Android :: Uninstalled App Can't Reinstall

Dec 1, 2009

At one point I'd downloaded the Dolphin browser to my Droid, and then uninstalled itI was recently going to try it again, but when I went to the market, it said it was already installed. When I went to Manage Applications to uninstall it again, it wasn't in the list.I've been messing around with the contents of my SD card, and I wonder if I did something to get this app into some strange state. Anybody have any suggestions?

Android :: Detect If An App Was Uninstalled

Apr 21, 2010

Is there a way to get a system notification when an app has been uninstalled?I would like to maintain a table of all clients' info currently using my app. However, that seems impossible if there is no way to detect this event. The first solution I can think of is to have an always running service in the background listening for android.intent.action.PACKAGE_REMOVED. But then would that service be killed once the uninstallation process has ended, or would it be stopped just before the process has kicked off? Also even if this is a solution it's has the potential to put off a lot of people when they realise that part of the app is running in the background.

Android :: Persistent Data Even When App Uninstalled

Oct 2, 2009

My application needs to store some application specific data on the device that persist, even when the app is uninstalled. Using files or databases is not possible as they are deleted with the app when the app is uninstalled. Storing it on an SD-card is too fragile. It is my understanding Content Providers also are deleted with their parent app?

Android :: Uninstalled Apps Leaving Trash Behind

Feb 9, 2010

i find it quite annoying that uninstalling an app doesn't remove all of its data.sure, this is desired behavior for some apps (a camera for instance), but imo google should have implemented a requirement for an app to explicitly request to be allowed to save permanent data, and if the request wasn't made, collect the location of any saved data and remove it upon uninstallation

Android :: Removing Widget From Home Screen When Uninstalled

Dec 7, 2009

When my application is uninstalled, the widget stays on the HOME screen and gives an error message "problem loading widget". How do I remove the widget when my application is uninstalled?Is there an attribute in the manifest that I am missing?I have tried asking on the Google Android groups, but they take so long to approve and then it get's lost with the 100's of other questions that are ask that get approved at the same time.I was sure that this would happen by default by the OS, but guess I was wrong.I am catching the "PACKAGE_ REMOVED" intent, and checking the "EXTRA_REPLACING" to make sure it's not a reinstall, but I don't know the actual code to use to actually remove the widget.

Android :: Application Uninstalled Resulting Loss Of Memory

Feb 14, 2010

Ive had an HTC G1 and I now have the Samsung Behold II. Theres a problem I've noticed on both phones. Lets say I have 60mb of flash memory and I download an app that is 5mb. That would put me down to 55 if my 2nd grade math serves me correctly. Now if I were to uninstall this app, my phone will only go back up to 58mb. Even after restarting the phone 10 times, taking the battery out or doing whatever, it remains at 58mb of memory.

I want to know why does this happen? And is there any way to recover that lost storage? I just find it a bit crappy management of memory. Because this problem can be more drastic, I downloaded a 20mb app which sucked balls, to which I quickly uninstalled. I only got 12mb of the 20 back. Thats 8mb lost somewhere. Again, I'm looking for at the very least an explanation

General :: App Uninstalled But Still Active

Mar 2, 2013

Our phone ( Samsung Galaxy Duos ) had an app installed for hypnosis and it was a relaxation type spiel. After hearing it decided it was rubbish and uninstalled it. Thought it was gone until I got a call or text and it starts to play automatically, it goes for 20 minutes. Once you hit a button or drop notification screen down it stops until the next incoming call or text. I cant see it anywhere on any app lists or on the sd card on the phone etc.

Motorola Droid X :: Uninstalled Clockwork

Nov 17, 2010

I rooted my dx and then i unrooted because I really don't know what I'm doing just figured I would go back stock. So I uninstalled clockwork, rom manager. And I didn't flash any roms so it still is stock right? Well when I powered off and then on it brings up the clockwork bootloader screen and i have done a factory reset and it's still on there. I am not rooted i unistalled all the root only apps, I can't find where this stuff is hiding or do I just scroll down to wipe data/factory option on the clockwork recovery? I hit the first option and it boots up fine! Figure if anything happens and I need to take to verizon they will definitely know.Just trying to go back to factory fresh.

General :: Modified APK Uninstalled Automatically

Sep 30, 2013

I modified the resources for a Google app - Keep. Resigning the APK doesn't work, because it breaks access to Google Drive API, but just replacing resources.arsc in the device (I have root access - CM10.1) with rebuilt one worked. The result works fine, however after day or so Keep is uninstalled from device automatically. I guess that's because the signature of resources.arsc is obviously broken. But is there a way to avoid this automatic uninstall?

HTC EVO 4G :: Uninstalled Music And Widget In Titanium Backup

Oct 1, 2010

I installed the app "Music Mod" to work in Launcher Pro because I couldn't get the Music Widget, and because I liked Music Mod, figured I would uninstall the standard Music App and the Music Widget in Titanium Backup. What I don't like is that when you uninstall a program, there is no option to ever install it again, it basically just deletes it as far as I can tell.

What I wasn't aware was since I uninstalled Music, when I am playing music and my screen turns off, when I turn it on, no longer are there the music controls anymore. I now have to unlock the screen and go to the widget. I use my phone as my MP3 player, so this sucks. While I'm on the run, I don't want to take my phone out of my pocket, unlock it, and click a small button on the widget to change a song. Anyone know if there is anyway to reinstall the stock Music App & Widget so I can get that feature back to change or pause songs without unlocking the phone?

HTC Desire :: Uninstalled Handcent Have No Notification Sound

Aug 5, 2010

I've contacted handcent directly and looked in their forum but it appears that they don't provide good service to customers - no replies! I didn't much like Handcent so I uninstalled it and no notification sounds happened when I received a message. I went back to the stock messaging app and reset the notification sound but it didn't work. Reinstalled Handcent and the sounds came back. Unistalled and no sounds again. I was on 2.1 when it started but I'm now on 2.2 and the same issue happened (no Handcent when it was upgraded to 2.2 in case you're wondering and it didn't fix the problem). Anyone know how to completely remove all traces of Handcent and reset/reconfigure/reinstall the stock messaging app.

General :: How To Remove Partially Uninstalled System App

Jun 8, 2012

I have transformed CoolReader into system app with Titanium backup. It was crashing so I tried to move it back to user app again with Titanium backup. However during this procedure TB hanged and after some 20 minutes I killed it. I later tried to uninstall it (again with TB), but it seems that there are still left parts of it somewhere so now I am unable to reinstall the app from google play (error 491) or if I clear cache and data of google play and force the application to install it keeps crashing.

So I would like to ask what should I delete to completely eliminate the traces of CoolReader (or any application in general) and be able to install it again?
