comment Resize screen to display only on working part of semi-functional touchscreen
I was thinking that I didn't restart and you're right. Things changed then. Good stuff (:

comment Resize screen to display only on working part of semi-functional touchscreen
I wish I'd known about this when I smashed my other phones! After playing around with this I couldn't get my Nexus 6 keyboard to adjust in landscape. I'm missing the right side of my keyboard. It works fine in portrait so it should be a rare case when that's actually a disability. Luckily, I'm just screwing around and don't need this right now but it's cool to know. Way smart work! Thank you.

I attempt to use these settings but I get "Bad IP Address" error. I am attempting to use the Google DNS 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4

comment How to uninstall preinstalled apps on Gingerbread?
@andrew-t what was the point of that edit? This answer was correct at the time of publishing. What benefit did your edit add other than to boost your own numbers?

comment Is it possible to activate the “USB Tethering” Android setting from the command line?
This is the right answer for USBTethering. It won't work for WifiTethering though. The API hasn't been left open for that...

comment Using ADB shell, How I can disable hostspot / tethering on lollypop Nexus 5
This worked for my Nexus 6 on Android 5.0 to enable WifiTether but I had to add one more keyevent 20. Seems 5.0+ has borked the ability to enable WifiTether from a Tasker plugin or from Tasker itself. There's really no am start command that will start hotspot directly?

comment How do I resize the phone's screenshot size without using an image resizer?
The closest solution I've seen is streaming the framebuffer to the PC but I can't get the new adb shell exec-out to work for some reason.

comment Repeat notifications for users on-call?
Presumably the app you use to notify yourself has the ability to choose a ringtone. Just pick a ringtone that is long and noisy, or a loud annoying song, or better, a looping ringtone.

comment HTC One X switches to silent on its own?
Motorola has those SmartActions that do certain things at certain times of the day. Does HTC have something like that?

comment How can I get a random image on my lockscreen?
Not to mention he has already mentioned that he doesn't want to change the wallpaper; only the lock screen. It's not possible with the current applications on Google Play and his additional requirements peppered throughout the comments sections.

The only other way is to program something or root and get a ROM that supports what you want. Why the down-vote? I actually answered your actual question.

I would suggest trying to open them with the browser application using a file manager. Install a file manager that lets you choose "Run with..."

It works on both my OG Droid and my GNex. Please give it a try and let us know if it does not work for your phone somehow...

comment Disabling the 5 GhZ wifi band on the HTC One X
Can you please identify what you mean by "non-branded, non-rooted"...? Where/how did you get this phone? What network is it on? What possible version of this phone do you have that does not have these settings?

There are lots of background switchers on Google Play. Are they not switching the lock screen image too?

comment How can you prevent a Kindle Fire from auto-mounting on a Mac when you plug it in to USB?
I don't know if this is related to your issue but check this out. Basically you could have another app on the system that is enabling that option for you...?

"Risk" is an assessment that should be based on your needs. I'm not going to go into a diatribe on why you should root to gain control of the hardware you own. I would only say, <rant>"POWER TO THE PEOPLE!!!"</rant>
