Android :: Uninstalled Apps Leaving Trash Behind

Feb 9, 2010

i find it quite annoying that uninstalling an app doesn't remove all of its data.sure, this is desired behavior for some apps (a camera for instance), but imo google should have implemented a requirement for an app to explicitly request to be allowed to save permanent data, and if the request wasn't made, collect the location of any saved data and remove it upon uninstallation

Android :: Removing Uninstalled Purchased Apps From Downloads Section Of Market?

Sep 24, 2010

I'm running Froyo on an N-1.I have uninstalled some of the apps that I previously purchased, and I no longer want them to appear in the Downloads area of the Market app. However, they still show up there with the "Purchased" designation, and they contribute to the count of updated apps whenever Market checks for updates.I have followed the instructions here, but they do not work for me:Removing deleted apps from downloads listing.Any ideas as to how I can keep these non-longer-installed, previously purchased apps from showing up within my list of Downloads?

Oct 14, 2009

I've down loaded quite a few apps that I have since uninstalled. I noticed that they are still listed on the My Downloads list with an option to reinstall. My question is, are these apps gone or are they still taking up some of the precious memory? If they are, is there a way to free upmore space by completely removing them?

HTC Incredible :: Moved To SD Card Uninstalled Apps?

Nov 22, 2010

I recently got the app, Advanced SD card something. IDK the full name but searching Advanced SD will find it.Anyway, I turn on my phone after moving all my apps to my SD card, and many, if not most, are all missing. Like, my home screen has the empty boxes as my apps icons and I go to that app menu thing and they are missing. I try to find them but I cannot. I try to re-install them but I cannot.

HTC Hero :: Manage Applications Showing Uninstalled Apps

Jul 21, 2010

I'm using SenseHero and in the past I've restored nandroid backups a few times. I've also wiped the phone before restoring a backup.But after I've used Titanium to re-install apps, the manage applications shows apps that have been uninstalled. When I select them in manage applications, I get a FC.I've investigated a bit, and it seems manage applications thinks the apps are still installed for some reason. If I find the app in Market, then Install and uninstall it, it no longer shows in Manage Applications.Is there a way to force a refresh of Manage Applications? I don't want to have to install/uninstall all the rogue aps.The main reaons for wanting to sort this, is so that when I backup/restore from Titianium, I don't have this issue and I can create a Nandroid backup that is correctly up to date.

Motorola Droid :: What Default Apps Have You Uninstalled From Your Rooted Phone?

Jan 10, 2010

Just wondering what apps you guys have uninstalled fromm your rooted droids... I'm really getting annoyed by some of these apps like google talk storage, alarm clock, and calender launching themselves when they have no business at all running.And even regular apps do this which baffles me why people make apps that launch themselves I wish we had user acccount control I bet someone will make this type of app for rooted devices one day.

General :: Upgrade To Jelly Bean With Uninstalled Stock-apps?

Nov 6, 2012

I will upgrade my stock ICS 4.0.3 to JB when that is released to my Samsung S2. But the problem is that I have removed a lot of bloatware on my phone like Game Hub, Music Hub but also the stock-clock (and more) with Titanium Backup. But will that cause a conflict with Jelly Bean when JB is being installed? The system is missing files and apps, and then JB is installed on top of that. Sounds like a setup for problems to me. Tried JB with uninstalled stock-apps on their old ICS?

Motorola Droid :: Cleaning Up SD Card / Leftover Folders From Uninstalled Apps

Dec 24, 2009

Anyone know if there is an app (or PC program) that will scan the SD card and determine what folders are no longer needed that are left over from uninstalled apps? I have installed/uninstalled tons of apps and I still see folders on the SD card from apps I know that I no longer have. I have deleted the ones I know are safe to remove but there are some with names that are a little less descriptive of what they were for. I know I could just google each folder name and probably figure each one out individually but I thought there might be an app for it.

Android :: Why Is Animation Leaving A Trail?

Jun 18, 2009

I'm animating a an ImageView from the right to the left of the screen using a translate animation. The ImageView is place inside a RelativeLayout over the top of my main layout using FrameLayout. When I run the animation on the emulator everything works pretty well but when I use run it on my G1 it leaves visual artifacts behind and effects the rendering of the text component behind it. Is this a performance issue and I'm being too ambitious or is it a bug I can overcome? If it is a performance issue is there anything I can do to improve things?

Android :: Leaving An Application By Pressing Home

Aug 14, 2010

I've recently been getting user complaints that when they leave my app by pressing the 'Home' key, my app continues to play sounds like it is supposed to, but when they go back to the app, a new one opens, but the old one is still running in the background. I have noticed this sometimes myself too, but only recently (my app has been on the market for a while now). I've done some testing myself and noticed that when a new instance of the app is opened after pressing 'Home' then starting the app again, pressing the 'back' key will go back to the original instance of the app that was opened. This means that the original instance of the app was not killed, but a new one was just opened over it. Has anyone else experience something like this?

