I'm looking for a method or an application for android tablet, which allows me to quickly reset the device deleting any data (from the Internet cache, and the cache to the photos of the various programs such as facebook, twitter etc ...) and that does not allow any modification of the operating system. I need this solution because I have a restaurant and I want to put a tablet on each table for guests to make him see the menu (full of photos and videos), surf the internet and play with the kids.
is there an app that allows this? or is there a quick way to do this, such as a multiaccount management ? I remember, for example, that for windows there are applications that completely erase any unauthorized modification, files and cache, at the time you restart the operating system.
what gets cleared when you clear dalvik cache and cache partitions? like will i have to reflash the froyo mms fix after doing this? or will it stay like the gapps do? because i know the gapps stay in system or something like that. so im not quite sure where things are stored.
Is it possible to force the cache of your app to clear when the user exits the app? My app piles up cache data (rightfully so) on each start, which is no longer needed once the user quits the app, so I am trying to find a way to forcibly clear it.
I am wondering if there is a way to clear the cache and no I don't mean partion cache wipe of all apps except one? I used some apps but they clear all of them. The reason I ask is because QuickPic loads the thumbnails of my photos and when I clear the cache it takes forever to load all the thumbnails for my photos and then drains my battery while doing so.
I opened ASTRO file manager Menu>More>Preferences and there is a setting to clear the internal caches. I already cleared mine manually through the settings>manage applications so I am not sure if ASTRO clears all the caches on the Eris or not.
I have just recently rooted my wife's phone because she saw a couple of themes she wanted and I informed her the only way to get themes like what she was looking at (J-Rummy's Pink Life) was to root and rom the device and then theme it. So what I did was just root the phone using RSD Lite by installing SPRecovery on her phone and then applying the root update.zip file to the device. No problems from that point on. I did that a few days ago. I just went ahead and purchased Rom Manager for easier application of Roms/Themes. I downloaded Lithium Mod/Pink-Life Rom and then selected clear data and cache and install. I have run into nothing but problems. I am getting constant force closes, system freezes, reboots, etc. So, first thing I think of is, different kernel. Same thing. I try three different kernels and get the same problems. I then decide to just revert back to her previous setup (clean 2.1 with Root access). Everything is back to normal with no issues at all except for the fact the wife wants a Pink Rom.
I then decide to try BB 0.4, thinking maybe it had something to do with the ROM. I installed it the same way as I did the last one. I did everything through ROM Manager. Got the same results. I just wanted to make sure I listed everything I did so maybe there could be some different insight on what is going wrong, but my question is...is it better to reboot into recovery and wipe data/cache and then install from recovery or just install through Rom Manager? I know that sounds dumb because Rom Manger boots into recovery anyway and does exactly what you would have done, but does it truly do it the same is my question? If the answer is yes, Rom Manager takes care of all that for you, then does anyone know of anything else I could try to maybe get a ROM running on this device without all of these problems? I am running out of ideas. I have even tried installing it through SPRecovery (changing the name to update.zip of course).
I was rooted and not thinking about using the cache clear app I did it using the recovery menu in the phone. Now I can't see to be able to rename .apk files on the phone. It says the file system is read-only. I have tried remounting the filesystem several times and i can't.
I'm using a galaxy note 10.1 2013 edition, and was wondering if there are any apps that allow the same functions of the 4.3 trim (clearing cache). If there aren't any, I don't mind having to manually clear cache, but is it possibly to do it without rooting?
My browser got a bit out of whack (for some reason the default Google search page stopped displaying the search field). Also the 'data' was taking up almost 10MB and I'm running low on application disk space (dammit they have to find a way to let us store apps on our sdcards) Anyway.. I did a "clear data" thing on the browser, thinking this would only clear temporary internet files, but it reset everything (wiped out my favorites and saved passwords.
I synced up with my computer after uninstalling unused apps and clearing the browser cache and a few others, just general clean up to keep the phone running smooth. After roaming around my sd card, I came across this. A total of 84 cache files totaling 3.24mb. What is this from and is it ok to delete them? I'm assuming it is since it is just cache, which you can delete any of theme xcept for google nav (force close issues).
