It turns out I have (had) two separate issues: I had a bum battery. No combination of cable/charger would charge it correctly. I had the battery replaced and noticed that it was still not charging correctly and so posted the question. I should have done more research. This is what I had observed when using the stock charger as mentioned in the question. ...

Yes, as indicated on the user manual. I'm currently using a Sandisk Class 4 32GB formatted with exFAT, works just fine. Stock ROM, unrooted.

For the drain caused by google play services, install the Xposed framework and the module Wakelock Terminator. The free version lets you block 1 app, and that's all you need. Open up Wakelock Terminator, choose to block Google Play services, and filter it with the following: NlpCollectorWakeLock NlpWakeLock CheckinService NetworkLocationLocator. Of course, ...

It is very much possible that support for API level 15 or below has been dropped for all the current Chrome builds of version 47.0.2526.83 or perhaps it has been so for the last few versions as well. I updated my Chrome app in Jelly Bean 4.2.1 and I can see that the minimum API level it requires is 16 and is targeted at 23. Android versions corresponding to ...

The Galaxy Tab 10.1 original charger provides 2A. But providing 2A is not all it takes to make your tablet happy. In order to use the 2A, the tablet needs to recognize the charger as a charger and not a computer's USB port. The tablet is not allowed to draw more than 0.5A from a USB port. So if the tablet thinks it is connected to a real USB port, it ...

A little bit more information would have been nice e.g. charger models. Anyway since the phone charger isn't charging your tablet i suspect that the phone charger does not deliver enough power. The Samsung adaptive charger i know of does support up to 2A although the website only list support for new samsung smartphones. I guess it will not recognise your ...

According to this post on StackOverflow the storage should be separated. Each user gets their own space on the emulated storage which other users cannot access to read or write (assuming the device is not rooted, in which case all of this goes out the window...). As far as installed apps are concerned, the fact that there are several installations of it on ...

I assume you're on TouchWiz and are trying to take a screenshot by using Vol - and Power. On TouchWiz it's Home + Power.

This might or might not work. Insert an SD Card, preferably more than 4GB. Boot into android stock recovery. Power + Home + Vol. Up Scroll down to backup internal data. Remove the SD card. Go through the steps of unlocking the boot loader but don't flash a custom recovery yet. Reboot into recovery(stock) after unlocking the boot loader. Restore user ...

There are custom recoveries for your device but they are only available for the Wi-Fi only Galaxy Tab 4 10.1- TWRP (SM-T530), odin/heimdall flash CWM (SM-T530), odin/heimdall flash **

I had a similiar problem. It started when I accidentally played mp3 through Google Music ("Muzyka Play" in Polish version). The fix was to clear any cache and data in settings, app manager Google music ("Muzyka Google Play"). Now it stays quiet again and I'm not gonna use it :)

There is only one possible way to restore your device after unmounting system and/or bricking it. And that is to flash (via Odin) the original stock firmware in a file named : PDA_HC31_EG01Ba_AP352081user_CP1033580_LTE20110704_0708.tar Nothing else will work. Only this one file will be able to unbrick this device. The procedure is quite easy. On the ...

I wrote a little script to do this for me that deletes files from the device after pulling: #!/bin/sh cleanup() { [[ -n "$dest" ]] && cd "$OLDPWD" && rmdir --ignore-fail-on-non-empty "$dest" } trap cleanup EXIT DIRS=( /storage/emulated/0/DCIM/Camera /storage/emulated/0/Pictures/Office\ Lens ) dest=$(mktemp -d -p .) && cd $...
