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 Here is the fix I have for the “Check connection and try again” or “Play store has stopped” error for the Google Play Store APP
This site works in a question and answer format. Are you attempting to answer some other question that's already here on the site? Are you looking to share your own solution? You can answer your own question but it does need to be presented as a question and answer pair. For new users I believe there is an 8 hour waiting period before you can post an answer to your own question.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is an answer, not a question.

comment Accidently Android Window Files Deleted From Me On My Motorola Photon 4g
Please revise your question to make it understandable. Use full sentences and full stops to delineate them. Spell out words fully. Use proper formatting (not all italics, paragraphs to separate thoughts, proper capitalization).

comment How can I add UI support for Ethernet in Kitkat?
I don't think that really helps to clarify your question. What precisely are you trying to accomplish? What steps have you taken and where are you stuck? Be as specific as possible, because we need to understand the context of your situation, and one sentence alone is generally not sufficient.

comment What folder does cyanogenmod store its updates?
Accounts, apps, settings, etc. Pretty much anything that was not on your phone when you first unboxed it, except the operating system itself and (usually) media files. The tag wiki has a pretty good explanation. Also, based on the CMUpdater source, it looks like the update packages should be in /sdcard/cmupdater, but I cannot verify this myself (don't have CM).

comment How to unlock message on HTC EVO
If you could unlock it without the password, it wouldn't be particularly secure. If it's encrypting them (not unlikely) then it's probably impossible. Otherwise, is the device rooted?

comment Moto G 2014: Maximum upload speed?
"UMTS/HSPA+ up to 21 Mbps" -> Isn't that your answer? The network+radio have a theoretical limit of 21 Mbps, ergo...that's the limit.

What device and Android version? That might help narrow things down a bit if it's a system icon.

What screen filter enabler button? Where do you set the limit you're referring to? This answer makes no sense as written - you need to be much more specific.

comment Jelly Bean to Kitkat Lenovo 680
This seems like a good example of an XY problem to me. Xamarin doesn't inherently require you to have KitKat installed. You're probably targeting the wring version of Android, or using a KitKat specific feature. With more more detail regarding your actual problem it might be possible for someone to help, but currently it's impossible to know for certain what's causing your issue.

Apparently there's a Facebook page for this error, of all things.

comment Which versions of Android is Google developing security fixes for?
I think they generally only support the latest version. Backports, if any are done, would probably be the responsibility of OEMs. Google only officially supports Android on the Nexus devices, and if they don't get upgraded to a new Android release they get dropped.

If you have a question, please ask it separately, so that it can receive proper answers. You'll be more likely to even get an answer, as well.

comment SDCard permission issue
@Izzy: It must have just been specific to certain devices, then. It was a problem with the Motorola Xoom, and I feel like there were at least a couple other devices that behaved similarly, but I switched to Nexus devices (lacking SD card slots) quite some time ago.

comment SDCard permission issue
Have you checked the SD card's mount options? Could be flagged as read-only, but you may be able to remount it to fix it. I think external cards get mounted read-only by default on newer versions of Android (not sure about that, though, my device has no SD card slot).
