General :: Apps Permissions After Uninstall

Mar 11, 2014

When installing a app (after confirm its permissions) - the persmissions like "contact", "calls", etc (all kind of permissions) - are disabled to the dev once I delete the app or he always have access to my info (at permissions) OR at the time I've download the app he have access to the permissions until I delete it and all the permissions are disable?

Usually this information/permissions are availabe to the dev automatically once I install the app or he need manualy to get into this informations? If I force stop the app, will it still have access to my data (permissions) or only if its running?

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: No Permissions To Uninstall / Equalizer Settings Not Accessible

Oct 1, 2010

I am extremely happy with my X10i, and yesterday I received and installed the latest update with no problems; however, I have a few questions:

1) Why is it that you do not give us "permission" to uninstall things such as the Moxier suite and PlayNow (which is unavailable to us in the USA) without us having to resort to the extreme of rooting?
2) Why is it that you do not give us access to equalizer settings? Again, only through rooting, can we get access to this. (note: the 3rd party apps in Android store are all junk) Would it be that difficult to add an equalizer in MediaScape?
3) Why is it that Skype comes preinstalled on the X1, but not on the X10? I'm on the T-Mobile network, and here in the USA, Skype for Android is only available to those on the Verizon network. I am forced to use Nimbuzz (which is a great application by-the-way), but it would be nice to have the actual Skype application that is available on the X1. If you got "permission" to preinstall it on the X1, I would assume you can do the same with the X10.

I truly believe that the X10 is an "iCrap" killer; however, if the little things I mention above were to be addressed, in my opinion, this would make a lot of X10 users happy, and make the X10 truly an IPhone killer in the eyes of others.

General :: Apps With Excessive / Unnecessary Permissions?

Mar 30, 2014

A friend has ordered her first ever smartphone (Moto G) and I am tasked with showing her the ropes on using it. Although she really isn't technically-inclined, she does listen to what she is told and I really want to instill good, safe habits in her from the outset.

One of the lessons she needs teaching is regarding malicious apps, and checking permissions before installing anything. You know, stuff like games which want access to make phone calls, send sms, etc

To be clear, what I'm looking for is apps that request excessive permissions, so I can show her what she should be looking out for and avoiding when she's installing apps

General :: Apps That Require Permissions Not Needed For Task

Feb 20, 2013

I didnt have a smartphone for a while and i just got a shining new nexus 4.

I want to installs all the apps out there but i realise many of them require permissions that (i think) are not actually needed by the app to do whatever it needs to do..

For example i want to install power toggles it asks to use my camera... cant the flashlight be turned on without allowing the camera to be used?

Anyways, i realise that apps that sometimes do the exact same things require different permissions, hence... ?

So main question is: is the permission to use the camera really required by an app that turns on the led?

General :: Stop Apps From Starting Automatically / Overriding App Permissions?

Nov 2, 2012

Some backround on this post. I own 2 android devices, a Samsung Galaxy i9003 and since yesterday, a Nexus 7.

I have ditched my Galaxy as a phone and gone to Blackberry due to battery issues, and apps on my Samsung draining the battery from full to empty in the space of a few hours, so I am now very careful about what I install. Since removing almost all the apps (and the SIM card) from the galaxy, I now have a battery live measured in days (including watching video) rather than hours just sitting doing nothing...

I understand the use of apps auto-starting themselves to provide notifications, such as Facebook, Twitter & Accuweather, but even though I do use these apps for what they are, I do not need them running all the time to provide a notification: The added "work" in starting the app to check updates is worth the extra battery life I get, as if I leave things alone to be automatically managed, my battery life is divided by 10... and having to flip the phone in and out of flight mode is a pain... (especially when you forget to activate it in the afternoon after charging and at 3 AM in the morning you have no battery left to call a taxi...)

So, what I would like to understand is this: Where does android store the information on autostarting applications? Even if I use a task killer, some apps will restart later on. Android must have some sort of task scheduler to restart registered apps after a certain amount of time has passed or on certain events.

how Android manages this list - and more importantly, how to change it, and also if there is any way to override the registered permissions of an app once it has been installed?

General :: Adjusting Permissions Or Feeding False Data To Apps?

Mar 24, 2014

Before rooting my device I had read there's the possibility of adjusting the permissions or even feeding false data to apps.

Today I found such an app to allow me to do so.

Both xposed apk and xprivacy ! I downloaded both which is needed. Anyway before configuring to operate there was a warning to have backup of whole system and know how to recover. Further warning said there was possibility of soft brick and bootloop. I immediately deleted them both. So did I do the right thing?

Every once in a while it just Mysteriously Fixes itself and I can all of a sudden see My Apps again in the Market app... But I Don't know What's Causing it to Hide My Apps and I Don't know What's Fixing it?

General :: How To Uninstall Root Apps

Aug 30, 2012

I tried installing "Black Hole Live" wallpaper from the PlayStore, it failed to install BUT left some sort of remnants in the "Apps Listing" that will not allow being uninstalled. It shows as 00B on all "storage" and is "Disabled". Being from IT, I like things clean and tiddy. This remnant refuses to uninstall, I've even looked everywhere it could reside using ES File Explorer, nothing. HOW do I get rid of this stinker??

