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 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.
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?
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 came to the conclusion that i have too many apps, lol. so i went to start deleting some of them through the market>my downloads, and uninstalling them one by one. I was just wondering if there is a way to mass uninstall these apps instead of one by one...?
I know you can remove those bogus stock apps by rooting the hero but I have a slightly different question that I couldn't find in other threads. I am interested in rooting my hero just to remove the bloatware and then unroot the phone back to its original ROM. I am not a huge fan of tinkering with my electronics because it voids warranties, possibly bricks devices, and causes trouble with firmware updates, but it really ticks me off that sprint forces these apps on us and then makes them impossible to uninstall. Imagine getting a new PC and not being able to remove crap like wild tangent and the 20 free trials for programs you don't want or need. I know this isn't news to anyone here, but every time I see that Nascar app I get irritated. Seriously sprint? Nascar? Anyway, my questions are 1.) is root/unroot possible to remove bloat and return to original state 2.) has anyone had success uninstalling pieces of the bloat without rooting? I don't want to uninstall anything integral to the phone like the stock messages app, but Nascar has gots to go!
I rooted my phone for the first time yesterday. I have not yet flashed any ROM's, all I have done so far is remove some of the stock apps. I have lost my data connection a couple times today, usually a reboot will solve it, however it hasn't on one or two occasions. It seems to have started happening after changing my boot animation to something closer to the 1.5 boot animation. Is it possible that this new boot animation is causing my data connection problems.
Is anyone aware of a listing of apps that require Android 2.1 to run (e.g. apps like Google Goggles, etc.)? I've searched the threads here at Android Forums and elsewhere and haven't been able to find such a list or site.
Now that I upgraded to 2.1, I'd like to "see what I've been missing" and take advantage of the new OS.
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.
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 see a few "uninstall apps" on the market and I am wondering why there are such applications. Uninstalling an app from the phone is not that complicated and it is quite fast. Maybe my question is silly but I am very new to Android. I know that Windows for example does not uninstall programs properly, and one needs often a third party program to really make a clean uninstall. Is that the same with Android, or do these apps just make it faster to uninstall an app (with the same result that one will get with a "uninstall" process through the apps manager)?
I am having trouble removing apps. I go to "All apps", touch and hold on the app I want to delete until the front page comes up with the trash can saying remove. I drag it over top of it and let go. But then I go check, and it still shows up on the "All apps" page. What am I missing/doing wrong?
I have a desire from The Carphone warehouse. unbranded. but it has preloaded apps on it. stock, facebook and some other crap. is there anyway at all of uninstalling them plz. I'm pretty anal about having things running in the backgroud and fed up of FC them.
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.
3 days ago I purchased a brand new factory unlocked Moto G in Pakistan. The problem is, whenever I try to uninstall any app I downloaded off the Play Store the phone shuts down and then the start-up screen is displayed after which the phone restarts back to the unlock screen. I did a complete reset to factory settings but the problem still persists. The version of Android is 4.4.2
Most procedures refer to uninstalling an app altogether. The following procedure claims to allow for disabling: Apps screen > touch 3 dots in right corner > select uninstall/disable apps > click on "-" sign for desired app. However, I only get an option to uninstall no disable?
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?
