comment How to make use of the entire screen area on Android 4.1 in full-screen mode?
I guess most people prefer an always-on-screen button to a hardware return button, though I will probably never understand why...

comment How does rooting work?
I think this misses one important thing: the su is itself not magic at all, the only magic about it is that the OS treats it specially. All it has to do is return "OK" or "Not OK" when asked by the OS whether to allow a particular application to elevate permissions. If it's missing, or always returns "Not OK" then normal apps can never get root. So rooting is basically the process of placing an su binary that can sometimes return "OK", into the protected location on a system which isn't supposed to allow this to be done.

See also Security risks of rooting Android, which is marked as a duplicate of this, but actually isn't.

comment In my Samsung Galaxy S under Settings - Status - Phone number is says 'unknown': Why?
There is no "Own numbers" anywhere in the Contacts app, at least not on a stock Galaxy S4 Mini.

comment How do I change the default phone number?
This happens when you take your old number to a new provider's SIM. The SIM still has the provider's original number on it.
