There are some stock apps that come with my phone that I really dont need like google play magazines. Is there any app i can download that i can totally uninstall programs liek this from my phone I do not need.
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?
I want to kill some apps, like calculator, that I have replaced and don't want. Here are the commands (in both Terminal and ADB): su # rm /system/app/Calculator.apk rm: remove '/system/app/Calculator.apk'?y rm: can't remove '/system/app/Calculator.apk': Read-only file system # Notice the "su" command. It shouldn't be read-only. I really want to unclutter my app drawer. The build is Cyanogen Mod-6-07252010-NIGHTLY-Inc.
Well I'm a newbie dinc user and I love this phone! But I hav some issues tht I hav to solve or I'll hav to get the Droid x or Droid 2 when it comes out next week.
I'm getting terrible signal. Everybody around me is getting like full bars and I barely have 1 maybe 2. Is there anything i can do to help this?
2nd is how do I uninstall the stock apps like cityid and fm radio? So maybe tht will help the pathetic battery life. And also which is the best extended battery to get both the same size and the larger, like what brands?
I installed the modded playstore on my Stock Galaxy S4 ROM so I could disable self-updates, but it didn't work. When I went to uninstall the cracked play store launcher, it still said I had the cracked play store. I used TBP to restore the play store/google services framework to an older point and then I wiped the Delvik cache, but when I rebooted it said I still had the cracked version.
I have ClockworkMod recovery but I didn't do a nandroid backup before I installed the cracked play store, and I don't want to factory reset my phone.
So my Samsung Galaxy S4 was delivered yesterday and I set it up like normal only to find a lot of pre-installed apps. The problem I am having is that I can't uninstall them. So my question is how do I uninstall an app like that?
I've Tried Breaking the Market Links, I've Uninstalled Every App on my Dumbass phone, I've Restored Nandroid Backups that "Were" working Fine!I've Tried to go to the Android Market from my Web Browser, Logged in but Can't figure out how to Uninstall apps that it says are Installed under my Email, but they Aren't...
It's Remembering apps from Two of my Previous phones and Also from my Current phone when I Switched my Build.prop information! 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?
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.
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?
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?
Is possible to uninstall factory apps with root access.But, ADB have 'root' command that give root access to the terminal what you are in, so, in this case, factory apps can be uninstalled by androig debugger with root acces?
On my Desire i have chompsms and the stock message app installed. When i receive a text it notifies me 2 times and opens up the message in the both apps. Is there anyway to uninstall the stock messaging app that comes with the desire?
l uninstalled Google Search and Google Play store apps, but they were not completely uninstalled and now I can't reinstall them because the store says they are installed. I cannot find them on my android tablet and so I cannot use them. What is a good app to completely uninstall them. Some of these apps will not install on my Lenovo tablet.
I want to use textinput-tng.apk from Android 2.3.4 in ICS (I have Xperia Mini Pro SK17i with Ported and working ICS ROM).I tried to install it normally but it did not worked so i tried to copy in /system/app with proper permission but it did not worked.I want to use gesture input method for English language.
I am looking to find out how to uninstall the apps that came with my htc evo. Like Friend stream and bookmarks. and other apps i will never use to free up some memory. It i go to settings > application . there is no where to remove app.
I introduced myself as a "digital dog" barking for "Apps! And so I quickly filled my Hero until getting a notice saying it's too full with only 15MB left. Trouble is, I'd like to add even more. So is there a way to make room in my phone (not my SD card) other than uninstalling? I don't think it's possible to move apps to my spacious card and link them, right? I'm still going through the apps to see which ones work and fit into my life, and don't want to uninstall any just yet. Is there another way?
Well i figured out how to uninstall apps. kind of. when i goto manage apps, there is a button for uninstall but i can't click it it's greyed out. it's the amazon mp3 app. it came with the phone. how to get rid of this? also how to you delete it. Uninstall and deleting are different things.
I rooted (using Kingo root) Memo Pad 8 (ME180A) and deleted many bloatwares. The problem is that I also deleted Gallery app which is connected to Camera. So I factory reset via both Settings->Backup and reset and Power+Volume up button. But the deleted apps weren't restored, still missing.
Unrooting and doing factory reset can fix this problem? Or should I download stock firmware or stock Gallery app? I couldn't find stock apps and firmware.
ok, since im one of the rare few that actually dredge the sidekick forums, and found there is no rom for it thats stock without the bloatware. how do you remove the useless APK's and get it to work on a phone?
