General :: Samsung Galaxy Rugby - Phone Unusable After Removing Bloatware

May 16, 2012

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...

Jelly Bean :: Email Has Stopped - Error With Samsung Galaxy Rugby Pro

Dec 7, 2013

I recently have started to experiencing the infamous 'Unfortunately, Email has stopped" error with my Samsung Galaxy Rugby Pro. The phone is using Jelly Bean 4.1.2 with Kernal 3.0.31-1371191. I have been able to use the native email application to check my email for easily the last year. However, last week, it has started to produce this issue. I am not sure what changed that has started to trigger it. I normally do not install updates, but as of a result of the error I have installed all updates to current to no avail. Allow me to explain what is happening and what I have done to attempt to resolve:

1. When I open email, I can see all my unread/read email for the various mail folders. When I attempt to open any individual email it hangs for a moment, then crashes with the above message.
2. When I attempt to compose an email it crashes with the above message.
3. When I attempt to add another account, after entering the email and password it crashes again with the above message.

Things I have done:

1. Restarted my phone
2. Force stopped email
3. I installed all the latest updates, even installed the 'at&t messaging' application.
4. I have since attempted to clear data and settings for email.
5. I additionally removed my accounts and attempted to re-add them. However, I am again greeted with the crash. So now I have even less functionality then I had previously.

Samsung Fascinate :: Removing Bloatware Without Being In Recovery Mode

Sep 10, 2010

I basically have no idea what I'm doing so I take no responsibility for how you use the information below, nor any responsibility for any issues it might cause. After following the rooting process and installing Titanium Backup and the 1-Click Lag Fix. I decided to explore and I was actually able to remove some of the bloatware apps without being in recovery mode. After obtaining root ADB Shell (the shell with a # sign instead of a $) I basically did the following commands:

General :: Samsung Rugby Smart - How To Find Out CPU Of Device

Feb 28, 2012

I am reviewing the Samsung Rugby Smart, and I don't want to ask my media contacts about the CPU.

I have found out the RAM is 354 MB, and the CPU is a Qualcomm Single-Core 1.4 GHz processor with the Adreno 205 GPU.

How to figure out which Qualcomm processor it is? Pretty sure it is an S2, but which one? I'm thinking maybe the same one in the G2, but I want to know for sure.

Motorola Droid X :: Useless Bloatware With No Way Of Removing It?

Oct 5, 2010

I have been a big fan of android since I heard about it a few years ago and when my carrier finally got a android phone I jumped at it. The day the Motorola droid came out I bought it. The Motorola Droid is a great device and I am really happy with it. Fast forward last week I bought a Droid X for my girl friend and at first we both thought it was an amazing device. But after using it some more I noticed all the CRAP that comes with the phone.(she will never use skype and all the other junk) I am mad at google for letting companys like Motorola add all this useless crap on a phone with no way of removing it. Also the battery only lasts a few hours with only twitter and facebook installed on the device? Without rooting it does anyone else know a way to remove these apps?

General :: Phone Lag Almost Unusable Due To IOWAIT

Sep 2, 2013

I have an older phone (HTC Desire Z / Vision) which is still usable, but it has been extremely slow lately. When I say slow, I mean that applications take 10-30 seconds to open and I often get "application is not responding, force close / wait" windows pop up. I thought it was slow CPU speed, but after running top I find that the problem is spending too much time in IOWAIT status. CPU is overclocked to 1.5 GHz, I am running Cyanogen 7 (newer won't run on this hardware).

I tried installing Seeder and it worked - for about two hours. It was glorious for those two hours, my phone worked! But now it's right back to before, laggy as hell and spending most of its time in IOWAIT.

I ran some benchmarks and got these numbers for disk access speed:

Internal storage write: 3.18 Mbytes/sec
Internal storage read: 15.5 Mbytes/sec
External storage write: 2.69 Mbytes/sec
External storage read: 16.7 Mbytes/sec

Samsung Galaxy S :: Way To Restore All Bloatware Back?

