General :: Disable Updates For Specific Apps?

Jun 4, 2014

if there was a way to disable updates for specific apps on an android?

I own a Samsung Galaxy S3 and I always have the apps that came with the phone wanting to be updated. I don't use them since I consider many of them to be a waste of space on my phone and would rather get rid of them, but would at least like to stop the updating for them.

General :: GS3 Rooted - How To Disable Updates For Specific Apps In Market

Jul 24, 2013

It used to be the market would separate apps that were approved for auto update from those that had disabled auto update set. One could then simply hit the Update All (for the group) button and it would update ONLY the apps that were auto update enabled. Over the past few months Play Store has changed their behavior in that it no longer separates the apps and will only enable auto updates for everything or nothing.

How can I hide or otherwise prevent these few apps that I do not want to update from being in the play store update list? As it is now, I have to selectively update each individual app from the list, skipping the few apps I do not want updated.

Currently on a Samsung GS3, rooted, stock.

General :: Disable Specific App Permission For Specific Or All Apps

Mar 12, 2014

I have had androids for over two years now and am getting more and more concerned every time I download an app and seeing that it wants to READ my SMS message and Contacts.

Is there a way I can disable reading of SMS messages or any one of the other permissions by specific apps, or all apps?

Are we living in a world where any "joe schmo" can upload an app the to the app store and wait for those inadvertent downloads and collect all your personal information, and that's after all the time we spend protecting our identity and personal details?

General :: Disable Toast Notifications (for Specific App)

Jan 28, 2014

Is there a way (an app, framework module, flashable zip, whatever) to disable toast notifications? Ideally, this should work for a specific app but if that's not possible disabling them in total would be fine, too.

"Why would you do that", you may ask. Well, the thing is, I use the app "Best Wifi" to switch my wifi automatically at home since I'm using a repeater there. But as soon as I'm in an area without wifi connection, it tries to connect to a wifi and keeps on sending toast notifications with "no APN found blabla" every 15 seconds. Thats especially disturbing when I use my phone as a navigation device in the car. So, it would be great if I could block those toast notifications from popping up.

Currently, I'm using a rooted Nexus 5 with Beanstalk ROM on 4.4.2.

General :: How To Disable Playstore Updates

Oct 22, 2013

just got my new phone and unfortunately i had to realize, that there are some apps i cant install.

I know that this issue depends on my Playstore, so i want to install a custom playstore with no restrictions.

Did this many times on other phones and never got problems.

But this time there is a problem:

I can install the modded version of the playstore without any problems. But it self-updates every time and i cant do anything against.

In the Last android versions there was a "Market Updater" App, which you could just freeze to avoid this.

But in my Android 4.2.2 theres no such app.

How I can prevent the Playstore from updating?

General :: How To Disable Calendar Notifications For Specific Account

Mar 28, 2013

I use my phone to with two calendar accounts, one google-account for private and one outlook exchange account for company. I want both to sync so that I can watch the calendar (that works). I want my private account to notify me of calendar events (that works). But I do NOT want my company account to notify me of calendar events, because there are so many meetings, that its like SPAM (and I am already reminded by my laptop at work).

So: Can I turn off the notifications for a specific account?

To clarify:

- no I do not want to change the notifications on the appointments, because I do want to be reminded at work
- no I do not want to disable the synchronisation for the company account, because I do want to be able to look at my calendar.

It is easily possible to disable the mail notification for the company account only, but it seems not to be possible for calendar notifications?

General :: How To Disable Auto-update Under Specific WiFi

Jan 2, 2014

I am a newbie to Android world. Recently I bought a Freedompop (which gives you 500MB free data every month) and I wanna use it with my Nexus 7 as a GPS/infotainment system on my car. However, I want to disable App/system auto-update under Freedompop WiFi on my car (Freedompop actually works like a tethering point), but still enable it at home (so I can still get some updates and I won't forget to turn it off when I get on my car). Is there any app will do that? Or any tricks?

General :: Get Certain Apps Specific UIDs?

Nov 28, 2012

What part of AOSP would I have to modify to make it work? I tried locating the code that handles setting the UID of new installed packages, but failed to find anything relevant.

General :: Excluding Specific Apps From Titanium Backup Schedules

How can we put a negative filter on Titanium Backup so that it excludes specific apps instead of selecting for it (as does the default positive filter)?

For example, I want to exclude Seek Droid from TB's "Backup New Apps" schedule, so that I will back up everything that's been recently installed, but not Seek Droid.

Motorola Droid :: How To Disable OTA Updates?

Sep 8, 2010

As soon as the 2.2 update was leaked for the Droid, I downloaded it and applied it to my phone, rather than keep waiting for Verizon to push it out weeks later. The update process went smoothly, and I have been running Froyo for a couple weeks now.

The problem is, now my phone bugs me with the OTA update notification constantly, and the only options I have are to install, or install later. I have no option to decline the update. Is there any way to tell android to stop attempting to apply the OTA update? I am surprised it is even trying, as its already running 2.2 so why would it still try and update? If it matters, I have rooted my Droid.

KitKat 4.4 :: Disable Automatic App Updates?

Mar 18, 2014

I frequently get unsolicited notifications that one or more apps have been updated. Is there a way to disable automatic app updates? I like to check for myself to see if I really want a specific app update. Examples: some apps want to enable new permissions that I don't necessarily want; some irreversibly change or even do away with the app - e.g., Currents.

Phone is a new Nexus 5. (Great phone, by the way)

General :: Good App To Hide And Also Run (not Disable) Apps On ICS 4.0.4

Jun 27, 2012

I am looking at a good way to hide apps from the list. I want the apps to be able to run (like Email) and do the sync, but not to display the icons in the list. I have seen that ICS comes with a "Disable" function for system apps, but it doesn't work for me because it also prevents the app from running.

I also want a way to launch the apps myself (through a hidden menu or command) at will.

I have tried things like Application Protection, which allows you to password protect the apps you want. However, since the icons are still there, it is still tempting for my kind to click and ask for the password.
