I am relatively new to posting here, but have been reading the posts here for quite some time. Thanks for the great info that you all provide.
I have 2 questions about the All Programs screen ......
Is there a way to re-arrange the order of the way the apps are arranged on this page ? If so, how?
Secondly, how can I remove apps off of the All Programs screen ? I know that apps that I download from The Market will disappear once they have been 'uninstalled', but what about anything else such as "Amazon MP3", "Visual Voicemail", "Stocks", etc. ?
These are things (apps listed above ) I have NO interest in, but they crowd up my All Programs screen and force me to do a lot more scrolling (due to not being able to re-arrange my most used apps on this page, SO FAR).
How do you delete a program or widget from one of the screens on the DI? I also have twitter on one whole screen, but want to replace it with FB and and I cannot figure out how the heck to get rid of it!
I'm using KaosFroyo v.32 and wanted to delete some included apps I don't use. I tried deleting the Twitter app using root explorer. I went into system>app, switched to Mount to R/W and deleted Twitter.apk--- however, when I go into manage applications, it's still listed there. Did I do something wrong?
So I went and did things the hard way (Asian Level Root).
Root was obviously a success, but now I can't get rid of 2 of 3 of the Chinese programs that got installed. The only program I was able to get rid of was the Shuame market app.
Trying to remove/uninstall any other programs ( KingUser.apk and PinyinIME.apk, et al) via Titanium Backup just results in a screen depicting Andy on his back, front open, big red triangle on top of him.
The tablet does reboot by itself after a minute, but the programs remain.
I did reset the tablet to no effect.
Specs: HP Slate 7, Android 4.1.1, Kernel 3.0.8+, Rooted (obviously).
I notice certain games or applications. I download end up running in the background. Once I open up the "advanced task manager" or a free one I kill all the applications running and I notice over time or an hour the application come back up as running in the background? Any way to kill them any make them not come back? Just trying to get the phone to run smoother.
Also I have handcent SMS and notice that the regular messenger still is running even after I force close it it's still running. I can't un-install the normal messenger. Is there a way to get handcent SMS to be default or make that one run only and have the other one never run in the background?
When I boot my Eris, I have noticed many unneccesary programs open, some in which I never use at all...I found this information in Advanced Task Manager by the way. How do I disable programs from starting up on my Droid Eris?
I am constantly finding programs running on my phone, regardless of what I've used. For instance, "Easy tether", which I never use while in town, would come up as "running". "Where's my droid", which have not used since installing 2 months ago... or "Voice dialer? What makes things run, when they haven't been used?
Is there an app out there that will not just stop a program from starting up but from running at all? I have to continually kill progs like Footprints (or something), Amazon mp3 store, etc. I'd like to streamline the phone and only have programs running that are essential.
I keep getting the "web page not available" screen when I try to load up a page through a program such as word wrench or world war, even when I'm connected with wifi. Been trying to find an answer for this but no luck.
I've got a Droid 1 and am rooted w/BB rom. I was under the impression that I could go to my file manager and delete any apps, including native apps. However, the core or native apps list isn't available to me. How do I access and edit this list?
So I have a 3 year old Droid Incredible. The older it gets, the worse it responds to basic tasks. Today, I turned on my phone, only to get several error messages from Google related apps saying they have failed to start.
So I tried clicking on some Google apps, like Google Maps. The icon was replaced by this:
In fact, all of the Google related apps were like this. I tried selecting Google maps, only to get an instant force stop message. Soon afterwards, all of the Google apps disappeared, including YouTube. Google Play and Google Search widget have both been replaced by Failure to Load Gadget messages. I tried looking for any signs of anything Google related, with no luck. I restarted my phone, I cleared caches, and I unmounted and remounted my SD card for some reason. No dice.
I have a stock HTC Incredible. I have done nothing like unrooting to it. What could be the cause of the apps disappearing?
Any1 been able to do fun and exciting things to improve the android experience and/or fix bugs using Terminal editors, and the programs stored in /System/Bin? I've been playing around with some of them basically just looking @ command syntax for the different programs. Some of them seem promising, and some of them look like they can make ur eris into a stylish paperweight. One app i actviated was $ Toolbox, the only thing this did was echo back Toolbox! in the termina editor lol. Ive seen posts where ppl used dmesg to find out how the internal memory was partitioned. I'll admit i'm a total linux shell newb, but playing around with it is fun for me.
I was reading one of these threads, and someone mentioned that there was a way to stop apps from opening on launch.I have apps that randomly open by themselves and i want to prevent them from doing so. (VLC Remote, default messages, and a few others)I've posted enough good points that if this was said already i can get a freebee :P
I am fairly new to the Eris, and have had pretty good luck with battery life, until a couple days ago. I take it off the charger, and an hour later I am down to 80%. No WiFi, no GPS on, etc. I check with ATK and find Browser, Music, Mail, etc. all open. So, today after I took the Eris off its charger, I reboot it, then check ATK, kill any open programs, and go about my day.
2 hours later, I look, and my battery is at 74%! So I open ATK, and there is all these programs open again, and all I have done in that 2 hours is send a couple texts. The only change I made recently is I installed PandaHome, didn't really like any of the themes, and uninstalled it all. Could it have left something behind that is opening programs?
Whenever i enter a new contact they stay in my phone for about a minute and then i go back to my "people" page and they have disappeared (i see them for a second, then they disappear) They are contacts i have entered manually. all of the contacts show up on my gmail page. but they arent on my phone. I have tried it with syncing on and off. same thing happens. So i am just trying to get some info on this before i try a factory reset(dont really want to)
when i trying to remove widgets off the screen it starts shaking crazy after trying to hold it down and then it shows me all 7 screens. does anyone else have this problem ? im trying to make my eris look cool.
I created a Ringtone from a MP3 File on my SD Card. It shows up as a ringtone in the list. I'm trying to delete the Ringtone, but I can't figure out how. I even deleted the MP3 off the SD Card, but the Ringtone still exists. Where is it stored and how can I delete it?
I am having a problem with my emails in the native Eris email app deleting after a few days. I have tried every setting that I can think of to get this to stop but no luck. The Gmail app does not delte the messages like the nmative app does. I have the native app set up with my work email and I need to keep messages around until I delete them. Just to stress have no problems with Gmail deleting just the native app which I have set up exclusively to my work email.
When I first turned it on, I was able to delete emails by checking a box to the left of them (like how it looks on my computer). This way I could delete several at a time. Now when I open my gmail, I need to open each email individually in order to delete it. Is there a way to change this?