I have heaps of added apps on my Galaxy Gio, as a result of which (despite rooting and moving all I can to SD card) I'm forever running out of memory (I presume this means RAM - I'm a bit new to all this!). Sometimes I can't even do an update of an existing app without it aborting due to low memory.
So today I went through the apps list and cleared the data for every app that I thought I didn't use. BUT all my carefully arranged home screens (full of my own app icons) disappeared, and reverted to the phone default icons!
I can eventually rebuild my several home screens, but I'd like to learn which particular app's data stores that information (home screen layouts), so I don't ever clear it again!
I'm getting the following error message "Unfortunately Gallery has stopped". In the Apps manager for Gallery, I have already cleared the cache and cleared the data, and also pressed "force stop". I've also restarted the phone. However it's still not working.
I kept getting a low on space warning so I decided to go into the 'Managing Applications' menu and found some apps had a large 'Data' reading.The Twitter app in particular was using just under 10mb.I decided to click the 'Clear Data' button and it warned me that this would clear all my account settings etc but I thought I'd give it a try.Anyway, it brought the data level right down to virtually nothing and my Twitter app didn't lose any of my account settings. I didn't even need to sign in again and everything works like it did before and I now have some free space.I did the same with the Facebook app. The data has come right down, I was required to sign in again with this though.I had about 13mb of space left before, now I have 45mb.
How do you clear map data & history from Googgle Maps & Navigation?I checked in the help menu, where it states go to;settings >applications>manage applications>maps>clear data.but there is everything but 'clear data' option, so I'm stumped
OK, before I start, it's about an LT15i. I don't know what's happening, but at some .FTFs Flashtool does not show the file list (middle column) and neither "wipe cache" or data and one FTF has the "wipe cache" option only. This is really annoying. Tutorials specify a download link for a specific FTF and after starting Flashtool and selecting the flash option, that FTF is not showing up properly. Should I download an earlier version of the program?
I am running a cm10 based Rom on my note 2 and as such can't move apps to the sd card through the usual channels. I was able to get my play music cached songs to store on the external sd and any way to do the same for Google Play magazines as they take up more room.
In cm roms, dalvik cache of system apps are generated in /cache but those data/apps are generated in /data. Is there any way to disable this behaviour? Cache partition in our phones is too small. In AOSP and AOKP and stock roms, dalvik cache is always generated in /data no matter whether its a system app. any way to achieve this in cm roms?
After "clear data" for "MEDIA STORAGE" application(i wanted to reset the library for Music) I have now only one ringtone. Im sure along with this, other necessary things got deleted. Is there any way to recover all of Media Storage without doing a factory reinstall? Motorola Milestone OS 2.1 - update1
I'm trying to understand the way android handles my application cache data....Some times i'll go in there and the cache directory is 6-7mb. What type of data is stored there? Is there a way in the mainifest I can say don't use cache or clear cache at Xmb ?
I have an ArrayList of custom, simple Serializable objects I would like to cache to disk and read on re-launch. My data is very small, about 25 objects and at most 5 lists so I think SQLite would be overkill. In the iPhone world I would use NSKeyedArchiver and NSKeyedUnarchiver which works great. On Android I've attempted to do this with with a FileOutputStream and ObjectOutputStream and while the result is the same, the performance is terrible. Is there a better (read faster) way to cache small objects to the file system in Android?
So using Rom manager I went ffrom baked snack 1.7 to 1.8 I wiped data and cleared SD cache and I lost everything all my apps. I rid back up 1.7 so is there any way i can get my apps back cuz I don't want to download.them again
I am trying to install [ROM] Uncommon Sense (v1.0) Release! - xda-developers and it says I need the full wipe! Does that mean I have to wipe? the cache and data? The two options availabe for wipe in the menu? Also, I place the zip in the root of the memory card, yes?
