How can i hide an app from the app drawer?In the threads i read and searched for they all said it can be done with root access, but no one ever says how it can be done.As a side note, I still want to have access to the app using keyboard shortcuts.I have tried home replacement apps, but they are so unstable. I also tried "App Vault", but this doesn't let you access the app while it is hidden.Can anyone help me please?
Ok, I've searched the forums a bit and found a couple other folks with the same problem as I have. I picked up my droid yesterday and synced it to my gmail, and facebook. Pulled every single contact from both, sweet! Except there were some I didn't care to have in my phonebook..shoot. So I was going through and "Deleting" the ones I didn't want, and as they were facebook contacts it just hid them from me. I know they are still there, as I exported my vCard to gmail and looked through the contacts. I see the ones I want (and don't want) in there so they exsist..but I can't find where to set them to show in my contacts list again. I tried just re-adding them to my contacts, but that didn't really work either..anything short of factory resetting my phone that I can do to fix my flubup?
I'm rooted, so I was wondering if anyone had a way to use the 2.1 app drawer on the droid? I've seen home replacement apps that will do this, but I'd REALLY prefer if there was a workaround to that, since everytime I've used one of those it's slowed down the phone considerably.
I'm having a small problem which is sort of annoying. No it's really annoying.Every once in a while I'll click on my app drawer and it's completely blank.Closing it and reopening it doesn't seem to work. I have to wait about ~1 minute for it to start working again.Also, when I wake my phone up and unlock it, I can't swipe to a different screen for about 10 seconds after I unlock the phone.It's also rather annoying.Has anyone ran into these problems and have a solution?I did some searching on here and the only thing I could find was this issue with people who are running different ROM's.I am running stock.
I searched for this on the Droid X forum and didn't quickly find an answer. I also googled to see if there was any widget that you could place on a home screen to display apps (not hidden by LP Plus), but didn't really find anything I really was looking for with that either.
Moderators please move this if this has been discussed many times and my search criteria was just bad.
I'm looking for a widget for my last home page I need to finish customizing that will give me the ability to look at my App Drawer (the Apps I use frequently and want to display with LP Plus - while hiding ones I don't want to show up).
With my G1 it was possible to hide apps from the drawer, but I can't remember if that was something somone enable via a ROM or a separate app. Anyone with a Droid able to leave an app installed and fully functional, but hide it so it doesn't show up in the app drawer?
I have this icon in my app drawer and have no idea where it came from or what it belongs to. It looks like a figure wearing a ninja suit holding a rifle and it says superuser permissions under it. When I click on it all that shows up is a black screen and brings up nothing when I press the menu key. Any ideas on what it's from and how to remove it.
i've searched around here trying a find an answer and I can't seem to find anything. I was wondering if there was a way to take the applications that are in the drawer and move them to a folder. I don't like that fact that I have all these applications in the drawer, it gets too congested. I would just like to put them in a folder on on of my home screens so its a little bit more cleaned up...
I downloaded universal androot and rooted my phone. I then immediately un-rooted my phone and rebooted.Now I can't delete the superuser permissions app from my app drawer?? Plus I cant delete universal androot?Plus since I un-rooted will I receive the OTA update to 2.2?
I have a 2.2 Froyo Droid X not-rooted and I really don't want to root it. I've pretty much figured how to create shortcuts with custom icons, and I'm using Launcher Pro and Desktop Visualizer for the shortcuts that are not on my dock... what I want to know is, can I customize without rooting the icons of the applications themselves or no?
I noticed after doing a restore to Rubix 1.6 when I tried to access Settings they would not show nor was the Setting icon in my app drawer. Is this just a bad restore or is the Nandroid corrupted? I'm running DarkSlide v3 just fine right now just trying to figure out if my RubiX 1.6 nandroid is crap or not.
I was wondering, is there a leaked 2.1 app drawer file that i can download ? I already have the the new 2.1 gallery and I love it!! I really don't want to root my phone, I just want a few 2.1 goodies before the official release.
I downloaded SOMETHING in my 1st week Droid owner downloading frenzy. It said something about using the camera button to take a screenshot "but don't forget to turn it off when you are finished" Now pushing the cam button gives me a presestent "screenshot failed" message that hangs there for minutes on the screen, I don't remember the name of the app, have looked CAREFULLY thru all the apps installed to no avail, nothing like that is shownig in TasKiller, nothing in the download list.Driving me crazy. Maybe it was some part of something else I turned on? Ring any bells with anyone?
Was given advice to hide app from Droid (build:5) until fully compatible by doing this in androidmanifest : <uses-sdk android:maxSdkVersion="4" />
However the android:maxSdkVersion tag is only available if compiling using sdk 1.6.I heard that compiling using 1.6 will hide my app from users who are still on 1.5 (still a few i can see).But I want 1.5 and 1.6 users still to see the app just not 2.0 - how can I achieve this?
I would like to be able to hide certain pictures from my friends when they are playing with my phone. I don't want to install an application for this. Awhile back, I remember reading in a thread (could not find it in the search) that one could change the name of the file a certain way and it would not show up. Ring a bell to anyone?
My phone keeps saying "low disc space"..I dont have too many apps installed on here..but it says I only have 35 mbs of free space on my internal memory...my sd card has a bunch of space.
But ive tried installing a couple of apps in the past that the htc couldnt handle (need for speed shift) and a couple of larger racing games. But the apps arent in my app lists..I just didnt know if maybe they were hiding in a different part of my phone and maybe thats whats eating up all of the space on my phone.
I've copied my existing contacts from my sim (same sim as last phone, this was an upgrade). How do I tell the Desire to either a) Only use the phone contacts or b) Hide the sim contacts? I currently have two entries for each contact when I tap the phone button.
I'm trying to develop an application that should not be visible to the user. I mean an app that can't be visible at the Manage Apps screen (Settings - Applications - Manage applications) and also whose services couldn't either be visible at the Running Services screen (Settings - Applications - Running services)I know I'm trying to fight against Android's nature of being open and give control to the user. But I want, somehow, to cheat the system and pretend the app does not run and even does not exist. Is that possible?
Is there any apps out there that could hide an incoming call from a preselected number so that when the number calls my phone, it will not be put on hold or disconnected, just ringing but not showing up on my screen?
