That might be solved using one of the many automation apps. I myself prefer tasker here, but YMMV (and Tasker doesn't come for free) – llama might be capable of the same. What I do here is creating a profile like this: Condition: App (select the apps you want to use GPS with) Task: GPS On optional exit task: GPS Off That way GPS by default is off, but ...

As Izzy said in the answer, Tasker is a great choice but it's not free for anyone. I tried AutomateIt(Free) and it gets the job done. Install and launch AutomateIt. Go to My Rules → All, and see if you need any predefined rules. If you don't then either disable or delete by tapping each entry once and selecting the desired option. Tap + corresponding ...

Looks like it's just/about to be fixed in Clock 4.0.1 as reported on AndroidPolice. The new APK for the clock app from the Android M Developer Preview doesn't look very different from the one you'll find in Lollipop - most of the functions (alarms, world clock, timer, and countdown) are in the same place and operate in the same way. But there's one tiny ...

That very much depends on the type of backup you are talking about. As the photo was deleted, none of the usual backup approaches would cover it: a backup only takes what is there, not was was deleted. How to recover that photo (if possible) depends not at last on where it was stored: external SDCard: safely remove it from the device, and use a card ...

Short answer If there's no app using it, it should be safe. You can disable it and find out for yourself; but before really removing it (i.e. deleting the "service app"), you should be very sure. Though: if any app wants to use it, but you don't care about that app: as Samsung's push service isn't pre-installed on non-Samsung devices, the app should ...

My first suggestion would be to take a Nandroid backup (requires a custom Recovery) first if you've had an unpleasing incident on some other OS, or want to recover from one after fiddling with terminal on Android. I want to use the terminal emulator app to navigate my phone(messaging, camera, launch applications, [and so on).] Messaging and Camera (UI ...

Find a Play Store APK You can Google play store apk or something similar, find a suitable (trustworthy!) source like this one and sideload the APK. This does not require you to be rooted, or your bootloader to be unlocked, but it does require you to allow installation of apps from unknown sources (check your Security settings or equivalent) Flash Google ...

To uninstall apps. Open Settings and find the Application Manager and select the app you want to uninstall. Then you will see the option to uninstall it. If you only see disable, that means it's a system app and will require root to remove. What does "to root a phone" mean? How do I root my Android device? I've rooted my phone. Now what? ...

If its on the homescreen you could try to long press on it and drag it to the X or garbage can. That should remove it from your home screen.

As you have ADB available to use, here's one proposed way: Make a backup of your current installation (app and data): adb backup -f osmand.ab -apk net.osmand.plus Same, data only adb backup -f osmand-data.ab -noapk net.osmand.plus Uninstall the app (.apk) while keeping its data: adb uninstall -k net.osmand.plus Install the new version from play If ...

My buddy had the same problem and the only thing we could do to fix it was to install another keyboard like SwiftKey, Google keyboard, and etc. It seems that its a known issue and will have to wait for Samsung to fix it. Edit, I know this isn't a -fix- but at least its a workaround to get you through the day, Short of having to reboot the phone.

Settings > About Device > scroll down and tap on build number until you unlock dev options. Then hit back. Click on dev options and the built in CPU monitor should be in there. But that's just the overlay. Hope this helps. Otherwise, download a 3rd party one from the play store.

It is calle Touch Screen Hoverings or Air View. This is a feature in new Samsung Phones. For more infor you can look at the documentation on the Samsung Website here. Hope my answer helps!

The time that it takes to receive the update on your phone can take some time because it will vary per device. If Samsung will let everyone update their phone at the same time when the update is available then their servers will crash because everyone is downloading the update at the same time. To solve this problem you can update your phone with Samsung ...

As said, most automation apps can perform this task, Automate is another free alternative. Here's some user-made automations for toggling the GPS when viewing Google Maps: http://llamalab.com/automate/community/?q=gps+maps A rooted device is required, but it may be possible to workaround using UI automation.

Usually, flashing of the ROMs only affects files that are stored on your /system partition. Photos are stored on a SD card, and won't be deleted when you flash a ROM. As for deleted photo, once it's deleted it can't be restored by normal methods. You could try restoring deleted files (there are many articles on the Internet regarding that, try searching for ...
