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 can I purchase apps from the Amazon Appstore without downloading them?
@MatthewRead: I'd prefer an in-app way of doing it, too, but I still haven't found one :(

comment Kindle Fire: Google Services Framework
If you have adb configured on your computer you can use it to get a more detailed error message about why the install is failing (if you want). You'd do this by downloading the .apk file to your computer, plugging in your Kindle, and then running adb install /path/to/apk.

comment How can I root my Nexus S?
Is there anything in particular that dissuades you from simply using a custom recovery? The issue is that the /system partition is read-only by default in Android, and you need a way to get su and Superuser into /system/app. The easiest way is a custom recovery (no write restrictions) or flashing a boot image that gives you root access from adb.

comment Bind one directory to another
Do you have busybox installed? Have you tried mount -o bind /path/to/dir1 /path/to/dir2 (I think the busybox version supports that on Android)? You've tagged this with 4.0 ICS - are you running an unofficial build of ICS?

comment LG Optimus Slider for tethering Kindle Fire
Unfortunately, it's possible your device's wifi chip or kernel doesn't support broadcasting in infrastructure mode (but I don't know anything about the Optimus Slider, so I couldn't say myself). Is the Fire rooted, or do you plan on rooting it? Might be possible that way.

comment What are the features in the Cyanogen Mod that would make it worth the effort of rooting?
This is somewhat difficult to answer, in my opinion. We can list all of the features we like about CM, but if you don't find them compelling then they aren't very useful. What kinds of things would you consider "worth the effort"?

comment Stream music on Android to Desktop speakers
This really doesn't answer the question at all. Plugging in speakers is not the same as streaming music from Android to the PC so that it can output to the speakers.

comment How can I take a screenshot of a specific portion of my screen?
What do you mean by "screenshot by area"? Like taking a screenshot of a specific portion of the screen rather than the entire screen?
