The quicker solution might be to use something like sitekiosk for android, or kioware for android. Jelly Bean is fine and they give you a lot of options to customize.

If you prefer reset, and if it's only about your contacts and photos, you can sync them to your Google account. Go to Settings > Select "Google" under Accounts > Click on your Google Account and now select Contacts and People Details. For backing up photos from your phone, you can upload them to Google Drive using Google Drive App. After reset is ...

Most likely there is some filesystem corruption on the SD card. Try scanning it with a filesystem checker on your PC (e.g. fsck under Linux).

This might sound crazy, and I do not recommend anyone try it, but... I had tried cleaning the female charging port on the tablet with alcohol and q-tips and had no luck. I decided to use the tip of a mechanical pencil (metal tip) to scrape the contacts to see if they had build up. I put the metal tip in to scuff them up and (since the tablet was on), a ...

Should be an hardware issue. In my case was the oxidation of the motherboard cause by the sweat cuase i kept the phone on my arms while I was running.

If swapping is not enabled, it is of course safe to remove the swap file. I've never heard of custom RAM, but assuming you've just mis-spelled the term (or confused it), for this part of your question please look into Where can I find stock or custom ROMs for my Android device?

If you cannot access the main UI, but the system powers up, boot in to recovery. Try and find out what your recovery keys are (e.g. it's usually vol+, vol- and power on Samsung phones) online or by reading your device's manual, then holding them as your device boots. Once in recovery, use the volume keys to select an option and power to use that tool, ...

There are a couple of things you could do. Boot into recovery mode, and perform a factory reset that way. Google something like "recovery mode " and the volume buttons act as the arrow keys and the power/home button as the back/select button. Log into your Google account on your computer (if you aren't already logged in) ensuring that it is the same ...

Since Google Now isn't actually available in my country, I did some looking around, and found this "hack" in a blog : http://thenepalidroidguy.blogspot.com/2014/02/how-to-enable-google-now_6.html In case that the link dies, these are the steps described there : Make sure you have an active internet connection and follow all the steps below carefully. ...

Well, I'll be damned. It seems that Google Now refuses to run on a rooted device, but it just doesn't say so. The vendor had installed an app to enable rooting of the device. I'd played around with it, but root access was disabled after the first upgrade of MiUI. I didn't really miss root access, to be honest, so it let it be. Ziggo (my cable TV ...

It depends. Some phone manufacturers adds the feature of moving apps to sd card in some of their models but most of them does not have this feature by default. Although you can change that manually by rooting your phone and using an app called 'app2sd ' on any version of Android .

An easy low brow way to do this that I find the best for investment/reward ratio is ..... drum roll, flourish of hands, magical passes over sequined leotard clad assistant's body, ..... copy the MP3s onto a microSD card that is plugged into a USB port on the PC. And then disconnect the microSD card from the PC and insert it into the microSD slot next to ...

My mistake for the previous answer . As you have a VPN defined you are probably facing difficulty accessing the network as you need to unlock the screen every time you access so I suggest you download this app. In this app it will remove the requirement for any pattern lock to access the network thereby relieving you of the problem which you face . Else ...

You can use adb for this: adb backup -noapk -noshared -f gmail.ab com.google.android.gm would backup all data of the GMail app to your PC, storing it in a file named gmail.ab in the current working directory. A restore of that snapshot then is as easy as running adb restore gmail.ab Note that this will include all the settings of the GMail app. If you ...

If I understand correctly you're wanting to download all of your Gmail emails? If so, I've used this tool before in the past to download my Gmail emails and it works well: http://www.gmail-backup.com/

So I have found a great solution. Using a micro SD-Card with 2 partitions. One normal fat32 and second ext2 so the app link2sd can use it as a fake mobile memory on the second ext2 partition. Now all the Jelly Bean internal apps run on the mobile itself and all the other apps I have installed on the second sd-card partition. Have more apps than ever and ...

I'm afraid not. These bundled apps are part of the ROM image, so the app updates are part of the system update. When you install an update, it just copies the data wholesale into the phone's system partition: it doesn't install apps one by one. For this reason, there's no way to filter out individual apps from the update. You can't even remove those files ...

Ask yourself what did you do for mail before you installed the yahoo app. Are the notifications you are receiving from a primary mail app? Mine were.

This has never been a feature of the stock launcher. Perhaps you were using a phone on Jellybean where the manufacturer had replaced the stock launcher with their own launcher, which had this feature. Since Android supports third-party launchers, just install a launcher (home screen) app which supports this feature. There are many to choose from.
