I have a HTC Hero and new to all this android stuff! i have this program i can see in the application managment bit called AddProgramActivity i think its responsibly for putting annoying little ads at the bottom of the screen when certain apps run. I also have an app called IM. If i go into the manage application bit and expand each app there is no option to uninstall or remove! how to i get rid of them?
How do I completely remove rather than rename unwanted apps? Specifically, what commands have to be entered into the shell? And where can I find a listing of the apps in rom? I am rooted and have some knowledge of adb and the android sdk. here are just a number of the apps I never will use, so I would prefer to free up memory.
I am looking for a bit of info and/or a tut on how to remove apps with the rooted 2.1 for the Eris ( BTW thanks to all the dev's for their hard work). I have installed the rooted 2.1 with out a hitch. I have been looking around to find out how to uninstall a few of the apps (amazon, stocks, tweet) and found people that say to use SDK's ADB or terminal. I understand what the terminal is and the SDK that google offers is but not the ADB. I also understand that there is a chance to brick by removing the wrong things. So I don't want to just make a careless mistake.
U mainly wanted to root to remove the unwanted apps preinstalled on my phone because I was tired of running out of space. I rooted successfully via Odin. downloaded root installer and removed the unwanted apps. Then I started playing around with other apps. But now when I try to use any of them I get "app was denied super user permission" and telling me I need to be rooted. I tried factory reset but that didn't work. In fact, I now can't even use app uninstaller to remove those apps.
I was wondering if there is a way without having to ROOT the phone to remove those unwanted ads in apps that you always see? I know there are programs out there for this job, but all of them require your phone to be rooted.
I rooted my phone and my husbands phone about 2 months ago. We LOVE it.. now I'm having a major blonde (no offense) moment.. I can't figure out how to remove apps we don't want..how to remove apps thru command prompt and nothing I try seems to make it communicate it w/the phone..maybe there's an app I can download instead?
I was good with the leak, but then i experienced a few hardware problems and had to get a replacement eris. Well, now i am rooting this beasty, tryin to overclock it. The guides have been helpful and clear on getting to this point, but now i am stuck of the multiple roms out there, very few of them actually list what's available. I wanted as few as possible of the stock apps (peep, amazon, footprints, all that garbage gone), overclock, 5-7 screens, and for it to do my taxes, change my timing belt, and book flights for me all at once, but can't seem to find out. Right now i've got home, senseui, and nexus launcher loaded up on here, using senseui cause that's what i am used to. Nexus launcher seems to be well a resource hog that this phone cant handle without overclocking.
I am currently running ICS 4.0.4 on my motorola razr and I downloaded the app "power toggles" from google play [URL] ....
The one thing that annoys me the most is that I made the notification icon transparent but the problem is that there is a huge space left when for example receiving messages or downloading apps. I am wondering, is there a way to remove that annoying space? I know in JB there is a option for removing notifications as default but I am currently running ICS...
I read about some other people having the same problem here -> [URL] .....
Several apps on my epic are always on. After I end them using atk if I wait say 10 minutes they start again. Not all are bloatware some are apps I use from time to time but I don't want them to run all the time.
New to Android. I always used a app called Magicall on my WM device. I want to be able to block specific contacts, unknown number or anonymous numbers and also specific contacts for SMS. I can see I have the option to send a contact direct to voicemail but don't have the same facility for unknown/anonymous callers and nothing to block SMS. Any recommendations for an app that works with 2.1? (I'm using a HTC Desire)
Is there a way to delete unwanted apps on a stock phone? I got an update last week and it came with some stupid trial games that I don't want. When I go into app management to remove it, there is no unistall option. I hate how we are forced to keep some apps.
I have an Acer A100 tablet that I've upgraded to ICS (the upgrade went very smoothly, by the way). But under both ICS and the original Honeycomb, the Android OS has an annoying habit of starting a bunch of apps automatically. Facebook, Google Maps, media players and a whole host of apps that I do NOT want to start all by themselves. I found an "Advanced Task Manager" that will check every 5 minutes and kill unwanted apps automatically. But every time I check it there are still half a dozen apps running in the background that I don't want.
If it were just one or two apps, I would simply uninstall them. But it seems like half the factory apps are intent on restarting themselves no matter how many times they're turned off. My Acer has a very small battery, and I suspect I'd get much better battery life if it would only run the apps that I start manually.
Other than email and the system update manager, I really don't want any apps running in the background. And when I turn an app off, I want it to stay off until I restart it. Is there a way to edit the list of programs that start automatically? Do they all have to be disabled individually? I've checked a few of the apps, and don't see any way to disable the "automatic log-in", "check for new data" or whatever each program might call it's annoying insistence on starting whenever it wants to.
My DroidX has several pieces of bloatware from Verizon or Motorola. I don't mind giving up a little Ram space for them, but many are running all of the time. After you kill them they come back to life. Why does Music, Maps, SkypeMobile, CityId etc. need to run when I haven't even started them? I "assume" that they are just waiting until the end of a time period (an hour I hope rather than a second) to check if the need to "call home". If they are doing much they are eating battery time which isn't as good as I would like. I realize that I would have to root my Droid to remove the apps. Is there an easier ways to keep them from running?
Is there a way to remove apps from My Android Apps list, on Android Market / Google Play? I have a few hundred in my list and a few dozen of those are apps I plan to never install again. I'd like to remove them from my list in the Market/Play. I've already uninstalled them from my phone.
How do you remove web ads showing on your apps? I believe the web ad was showing up because I have downloaded another apps which I allowed web ad to be shown on my other apps but I'm not really sure. how do you also know if the app you are downloading will not have any web ad on it?
I have a general idea of how to do it but would like some instuctions. If im correct first u download astro then use emulator but without guide i wont do it so if anyone can give me instruction i have a droid x.
Is it possible to remove an application programatically? If so, shall I look at the package manager for that or is there an example some place? When a package is installed, I believe there is a broadcast message to the system saying that. Is it possible to capture that broadcast message?
I installed some apps via my root and they are bogging down my phone so I want to get rid of them but I'm not sure how to do so. I'm not talking about "pre-installed" apps. Ive pretty much avoided my poor droid like a plague because of this so..
