replace the XML with the description that was exported. Or was it something from my other comment that you were asking about?

comment Tasker (switch off mobile data automatically) causing trouble under CyanogenMod
A few more thoughts: Does Tasker deactivate the profile when the screen turns back on? If you explicitly execute a Tasker task to enable mobile data, does it help? If you connect to WiFi, then disconnect again, does it help?

comment Tasker (switch off mobile data automatically) causing trouble under CyanogenMod
Hmm, the XML descriptions are not as useful as they could be, due to the <code> tags. Could you replace them with the contents of Tasker's "Description to clipboard" export, please?

Which version of Cyanogen are you using? Are you using a stable, testing, or nightly version? Have you reported this problem to the Cyanogen developers?

comment Camera light flashes when the phone rings - how do I turn this off?
Thanks for this. Once I entered the Settings app (on my AT&T SGS3), I had to select the My Device tab. If that's true of you as well, you should edit the answer to include that step.
