comment Is it a good idea/useful to use two Anti-virus apps on Android?
No, just uploading them to virustotal.com would not be sufficient. Virus scanners can only check for known viruses, and new variants crop up all the time - hence all the updates AV software does. So a one time check on a sideloaded app will only tell you that, as of that date, there are no known viruses associated with that app.

I wouldn't say that installing apps from Play only guarantees a lack of malware (always check app permissions, at the very least!), but overall I'd agree with Karan that for the average user AV is totally unnecessary, and that having two different AV products on the same device is extremely undesirable regardless of OS as they will work at cross purposes and hugely slow down a device.

comment Root my android tablet
A stock ROM is still a ROM. Also, signing it shouldn't be necessary if it's installing an SU binary...

No argument there, but wasn't really within the scope of the question as it was put IMO.

comment where is the option to enable MTP?
@MatthewRead: It was a Note II, running 4.2.2. Doesn't seem to be working on Note III running 4.3. There's an app that checks the manifest on your phone for what dialcodes are available.

I never had the option that I could find; I had to dial *#7284# and then click the USB settings in the phone properties.

comment Reason SD cards come FAT formated instead of Fat32?
Excellent point, tho probably too technical for most users to grasp.

comment Is there a way to automatically put my Android phone into silent mode while recharging?
Tasker is pretty much the default answer for any question that follows the format "Is there a way to have my device automatically do X if condition Y?" :D

Not helpful, as if the OP doesn't know the correct carrier he can brick his phone by using a ROM with the wrong radio.

comment Block Adult Websites
The safest way to get a copy of ad-away is to install F-Droid and use that to obtain it. Or you can download the ad away APK directly from F-Droid, too. "On this site you’ll find a repository of FOSS apps, along with an Android client to perform installations and updates, and news, reviews and other features covering all things Android and software-freedom related. F-Droid is a non-profit organisation registered in England (no. 8420676)."
