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 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 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.
app similar to the original smart actions that has the ability to turn off data and location services during the night?? Currently in use battery widget fee born, that does everything except for location services.
Once you have turned on GPS, when you turn it off later, sometimes it doesn't really turn-off even if the quick setting tile says it is turned off.
I turned GPS on, opened Tinder, used it for few minutes, closed it and turned off GPS, removed Tinder from recent apps.
Next night, I see Tinder is the top battery consumer, with 1 day 9 hours of GPS use. GPS shows up as ON the entire time in the battery graph; while GPS tile is "off" in quick settings as well as locations services is also set to off.
I had seen exactly similar GPS hogging from Facebook and Maps too.
This exact same thing happens with Wi-Fi too. I had turned off Wi-Fi at night before going to sleep. But after returning from work the next day, I see in the battery graph that the Wi-Fi was on for the entire 17+ hours. And it still showed as "Off" in Quick settings tile and Wi-Fi settings page. The Wi-Fi definitely wasn't ON since as soon as I turned it on via QuickSetting tile, I got a flood of notifications. But there was considerable amount of battery drain, which is unusual when everything is off. Makes me think that the Wi-Fi was in fact ON. So, when I had turned Wi-Fi off at night, the phone only disconnected from the hotspot but still remained on.
Nexus 5 - running stock 4.4.2 with Xposed and latest Linaro. Galaxy Nexus - running AOKP 4.4.2 nightly with Franco; no xposed.
[BUG TRACKER] Issue #64998 - The GPS bug was already reported by someone else in the Android project bug tracker. But it has low priority there and doesn't look like it will get addressed anytime soon.
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.
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 had to get my Evo replaced today and I used ASTRO and MyBackup Pro to backup my apps to my SD Card. After installing them onto my new Evo, I went to the Market and then to Downloads, and they don't show up there. How am I suppose to know when I will have an update?
I downloaded launcher pro and switch pro apps. Then I installed a non-market app I got from xda (gallery3d if it matters). After installing that app, launcher pro required a force quit. Now I have my switch pro widget near the bottom of the screen on the home screen. When launcher pro reloaded and put back all my widgets, it looks like it sort of mirrored the switch app on the bottom, behind the dock where the phone and contacts buttons are. It's sort of half on and half off the screen. I can't long press on it, or interact with it in any way. I have tried reloading the switch pro widget, but that doesn't do anything. I have also tried restarting launcher pro, which also has no effect. Rebooting the phone also does not solve. Weird, huh? What do you all think?
Over the last 6 months, I've bought several applications through the market without any problems. Yesterday, I bought Camera Zoom FX which downloaded just fine. But after downloading, it's been stuck at "Installing." in the Download-section of my Market. It sais "Purchased" in the upper right corner (as usual) and I've received the receipt through e-mail. I tried to install another app afterwards, and that worked just fine. Its about 24 hours since I purchased the app now, but it's still trying to install. I've rebooted the phone at least 5 times, cleared the Market-cache before and after rebooting. I've even tried to remove my SD-card just in case.If I click and hold the application in the Market-app, the only choice I get is "Details", not "Uninstall" and the other options I usually get. When I go to the apps details, the button at the bottom is greyed out and says "Installing..". This means I can't cancel the installation or choose uninstall.
My Hero has the official 2.1 version (fully updated) without root or other modifications.I've looked through the forum several times, including what seems to be relevant posts, but I can't seem to find any real solution for this problem. Anyone know how I can fix this? I think it's really strange that Android doesn't have any form of time-out or something for this..
I'm really new to the Android world and just got the Hero a couple of days ago and it is overwhelming on what this phone can do but I'm not sure if its the phone for me.I love the Market app and have downloaded a lot of apps just to try them out and now I have so many that I would like to remove some of them but I can't figure out how to do this. I have searched the User's Guide but haven't found anything in it unless I missed it but need some help here, so how do you remove apps and games from this phone?
are the apps being downloaded to the sd card or the phone itself? if it's the latter, is there a way that the apps we downloaded and future downloads can be moved to the sd card?i'm worried that my phone will start to lag once it's almost full in the phone's memory.
I downloaded the 'Goggles' app from Android Market to my HTC Legend, and I want to completely remove it from the phone.I have gone through the settings of the phone trying to find a way, and there doesn't seem to be an option to delete it by pressing 'Menu'.
I've tried downloading a few apps from the market and they seem to download fine but when they start to install it fails every single time. I've tried clearing the cache of the market then force closeing and rebooting phone and I read that launching google talk could help that hasnt either. The apps in particular are "Angry Birds" and "Baseball Superstarts 2010" both are the full versions. I want to get Angry Birds before it isnt free anymore. Also I am rooted on Clockwork Rom with KingxKernal BFS. And all other apps and updates download and install fine which is really odd.
