I believe you have an app installed that monitors other apps. For example, an app called earn talktime does the same. These apps launch other apps (on installing and updating) for monitoring whether that app was installed through their offer or not. Simply uninstall any app like that and the issue would be gone.

I downloaded this and flashed it using odin (windows running in virtualbox) and it worked. Using the Uzbekistan firmware should work too, from my own experience. But don't root it using CF-Auto-Root it will break your phone and you'll have to flash it again.

According to Google 18 months is the OS life. "Nexus devices may not receive the latest version of Android if they fall outside of the update window, which is usually around 18 months after a device has been released." https://support.google.com/nexus/answer/4457705?hl=en

Probably Not. Android updates before Lollipop checked each system file and replaced them but after Lollipop, the updates check the whole system block as a part and update it. Since rooting modifies the system files, the System Block won't match and the update will abort. Since you have a custom recovery, the update won't even go that far because you need ...

For a smartphone, you can expect security updates to be supported for 18-24 months. Google says Nexus devices receive updates for 18 months. Nexus devices may not receive the latest version of Android if they fall outside of the update window, which is usually around 18 months after a device has been released. The Nexus line is nominally supposed to ...

It depends on your manufacturer and carrier to deliver the update. My guess is that it would only be the newest models or this past year's flagships that would be updated in a reasonable amount of time. If you have the understanding and really want the update, I know many of the custom ROM's will be updated well before any of the carrier stock images. I ...

Most likely, a lot of Android devices will not receive the update. Only devices that have received updates recently from the manufacturer (Such as Samsung GS6) are likely to receive the security patch. Device like mine (LG Optimus Fuel/Zone 2) that have never received updates for any reason, will most likely be left vulnerable to the security issue. I am ...

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 ...

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 ...

You haven't specified your model number... Anyway, if you update via the OTA Updates from within your phone,then the update shouldn't wipe your data/factory reset. But just to be safe, backup your data. Copy your photos, app data, documents etc to your PC. So if the update goes wrong and it wipes your data, you can still restore your data from the ...

Sounds like you need to update your Google Play Account and remove the old credit card. From your phone hit Google Play store app, go to your account, go add a payment method, or edit an existing one. Once there delete the old card and add the new one.

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. You will have to make sure the app you are installing originally is signed with the same key as the one in the Play store. There is no way to get around this security requirement (matching ...

You're going to want to clear the cache of your Google services on the device. Note that this will remove your Google Account from the device - so you'll have to re-add it. Navigate to Settings > Applications > Manage Applications > All Clear the data for Google Play Services, Google Service Framework and Google Play Store Reboot the device Log ...

Update will took some time to become available in every country. If you check on Sammobile, 5.0.2 was released today (2015-07-16), and it is for United Kingdom. There no version for other countries. You can flash UK version via Odin, but better wait some days for it to get released for other countries. After that you should be able to update it via OTA, ...

Download the Samsung USB Drivers and install them on your PC. With the drivers installed, you will be able to successfully connect your tablet to your PC. ODIN is the application that you will have to use in order to flash the updates files on your Galaxy Tab 4. Make sure that you don’t have any antivirus app running nor the Samsung KIES program. Enable ...

On some phones it can take very long, even to half an hour, so try to wait a little more. If that does not help you should try to do a factory reset and wipe /cache & /dalvik partition (from Recovery, if you have access to it). Usually this procedure would solve the issue: stuck on boot animation/reboot loops.

To answer your question: Installing the zip will delete (or change some apps) but not all. When you flash the zip it overwrites the "system" partition on your phone and so it changes which system apps are on your phone. Since google apps are system apps, but are not included in the CM zip, this is why you have to reflash gapps after because they get ...

The answers given were great but I felt something needed to be added: If you boot into Android, you should be able to download the OTA file directly from your web browser.

It may be problem by the rom clear the data clear dalvik cache reinstall ROM This may help cause you may have directly the ROM without clearing data Footnote: Though in Android 5, Dalvik was replaced by ART, parts of the Dalvik stuff are still used (/data/dalvik-cache/arm/*; also see e.g. Should Dalvik Cache be wiped in ART). While in the end, ...

This device doesn't meet the minimum hardware requirement to run Android Kitkat. Google has mentioned here: Device implementation MUST have at least 340MB of memory available to the kernel and userspace. The 340MB must be in addition to any memory dedicated to hardware components such as radio, video, and so on that is not under the kernel's control. ...

Notes: OP already know the details, but I've elaborated things considering other readers in mind. I've assumed that the device is rooted, and my solution is tested on Android 4.2, 4.4 and 5.0, all running Play Store v5.6.8. (Sorry! couldn't test it on Kitkat but no reason to believe that it wouldn't work.) The solution by Craig is actually quite ...

Don't update your phone via root otherwise you will lose your previous root permissions and then you will need to re root your device.

root will not get you banned from the updates you can update your phone normally via kies on PC or on the phone it self if the update is supported to be flashed from the phone ,however I must add that you will probably lose the root access on your phone after the update

Turn off Wifi during the intial setup, it will skip that screen as all updates exceed 20-30MB which is deemed too large to do on a mobile connection.

For Samsung devices (unbranded ones) the answers are pretty simple: As long as the model is the same (exactly the same, even the characters after the numbers), the ROM is compatible. (Usually the bare models without any special characters after them have more international firmwares). Yes, it's enough if you flash an international/regional firmware on top ...
