Dec 2, 2010
to remove the apps i know you have to root and have something like root explorer but when i delete the app it returns when i close root explorer i have tried many programs and all the something. anyone know why this is and how to do it?
I titanium backup on my captivate and i backed up all the at&t preinstalled apps on my sd card (navigator, maps, radio,etc).i was wondering if i uninstall them will it mess up my captivate?? i wanna freeze them but u have to pay 4.00 for the other version and im trying to stay cheap and if i uninstall them can i put them back on using the backup?
So there are a bunch of apps that I have no desire to see on a regular basis. This is my first android phone (coming from a BB) and I could usually remove apps from the listing of core apps in the desktop software, but haven't learned how to do this with the Android OS. The specific apps I'm talking about are the ones that came on the phone like Twitter, Flickr, and Peep.
How do you remove that annoying Samsung Galaxy S bookmark? Is there a file to delete since you cannot remove it through the phone? Go to browser. Go to bookmarks. See that one? Click on it. Enjoy what you see for the last time. Then go to bookmarks again. Click the last tab "history" on top. Find that galaxshelp entry in there, and it would have a yellow star to it, meaning that the history entry is bookmarked. Hit the star to un-bookmark. You are done.
I have found that the Samsung App "Daily Briefing" is a real memory hog and since I don't really use it (now) - is there a way I can disable it? I have removed it from the main screen but it still shows up in Taskiller so somehow it is launching itself in the back.
Having had my samsung for a whole week, and having gone mad downloading everything, its time to stop. I downloaded the entire Star Wars series onto the phones memory, and am now bored with them.I cannot find a way to remove them from the phone and yet keep my family pictures etc. Is there a way to access the internal SD card and remove just selected stuff.
Though Galaxy S has got the gorgeous Super AMOLED display and good GPU which is capable of 50FPS, I dont see a whole lot of games developed by Premium Game makers (like EA, Game loft). Also, any game playable with Android 2.1 is compatible with Galaxy S or do we need games specifically developed for Galaxy S?
Brand new Samsung Galaxy Rugby from Rogers, rooted it and began removing bloatware via Titanium Backup. I backed up and uninstalled Samsung Home, then I uninstalled SNS 1.0 without backing up. One of these two are now causing my BRAND NEW phone to not boot up anymore. It just gets stuck at the Samsung loading screen.
I have gone into recovery mode and wiped data and factory reset, which will get me to the Android startup wizard, but after it's completed, it crashes and I get Android with no Home launcher. Completely unusable...
What can I do?! There doesn't seem to be any custom firmwares for this phone yet, so is there something generic I can use to put either stock Android on it or a custom ROM in place of this broken Samsung ROM?
I wish there was something I could do with the launcher backups in my TitaniumBackup folder on my SDcard. I *can* access that...
My husband has a Samsung Galaxy S and has noticed some applications pre-installed on the phone that he doesn't want.However he can't delete them! They don't appear in his list of applications.He's tried going into applications, menu, edit. But only some of the applications (and not the ones he wants to get rid of) have the red no entry sign.
When connecting my Galaxy-S to the Samsung Kies software, my telephone shows up with an incorrect telephone number. I did change the sim-card (and subsequent number) since first using it, but I never logged intio Kies with the old sim-card.The phone is rooted.How do I get Kies (or my Samsung phone) to show my current telephone number?In the phone properties (Menu, Settings, About, Status) the same wrong number is shown.When calling, the receiver sees the correct telephone number. So the issue is not operator related but telephone related.
I bought the Centura a few days ago. Decided to download music to my 32G card. THOUGHT that's what I did, but now, I see that I've filled up the RAM, too! How can I remove the 2.16 G of music from my USB storage without having to purge everything else?
I have a brand-new SGS GT-I9000 (in Romania),but for now I don't have anymobile internet connection.But I want to install apps on my phone,and I know it's possible with SDK Android.So I installed SDK Android (last version has USB driver included,so I installed it too from SDK) and.I don't know what to do next.First of all, do I need another driver to be installed for my SGS (the drivers for SGS were installed with Kies, I presume)?And then, how do I connect phone in USB mode and , especially, how to use command prompt (I'm a dummy on that thing?? When I open command prompt, it's a screen with "c:>" - how can I erase this from command prompt and type adb install etc.?)Please explain me step by step what to do.
Samsung should stop promoting the Galaxy Tab and fix the Galaxy S phones.Tab is running 2.2 and most likely has a fixed GPS.While the rest of us who paid for a product still have not gotten our money's worth.
I have configured my Samsung Galaxy S using my normal Gmail account. This has helped me to sync the Google Contacts with my phone.
Following are my questions:
1. Right now I have about a thousand google contacts synced to my phone. I want to remove them at one go. I know how to disable them from being appearing in contact list, but I want to know if I can delete them without going to factory settings.
2. I am using three applications (a) Gmail (b) Contacts (3) MVOIP. I want to know if there is a way that following combination works: a- Google contacts appear on Gmail app b- Google contacts (with phone numbers) and normal phone contacts appear on "Contacts" c- Google contacts (with phone numbers) and normal phone contacts appear on "MVOIP application".
I know how to do
(a) - By synchronising google contacts, (b) - by choosing display options (c) - I do not know how to handle this and I want help.
I recently got myself a Motorola Droid X and my wife the Samsung Galaxy S. I can install apps on the Motorola until my heart is content but they fail on the Galaxy. It goes through the motions of downloading and then throws an error that the dowload failed. It does not give a reason for the failure. Is this phone modified by Verizon not to allow apps or did I get a bad phone?
Well, I'm a soon-to-be Galaxy S Captivate owner, and I've been reading and watching practically everything I can find about the phone every single day. I even check this forum every three hours or so!I've finally ran out of video reviews and 9-page written and 10 minute video reviews to read and watch. I'm an Android virgin, so I want to know exactly I'll do the moment I turn on my device and get a chance to play with it the first time! I've gotten some really great ideas of what I'm going to get already from Lifehacker, but what I want to know is what your guys' opinion, pro Galaxy S owners. What are your favorite apps? Discuss! <3(Yes, one-click lag fix will be my first download )
Big problem, I was using my phone and it ended up crashing and stalling. Took phone battery out and put back in to restart the unit. Now on startup it shows me the galaxy s gt1m900 scrren, then turns off. If the power is plugged in, it will loop continiously. No clue how to get it back up and running, I did manage to get to the "downloading - do not turn off phone" screen but thats as different of a result i could get..
I installed ics on my Galaxy S and it runs pretty good but I was searching for an app called Tuenti (social network in Spain) and it doesn't appear... I also tried installing this app with Root Explorer but I can't... Do you know how to make apps that aren't suppose to be built for ICS running?
