Android-wise I was an early adopter, pre-ordering a G1 back in 2007. I had it rooted and running custom ROMs before it was a one-click deal and before NANDRIOD backups were easy to do! It's definitely less scary these days.

Having since had HTC Sense and Samsung Touchwhiz skinned devices, and always ending up rooting them to run stock / Cyanogenmod ROMs, I've decided to go all Nexus and currently have a Nexus 4 & Nexus 7.

comment Why are files sent through Gmail renamed?
I've only noticed this with failed/partial downloads (from anywhere) - when I've had particular problems with something I've ended up with 'downloadfile', 'downloadfile-1', 'downloadfile-2', etc. Otherwise, I'm sure my downloaded files keep the original filenames.

comment Can I emulate a Bluetooth keyboard with my Android device?
A good comment on there today ;) Current lack of Windows support will be a problem for most, but this is the one to watch.

Yep, looks that way :/ My other answer appears to be the best chance of getting this working - will try and give it a go tonight.

Yes, I think you should edit the question for a specific device as methods vary significantly between devices.
