General :: Hide Root / Su From Another Application?

Jun 15, 2011

My company has a policy for our company email application (Good) that doesn't allow the application to run if a phone is rooted. Brilliant, the application is password protected and has remote wipe capabilities, but that still isn't enough for them! Which means I'm stuck carrying two phones around. I would like to either hide superuser/su/root from the phone when I'm not needing the escalated rights, or just block it from seeing it completely.

I'm currently running (about to upgrade to a new ROM, but not sure which):
Samsung Galaxy S Captivate
MODEL #: SAMSUNG-SGH-I897
FIRMWARE: 2.2
BASEBAND VERSION: I897UCJI6
KERNEL VER: 2.6.32.9
BUILD #: COGNITION.V2.3B8

One last thought if I can get this accomplished. I might be that I might be looking to get the new Samsung Infuse 4g (AT&T), since I'd finally be consolidating to 1 phone.

Android :: Hide Application From Application List

Nov 1, 2010

Is there any way to hide an application icon from Android applications list ? The application should be downloaded from Market and opened some GUI for configuring my application. I don't want to see any icon of my application in applications list. User should not be able to run it.

By the way I know some way:
remove this line from manifest
<category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />

But it is not worked for me, because the GUI is not shown.

Android :: Possible To Hide Application Permissions From User?

Jul 11, 2010

I am wanting to know if a developer has the ability to choose not to display the permissions needed for an app they create. For an example if there is a note taking app in the market that says no permissions needed, but in reality, it does have "internet access"capabilities not shown to the user/downloader, Is it possible for App permissions to be hidden and not displayed to the user? Can someone explain to me the process on assigning and displaying permissions on android apps?

Android :: How To Hide Application Icon From Desktop?

Jul 6, 2010

I defined an application which is only used from my other application. So I would like to hide the icon of this application, so that the user can't see it on the desktop of his phone (or how do you call the thing where all apps are listed?). My manifest file looks the following way:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<manifest xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android" package="xyz.games.pacman.controller" android:versionCode="1" android:versionName="1.0">
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.BLUETOOTH"/>
<application android:icon="@drawable/icon" android:label="@string/app_name">
<activity android:name=".PacmanGame" android:label="@string/app_name" android:screenOrientation="portrait"> <intent-filter>
<action android:name="pacman.intent.action.Launch" />
<category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
</intent-filter> </activity>
<receiver android:name="xyz.games.pacman.network.MessageListener">
<intent-filter> <action android:name="xyz.games.pacman.controller.BROADCAST" />
</intent-filter> </receiver> </application> <uses-sdk android:minSdkVersion="7" /> </manifest>

I already read this question:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1063604/how-to-hide-an-application-icon-in-android-emulator
But if I just remove the line
<category android:name="android.intent.category.DEFAULT" />
in my manifest, the activity isn't working at all (ActivityNotFoundException in the calling activity). I already tried android.intent.category.EMBEDDED but this doesn't work too. In the Internet I found CommonsWare answer http://osdir.com/ml/Android-Developers/2010-06/msg03617.html that it can be done using PackageManager. Unfortunately, it isn't explained how exactly and I couldn't find a solution by browsing the PackageManager API.

Android :: Any Way To Hide Certain Application Permissions / Inbuilt File Manager?

Jul 3, 2010

I was wondering, is there anyway a developer can hide or exclude a certain app permissions from being seen by Android market users? And are the permissions for an app controlled or regulated by Google? Another question I have - Is there anyway to restrict PDF files from opening in the default browser? This is a problem when I am on a search engine and accidentally click a link that's a pdf file- I don't want pdf's downloaded without asking me permission atleast. And my last question, is there a way to view current extensions that are installed in the browser.? Where is androids inbuilt file manager? Does uninstalling an application completely take off everything related to that app from your phone?

General :: How To Change Active Root Application

Sep 22, 2012

So, my ROM comes preloaded with a root app that I've never heard of, and I want to use Superuser (and the Elite I paid for).

The bundled app came with a 'cleanup/uninstall' script, that I ran, that promised to remove itself and it's root-granting abilities.

Now, even though I've got Superuser (Elite) installed, apps are saying I don't have root.

How do I configure Android (or SU) to use SU as my root-granting application?

General :: Can't Connect Phone To PC To Run Root Application (LG Optimus S)

Sep 15, 2012

I have an LG Optimus S that I am trying to root, however I can't get it to connect to my PC. My brother has the same device and his connects fine right away to my system, however mine does nothing but charge when connected (used same drivers, PC, chord, etc.)

I tried restoring it to factory settings and no luck. Later took it to Sprint and he just re-updated the software and it connected right away to their PC. Then as soon as I got home it didn't connect again.

Also tried with my work laptop. His connects, mine doesn't. Could there be a reason why mine didn't work as soon as I got back from the store?

I made sure that the settings from by brothers phone matched mine and verified that the software is identical.

General :: How To Hide Menu Items

Sep 5, 2013

I've got this piece of code from an xml in my settings.apk (SecSettings actually) that contains tutorials on motion settings.

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<PreferenceScreen android:title="@string/motion_tutorial_settings_title" android:key="parent"
xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android">
<Preference android:title="@string/turn_over_title" android:key="turn_over" android:summary="@string/turn_over_summary" />

[Code] ......

In there, all the red parts contain tutorials on settings that don't actually work on my device, and for OCD sake, I don't want them appearing in my settings because of it. But simply cutting them out of that file will make the settings app crash whenever i open that menu

So question is: is there a way to hide these settings without impairing their functions?

General :: Auto-hide Status Bar In JB

Nov 24, 2013

I've been using various ROMs (including various Xposed modules) in the past and most of them allow me to auto-hide the status bar.But whenever I swipe down from the top and the statusbar is displayed, it resizes the entire content on my phone.

What I was looking for is a statusbar that will show up above the content, like the immersive mode in KitKat but for JB so it doesn't resize my content but overlap it.

I know there are some apps that give you this kind of auto-hide status bar but it will only work in fullscreen apps, so I tried to make everything on my phone full screen (using expanded desktop) but it doesn't seem to work...
