comment Sharepoint 2010 - feature not appearing in UI
Just be a little careful with the -Force parameter as it will stop errors from being shown if there are problems. However as long as you have a through check process after deployment to ensure that all servers have had the solution deployed successfully you should be ok.

comment Using custom SPRoleType
Read through the code a bit more and you'll see how to turn an SPFolder object into a SPListItem. the RootFolder is an example of an SPFolder object.

comment Showing a modal dialog using html option in SP2013 seems broken
Sorry this is just a javascript function which is called when the sp.ui.dialog.js is loaded. I use a function to initialise the page and setup various elements on the page. You could wrap your dialog code inside a function and then reference the replace ITSP.TaskForm.InitialisePage with your function.

Can you upload the CreateChildControls() function as this sounds like the cause.

comment EndPoint Failure
We get them on SharePoint 2010 as well. Basically the topology service checks to see which servers are available to run the service application, the endpoint failures is when one of the servers fails to respond.

comment EndPoint Failure
We see these on our farm quite often, particularly with BCS. What time of the day do they appear? Any activity like iis reset or app pool recycle around those times.

comment Cannot upload large (>50MB) files to document library
I would suggest looking for the word exception. What file type are these files? They aren't blocked are they?

So the lists are they using Lookup columns? Have you got any custom event receivers?

How many items are in the list that you are trying to add to. Does each item have security permissions set? How busy are your SQL Servers in terms of Disk I/O?
