After a lot of googling and combining results from different locations, I found an answer that works for me. First of all, if the AndroidManifest.xml file contains android:configChanges="orientation" Then it means that your activity config won't refresh when orientation changes, and you are given the opportunity to handle it manually via onLayoutChange, ...

Note: This is a partial answer, and might get completed in future. This answer directly focuses upon changing the name of the images created by Silent Camera app. For an alternative approach to the question, see this answer. We know that the name of the images is not a random number but Unix Time (as mentioned here). All we have to do is create and run a ...

This solution is independent of any Camera app, and is tested on CM12 (Lollipop 5.0.2) and should work on other Lollipop ROMs as well. While it seems that the question is about changing the naming scheme of Silent Camera app, the actual goal is to use an app that is free from shutter sounds. OP seems to have found an another app (see this answer) to suit ...

To sum up @Firelord's comments: The naming scheme is not random numbers, but rather the Unix time the photo was taken. It is easy to convert this to human time: one has but to paste the number sequence into epochconverter and convert it. That outputs GMT and your timezone. From the conversions, it seems the number sequence is even more accurate than the ...

I think this is probably the fault of the SD card, not Android. It sounds to me like your SD card is corrupted. I had a somewhat similar problem once, but not exactly the same. Every once in a while icons for all image files I put on the external micro SD card would change from thumbnails to gray squares with black keyholes, and the files would become ...

Does the device itself have a passcode? Either way, the device is probably accessible through USB. Get ADB, plug the device into a computer, and using ADB (hopefully USB debugging was enabled before your dad sent it to hell) first type adb devices to make sure your computer sees the phone. If you're successful, you'll see your phone get listed on the screen. ...

Maybe I can help with part of your question. I too have had a 'Not Enough Space' issue. I deleted a bunch of files and off-loaded more, still I could not move or edit other files. Going to settings and checking 'Device' 'Storage' the operating system indicated that I had over 2/3 of my internal memory available. I found that if I power cycled the device ...

Do you have an app cleaner, like 360 security or cleaner app? If so, uninstall it because some cleaner apps delete the apps. I have same issue: no app in home screen, but the apps data is in the folder Android/obb or data. Uninstall Cleaner apps Delete the .obb file in Android folder and reinstall again.

I found that my phone had randomly uninstalled Vaulty one day and was worried i had lost my pictures. I was able to install Vaulty from the play store again with the same pin and i was able to access my photos again. If you can't do this i would suggest the following. Transfer the encrypted files to your computer or another device Restore your phone back ...

This solution would work if the device is rooted. For Jelly Bean (4.2.1) and Kitkat (4.4.2) Android keeps a log of when was an app (it's component) last used. You can head down to /data/system/usagestats/ using a file explorer with root access, or using adb. There would be a file named usage-history.xml and some other files with naming convention as ...

For system apps, there is a way to revert back to the version that initially came with your phone. If you updated a system app from the play store and want to revert the app to the original system version, you can do so by opening it up on Play Store and click 'uninstall update'; this will revert it to a system update. Furthermore you can't even uninstall ...

If its missing completely,then reinstall it. My apologies for the short answer but what you stated was that your "Files" app is missing. You didn't make it clear that the default files app was missing. Solution: Most default apps or bloatware can be disabled, try looking into settings > apps > all, and search for you application there. It could have been ...

I had the same problem. I'm using a Galaxy Samsung Tab 3 with Android 4.4. The "My Files" icon went missing. After a lot of digging I learned that I had to click the Settings icon, then Application Manager. It would list all the downloaded apps. You must then swipe the list to the left so you can see the heading "All" and "Turned Off" hidden off to the ...

There is an idea by Firelord in the comment here which I think should work: The best way I think is to have a backup of the app (at least its APK if not the data files; APK of earlier version of an app can also be obtained from some websites (beware of malware) if you updated the app and doesn't have the backup) so that if you end up disliking the ...

I cannot give you a satisfying "100% answer", but maybe bring some light into the issue: What AVG reports for this app is: it includes ad modules specifically, it includes something called Android/deng (sorry, AVG doesn't give me the English page, obviously due to my current location/IP – with some luck it will reroute you to it) This "Android/deng" ...

You don't want a VOIP type application for this, you want a gamer voice-chat application like Mumble . It's a very similar concept but designed to be used on LANs and for end users to run their own servers without requiring any internet access. Mumble in particular is very easy to install on Windows, Android.

You could also try eNotify. On one hand, it is the most powerful notification filtering app for Android. It supports nearly all types of email. It can be used to determine whether a notification should be shown based on the sender, subject, content, priority and pretty much anything else. However, it also has the ability to move emails to the SPAM folder or ...

If you didn't have the requirement of being able to access the settings (the settings app is part of the launcher in some ROMs), this would probably be easier. In that case, you could simply build a custom ROM that boots straight to calculator. The main disadvantage would be the absence of even a battery indicator.

There is screen pinning in lollipop which you can access from the recent apps screen. This will keep the pinned app open. The home button will be disabled, no notifications will show, and the lock screen is bypassed. If you need to unpin the app, you hold the back and recent apps buttons for about a second. You did mention this is an old android phone, ...

This doesn't apply to Wi-Fi, but the Android system has a per-app setting "restrict background data" that will completely stop the app from using mobile data except when the app is running in the foreground (i.e. it's the active app). To access this setting, go to System Settings > Data Usage, then scroll down to locate the app and tap it. Then scroll down ...

The app with this package name: com.wsandroid.suite was not signed by the same certificate as the one from the Play store. This is a fundamental security requirement.

This a common problem faced by rooted phone users. If you have any app that links your files to Sd like link2sd, luckypatcher... and your phone doesn't support it. You'll have to revert all this apps setting to get the memory back. The actual problem is that you are linking to a directory which doesn't actually exist.

I found out this was most probably caused by SnapPea. Not only this app installed itself after connecting my phone to my PC (where I did have SnapPea program installed), but also installed those 5 more rubbish apps. If I go to Google Play on the web and look up those self-installed apps, it shows me they are not actually installed. If I open the apps up in ...

The app likely uses an undocumented API to communicate with their backend server, so to reverse engineer what this is you need to monitor the app's network traffic. Fortunately this is straightforward for Android: install the Chrome extension ARC Welder so that you can run Android apps on your computer download the app's APK and load it in ARC Welder ...

If you don't want to root your device, you can use adb and pm instead. These steps will be hard to follow unless you already are familiar with the use of command-line tools.

I found that the presentation saved by this app isn't in .ppt format but each slide is sliced into a .jpg having a numeric name, and the images are found only under /data/data/net.slideshare.mobile/files/ E.g.
