Android :: Programmatically Uninstall A Package In Droid?May 21, 2009
Can a package uninstall itself? Can a package uninstall another package if they share the same userId and signature?
Can a package uninstall itself? Can a package uninstall another package if they share the same userId and signature?
We can delete package by following steps below: Uri uri = Uri.fromParts("package", strPackageName, null);
Intent it = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_DELETE, uri);
But in that way, Applications Manager's UI will display, my question is how to delete packages silently (without Applications Manager's UI showing).
i work on custom Application Manager and try to get the disk usage of installed package. So PackageManager.getpackageSizeInfo was removed from SDK on 0.9->1.0 update android.content.pm. PackageStats(String pkgName)(cacheSize, codeSize, dataSize) returns always "0" Size of phys. file (java.io.File) in "/data/app" seems wrong/not completely. Has anybody any solution to get the total disc space used by an installed package?View 4 Replies View Related
I'm attempting to override an Android View class to tweak the functionality just slightly. But I need to modify a field that does not have a setter method. I've placed the subclass in a package called android.widget. Why can't I access any of the package-private member fields? I notice that the compiler says they "cannot be resolved," rather than not being accessible. Does this have something to do with how Android.jar is built?View 2 Replies View Related
I have downloaded LauncherPro and Widget Locker. So, everytime I hit home, I get a choice of those two. I don't know why I got Widget Locker, I can't even figure out what it does.
How do I stop it from showing up as an option? I don't want to uninstall it, since I paid for it, and someday I may decide I want it.
I read sometimes in comments of applications that people can't uninstall the app. Has anyone come across this issue before? I have yet to have this problem but should I steer clear of people complaining about apps not uninstalling?View 11 Replies View Related

I have some resources in my app that are going to be loaded optionally for different brands. I don't want to set up entirely different projects each time we re-brand the app so I want to know if the resources that are not used will be always packaged in and if there is a way to avoid this.View 1 Replies View Related

I see a few "uninstall apps" on the market and I am wondering why there are such applications. Uninstalling an app from the phone is not that complicated and it is quite fast. Maybe my question is silly but I am very new to Android. I know that Windows for example does not uninstall programs properly, and one needs often a third party program to really make a clean uninstall. Is that the same with Android, or do these apps just make it faster to uninstall an app (with the same result that one will get with a "uninstall" process through the apps manager)?View 3 Replies View Related

I recently installed one of Chevy's low voltage kernels a few days ago and have since experience extremely laggy performance, random reboots, and terrible battery life compare to what I used to get before I installed it. And most of that stuff has been happening even when I have it maxed at 550. How do I go about uninstalling this kernel?View 14 Replies View Related

Really enjoying the new Droid X so far (my first smartphone), but I'm trying to figure out how to get rid of all this horrible bloatware.

Anyone know if it's possible to remove them?View 2 Replies View Related
I downloaded CPU Tuner yesterday for my EVO, anytime I overclocked it, my phone would keep rebooting to the point I had to do a battery pull and restore another ROM image! So I decided to uninstall it. Went to applications <manage applications<cpu tuner<uninstall. Said it was uninstalled successfully, rebooted my phone and it was still there! Now when I go to manage my applications to uninstall, it's no longer on the list! How do I get it off my phone?View 3 Replies View Related

I missed this on Home++, and I just noticed it an update ago but you can drag an icon to the trash bin, hold it there for 3 seconds and it gives you the option to uninstall.
I don't recall it being mentioned in other ADW threads.

I have version 0.35.3989 installed for Swype. Every time I try to uninstall it says "Uninstall not successful"

Any idea how to uninstall this app?
Ok so I've got smoked glass 6.0.1 running great on my phone but I'm one of the many that are having problem with google maps. I opted to uninstall after installing the rom but I don't know how to do it. I've searched everywhere and they all say just go to manage apps and uninstall from there. I don't have the option to do it from there!...I then saw that you can try filtering and choosing one of the com.google......things that are listed but I don't have the one for maps. Lastly, I saw somewhere using adb shell does the job but I have NO IDEA how to do that.View 3 Replies View Related
Im new to rooting and I really have no clue what im doing for the most part but I rooted using easy root the other day mainly because I wanted the wifi tethering...
Well after rooting with easy root I noticed it gives you some apps to check out now that your rooted...busy box being one of them...so I did it not knowing what it was.
Now I've realized I have no need for it but I know it installed itself into my bin and some other places I think...just wanting to know what is the proper way to get rid of all things busy box after running install?

How would you do this?
Stuck in a fc loop of launcher2 and I cant get to the settings to uninstall it.
I installed Facebook for Android the other day. The update seemed to wreak havoc on my phone so I uninstalled the update. I can't, however, seem to uninstall the Facebook for Android. I just want to go back to Facebook for HTC Sense, since my phone was problem-free before I installed the Android version.
I tried "Manage Applications" and AppBrain. Neither will let me uninstall.

Is there a way to uninstall a theme and go back to exactly what you had before without changing settings?View 3 Replies View Related
I am currently running UD8 with the Watermarked theme on top. I like the theme, but want to go back to the stock UD8, because I like LauncherPro and LP and Watermarked don't exactly match in design. Can I just re-install UD8 on top of what I already have without clearing data/cache, or should I do a complete data/cache wipe before re-installing UD8? Or is there another way to remove a theme that I don't know about?View 1 Replies View Related

Last week I installed Helix, because I wanted more home screens. Got that, and I also like the extra buttons across the bottom, very nice. the phone is laggy when I use Helix. I can switch back to the standard Launcher, and no lag, so it is helix. Is there some settings I can play with to help with the lag? is there another launcher I can try that has 5 screens (or more) and less lag?View 16 Replies View Related
