comment How can I know whether the TWRP has been installed in “read only” mode?
:-z quite confusing. I am pretty sure I downloaded the factory image of version 6.0.1 and even used stock kernel to root.

comment How can I know whether the TWRP has been installed in “read only” mode?
Thanks @BoLawson for the trick. I tried to copy the .twrps file to /system and it was successful. Probably my memory should be wrong. BTW, what part of the .twrps file says I have LRX22G - just curious to know.

comment Is it possible to enable 4G/LTE band 40 in Nexus 5 D820?
Sure I agree with you to avoid rotten links issue. However this means just reproducing the text that is explained in the XDA link. Still that does not going to completely help because that XDA page has few attachments without which this will not work.

Consider downloading the factory image and flash manually by connecting through a PC.

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.

comment Nexus 5 full disk encryption stuck 12 hours in?
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

Yeah, sorry to leave you to find it yourself. It took me more than five minutes to cross the marshmallow boot animation.

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.

comment Headphone jack dusty or broken?
@Antoinella, while doing the above try to see whether an headphone without mic or control buttons work normally. I suspect the button in the headphone with which one can pause or skip track is posing you trouble - in case your troublesome headphone has one.

comment How to play a YouTube clip in background/minimised?
Seems to be a very good idea and +1 from me to make me discover mx players okay from network stream feature. Unfortunately, when tried few video [URLs ](youtu.be/m3KdpzL3Hkk) all I get is an error can't play this link . Does it work for YouTube and if so I have a doubt that it will violate YouTube's terms and conditions.

+1 for the new pipe! It is a shame that Android version of vlc player does not open the media from the network stream like it's desktop counterpart does.

Have you heard of Hacker's Keyboard? This might not help if your aim is to learn to map and not its end result.

comment How do I use an external microphone with my Galaxy Nexus?
No I am not. That's why I start with asking the viewer by testing their pin connection themselves and ended with the sentence as in the answer.
