One post per device for rooting questions is OK. Don't even make them CW, this only prevents people from answering because they don't get any reputation. They will automatically become CW when it's time for it.
I am very unlikely to root my device, so I don't really have any skin in this game.
That said, I do believe the current canonical question is getting too big and unwieldy.
I think "How do I root device X" or, even better, "How do I root Y class of devices" is a good way to go.
I'm concerned, though, about the different ways one can root a device. I would ...
I propose that that line should instead read:
Issues with Google Play (or any other app marketplace) from the point of view of a developer or publisher
This way, we get to make it clear that issues with Amazon App Store etc. (from the POV of a developer) are also off-topic.
I'm one of the mods beeshyams discussed this in chat, and I've also checked some of the questions using this tag. My results where exactly the same, as was my conclusion:
replace the power by one of power-on, power-options, charging, battery-life
if one of those "replacement tags" is already present, and none of the others fits, simply remove the power
Now that the changes have been live for a while I would tend to agree. The old tag should be a synonym for the new and the tag wiki should very obviously state that the thing wasn't always named that.
Up until April 2012, the Google Play Store was known as the Android Market and was changed as part of Google's initiative to consolidate their marketplace ...
Just thought I'd share some pics, as some of the others have done on Programmers.SE.
With my Android mini-figure:
The whole package, minus the blue StackExchange box:
I think the letter with Joel Spolky's sig (despite not addressed to me)
is the BEST PART of the package. PRICELESS.
THANK YOU StackEchange for these goodies!
5 points is the number of reputation points you receive when someone votes one of your questions up.
It's most likely that someone who had voted up one of your questions in the recent past has been banned or deleted, so their impact on the site has been automatically reversed.

As you've noticed, you need more reputation points to comment on someone else's post than to ask or answer a question. Why's that? Because new users don't always understand how this site is different from a web forum or a mailing list. They don't always realise that Stack Exchange sites have questions and answers, rather than threads and replies. Sometimes, ...
From your screenshot, it looks like you've hit the font selection problem with the Roboto font. If you install Roboto under Linux, then when a site or program asks for Roboto, it gets "Roboto Medium" (which is quite heavyweight) instead of "Roboto Regular" (which looks normal). This is a problem with how the weights are set in the font files.
This site has ...

In my opinion, this is a fine idea for a "cannonical question". It does come up rather regularly and the solution is generically the same regardless of the device (root, install a Google apps package and/or a ROM that includes them).
My suggestion would be for the question to be entitled something like "Google Play is not pre-installed on my device, is ...
It seems like you are unable to reach http://stack.imgur.com/ where most images on the SX network are hosted. The images work for me. Maybe your network admistrator has blocked imgur.com for some reason.
Tags and their structure are very site specific. A user should have some knowledge on how a site does organize its tags in order to create new one. That's one reason why you need 300 rep here and why it doesn't matter what position or how much rep you have on other sites.
Since circa 2011 all of the Stack Exchange sites have mobile-optimized versions.
If you're stuck in the desktop version you can force yourself into the mobile version by clicking the "mobile" link at the bottom of the page.
Conversely, if you find yourself in the mobile version and want to force your browser back to the desktop version, click the "full ...
This is done. I ended up performing the following steps:
Retagged a few questions that were using unlocking inappropriately
Renamed unlocking to sim-unlocking
Made sim-locked a synonym of sim-unlocking since it was only used a few times and always in the same context
Made screen-unlock and unlock-screen synonyms of lock-screen.
Well, this is part-and-parcel of Change the primary tag for certain Google renamed services? I suppose this question is probably a duplicate.
The app recently had its name changed to Google Play Music, so I think the tag for that should be google-play-music. The store/service is really google-play-store-music but do we really want questions tagged with ...
I went ahead and merged the older tags with their newer rebranded versions. Just to record exactly what was changed, I merged and synonymized the following:
market is now google-play-store
google-places is now google-plus-local
google-books is now google-play-books
google-music is now google-play-music
google-docs is now google-drive (reverted due to this ...
