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 upgrade kitkat or lolipop in LG F160 K [Korean Mobiles]
The answer in that question is not specific to any region. It's intentionally written to be as generic as possible. Is there something in particular that leads you to believe that your phone being Korean will have a meaningful impact?

comment Xposed Framework modules not downloading
In addition to knowing what device your'e using: are you getting an error? If so, what does it say? If not, what specifically happens when you try to download a module?

comment What factors should I consider for selecting a Distribution Platform?
Unfortunately, you'll want to look at resources outside this site for your question, then. Android Enthusiasts is intended for questions related to using Android. Development and publishing questions are not within our scope.

comment What factors should I consider for selecting a Distribution Platform?
I'm sorry, but I think we're going to need you to be much more specific. You're looking at distribution platforms for what, exactly? Purchasing apps? Other content? What are your concerns?

comment Icon on an already displayed app
If you're looking to write an app that does this, then you'll need to look for resources outside this site. Android Enthusiasts is for questions related to using Android, not developing for it.

comment question about problems with. lg phone
If you'd like your questions to be taken seriously, please don't fill them with random garbage or commentary. I would suggest looking over How do I ask a good question? and How to ask Android Questions the Smart Way

The original Kindle Fire does not have a volume button.

comment Delete Gmail emails older than X days
This doesn't seem like it's connected to Android, particularly since you sound like you're potentially looking to write a cron job on a server to do it for you. Perhaps you could edit your question to clarify if this indeed an Android-related issue you're facing.

comment No previous song button in Lollipop?
@Derek: I haven't seen that myself. The keypad only appears if I swipe up. I haven't tried when the music controls were the only notification, though, because I always have Tasker and BitTorrent Sync running (as in my screenshots above). Sounds like a possible bug to me as well.

comment Installing problem on my android
We're going to need more specifics to help you. How are you trying to install them? Are you getting an error message, and if so, what does it say? Please edit your question and provide us with as much context as possible. We're complete strangers to your situation: we need as much information as you can give us.

comment why wont my nexus 10 hold a charge?
It could be that your battery or some other piece of hardware has died, unfortunately. Have you tried different chargers or cables just to rule that out? It sounds like it would likely not help, but may be worth doing if you can.

comment Problems in referencing resources
@MikeM: Generally we just try not to migrate questions that need work, because that creates a situation where the question could end up getting closed on the other site. An alternative would be for the OP to edit this question with some specifics, and then have it migrated. Had that happened before I saw this then I would have migrated it, but at this point it'll be faster for the OP to just repost (since editing this one will mean it has to wait here until it gets migrated by a mod/other users; reposting can be done at their convenience).

comment Problems in referencing resources
I would recommend simply posting a new, more detailed question on Stack Overflow, if you decide to go that route. As noted, they're almost certainly going to need to see some specifics (like your code) in order to give you adequate help. Specific error messages would likely be useful as well.

comment Busybox Commands in Android Application
It sounds like you're writing an app, but...this is pretty vague. If you are looking for development help, then you'll want to look at resources outside this site. Android Enthusiasts is for questions related to using Android, not developing for it. If that's not your intent here, then please edit your question to provide some additional clarity and context. One sentence is rarely enough to explain your situation so that someone on the outside can help you.

You would likely be best served by contacting the developer of the app.

comment Lollipop update on Nexus 4?
The launcher (or, more generically, the currently focused app) definitely influences this. Nova launcher lets you toggle the transparency on and off, for example. I would wager your launcher is the culprit here. Especially since your second example is the design of the folders, which is absolutely controlled by the launcher.

The answers in Downgrading Nexus 7 Android 4.4.2 to 4.2 would apply to your situation as well.

comment How to view email in “Combined View” in 5.0 Lollipop
The Gmail app has never supported this in the past, so I would wager that there is no way to do what you're looking for (aside from using a different mail client).

comment Trying to set up SSH with shared key, but the server is not recognizing the device's key
Are you sure it's even looking at the /data/.ssh directory for the key? That seems like kind of an odd place for it to go since it's not a directory user processes could access without root. Are you basing this setup on some sort of instructions or documentation? Maybe it would help if we could see the steps you're trying to follow in their full context.
