comment Sound volume randomly changes
This issue seems to have been corrected by upgrading to a kernel and ROM which are more compatible with my hardware. Should I put that as an answer or should the question be closed?

Disable which app, exactly?

Fair enough. :)

comment Can receive but not send SMS
It's hard to imagine network issues are the cause since I can receive fine, and all other functions like phone and mail work. However, in any case, my service provider assured me the network was fine.

comment Can receive but not send SMS
Thanks for responding. I have asked about the ROM with the developer. I'm hoping there might be a solution that does not involve wiping the phone (again), unless I know for sure it will fix it. I've been playing a lot of feature-whack-a-mole recently, and I'd like to stop.

Asked about this on AskUbuntu as well.

comment What are my options for connecting my Android to Ubuntu?
@Izzy: Thank you for the suggestion. However, it seems that Tasker and SecureSettings have USB tether options, but no USB connection options.

comment What are my options for connecting my Android to Ubuntu?
Thanks for this tip, but if I connect by Airdroid, can I also sync my music files in Banshee? I'm looking to have all the functionality I had with USB mass storage previous to upgrading to 4.1.2.

Ended up getting an answer elsewhere, but 100 rep to you for at least trying to help. :)

comment How do I get my GPS working in Android 4.1 Jelly Bean?
Thank you for responding. I've tried a variety of GPS fix apps, and testing in wide open spaces, and I still get nothing. A friend of mine has Jelly Bean installed with no GPS issues, so I think GPS should work with this ROM, but so far, no joy.

There is no Google Search entry under the "Media Button Pressed" Category in Autostarts.

comment How do I turn off speech search in Jelly Bean?
I downloaded and installed Autostarts, and there is a "Media Button Pressed" entry, but I have discovered that it is not clicking the button once that activates Google Voice Search, it is holding down the button. Holding down the button should cause PowerAMP to advance forward one song. Unfortunately I can't find any entry for long presses on the headset button.

comment Sound volume randomly changes
Thank you for this suggestion. Unfortunately, I have tried this app for the last few hours and have discovered that it does not prevent the volume from making spontaneous changes.

comment How can I get my compass pointing the right direction?
@DenisGuy: Well, it worked for me, so you can't say that it will automatically soft-brick a phone. You can, however, say that's what it did to your phone. As always, one should be cautious with free advice gained from forums on the internet.

comment USB transfer speed ridiculously slow
@ce4: I updated the kernel and the ROM, and now my GPS doesn't work. So I guess I'm back to playing feature-whack-a-mole.

comment USB transfer speed ridiculously slow
@w3d The problem seems to be with both the internal memory and the MicroSD. I do not have a separate card reader for the microSD. The MicroSD is a 16GB class 4 card made by Sandisk.

comment How can I determine what is a normal USB transfer speed for my Android phone?
Thanks for this answer, as it made me realize my question could have been phrased better. I guess what I need to know is, how do I determine what class my SD cards are (the GS2 has two, internal and external) and then what should I expect from them. I've updated my question accordingly.

comment Can I replace the system font just for Japanese text?
So I can change the fonts on my phone by renaming and replacing the font files, without needing an app?

comment Can someone recommend a ROM and kernel for the Galaxy S2 that works fully?
@Sparx: It seems there's one more update for the S2 kernel, it's at 3.3.2 now. I've installed that. Also, one more question about the stock ROM. The whole reason I rooted and installed a custom ROM was to remove bloatware and release myself from my carrier's USB tethering charges. If I install the stock ROM, will that not include bloatware and also revert me back to the USB tethering system that was in place before?