Second: I'm sure this has been covered before, but I have to ask again if not. There are Apps that are put on the device from the factory, buried somewhere in the OS, that aren't "free" apps after a ridiculously short "Trial Period". I want to remove them, they're using up storage space and I don't use them. One in particular with an absurd 7 day free trial is PRESS READER. I want it off! I downloaded an Uninstaller called "Root Uninstaller APK", but it shows nothing that any other Uninstaller does and Press Reader is not shown.

General :: Uninstall Apps Without Going Through Uninstaller?

Jun 17, 2012

I have an HTC One X which is rooted, and I am wondering is there a way (or an app) to uninstall other apps without going through the normal uninstaller?

It'd be much faster to select a load of apps and have the phone uninstall them automatically..

I'm asking here rather than the HTC One X area because this is relative to any Android phone.

General :: How To Uninstall Stock Android Apps

Jan 21, 2013

I have heard people say that you can use Titanium Backup to uninstall stock apps. I don't have the pro version, do I just go to the Backup/Restore menu and click the app and uninstall? Is that it? Also, some of the apps don't seem to show up in Titanium backup. Specifically, I wanted to uninstall Messenger, but I can't find it in the list. Another thing is I want to uninstall the Google Search so that the search capacitive button won't have that app pop up or any of the search app for that matter. Is it safe to uninstall Google Search?

General :: App Update Permissions - Any Way To Restrict Permissions?

Jul 23, 2012

The permissions say that you must agree to allow them to delete files from your storage including your SD card; must agree to allow them to extract any information from your phone, etc. In other words they can do any thing they want with your phone and the data in it.

Is there any way to not grant these permissions and still get updates?

General :: Do Apps Uninstall Completely Or Leave Traces Behind

Jun 8, 2012

I would like to know if android apps leave traces of themselves behind when I uninstall them (similar to how when you uninstall a windows program you'd most likely have orphan files or directories, registry entries and maybe a .dll here and there).In other words, can I install apps on my stock unrooted ICS phone being confident that if I don't like it I can just uninstall them and my phone won't be slower, or have less space because of it?

Android :: Permissions To Install Other Apps

Apr 9, 2009

We are a team of Android developers and we are facing a serious problem for quite some time. Our app (a game client) is designed in such a way, that once it's installed it can be used to download games from a game server. In order for the downloaded games to work, they have to be installed and launched by the client.The problem is that the client has no write/update rights for the / data/dalvik-cache directory, unless we specifically execute the chmod 777 command for that directory. Setting the android.permission.INSTALL_PACKAGES permission in the client's manifest file also doesn't work. After reading countless forums where other people have complained about the same problem, we would like to know when this issue is going to be resolved. Apparently the code for this feature already exists (the DexFile class of the so called "cupcake" release) but it hasn't been released yet.What's more frustrating is that the Android team points out that all Android apps are equal, that system apps are equal in rights to custom apps. Obviously this is not the case. If the client game app is installed in the /system/app the problem described above is solved. System apps have the right to dynamically install other apps. Regular apps (installed in the /data/data folder) do not.Is this issue going to be resolved anytime soon? Will the "cupcake" DexFile class going to be present in the next release? This is a rather urgent problem since we are waiting for this new functionality in order to continue development.

Android :: Can Apps Request Additinal Permissions At Runtime

I'm working on an app which contains some scripting support. The scripts executed by this app might require all sorts of permissions in the future, but it's difficult to predict which ones.

Is there a way to request additional permissions at runtime (like iPhone apps sometimes do) instead of specifying them all in advance in AndroidManifest.xml?

Android :: Updating Permissions For Apps That Modify SharedUserID

Oct 6, 2009

I'm looking to update my app and provide a sharedUserId as part of my manifest, so that the several apps I have can all nicely look at each other's private files if necessary. Unfortunately, I've discovered that adding a sharedUserId where it did not exist before will change the userId and make me unable to modify current existing files.Is there a graceful way to handle updating your sharedUserId now that I need its functionality? Or am I pretty much resigned to requiring people to uninstall and reinstall my app to be able to do this?

Android : Default Permissions Granted For Apps On Droid?

Aug 6, 2010

I have noticed in an application I wrote, in-spite of me not specifying any permission in the manifest file, the application throws up permissions granted, such as

android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE
android.permission.READ_PHONE_STATE

What is all that about? I was not even aware my application needs to write into external store, and I am pretty sure it doesn't need to. So why are these permission being granted when I never requested for them?

Sprint HTC Hero :: Remove - Delete / Uninstall Pre-installed Programs - Apps - Or Sprint Apps

Nov 7, 2009

Is there any way to remove pre-installed programs?

For example, the following programs were pre-installed:

Amazon MP3
Footprints
Teeter

And maybe some others.

I've just tried:

Settings | Applications | Manage Apps

And noticed there's not always an option to Uninstall on these and some others.

Is it possible to remove, delete, uninstall, or get them off the device?

Is there any way to remove the pre-installed Sprint programs?

Sprint TV
Sprint-Nextel
NFL
Nascar

Are there some "core apps" or "core programs" that can't be removed?

A brief search on this matter on related threads seems to indicate only on "rooted" phones.
