I am facing issue in my Android 4.2.1 JB from last 5 days. There are few apps which automatically getting installed without asking my permission. It happens when they detect i am connected to Wi-Fi or mobile data connection. i didn't rebooted my device. Everytime i have to uninstall these apps but after few hours they get automatically installed. Also i observed one app called playApp getting installed automatically which is similar to Google Play Store. But can't uninstall it permanently coz its getting installed automatically.
Option like USB debugging and installed from unknown source are turned off. Even scanned by device through multiple anti-virus like Avast, AVG & CM Security.
I removed all my google account from mobile and added new gmail account. But issue is still same.
Auto-update apps" is disabled in google play. But same this is keep happening. Did hard reset of my phone but same issue.
Below are the apps which are currently in my device:
Adobe reader, all-in-one toolbox, avg, avast, backup& restore, battery doctor, call control, cam-scanner, chrome, clean master, CM Security, EN-HI dictonary, fusion (music player), goggles, linkedin, FB messanger, My Tom, Outlook, Quickoffice, subway surfer, whatsapp, youtube.

· 1.Check if you really have sufficient storage free.
Ifstorage is free enough
then · 2.Clear the app chache data with the clean master app or the included cleaning app forjunk data cleaning.

Usuallythe default install location in android is set to automatic. If for any reasonif it is change to something else it can be problematic like you experienced.
Setting up ADB (required)
->get you phone connected to a pc over the USBcable provided (Make sure you have your proper driver installed [usually it'sinstalled])).
->Turn the "debugging mode on"through the settings (You can search over the internet it's easy)
->download the adb_inteface.rar tool andextract it somewhere.
->open command prompt. Change the currentdirectory to where you extracted the adb.exe and all files from the attachment.
if it returns with last line like this List of devices attached cfcd5eec device
This means you have successfully set up theinterface.
->check the default storage location bytyping on the command prompt:
no. android has issues with flashlight apps but iOS apps are built differently and are each verified by apple before they are added to the apple store and the iPhone. apple also restricts access from the app to very specific systems, there an app declared to use the flash cannot sac accsess the microphone without you granting it permission
This probably caused by an feature called 'Face Unlock'; either uninstall or disable it. Usually this done by Settings --> Apps --> (All -->) Face Unlock --> disable / uninstall.
Or when you actually really like that feature, make sure you've updated your phone and that Face Unlock app to the latest version.
PS: What it actually means is the Android System UI component has crashed (and will automatically restarted afterwards). You might see the statusbar at the top disappear and reappear after a few seconds as well ... (symptom).

How do you install apps on Android?
The following applies to any app that you might want to install on your Android tablet.
There are a few ways to go about this. The easiest is, of course, the Android Market itself. But it's quickly finding competition in the likes of the Amazon Appstore. And there are smaller third-party app stores as well, though they haven't necessarily caught on as much as you'd think.
The Android Market
The Android Market is the easiest way to install new Android apps. It should already be installed on your phone or tablet. If it's not, chances are you have one of those (really) cheap Android tablets, and it didn't meet Google's approval. That doesn't mean you can't install new apps, though, and we'll talk more about that in a minute.
Android Market To use the Android Market, you'll need to be signed in with a Google account. Chances are you did this when you first set up the phone. But if not, you can add a Google account to your phone (and even sign up for one at the same time) straight from your phone. Go to Settings>accounts to do so.
Once you're logged in, you'll be able to browser the Android Market, purchase apps, or download free apps. The Android Market also is where you'll update apps you've already loaded. Purchasing apps is done a couple of ways.
One is through Google checkout. You give it a credit card number, and it manages the transactions for you.
Another way is through carrier billing. If you're on Sprint, AT&T or T-Mobile you can charge apps to your phone bill.
There are also a couple ways to browse the Android Market. You'll mostly likely do it from your phone. But if you're at a computer, you can browser, purchase and install apps from the Android Market web portal. It's at www.market.android.com.
Fun fact about the Android Market: Once you've purchased an application, you can download it onto as many phones as you have. Need more space on your phone? Uninstall an app and put it back on later if you need it again, at no additional charge. To install from the Android Market on your phone
Choose an app.
To install, tap "Free" (If it's a paid app, you'll tap "Purchase"
You'll be asked to accept permissions -- this shows you what the app can access on your phone. Hit yes, and the app will download and install.
Note: You can cancel a download as it's happening. For paid apps, you can request a refund within 15 minutes. To install apps from the Android Market
Go to market.android.com from a web browser.
Pick an app. Hit the install button.
You'll be asked to accept permissions, and choose which device you want to install on (if you have more than one).
Look over the permissions and hit the install button again. The app will magically be downloaded and installed on your phone.
The Amazon Appstore
A relative newcomer is the Amazon Appstore. It's similar to the Android Market in that you'll have to have an account with Amazon to use it. Unlike the Android Market, the Amazon Appstore likely didn't come pre-installed on your phone, so you'll need to download it.
Once it's on your phone, you can download apps directly from it or, like the Android Market, from a web portal. App downloaded through the Amazon Appstore will be updated through the Amazon Appstore and not through the Android Market.
The following tutorial video will take you through the entire process better than my written words.
Hi Andrew, I have the exactly same problem, started last night... i almost did hard reset and then i see that you the same problem on the same day... maybe it's a "Market" issue??
i also have two updates available, and when i try to run the update i get the same "installation error" and the app turn to "free" instead of the "update available", when in fact the app is still there (installed)...
If yes, then the dialer freezing issue is caused by few apps from Installer. I faced the same issue and I ended up restoring and re-JB without selecting Installer. If you would like to keep Installer, the Apps that you need to remove are:
- Kate - Mobile Enhancer - RIP DEV Preferences
Just go to Installer and remove those and restart your iPhone, the freezing and crashing should stop.
As of upgrading to 2.2.1 for JB purposes, it's 100% jailbreak-able and it works well. But I am not 100% sure regarding yell0wsnow. (I don't unlock, I only JB - sorry)
