comment Headphone Volume buttons do not work
As I say @Frantumn you have a different issue, yours is nothing to do with this issue.

comment My Gmail is signed in through the app on ex-boyfriend's phone
@Le3ky Nope not even vaguely regularly. When I changed my google password, an old phone of mine kept working for over a year before its auth tokens expired and it finally got around to asking for a password.

comment Headphone Volume buttons do not work
@Frantumn Almost certainly a different issue. The volume buttons require a mic signal from a headset jack, the Nexus 7 (2012) only has a headphone jack (TRS). It would be crazy for the Nexus 5 not to have a headset jack (TRRS) as it's a phone.

comment Is there a way use an RDP to configure a continuous offset from GPS calculations?
@MananMerevikSharma Could I suggest that you add your suggestion as an answer. As long as you mention "This will only work if rooted" at the top, it would help distinguish it from answers which don't require root.

In the UK we have trig points all around the country at well known and well characterised locations. It would be really nice to be able to go to one of these, and tell your phone 'I am at this trig point right now, please use this information to correct your position'.

comment Problems accessing message logs on Jelly Bean with aLogcat
That's why I prefixed that para with For details of how to get adb up and running without the full Android SDK install. I prefer self contained answers, so I didn't want to remove my procedure, but I did want to highlight your as an alternative.

Thanks @Izzy, I've updated my answer to reference your answer and make that section more generic.

comment Problems accessing message logs on Jelly Bean with aLogcat
@Flow - Yeah, and the whole point of log messages is that you can use them to find out what's going on. JB makes an app like aLogcat pretty pointless, since it can now only access log messages it has created itself!

@RichardBorcsik - You seemed to miss the point that I was speaking in general. Since I shouldn't have been doing this anyway, I've deleted my comments.

comment How can I get my MK808 mini Android PC to output to my TV?
My MK802 defaults to 720p60 (an unusual choice) when it first starts up, so you may want to check that your TV supports whatever mode your MK808 defaults to. How long have you waited for it to boot? If you are expecting instant-on you may be disappointed. *8')

comment HTC Desire - ran out of storage - can't interpret solutions offered - need help!
Welcome to Stack Exchange Tlwidmer. Generally speaking it's better to improve existing questions and answers rather than duplicate them, so if you don't understand the answers over at How can I free up more space on my Android (2.2 Froyo) phone? then please feel free ask questions about specific things you have a problem with. When you get to 50 reputation you will be able to add comments to request clarification.

comment How to use camera without unlocking phone? (Jelly Bean on S3)
@roxan - The other question was talking about 2.2 and the answers were saying things like this should be fixed in ICS, while this question is specifically about jelly-bean, so unless there is a specific policy on cross-version duplicates (I've just checked on meta and can't find one) I don't think this is an exact duplicate.

comment Why is Android System always keeping my phone awake?
@ZongLi - By the way, it is usually the case that if an answer is good enough to be accepted (the tick) then it should be good enough to deserve an up vote (This answer is useful), so you might want to click on the up arrow whenever you click on the tick, so people feel appreciated. *8')

comment Is it possible to use an Android phone as network disk, so I can browse it on my TV?
@spambas - On Stack exchange sites is is better to edit your question with information requested by comments. That way the question stands on its own and the comments can be tidied (deleted) later on, hence my suggested edit.

Ah, it took me a while to understand how this answer related to the question, but I see what you are suggesting. Can you think of any way of doing this without root?

comment 32gig sd card corrupt
You may also want to check that your memory card isn't a fake, which can also lead to what appears to be corruption.

No problem, stack exchange sites take a little getting used to if you are only familiar with web forum culture, so I don't mind helping people get started.

Incidentally, on stack exchange it is usually better to comment on a question rather than add an answer which doesn't actually answer the question.

comment How can I change the user agent string sent by Chrome on my Nexus 7?
I tried using Phoney with Firefox, but although the iPlayer website shows pages without either install flash or use external app messages, it still won't play the streams, hence looking for a solution for Chrome.

Thanks Māris, I'll try that when I get home.
