SOURCE: I need to uninstall my google browser and android

As they are both in system partition you need root access to be able to uninstall from phone.

If rooted it can be deleted with any root explorer (File expert, root explorer,...)


I there is still problem. try connecting from PC (android SDK mandatory) and use command on terminal:

su
rm /system/app/Browser.apk (I presume)
rm /system/app/Vending.apk (I presume)

What are you using Wi-Fi for? You may have Wi-Fi but your Wi-Fi it may not be hooked up to the Internet. Try restarting your Wi-Fi / router.

Dear Mark,
This phone is a newer phone therefore there are not many rooting methods as of yet, since this is a lower end device this method will likely work but i'm not sure if its 100% compatible with android 5.0 lollipop.
1) Go to settings and in security sou should find the opton unknown sources, check this box and accept
2) Next download this file in the phones browser Poot debug apk Poot debug apk by stedman420 for Optimus when it finishes the download, pull down the notification center and click on the download complete notification, it will ask you if you wish to install this app, select install,
3) Run the app and follow what it prompts you to do it may be particular to your device
4) Install this app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=eu.chainfire.supersu&hl=en and open it and install the su binary
5) Install this app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jrummyapps.rootchecker&hl=en and check for root

No space for new apps



· 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.

Can also bedone by using adb bridge (Search on the net you will surely get something onstackoverflow.com).

If thisdoes not solve your problem.

Then try this:
· 3. (This solved my problem)


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.
->type
adb devices


:
if it returns with last line like this

List of devices attached
cfcd5eec device

This means you have successfully set up theinterface.


Running Commands
->check the default storage location bytyping on the command prompt:

adbshell pm get-install-location

If it results something like:

open: Permission denied
open: Permission denied
2[external]

Or

open: Permission denied
open: Permission denied
1[internal]


This means it may be a problem which forces the Android OS to save on specified location 1 for internalstorageand 2 forexternal storage.

You may fix this by running the following command:

adb shell pm set-install-location 0

here 0 means automatic storage depending on the storage space availability.

Meanwhile you may get messages like:
open:Permission denied
open: Permission deniedYou can ignore this.

this is probably because your phone is notrooted.


Hope this is useful.

Android 4.1.2 install down loaded apps


Drag your index finger starting up at the top of your screen....down....lightly....until you see your recent activities....look for the down loaded app......tap it to get a menu pop up.....choose open or install....it will start the install and tell you when it is done....you may want to monitor the install to make settings as it is installing. To avoid installing in a way that might use more battery or memory than you would like. Each app will usually ask your permission to have access to a number of other apps and your directory of people and their information too.....install wisely. Free apps are free of monetary charge, but usually make their money from information that you allow them to access and exploit...information from your phone......good luck and have fun...

What does it mean system UI has stopped working on android trio 4.3" stealth?


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 I install Baidu on my android tablet


Improve the FixYa experience for everyone by voting. I want you to let me know if the solution(s) suggested were of any value. Constructive criticism is welcomed.

Hi,

I'm Ben and -- hopefully -- I can provide some meaningful assistance.

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.
  1. One is through Google checkout. You give it a credit card number, and it manages the transactions for you.
  2. 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

Android Market
  • 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

Android Market
  1. Go to market.android.com from a web browser.
  2. Pick an app. Hit the install button.
  3. You'll be asked to accept permissions, and choose which device you want to install on (if you have more than one).
  4. 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.

Where are you downloading apps from, the phone/tablet or on a PC? Have you setup a gmail account on your phone yet? A gmail account is required to register the phone/tablet on the android market.

I CAN'T CALL OR HANG UP FROM MY IPHONE BUT OTHER KEY PAD WORKS.WHAT DO I DO?


am assuming you JB your phone recently?

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)

Hope this was helpful smile.gif
