Are you using the stock launcher or a custom one?

comment Is there a way to adjust the memory allocation to increase the allocation for apps?
You can't add more internal memory to the tablet, if that's what you mean. Move some more apps to the SD card so that they don't take up space in the internal memory.

Note that swapping will wear out your flash memory more quickly.

comment Can I upgrade my Android if i have low resolution?
How do you plan to upgrade? Has the manufacturer released an update, or would you be installing a custom ROM? If the latter, which one? Note that Android 3.x was for tablets only, so if you upgrade past 2.3, you'd want to jump straight to 4.x.

comment KitKat uninstalling app from device
I've seen something similar when an app is installed in someone else's profile but not my own, so make really sure you don't still have it installed in any other profiles.

comment Post-rooting: updating Android and modifying system files?
Android uses the Linux kernel, but its userspace is quite different from a GNU/Linux system. Don't expect to be able to configure everything through text files in /etc. And if you go modifying system files or replacing the kernel, don't expect official updates to work properly.

comment How to add root permission to some app by myself?
That'd make the app start a root shell, but it still won't be used for anything. The app would still be accessing files through the normal Android API, not by feeding commands to that root shell.

comment Can apps know where you are even without GPS?
Any app that has Internet permission can potentially do IP geolocation.

comment Can apps know where you are even without GPS?
Turning off GPS prevents apps that have LOCATION_FINE from getting your precise location. They're limited to your approximate location without GPS.
