comment How to record and replay macros in Android?
How to implement it effectively? The way I can currently imagine is just ptrace'ing Android's system process, temporarily overriding data coming from /dev/input/event* file descriptors.

comment Why battery “sags” on my device and how to fix/workaround it?
No, and it's probably tricky to get a smartphone battery. This is my sole smartphone I'm using for more than 2 years and the issue is not new.

comment Where to find description of all “/system/bin/service” calls?
Is there some thing that is a bit more high level than service call, yet still allows many things to be done from superuser console?

comment How to simulate cell signal loss?
It is already stated in question that if I manually disable the networking, programs receive "there is no network anymore"/"there is network again" messages and it works well. I want to simulate poor networking when the device thinks it's still connected, but in fact the connection is lost for some time.

comment How to simulate cell signal loss?
I look for software solutions primarily. Like type a command in a root console to stop connectivity (without Android directly knowing I'm stopping it), then a command to re-enabled it.

comment How to simulate cell signal loss?
As I stated in question, usually just wrapping the phone in foil does the trick. (Actually also wrapping myself around the phone in an accurate way can reduce the weak signal to "No Signal").

comment How to keep CPU off when charging?
1. Android should not be too aware of this program, and it does not touch /sys/power/wake_lock; 2. Even without the program I notice that when the charger is nominally connected, but not charging (e.g. there's only about 3V instead of 5V), it discharges faster (approximately the same rate as if some app holds CPU wakelock).
