comment Possible to flash factory ROMs on an encrypted phone using fastboot?
I believe fastboot will overwrite the entire partition, so it won't prompt you to decrypt the device because it's just going to blank out your data partition completely if you flash the userdata image. However, I also don't believe that you need to flash or wipe the data partition (if coming from a fully stock system), so if you flashed only the system and boot partitions it would be somewhat analogous to receiving a standard OTA update.

comment Reactivating a Phone Without Service
Verizon is a CDMA carrier, so there's not really a concept of "unlocking" most of their phones. Some also have GSM radios, but many do not (don't know about the OP's specifically).

comment I can't connect to a device that is connected with GPRS
I wouldn't be surprised if your network carrier is simply blocking the port. I'd imagine they probably don't want people hosting FTP servers on their network.

Don't think it's currently possible with YouTube: How to play a YouTube clip in background/minimised?

comment Move Google Now screen in 4.4 (KitKat)
@AlEverett: The one downside to that, unfortunately, is that the leftmost screen is always "home" on Google's launcher. So if you had 3 pages of apps/widgets, you could not make the home button take you to the middle one.