Android :: Contacts From 1.5 And 1.6 - Filtering Out Trash

Feb 24, 2010

I am trying to write a clean bit of code that can list the people in a 1.5/1.6 Contacts data store, and I do not see how I filter out the cruft that Google throws in (ad hoc "contacts" literally addressed by other apps and stored, for some reason, in the contact list without a clear means of discerning them from the real people the user cared to enter - the ones that would appear in the contacts app). I see that in 2.0 or so, "IN_VISIBLE_GROUP" is added as a field which seems to differentiate these versions, but what existed to accomplish this before that time? Here is my code which works in 2.x and fails to keep the chaff out in 1.x, as the selection parameter is unsupported:
final String[] proj = new String[] { Contacts.People._ID, Contacts.People.NAME };
final String selection = Build.VERSION.SDK_INT < 5 ? null : ContactsContract.Contacts.IN_VISIBLE_GROUP + "=1";
Cursor people = context.getContentResolver().query( Contacts.People.CONTENT_URI, proj, selection, null, Contacts.People.DEFAULT_SORT_ORDER);
if (people != null) { final int personIdColumn = people .getColumnIndexOrThrow(Contacts.People._ID);
final int nameColumn = people .getColumnIndexOrThrow(Contacts.People.NAME);
while (people.moveToNext()) { if (Thread.interrupted()) { people.close();
outputList.clear(); throw new InterruptedException();
} long personId = people.getLong(personIdColumn);
String name = people.getString(nameColumn);
if (name != null) { outputList.add(new Contact(personId, name));
} } // clean up cursor people.close();
}

Its easy enough to hook onkeypressed(), but how do I figure out that this is a "last" activity in the task?

Android :: Handle Background Threads When Leaving An Activity?

Oct 10, 2010

I need my Android app to save it's state to disk when its activity is put in the background or killed. It's been suggested that I start a thread when onPause() is called and perform any expensive I/O procedures there (see http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3894668/saving-loading-document-state-quickly-and-robustly-for-image-editor).

In what situations will the OS kill the thread and how commonly do these situations occur?

I assume it will be like how Activities are dealt with where the OS can arbitrary decide to kill the thread but will mostly only do this when resources are extremely limited. It would be nice to find some specific documentation of this though.

From playing around, with some test code, a background thread started in onPause() will run indefinitely in the background on my device (I tried loading lots of apps and couldn't get it to be killed).

For my specific app, I'm writing a bitmap editor where I'm using the Command pattern and the Memento pattern to allow undo and redo of edits. I'd like the user to be able to undo/redo their edits even e.g. the user gets a phone call and the activity is killed when it is put in the background. The best solution I can think of is to use a background thread to constantly save my command and memento objects to disk during application use and to finish up saving any objects that are left in a background thread if onPause is called. In the worse case, if the thread is killed I'll only lose some edits.

Android :: K9 Mail - (IMAP) Trash Folder

Aug 30, 2010

When I delete a message from my K9 Mail app, it creates a label in my webmail account named "[imap]/trash". It also places a copy of the mesasge in the normal TRASH folder. I delete the [imap]/trash folder from my webmail account, but K9 re-creates it whenever I delete a message from the phone. How can I stop K9 from doing this, and only placing a copy in the normal TRASH folder?

Android :: Gmail Application Not Emptying Trash Folder?

May 14, 2010

Why will the gmail app not empty the trash folder? If I delete an email on the phone and then switch to the trash folder my emails are there. I then select them all again to delete as you would expect. Yet each time I reload the trash folder all the deleted emails are still there. If I want to really delete them I have to go in to gmail with my pc.

Samsung Captivate :: Leaving On USB Charger All Day

Jul 28, 2010

I have a desk job that I'm pretty much at my desk 90% of the time and was wondering if I have it hooked up to my PC through USB cable and have it fully charged all day, is that okay to do?Meaning I rather siphon off the power from the PC instead of the battery which might conserve it in the long run from not cycling as much. I use to do that with my Iphone 3g and my battery was still good after using it for almost 2 years.I wasn't sure how the power management was handled on the Captivate meaning is it sucking power from the battery and it's constantly recharging or if it sees that it's connected via USB, it powers the phone from the PC or outlet.

HTC EVO 4G : Phone Resets When Leaving House / Fix?

Jun 21, 2010

So my phone has this weird pattern of resetting about 2 minutes away from my house when I'm driving (happened in two opposite directions). It was just sitting in my pocket and I hear it reset (sometimes it reset multiple times on the same trip). I thought it was maybe the task killer running funny so I disabled it, and still it resets. Happens every time. I'm using Fresh 0.3 but it happened in earlier versions of Fresh too. Anyone else having this issue? Maybe it has to do with switching towers or something (in my house I get a very very very weak signal).

Samsung Moment :: How To Get Rid Of Trash?

Dec 28, 2009

How can I get rid of all the Trash! I finally figured out how to delete emails from the inbox, but now they end up in the Trash instead! I have tried to read as much as I have time for regarding email. Perhaps I set it up incorrectly from the beginning. I use Outlook/Comcast and set it up in the "regular email" Perhaps I should delete that one and use Work email?

Samsung Galaxy S :: How To Get Rid Of Trash File On SD?

Oct 21, 2010

I've been trying to work out why I only have 5.9g of my sd card available when it says only 1.9g is used in my file browser (this is the 14gb internal sd card I'm talking about). Enabled show hidden files/folders and this .trash-1000 folder appeared with like 7gb in it. It's all the stuff I've deleted over time; movies, images etc.

All the stuff I delete I do via astro or when browsing the folder from my computer (ubuntu) so I'm wondering which created this file and how do I get rid of it. I can just delete the stuff in it, but I don't want to have to go through this time after time.

I have a HTC EVO and I can't seem to clear my trash file from my phone. Once I delete a message from my phone it then goes to the trash. I try to delete that same message from the trash but it doesn't delete forever like it is suppose to. I have to either go on my PC to do it or use my internet browsers to delete forever.
