"1) in HTC was - could push house and get out (eg the browser) to the desktop, see the information you need (say notes), then lower the top bar, select where necessary, a running program before (say browser) and go back. ie was multitasking, windows.
There is so I do not see - Drop down the left zakladochka quite inconvenient, because it does not make pluchaetsya other programs, such as the opera, and there is no program that has just launched. Besides constantly hanging in all the programs of the left reed personally pisses me off.
The question is, how do you still here implemented multitasking? How to switch between different windows? "

You can press the "home" and, therefore, roll up the application - browser. and multitasking is used in a different way a bit - you can simultaneously see the two open windows, such as the browser and e-mail. tapnuv on one of the open windows, you have the opportunity to work with him. NTS does not. removed the "reed" long press on the "back" button. as also called.

multitasking is used a little differently - you can simultaneously see the two open windows

This is called the "INDEX", instead of "multitasking".

Say no to the folder.thumbnails(Automatic creation of preview photos and videos)
or another way to save some space on the internal memory

prehistory, many letters
The reason for the writing of this text was the simple user curiosity. One look intophone settingsin sectionMemoryI saw large numbers in a rowOther files(About a 1 gigabyte occupied space). I was so interested in it that decided to deal with this situation, looked into this section and found that the first and the largest by volume flaunts folder.thumbnails, The volume of which amounted to about 350 mb, this despite the fact that my photocurrent (it is only about the pictures of the video will be discussed below) is just over 500 mb.
This folder, at least in 4.1.2, can be found atstorage / sdcard0 / DCIM /. Having the above address using a file manager (in my case it turned out to be a third party, with the option show hidden files) found in the folder heap file formatjpg, Each of which occupies a volume on the order of 10 to 100 kb. In this folder, create a (cached) preview images stored on your device, it's probably done for faster download lists with these same pictures. Moreover, the radically internal memory (storage / sdcard0 /), I also found another folder.thumbnailsA volume of about 100 mb, which were also the preview, only this time from video files (video library I have about 50 files totaling just over 1 gigabyte).
Having decided that I do not need it, he began to think how to solve the problem. Well, you think someone like a waste space in your phone's memory? Especially this megabytes, you can find a good use. Search using Google gave only one solution - to periodically delete the folder.thumbnailsBut it did not solve the problem completely and finally. Some time after cleaning and folders as the use of photo and video library, all returned to their seats. But then all the same naguglit way which decided my problem more than fully, properly and will be discussed below him.

Mini guide:

1. go to the file manager (any party-enabled show hidden files option) and open storage / sdcard0 / DCIM / (For firmware 4.3 the path is as follows - storage / emulated / 0 / DCIM ) And delete folder .thumbnails
- I usedES File Explorerfundamental importance not, use the one that you like
2. just create the same place file With name " .thumbnails "(Without the quotation marks), you can create it as a means of the same file manager on your phone and on your computer
- for the lazy I put already created file (unzip the file after downloading): Attached filefolder0.rar (70 bytes)
3. perform if you have firmware 4.1.2
come out of the DCIM folder instorage / sdcard0 /and do the step 1 and 2 tostorage / sdcard0 / .thumbnails
- to be sure empty file .thumbnails you can set permisheny "read only", but personally I have everything works fine without it
3. perform if you have firmware 4.3
- Go to the folder at the following address storage / emulated / 0 / .thumbnails and see inside the folder named versiyaproshivki _ versiyaandroida (You may have other letters, to drain the firmware for Russia, it looks like: a folder named I9300XXUGMK6 _ 4.3 )
- copy to clipboard the name of the folder, and then delete this folder, which is a version of the firmware and the android, the folder itself is not touched .thumbnails
- create a file on the site of a remote folder and assign it (file) remote contact folder name
4. We do restart the machine and everything is now previews for photos and videos will not be created on your device, respectively, and will not take up any additional space in the device
- a desire to return everything back, remove by.thumbnails-files (for firmware 4.3 will also need to delete the file from I9300XXUGMK6_4.3 .thumbnails folder), and then restart the machine, after a while the preview files will appear again
Attention : of inconvenience, I noticed only one thing - in video applications (Thumbnails tab) stopped working preview video animation (playing a few frames of video)

Mistress note:on the encrypted body was rutovany (CF Auto Root) Stock XXEMB5 (encryption is done on already rutovannom body), alter it to XXEMG4, rebooted - the password is accepted, made Root - password is not accepted. Alter "pureВ» XXEMB5 - password is still not adopted. I had to do wipe :(

I suppose that in front of shamanism with the upgrade / rutovaniem should decipher the body, and then encrypt it again. And so obviously we should not forget about backups;)
