Motorola Droid X :: Hide Superuser Permissions Icon
Sep 22, 2010
I forgot to unroot before hitting the OTA. Although I lost root in the process, I still have the SuperUser Permissions icon in my app tray. Is there a way to hide the icon without having to root and remove it manually?
I have the app "Superuser Permissions" BUT I don't see it in the Market as even existing. Also, I have been more seeing people mentioning "Superuser" app recently - like OMJ. Well, when you search "Superuser Permissions" in the Market they show the app "Superuser" and not "Superuser Permissions".. what's up with that? So, I tried to download "Superuser", but I get a Failed Installation app.
I installed Superuser Permissions before the 2.1 software was released. I have wiped my phone twice and I still can't get the app to come off my phone. I also went to manage apps and the Uninstall button is not highlighted. I need to do a warranty claim too. I have been trying since March to find somewhere how to uninstall this.
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 was messing around with my phone being bored and went into the superuser permissions app. I was looking at all the entries that were in there and I know that it's just a list of permissions you've allowed on your phone. Anyway I wanted to see what would happen if I clicked on one of them. Well it cleared it from the list and I just clicked on all of them so when I'm in the SU app there is nothing there. Now when I try and get into one of my apps that require permission it tells me it requires root and doesn't have permission. So it looks like I blocked all permissions for my rooted apps. The question is how do I get it back? I'm sure I can just reflash a nandroid backup I have but I was wondering if there is any other way?
So I rooted my Droid and Superuser Permissions appeared. I looked up how to unroot and it just said to manually update to 2.0.1 (I was obviously up to 2.0.1 already) and I did, and I was hoping Superuser Permissions would disappear, but it didn't.
I have to bring my DX to verizon for something and I cant get rid of the Superuser Ninja I used easyroot to root my phone, I have titainium backup and busybox. I need my phone to show NO TRACES of being rooted.
I had my Evo rooted with Unrevoked and then it stopped working when I did the OTA update (I believe this happened for everybody). So then I uninstalled Unrevoked and I saw that Superuser Permissions was still there in the apps list, so I uninstalled that too. But now I think I want Superuser Permissions back, but it didn't get installed when I tried to install Unrevoked again. How can I get it back? Also, am I correct that it was bundled along with Unrevoked when I installed it the first time, or is it park of the Android OS?
1. Rooted 2.1, then 2. OTA Stock Update to 2.2, then 3. Seem to have lost root, However - I still have the Superuser Permissions Icon.
I use Barnacle for WiFi Tether - I get a "Permission Denied" error when I try to start the application. I also went into the terminal emulator and tried an "su" which also gave a permission denied response. I tried "sudo" and also got permission denied response. Others have told me this is common with this progression of events. However, How do I now ROOT 2.2 in this scenario?
I have an HTC Hero on the Sprint network and I'm currently trying to root it. I follow the instructions according to this guide. Root your HTC Hero CDMA Stock Android 2.1 | Gadgets DNA. and i get to step 9 and enter what I am supposed to. The problem is that when I go to my app tray there is not application for Superuser permissions... I have pushed all the indicated files to my sdcard and nothing.
I'm having trouble with my superuser app and wireless tethering. I just flashed a new rom (xtrSENSE) and successfully set up tethering on my phone. However, I think I screwed something up after that. I allowed permission for access, and went back in to the superuser app later, clicked on the corresponding line and it disappeared. When I went back in to tether my phone today, it transferred to the SU app and promptly froze, later force closing. Every attempt since has had the same result.
I have tried changing several settings and even flashed a new rom (aloysius) to try to fix it. I have no idea what I did, but it freezes then force closes every time I try to get into the SU app. The only thing i can imagine I did is click on the permission but I don't know how that can screw things up. Anyone know what I did or have suggestions to fix? I'm really missing tethering. Thanks!
Went back to an old nandroid backup and restarted my phone... all better now. No idea what the problem was, but it clearly was user error. Sorry to clutter up the boards.
Well I've been messing with app inventor and I'm comfortable with it now and would like to make an app that uses superuser permissions. To add to plainjane. But haven't found out how to call the su app let alone how to implement it with app inventor. how to call and maybe how to implement it to app inventor?
