what gets cleared when you clear dalvik cache and cache partitions? like will i have to reflash the froyo mms fix after doing this? or will it stay like the gapps do? because i know the gapps stay in system or something like that. so im not quite sure where things are stored.
Is it possible to force the cache of your app to clear when the user exits the app? My app piles up cache data (rightfully so) on each start, which is no longer needed once the user quits the app, so I am trying to find a way to forcibly clear it.
I am wondering if there is a way to clear the cache and no I don't mean partion cache wipe of all apps except one? I used some apps but they clear all of them. The reason I ask is because QuickPic loads the thumbnails of my photos and when I clear the cache it takes forever to load all the thumbnails for my photos and then drains my battery while doing so.
I opened ASTRO file manager Menu>More>Preferences and there is a setting to clear the internal caches. I already cleared mine manually through the settings>manage applications so I am not sure if ASTRO clears all the caches on the Eris or not.
I have just recently rooted my wife's phone because she saw a couple of themes she wanted and I informed her the only way to get themes like what she was looking at (J-Rummy's Pink Life) was to root and rom the device and then theme it. So what I did was just root the phone using RSD Lite by installing SPRecovery on her phone and then applying the root update.zip file to the device. No problems from that point on. I did that a few days ago. I just went ahead and purchased Rom Manager for easier application of Roms/Themes. I downloaded Lithium Mod/Pink-Life Rom and then selected clear data and cache and install. I have run into nothing but problems. I am getting constant force closes, system freezes, reboots, etc. So, first thing I think of is, different kernel. Same thing. I try three different kernels and get the same problems. I then decide to just revert back to her previous setup (clean 2.1 with Root access). Everything is back to normal with no issues at all except for the fact the wife wants a Pink Rom.
I then decide to try BB 0.4, thinking maybe it had something to do with the ROM. I installed it the same way as I did the last one. I did everything through ROM Manager. Got the same results. I just wanted to make sure I listed everything I did so maybe there could be some different insight on what is going wrong, but my question is...is it better to reboot into recovery and wipe data/cache and then install from recovery or just install through Rom Manager? I know that sounds dumb because Rom Manger boots into recovery anyway and does exactly what you would have done, but does it truly do it the same is my question? If the answer is yes, Rom Manager takes care of all that for you, then does anyone know of anything else I could try to maybe get a ROM running on this device without all of these problems? I am running out of ideas. I have even tried installing it through SPRecovery (changing the name to update.zip of course).
I was rooted and not thinking about using the cache clear app I did it using the recovery menu in the phone. Now I can't see to be able to rename .apk files on the phone. It says the file system is read-only. I have tried remounting the filesystem several times and i can't.
I'm using a galaxy note 10.1 2013 edition, and was wondering if there are any apps that allow the same functions of the 4.3 trim (clearing cache). If there aren't any, I don't mind having to manually clear cache, but is it possibly to do it without rooting?
My browser got a bit out of whack (for some reason the default Google search page stopped displaying the search field). Also the 'data' was taking up almost 10MB and I'm running low on application disk space (dammit they have to find a way to let us store apps on our sdcards) Anyway.. I did a "clear data" thing on the browser, thinking this would only clear temporary internet files, but it reset everything (wiped out my favorites and saved passwords.
I synced up with my computer after uninstalling unused apps and clearing the browser cache and a few others, just general clean up to keep the phone running smooth. After roaming around my sd card, I came across this. A total of 84 cache files totaling 3.24mb. What is this from and is it ok to delete them? I'm assuming it is since it is just cache, which you can delete any of theme xcept for google nav (force close issues).
I'm looking for a method or an application for android tablet, which allows me to quickly reset the device deleting any data (from the Internet cache, and the cache to the photos of the various programs such as facebook, twitter etc ...) and that does not allow any modification of the operating system. I need this solution because I have a restaurant and I want to put a tablet on each table for guests to make him see the menu (full of photos and videos), surf the internet and play with the kids.
is there an app that allows this? or is there a quick way to do this, such as a multiaccount management ? I remember, for example, that for windows there are applications that completely erase any unauthorized modification, files and cache, at the time you restart the operating system.
how to access sd card and clear cache. I am having a problem were I open e-mail w/ attachment and then it ask's if I want to save to the sd card. So I do and now I can not find the attachment, or when I open it it just prompts to save gain.Thank you for any help.
