An Android, iOS and C# developer by day and a Linux enthusiast by night. I also enjoy web development (mostly Python), video games, chess, soccer, and voiding warranties.

I currently own a Nexus 5, a Nexus 10, and a Nook HD. I generally run a slightly self-modified version of CyanogenMod on my Nexus devices.

comment How to find out the UID of a given file/folder?
@Francesco: Android doesn't really have a concept of a "username" in the same sense that a typical Linux distro does. If you open a terminal emulator it will run within it's own UID (each app has a user id). If you log in with adb shell I think the default is the "system" user. You can't switch to the root user by default, but most devices have some method of gaining root access (How do I root my device? is a good starting point, but if you have specific questions about your device you're more than welcome to post them on this site).

comment Would it be possible to use the SD card as the root filesystem
The Nook Color/Tablet can both do this, and I've seen other Linux distros (Debian, Ubuntu) boot from the SD card on the Xoom. Don't know if anyone's ever tried it on the Wildfire S, although you could look into something like Boot Manager. I'm not sure if there's a device-agnostic solution other than that (which is a little finicky).
