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 No USB storage mode for Asus MeMo Pad 7 to do Android development
Why do you need mass storage mode for development? That's what USB debugging mode is for. The two are not related, and most newer devices don't support UMS anymore (see, e.g. How can I use my Galaxy Nexus as an external USB storage drive?)

What does this mean? How would you use that path? Some explanation would be nice; it's not really clear how this answer would be useful.

The question doesn't mention Firefox anywhere. Why would this be the solution?

comment How do I project the screen of my Android phone for a presentation?
This doesn't seem like it would solve the OP's problem. TeamViewer will let you control your PC from an Android device, but not vice versa. In order to use the PC to project your phone's screen you'd need the opposite (a way to view and control Android from the PC).

comment How to enter USB debugging mode in Cyanogenmod
For your first point: HTC may put the developer options somewhere different, but they are hidden by default in vanilla Android builds as of 4.2. So that applies to any Nexus device, or any device with an unmodified version of Android (whereas HTC heavily modifies it). Second point: Mass storage is very different than debug mode, and mass storage mode was replaced by MTP around Android 3.0. If you're using Linux then the issue may be on the PC's side, because many distributions still have difficulty with MTP. Which are you needing: debug mode, or a way to transfer files?

Are the developer options simply hidden? Where are the developer options in Android 4.2?

comment Do all devices (that can connect to PC) power up when connected to PC?
The OP sounds like he's describing a situation where the device literally boots into Android when plugged in. Your answer seems to be referring to something different and much lower-level in the hardware. Perhaps instead of being passive-aggressive when asked for more detail/sources you could, y'know, provide a more thorough explanation of your answer. Then everybody wins, no?

Looks like that link is dead. Are you aware of an alternate source for the app?

comment How to display mobile data usage for whole month and not last 7 days?
@Boris_yo: You cannot. You'd have to find a custom ROM that implemented that feature, or perhaps an Xposed module or something. I'm not aware of anything that exists for that purpose. For whatever reason, the Android devs decided to make it show the last 7 days when the screen first appears, and that's not configurable.

comment what is the requirements to charge android tab via USB cable?
It's probably not getting enough amperage. Lots of tablets won't charge via a computer's USB port because the USB 2.0 spec only provides 500 mA of output. Many tablets require more than that. If that's the case for your tablet, then it's probably not possible.

comment How long does Galaxy S2 last with the latest android before it fails to work properly?
This seems like it would be almost impossible to quantify. There are lots and lots of variables that will affect how long a device lasts, such as the amount of time you spend using it, what you're using it for specifically, the typical environment you're using it in, etc. What is the problem you're trying to solve, exactly? What kind of information are you looking for?

comment Third Part Device: Get 4G on the “Uncarrier” via Root Permissions
GSM Arena shows two variants (D610a and D610i), Phone Arena only has one. None supports T-Mobile's main 4G frequency bands (AWS), though the D610a might be able to get on their older (slower) PCS bands if they are in-use in your area. The answer is probably "no" either way, though, since T-Mobile has been refarming the PCS for other things, AFAIK.

You can use WiFi in airplane mode: How do you turn off all cellular communication but leave things like bluetooth and wifi enabled?

comment Droid Mini in France with local SIM card?
I think usually you do have to ask Verizon to unlock the phone for international carriers before it will accept the SIM, but I'm not positive on that. Might be worth calling them, though.

comment How do I remove gapps from CyanogenMod
Formatting the system partition before re-installing would probably do it. I think CM is automatically backing up and restoring Gapps, the idea being that it makes updates easier for people who use Gapps. Since they get installed to the system partition, the factory reset won't delete them.
