comment adb restore progress
You can provide a filter spec to adb logcat so you just see the BackupManager output. I think "adb logcat BackupManager" will do it, but I can't find doc on the filter spec ..

comment How to manually disable or hide the system bar (menu bar) at the bottom of the screen?
Its a bug in the application, it should know the difference between the "soft" height and the physical height. (Or in Android, if you want to blame the platform for making bugs in applications like this possible). Sometimes rotating your device may work better (the layout bug may be less noticable, etc).

comment Are there any window managers for Android?
To copy text from an email (or most anywhere), you can long-press on it to get the copy/paste popup. A "window manager" in Android parlance is the "launcher".

Can you browse to websites via the browser successfully? Can you browse secure (https) sites via the browser? Can you use other Google account applications (like GMail)?

revised Trigger “mount as disk drive” (aka “USB Mass Storage” mode) from PC
Add "USB Mass Storage" to title and description. Add requirements to unmount and disconnect USB storage.

comment Trigger “mount as disk drive” (aka “USB Mass Storage” mode) from PC
Good to know this is possible, but having the phone go into "disk drive mode" every time the phone is plugged in won't work for me (and there is no way to revert back "charge only").

comment Backup and restore Android Settings and Application through ADB
As Alexander Lucas notes in his answer below, the bmgr command is a tool for developers to test app backup/restore. It does not actually copy any data off the device, so its unlikely to be useful.

comment Android Tablet - Download PDF and open it on browser
If your problem is specifically about having the android browser auto-open PDF files, I suggest changing the title of your question and adding tags about the browser and pdf. Its not really specific to the Galaxy Tab, though it is probably worth mentioning the Android version you're using.
