We are plannig to write a new music application from scratch. Also we want to uninstall the built-in music application to ensure only our application resides on the phone. adb ls /data/app command doesn't list built-in applications. So, I am unable to uninstall the built in music application without knowing its name. So, I am getting a feeling like built in applications uninstallation is handled in different way.
I was wondering if anyone knows how to uninstall or permanently disable HTC Hero's built in Peep tweeter application? I never used it and I never will and it keeps restarting itself after I kill it's proccess in Task Killer. Also Application Uninstaller from the Market can't do that either.
I have an empty TextView set for my ListView. When there is no data, it shows the empty text, where I have description that they should go to Contacts application. How can I linkify "Contacts" word so when tapped opens the Contacts application?
I have a Samsung Galaxy S4 running 4.4.2 KitKat. I tried to set the default image, video and documents directories to a folder on the SD card by going to MyFiles -> Settings -> SDCard path. I am taking photos & videos using the default app, not a 3rd party app. Although it is showing me the default is set to the SD card, the images I take using the default camera app all seem to save to the default internal storage /storage/emulated/0/DCIM/Camera.
getting the default image directories to be on the SD card?
I have done many of reverse engineering for other electronics in the past, Since Im new to android I was wondering before even wasting my time if is possible to port, or built a rom from sources or a phone thatis NOT External SD built in to a phone that it have the external sd built in.
Making it short can I try to reverse engineer the android code from a Nexus 5 (no ext_sd) to other device that have ext_sd built in?
If is possible where should I be looking to start trying making some development on this as I haven't done nothing close quite.
Like the Alarm Clock, Calculator, etc. I see that the source is available at : http://source.android.com/ For example, the alarm clock I'm going to modify will "look exactly the same" as the built-in one, but there'll be a lot more functions. Is it legal to extend the functionality of the Alarm Clock and publish it as paid application?
We've rebuilt a couple of our apps with the 1.5 SDK (but targeting 1.1).
The Market seems to have a bit of trouble with the background of the icons. They appear correctly (with transparent backgrounds) on the desktop, and they appear correctly when the app is downloaded from the Market and installed on the device.
However, they appear on black (not transparent) backgrounds in the Market uploader web page, and in the Market application on the device.
It looks to me as though the Market has a problem when it extracts the icon from the .apk at upload time, with .apks built by the 1.5 SDK.
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?
Is there a way to block or remove built in applications on an android phone. I want to limit what you can do on the phone e.g. only call, text, email and use one or two third party applications. Is it possible to do that without rooting the phone?
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?
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.
