[HOW TO] Remove bloatware


Thursday 22nd of July 2010 / droidforums.net
Once your Droid X is rooted, you can start to remove some of the crap Verizon and Motorola decided to make a quick buck off of. You'll need to have ADB or a terminal emulator (I suggest Better Terminal) from the market. You should be at least a little familiar from rooting. Before I go on, I want to note a few things. READ THIS:1) The method we are using here is RENAMING the files. That way, if you decide you want an app back, you can rename the file back to it's original name.2) If you're not sure what an app is or what it does, don't touch it! Several people have changed a file they weren't sure about and it affected the phone in some way they didn't realize.3) Further, understand that removing some apps will break functionality in others. They interact in ways you can't predict. If you have a problem, rename the file back.4) Don't touch BackupAssistantClient.apk. Apparently it can cause a huge disaster when doing a system recovery. Leave it alone. The Easy WayIf you don't mind paying (I think it's $1.99) for Root Explorer, get it from the Android Market. Open it.- Press the Mount

Android Forums - View Single Post - [How To] Manually Root, Unroot, Restore and more~VZW Samsung Galaxy Nexus


Friday 30th of December 2011 / androidforums.com
.This post will discuss how to return your phone back to stock, which will un-root it.That is in contrast to just removing the root components (su binary, Superuser.apk, custom recovery, possibly busybox, other root apps, etc.) from your device. You can just remove the root components, but that would be a manual process and is not what most folks want or talk about when they say "un-rooting". Here's a quick (un-tested) list of what I would do if I simply wanted to "un-root" and not reflash a set of stock images (note: again, this is not a true substitute for returning your phone back to stock and re-locking the bootloader):

How to fix issues with gmail


Sunday 16th of January 2011 / androidforums.com
I've already seen posts on this, but I figured i'd throw out the info, because ive run into a lot of people with this problem. If your phone has problems with gmail period, especially when your trying to synch/create new gmail. You will have to factory restore your phone. Prior to this I would back up everything on the phone. As in transfer all your pictures, videos, txt/pic msg, mp3s/music, and android apps (use android mate) to your memory card. Make sure you remove the memory card out of the phone. Some how, you will have to back up your contacts. I would recommend going to a Metro corperate store, and have them use their "cell brite" machine to back up your contacts. After this is done, turn the phone off. When turning on the phone hold the power button, call volume up, and send/call key at the same time. You will see a black and blue screen appear. Choose the option that says wipe information, and then once you do you will have to scroll down about 5-6 times, and choose erase all. DO NOT CHOOSE ANYTHING REGARDING PARTIONS OR WHAT NOT. It should be the 3rd option. Aft

How to change lock screen app which changed on update?


Tuesday 25th of March 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
So HTC One finally got the 4.4.2 release and I upgraded today, The problem I am having is that on my favourites bar I had my phone app, text app, web browser, and music app.After the update, my phone app was replaced with the Android guy icon, I assume this is default when the app cannot be found or something.So I removed the icon and put the phone app back. This worked perfectly fine on my unlocked screen, however it still shows the android guy on my lock screen.Here is a screen show of my locked and unlocked screen: How can I remove the android guy and replace it with my phone app as both locked and the unlocked screen should be in sync and show the same apps? Thanks

How to completely uninstall HTC Sync Manager from my Macintosh????


Wednesday 18th of June 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hello, I briefly tried to use the HTC Sync Manager when I first got my M8 about a week ago. Now I want to go back to the much better Android File Transfer program. Unfortunately, the HTC software will not go away and AFT will no longer see my phone. I have deleted the HTC Sync Manager application and went to various folders in the Library and ~Library folder removing any suspicious files. So, HTC Sync Manager should be gone… No!!! Now when I plug my phone in I get a disk image mounting on my computer with a link to the web site where I can download the HTC Sync Manager. I have tried reinstalling the Android File Transfer software. It won't auto launch when you plug the phone in. When you manually launch it, it can't find the phone. So we are back to the title of this plea for help: How do I completely uninstall and remove every last trace of HTC Sync Manager from my Mac? thanks