Aug 24, 2010

So i removed alot of bloatware with Android Mate, but I didn't back up anything. Not that my phone doesn't behave, but is it possible to get all these apps back? Maybe get my phone back to factory state if I want to? No, I didn't make a backup file. I now, stupid of me. But if anyone else did, in theory shouldn't it be possible for me just to download that file and then "restore" the phone back to factory state?

General :: Apps To Make Phone Unusable If Stolen

Sep 22, 2013

I was looking for an application that make two things:

- First, you can't switch off your phone without the password (useful with nexus 4, because you can't unplug the battery without utils)

- You can't restore your phone without the password

These actions could be activated always or by your activating them on a website (like apps that allowed you to locate your phone)

This would be useful if your phone is stolen, you could locate your phone if it's stolen because the the phone wouldn't be switched off or wiped

I looked for an app like that but I didn't found it..If no, is there an hardware restriction?

Motorola Droid X : Removing Bloatware Noticeably Increase Performance / Battery Life?

Jul 23, 2010

I have asked this on the bloatware thread, and I've only seen one person mention that they have seen an improvement (BringTheRain403). I know a lot of you have removed most of the bloatware by now.

Do you see a noticeable increase in performance or battery life after removing the bloatware? By removing, I mean freezing the apk's in Titanium Backup. I don't really have a problem with this stuff being on the phone, but if it will noticeably help to remove it, then I definitely will.

Samsung Captivate :: Removing Galaxy S Bookmark

Jul 31, 2010

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.

General :: Galaxy S4 I337 - Deleted Bloatware With Titanium Backup

Sep 19, 2013

I recently rooted my galaxy s4 i337 and I heard about deleting bloatware so I was like, "hey that sounds cool!"

Sadly I did not realize the effects that deleting those files could cause to the device... I have factory reset my phone at least 5 times hopping that the deleted files would come back.... but they did not.

My problems are that whenever I pull up s-voice, I comes up with a message saying, "Unfortunately, S-voice has stopped working". I tried re-installing it with files I found from this site but then it started saying that I could not connect to the network so that was a dead end. I also have messages when I do various tasks says, "Unfortunately, Samsung text-to-voice engine has stopped."

I change my main language text to voice thing to google instead of samsung and that worked a little, but I still get the occasional message and s voice is completely broken. I saw that re installing chat on could work and i downloaded it because I think I may have deleted it, but it made absolutely 0 difference...

Motorola Droid :: FRG01B Forced Now Phone Is Almost Unusable

Aug 9, 2010

Last week I forced the OTA 2.2 for droid and now my phone is almost unusable. It was "kinda laggy" right after the update but now it is a 2 second delay just to get numbers to type in on the dial pad. It makes me wish I had waited.

I did notice that EVERYTHING is starting in the background when I look at my task killer. If I kill everything then it runs smooth for maybe 30 secs before everything starts back up again.

Is my slowness being caused by this or is there something else I can do to make is usable again. I am really hoping that FRG22 fixes this major problem for me as I loved my droid before but almost want to toss it out the window now.

Kills me waiting 5-10 secs for handcent to even startup.

After the phone boots up and Im looking at my home screen, the phone stays locked up for about 2 minutes before I can start using it. Is this normal? Everything runs fine after that, but it seems to take a long time. I am using Launcher Pro, but didn't have this problem before. The SD card icon is displayed in the status bar the whole time its locked up also.

Motorola Droid :: Browser Almost Unusable Along With Slow Phone Speed

Nov 8, 2010

I don't know what has happened with my phone recently. I had flashed ss4.8, ss4.9, lfy 1.9, and now cyanogenmod 6.1 RC3. My phones internet browser has force closed constantly on every ROM I mentioned above. Its never done this before. I can't even hardly load or scroll through a web page and it force closes almost everytime I use the internet for more than 5 mins. The phone itself has been horribly slow too no matter what kernel I use. I noticed something about JIT in the cyanogenmod settings, could this possibly have something to do with it? I have no clue I'm just shooting in the dark but my phone has been almost unusable.

Samsung Galaxy S :: Samsung Galaxy-S Phone Number Incorrectly Shown In System Info

Nov 5, 2010

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.
