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 Bypass account screen when updating defective apps
Again, this depends on the apps you're attempting to update, as well as how streamlined you want it to be. If the apps are distributed in one of the many alternative app stores then you could use those. If not, you'd have to find .apks and install them by hand, perhaps from the developer's website. If it's Google's apps you're trying to update, they're not distributed outside of Google Play (not by Google, anyway).

comment Bypass account screen when updating defective apps
If you want to use Google Play to update the apps, you have to sign in to a Google account. There's no way around that. Depending on the apps you're attempting to update, you could potentially get them from elsewhere.

comment 4G mobile data being used even when mobile data setting is off?
To be honest, it sounds like tech support simply had no idea what they were talking about, and this is an issue on your carrier's end. Given that, I don't know that there's really anything we could tell you that would be helpful. In my experience, data off == data off, and Android seems to think the same thing since you've noted that the phone does not show any data usage itself.

comment Can 32-bit apps compatible with a 64-bit Android OS?
That answer does not say that Android is 64-bit. It says that you need a 64-bit operating system to build Android.

comment Hangouts SMS: Keep same conversation when contact gets a new phone number
Without merging the contact info, I don't think this is doable. Hangouts doesn't have the ability to merge conversations in an ad-hoc manner or anything like that, it just organizes them by contact.

comment Wait for arm-v8 phones or not?
Generally speaking, newer processors will equal better processors, certainly. Whether or not it's worth the wait is entirely subjective, though. There's no concrete answer to this question as you've posed it. You could perhaps avail yourself of other, discussion-oriented resources.

I know that as of last year, Facebook login wasn't supported on Android. I don't know if that has changed since then.

comment How to store currently downloading file via mobile directly on PC
Is there a reason why you have to download it on your phone? What's the context of your situation? Starting there might make it easier for us to help you.

What results are you expecting once you run that script? What is it that you're ultimately trying to accomplish?

comment LG G2 ROOTING - battery drain and high data consumption
This doesn't seem like it has anything to do with anything, and it also looks painfully incorrect. Applications don't suddenly become more powerful because your device is rooted - they have to be specifically programmed to use root privileges. How does this answer the original question? What help will this be to the OP's current problem?

comment Does encryption, factory reset, encryption make a safer used phone?
If you're that worried - to the point that you're concerned about the bootloader being malicious - then a factory reset seems insufficient. It wouldn't have any effect on the boot partition or the system partition, both of which are modified when installing a custom ROM. If its feasible with the Moto X, reflashing the phone seems like the better course.

It would be useful if you could provide a link to the app you're recommending.

comment How to recover deleted photo album saved on internal memory - Note 3
Android doesn't have a "recycle bin". If you delete something it's deleted. The reason you can recover things is a function of how the filesystem performs the delete. It doesn't (generally) overwrite the data you've deleted, and instead simply marks the space as "available" and removes the pointer to the file. Thus, until the data is overwritten, it may be possible to recover it.

A link to a spec sheet that indicates this would probably be useful.