I just switched my contacts from Outlook to Gmail. No problem in doing that. I left the outlook contacts on the phone (just in case), but switched the View item in people to only show the gmail contacts. Whenever I make or receive a call now, the caller ID lookup always tells me I'm calling or receiving a call from one particular user, who is not the caller/callee. Clearly I need to clear a lookup cache, but which one? There are the following caches/data that might need to be cleared: Contacts Storage, Gmail Storage, People.
The problem that happens is tuat google thinks I am Spanish and therefor makes google.com display in Spanish. I tried changing and deleting the cache in the browser, tried changing the local settings, nothing wants to work? Right now I have set my homepage to the English version using the url codes, but that is only a temp fix.
I recently updated my phone to 2.1, and whenever i get a text message, i open the notification bar, click on the notification, the message opens, but the notification does not remove itself any suggestions?
In cm roms, dalvik cache of system apps are generated in /cache but those data/apps are generated in /data. Is there any way to disable this behaviour? Cache partition in our phones is too small. In AOSP and AOKP and stock roms, dalvik cache is always generated in /data no matter whether its a system app. any way to achieve this in cm roms?
Since few days ago, com.htc.bgp has been force closing on my HTC Hero. I have tried pretty much any remedy I have found on the internet, but it still bugs. Here's a list: -Hard reset -Deleting caches from ALL of the apps -Deleting the HTC Sense app on Facebook.com (with hard reset) -Turning off Facebook sync (this DID work, but losing functionality that worked just a few days ago kind of sucks).
Following the big guide and I am at the nanroid backup stage in the recovery utility. I've got Android system recovery utility Use trackball to highlight, click to select. Options: Reboot system now [home+back] Apply sdcard:update.zip [alt+s] Wipe data/factory reset [alt+w] Then at the bottom it says E: Cant open /cache/recovery/command Thats the full screen, nothing about backup/restore
I'm implementing an image cache system for caching downloaded image.
My strategy is based upon two-level cache: Memory-level and disk-level.
My class is very similar to the class used in the droidfu project
My downloaded images are put into an hashmap and the Bitmap objet is wrapped inside a SoftRererence object.
Also every image is saved permanently to the disk. If a requested image is not found into the Hashmap<String,SoftReference<Bitmap>> it will be searched on the disk, readed, and then pushed back into the hashmap. Otherwise the image will be downloaded from the network.
Since I store the images into the phisical device momery, I have added a check for preserve the device space and stay under a 1M of occupied space:
This method is called sometime afte a disk writing:
What I'd like to add is the same check on the HashMap size to prevent it will grow too much. Something like this:
My question is: What could be a right MAX_MEMORY_SIZE value? Also, Is it a good approach? A good answer also could be: "Don't do it! SoftReference is already enough"
after installing 2.2 on my hero, everything was working fine, until now. im having problems with my text messages, they wont send under sprints network, if i put it in roaming then they send right away, but roaming has awefully slow (1x) network speeds, but if i put it back to the 3g network speeds of sprint then everytime i try to send a text it just swirls in circles (the little thing next to the message) and wont send. is this sprints network being down? or does this have to do with the 2.2 update?i dont think its sprint because my mom and sister arent having any problems with there phones from the same plan. but i tryed restarting many times, taking out and leaving out the battery, putting it in airplane mode and turning that back off to reset connection, iv tryed everything and cant get it to work, so idk what to do, and i dont understand why if it was a software problem with the 2.2 installation, why would they send in roaming but not on sprints network?
I have read a couple of threads that touched on this ring issue, but was unable to find any that had a solution or work around.Since the 2.1 update and the OTA update, many times when an incoming call comes, the phone doesn't ring. If I happen to be in front of the phone, I can see the screen change showing an incoming call.If I am listening to Pandora Radio, when the phone rings, Pandora stops, but the phone never rings.If I am not near or looking at the phone this results in missing the call.If I shut off the phone and re-boot it appears to ring fine, but at some point later in the day or week it will quit ringing.I normally never turn off the phone. Should I start to re-boot every day?
