comment A shell script to open files as root in an IDE?
Why not change the file permissions so that you don't require root? Or change the group to one you are a member of, and give their group +w permission?

comment Safari 8.0 on Yosemite doesn't kill closed tab processes, hogs memory
One of the reasons to keep a closed tab in memory is that if you accidentally close a tab, cmd-z will reopen it!

comment Why is the update button in “App Store” app opening the app instead of updating it?
Ah - I didn't read your question carefully .. the jailbreak throws a real wildcard into this.

I edited your response slightly to include the command if he's not running Yosemite. Hope you don't mind. :)

revised Should I delete pictures from Photo Stream or Camera Roll to free up space on my device?
changed "both places" to "either of the two places". Both places implies it only takes up more storage space if in both places, but not if in either. It's nitpicking on a commonly used (but incorrect) grammatical error.

comment What program should I use to transfer 20TB data across the network?
I love Carbon Copy Cloner, which is a nice GUI utility based on rsync. The developer forked rsync and made lots of improvements. I can't speak to the speed vs rsync and/or tar or whatever, but it's my go-to for any kind of data transfer, where I want to know without a doubt that my data's good once all is said and done. And if it's not, CCC will tell me.

comment Changing /etc/hosts not getting affected
Did you edit that file as root? Open the file up again to make sure your changes took hold. Making that edit works on my machine without having to flush anything.

comment Mac Mail - move IMAP message to Exchange folder
It may not answer the exact question you asked, but I use MigrationWiz - bittitan.com/products/#migrationwiz - when Mail gives me issues. In my professional experience, it's not worth the time it would take you to diagnose and troubleshoot the issue. Pay MigrationWiz like $12 and have them move what you want. Done. In the hours you'll save, you can make a lot more than that.
