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 does ICS deal with Menus on devices with physical buttons?
@BenBrocka: AFAIK, no, there isn't. You could argue that it's just like the <=2.3 implementation which gives no indication that there are menu options, but I thought it was a kind of stupid implementation then and I think it's a kind of stupid implementation now (as a dev it's freakin' annoying to make UIs that take advantage of the menu button because half the clients don't know it exists).

The "Google guys" have nothing to fix. See Matthew Read's answer regarding how the Market works with regards to non-approved devices.

Re-worded to a "How can I..." instead of "Help me find..."; added GB tag since it's version specific

comment why is my file system suddenly read only?
@epeleg: The CyanogenMod Wiki and XDA Wiki are both pretty good resources. They both have glossary pages of common terms related to Android devices and rooting and such, though not a great deal of depth. Honestly, Google might be your best bet for really detailed reading. I don't think I have any links offhand because I've simply come across most of them on Google at some point in the past...

comment Display data usage by application
It doesn't state that explicitly anywhere, and several of the answers track per app data usage.

comment why is my file system suddenly read only?
@epeleg: As far as I know it's basically synonymous with a locked bootloader. If you reboot to your bootloader and it doesn't say "Unlocked" anywhere then it's locked (adb reboot bootloader works for this, or reboot bootloader from an adb shell). The "Unlocked" text is usually pretty prominent on HTC devices near the top of the bootloader screen somewhere.
