Going by the OP's comment, I'll just leave my comment as an answer. Dragging the app icon to the "trash bin" will uninstall the app if it is not a system app. From the OP's comment, it appears that this is indeed a system app, and so to remove the icon on stock (AOSP or most custom, e.g. Not MIUI or ZenUI) launchers, it would need to be held down and ...

After using adb to remove the data for the packages org.cyanogenmod.theme.chooser and org.cyanogenmod.themes.provider, as suggested above and elsewhere, and also after cleaning the data in trebuchet on the phone (by way of trial and error), the only thing that really made the Theme Chooser work again was a clean flash: download the latest cyanogenmod (and ...

Note: the commands in this solution requires adb setup in PC and the solution is tested on Android 4.2.1, 5.0.2 and 5.1.1. If you don't have any keyboard app installed in the system, then either use web version of Play Store to remotely install a keyboard app in your system (requires active internet connection in your device) or obtain the APK of your ...

You cannot uninstall the browser bundled with the phone (unless you're rooted); you can though disable it, without affecting any other browser you installed. How depends on the phone model and the os version you're running. On mine I would go into Settings -> Apps -> (app name) -> Disable.

Going into the app info may also trigger the crash. One possible way to avoid that, is to use adb: adb shell pm clear com.android.settings Now clearing the app data may not be enough. I had to do, as root: rm -fR /data/data/com.android.settings

I've never used google photos myself, but this sounds like it just needs you to download the photo to your local memory then set that to your wallpaper? I don't see why that wouldn't work... Hope this helps

I figured out a solution. Drag down from the top edge to reveal the "Notification Panel." Within the customization options for the Notification Panel there's a mobile hotspot shortcut (on my phone). You can make that shortcut more prominent by adjusting the Notification Panel configuration.

This app can lock your screen in landscape: Rotation Locker - Google Play and doesn't require root. I recommend this app because it has no permissions, is <100KB (no ads), and if you use Tasker, this app also has Tasker integration. The explanation for your problem is that carriers and phone brands often decide "you don't need this feature" and just ...

*#0011#* is the code I used on my S4 VE. Also, I used the Phone info app - it has a tab that has the Android dial codes.

I solved my problem by installing Locale More from Play Store and choosing English (Europe). It's better if you choose one of the preset combinations, as not all apps recognize custom ones (for example you can set en_GR, but not all apps recognize this and fallback to en_US).
