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?

Android :: Adjusting Application Permissions Real Time

Feb 25, 2010

I know you can apply Permissions for Applications on it's manifest.xml file. What I want to know is, can those Permissions be adjusted by the Applications on the fly?Here's my reason: say I have an application that is allowed to do "x", "y", and "z" (SMS, sockets, etc) Permissions. Now lets say I have a logical "user" that connects to this Application, and I want that user to only be able to do "x" and "y", but not "z" Permissions. It would be nice to have the Android Framework handle that instead of having a bunch of "if's" in the App code.

General :: Adjusting Storage Allocation (SD / USB /Apps)

Dec 14, 2011

Problem discovered while installing Navfree. Got the error message "not enough space". I cant move it to the SD card or anything as I can't install it even.

I have 25Gb of available space but less than 2Gb for apps? I'd like to use all internal storage for apps and the external card for media. How I set that up?

I have a Galaxy S2 Epic (SPH-D710) stock ROM, rooted with the zermax kernel and fited with a Sandisk 16Gb class 4 micro sd card.

Settings>Applications>Manage applications>All
112Mb used of 1.9Gb available.

Settings>Storage>USB storage
Total space is 11.5Gb and Available space 11.5Gb

Settings>Storage>SD card
Total space 14.83Gb (aka 16Gb!) and Available space 14.81Gb.

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?

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 :: 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?

Android :: Which Permissions Has To Declare In A App To Get Data From Other?

Aug 4, 2010

I have a doubt

For using Phone contact we have to set permission in manifest file

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.READ_CONTACTS" /> <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_CONTACTS" />

My doubt is where(in which file) it is written in Contact Application that you have to set these permissions. because i want to make a sample application and i want if anyone want to get data from my application, have to get some permission.

Please let me know that where we plan which permission has to get by other application to get data from a application.

Android :: Read Data That Been Separately Copied To Sd Card Without Having Root Permissions?

May 4, 2010

I am developing an application that needs to access data on the sd card. When I run on my development device (an odroid with Android 2.1) I have root access and can construct the path using:

CODE:..........................

However, when I install this on a phone (2.1) where I do not have root access I get files == null. I assume this is because I do not have the right permissions to read the data from the sd card. I also get files == null when just trying to list files on /sdcard. So the same applies without my constructed path.

Also, this app is not intended to be distributed through the app store and is needs to use data copied separately to the sd card so this is a real use-case. It is too much data to put in res/raw (I have tried, it did not work).

I have also tried adding: <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />

To the manifest, even though I only want to read the sd card, but it did not help. I have not found a permission type for reading the storage.

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

Feb 1, 2010

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?

General :: False Text Message Notifications

Jun 5, 2014

Ever since I did the update to Kit Kat or whatever it's called, I've had an issue.

It goes like this. I just received a text message from a 570 number. I click the notification, and it opens to a new text message draft. I click back, to go to my messages, and there's nothing there. Then I close the messaging app, and my text messaging widget has a little 1, signifying I have a text. I even delete all my text messages, and it's still there.

I do know people from the 570 area code, but why am I receiving ghost texts from them, and how do I fix it?

General :: Google Play Store False Insufficient Storage Available Message

Apr 11, 2014

Recently, I have been VERY frustrated with my phone as it is not possible to install ANY apps. I am using a Huawei Ascend G510, unrooted, running Android 4.1.1. I heard something about luckypatcher, but I do not have it nor could I find it on Google Play. Google Play keeps saying "Insufficient storage available". I have over 120 megabites of space for apps. I tried cleaning cache and data but it did not work. What's really weird is that I couldn't even install the app with an apk ! Is a facory reset needed (I hope not, as I can't even install a backup app...) ?

My sero pro produce random false touches when connected to computer via usb cable. That makes it very inconvinient to use for development. It does not have this problem when the cable is not connected. That is most apparent when "Show touches" is turned on in developer settings.

I opened it up looking for loose joints on usb or digitizer ports, but everything seems good with that.

General :: Apps Don't Use New External SD Card For Data

May 1, 2012

When I setup my A100 (running the ICS OTA update), I didn't have an SD card installed. It created it's own "fake" sdcard which applications use.

Now that I've added a real external sdcard, I can't get the applications to use that for their data instead of the "fake" location.

I've copied everything from the "fake" location to the new sdcard.

I suspect the problem is that the new, real sd card is called "external_sd" and the old, "fake" location is called "sdcard".

Do I need to reinstall those applications?

I am NOT trying to move applications to the external SD card; I just wants apps that normally store data there to do so instead of in the "fake" location.

Also, I am not rooted.
