comment Is there a way to enable the ringer/notification sounds only when using headphones?
Deleted my answer, as the SoundAbout app was actually doing something else (rerouting all audio to headphones) than what I thought it was doing (unmuting on headphone insert).

comment Block all sounds going out through speaker when headphone connected
Wonderful! Still the only usable solution in 2015 (without a need for custom ROMs); thank you, thank you.

comment How can I remove trusted CAs on Android?
Good to know if you're on a recent Android version, thanks. (I understand this is a feature introduced in 5.0, correct?)

comment How can I get to recovery without Volume Up hardware button?
This seems related, but I was fortunate enough that the "normal" mode still worked: android.stackexchange.com/questions/36552/…

(I have spent most of a day looking for this; better put it here, so it doesn't go to waste)

comment If I root my Asus Transformer, will I still get and install the manufacture updates?
@Dan: Custom bootloader and/or recovery are the usual culprits of stopped updates.

comment Hangouts: How to make the phone dialer default (instead of the hangouts dialer)?
Clear the default app for the dialer activity - see android.stackexchange.com/questions/42057/… - where "[bound app]" is "Hangouts"

comment Why do we need a rooted phone to capture screenshots?
Note that since approximately Android 4.0, it is possible to take a screenshot by holding Volume Down+Power buttons; this is out-of-the-box functionality, no apps required (noted here for posterity and search engines)

comment Is there a way to completely disable the dialer including emergency calls to make an old phone a “tablet”?
It will try the current connected network first; let me see if I can find some reference...

@landroni: The surest way to place an emergency call from a cellphone is to use one without a SIM card inserted - without the SIM card, the phone will request access to the strongest signal available, whereas a phone with a SIM card will try to use the SIM card carrier's network first.

@Webs: Yeah, because data leaks can never ever ever happen. Riiiiiiight.

comment 2G versus 3G: Does it really save battery?
Note: the "hopper" scenario also applies if you travel by underground - most cities have station coverage, but not in tunnels, inducing the power-intensive signal search many times in the space of a few minutes. In such cases, disabling mobile data altogether while travelling by underground has dramatically improved battery life on my devices.
