I am a CS student and involved in Project MAXS and aSmack. I previously worked on GTalkSMS, but retired there to spend more time working on MAXS.

My Android handset is a Nexus 4 running CyanogenMod. I also have a Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet, also running CyanogenMod and an Kindle Fire with, you guessed it already, Cyanogenmod1 :-)

1Kudos to hashcode for his great work regarding CyanogenMod on the Kindle Fire).

comment Customer claims our app trashed her phone
Then you should re-word the question simply asking if a App can cause this in order to prevent it getting closed.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is not written from a end-user perspective.

comment Push notifications for GTalk are delayed on Wifi after screen is off. Why and how can it be solved?
I don't think that it is the GCM clients fault, after all it does just listen/wait for new messages. It's more likely the result of an aggressive power consumption reduction policy of the device.

I gues there is no Problem to solve: It's likely a tradeoff between notification delay and power consumption. You can't have both.

comment mobile rooting problem
You jump pretty quick to the conclusion that rooting was the cause for the installation problems. The problem could be completely unrelated to rooting. See for example android.stackexchange.com/questions/27083/…

comment device remains on just until by usb cable is connected to pc
Please don't ask multiple questions in the same post. I suggest you move the part about the SIM card and post it as new question.

comment Using IP to ping a real Android device that is plugged by USB from computer
Just connecting your Android with a PC over USB does not establish IP connectivity. Reverse tethering would be one possibility to achieve that, but there are also other means.

How is it possible that you "lose 200 MB" by this accounting?

And if you transfer another tiny bit of data after the first another MB is charged?

comment How to find release date for Google Play apps?
I also don't understand why this isn't a duplicate. Because you consider "Relase Date" != "Initial Release Date"? If so, how do you define those two?

comment Why is the play store displaying same app twice under the My apps section
Just to clarify: You can't change the package name with an Play Store update. But you can release a new version of an App under a new/changed package name.

comment “adb devices” shows device as “unauthorized”. How can I fix this?
That question is not the same as the other. Swann's problem is that he didn't authorized the host to access the device via adb (as answered by keepcalm).

comment How to sync Google+ Instant Upload with Google Drive?
So it doesn't send the photo's to Google+ but "just" to Google Drive? I see how some people may prefer that, but for me it seems to make little to no difference if I upload my personal photos to one or another USA-based cloud provider.

comment How to monitor child's SMS messages?
"…you have the right to monitor his SMS messages." Just wanted to clarify that this is not true in Germany (and in other parts of Europe and likely other countries with a sane privacy law). A child could sue you if you do so without its consent

comment Can the RECEIVE_SMS permission be used to intercept SMS messages?
"Yes it can". But only on Android 4.3 and lower. Since 4.4 SMS_RECEIVED is a non abortable Intent. Please add that important fact. See also stackoverflow.com/questions/20021492/…