On G5 and Modaco RC3 every time my phone starts up, it'll ask if Titanium Backup can have superuser. If I look at the permissions list, I can see the apps I've allowed. But, every time I run them, it prompts. This happens when any app wants su.I've tried changing the option in Superuser to Toast as someone suggested on another forum but that has not fixed it.
After rooted my Galaxy S, everything work fine except one problem that I need help.
Under Superuser Permissions, I have seen a very long log, and there is no way to delete or celar them off my Galaxy s. For sure it will take up storage memory. No clear log option in Settings of Superuser Permission 2.3.4.
Any friend here can tell me how can I delete or clear this Superuser log? So that it won't eat up my storage space.
My Sprint HTC hero is rooted running Fresh 2.1.2 and whenever I open superuser or try to run an app that requires root I just get a black screen that says (Su Request) at the top and it just stays their and does nothing. Any takers on how to actually launch the program that requires root or what to do with this screen?
I recently awoke my Galaxy Nexus (takju) from the lockscreen; inadvertently pressing the key combo [vol-up + vol-down + power] initiating a 'Bug Report' (dumpstate) command
Upon entering the Homescreen I was seeing the infamous 'shell has been granted Superuser permissions' toast ~2 seconds apart which lasted ~2 minutes, subsequently vibrating and opening a new message in Gmail containing 2 files - bugreport-date-time.txt and Screenshot_date-time.png (Sent from BugMailer).
This 'toast' has been reported in various device forums/threads and I thought this may shed some light; whether it was a dumpstate command initiated by an inadvertent key combo (as in my case) or a system/app crash bugreport.
If you have experienced this 'toast', check your internal storage (sdcard) for the - /sdcard/bugreports/bugreport.txt and /sdcard/Pictures(in JB)/Screenshot/Screenshot.png - the timestamp of the dump should be in the filenames.
So my phone is rooted and I want to know if when I run an antivirus will it show my root or apps as viruses if they have superuser permissions? Because when I run antivirus it shows several viruses. If I clean them idk what it will do. And when I say several I mean like 50 to 100 files show infections.
superuser permissions not working. i've already wiped and reflashed fresh 2.1.1. when i try to open superuser permissions all i see is a black screen. also when i use htc sense, it seems to suck up battery really fast but it runs smooth. but when i switch to the nexus launcher it takes a while to load up all the icons on the main screen. i've tried to search but it seems like the search is not accurate in hunting down the threads for me because when i try to create this thread, i see more similar threads than just simply searching for it through the top right search box.
I am wanting to know if a developer has the ability to choose not to display the permissions needed for an app they create. For an example if there is a note taking app in the market that says no permissions needed, but in reality, it does have "internet access"capabilities not shown to the user/downloader, Is it possible for App permissions to be hidden and not displayed to the user? Can someone explain to me the process on assigning and displaying permissions on android apps?
I have an application which launch automatically after the booting finished,but the application icon is displayed in the android emulator.Now i want to hide that icon from the user.So that the user cannot know from the application is lanuch and they cannot launch that application manually.
I was wondering, is there anyway a developer can hide or exclude a certain app permissions from being seen by Android market users? And are the permissions for an app controlled or regulated by Google? Another question I have - Is there anyway to restrict PDF files from opening in the default browser? This is a problem when I am on a search engine and accidentally click a link that's a pdf file- I don't want pdf's downloaded without asking me permission atleast. And my last question, is there a way to view current extensions that are installed in the browser.? Where is androids inbuilt file manager? Does uninstalling an application completely take off everything related to that app from your phone?
Make it so you can actually read and tell which apps you have given permissions to. It worked fine installing with clockwork but I had to actually do it from recovery. I tried it first using rom manager cause I am lazy and it failed. Not sure why.It works for me on cyanogenmod 18.104.22.168 but Im not sure it works on other roms. Probably best to clear all your current permissions before flashing this.
A while back I decided to root my droid. Before doing so I decided to learn up a bit on DOS/Linux commands to sort of understand what the heck was being typed when I looked at what others did to their rooted droids. So I rooted the droid, hid all of those unnecessary apps, and even flashed 2.1 onto it. 2.1 was cool but with Sweeter Home 2 beta almost out I reverted back to 2.0.1 to use that instead.Now just today I decided to start all over, I wanted to revert my droid back to stock, fresh out of the box. Hell I even had to re-activate. But one thing remains, the damn Superuser app that appears. It just wont go away. What gives?
