Motorola Droid :: Removing Applications From Drawer
Jan 6, 2010
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 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 have a rooted Droid X running the 2.2 leak. I want to remove apps by renaming them to .bak files but I can't seem to do it with root explorer. Can someone help me manually rename the files by providing a list of comment prompt inputs?
Today several of my applications are showing twice in the drawer. Barcode Scanner, ASTRO File Manager, Barcode Scanner, Dildroid, Imeem Mobile all show up x2 in my drawer. Does anybody know why or how to fix this?
I have finally figured out how to root and flash new roms. I have the xtrSense and love it. But my question is this. How do I remove some of the apps at were included on the rom (ie.- amazon mp3, original calculator, footprints)? These are apps that I don't and/or won't use and can't see wasting the disk space.
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.
There are so many apps in the market and I don't trust all of them. Is there a way to remove some permissions of the already compiled APK? It doesn't matter if I cannot sign it anymore with the original certificate of the developer. And is there also a way to add an error-handler into the .apk-file, so that the errors of the requested permissions will also be suppressed?
Now I've got my Desire rooted can I start removing the default apps which are install like peep and footprint which I never use? Also is it possible to do this via a windows machine or will I need to be using a linux boot disc / image?
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?
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 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've got almost everything streamlined for DE03 but I keep seeing two Apps that always reload in Advanced Task Manager: com.samsung.internal, and System Updates First question, since I'm not using Sprint's version of software, do I *need* either of these? And, if *not*...what are the names of the files, so I can rip 'em out?
