comment Nexus 5 full disk encryption stuck 12 hours in?
I am sorry, I haven't tried enabling encryption. At any rate the 12 hours wait seems to be long. But as I said, what is the phone (beyond the stock image contents) determine how long it will take.

My suggestion is to plug the charger to the phone and wait with fingers crossed. At the worst case you may have to wipe off the phone and flash fresh factory image - there by loosing the data. The best way to do encryption is to have as low data as possible and then add your content slowly.

comment SMS not working on Moto G, 2nd gen
It doesn't seem so in my nephew's case twice. Moreover , if the sim is blocked, all network operations, including call, SMS, Internet will not work.

comment Boot loop after flashing android 6.0 marshmallow on nexus 5 follow up
Thanks @derobert I am aware. I just want to keep that user informed that having a non-English name makes things difficult (just a suggestion to consider). I guess the site allows only one @. And I found it super difficult when I had copy and paste using a mobile keyboard.

See this Link‌​, where it is explained why Nexus9 differs. By the way how could we address you, when we can't type your name?

comment how to have two applications play sound simultaneously?
There are many audio streams available in Android. As said in the dev doc audio streams are available for alarms, DTMF tones, music, notification, ring, system sound and voice call. If apps use different streams to play different sound then this possible and that is what most app exploit to support this feature.

comment How can I find the name of the Kernel and its version that is running in my phone?
My goodness - I feel kind of dump to miss the About phone page. In Marshmallow, it does show the kernel as it did in terminal emulator. +1

Cool. In terminal emulator running in Marshmallow, the command option -all did not work. It seems it is uname -a and that worked. Thanks. +1.
