I am getting shortcuts in my home screen. I try to delete it, but it is appearing once again. Shortcuts names: Lucky try, Recommended.
Looks like a spammy app. Check the ones you've installed last before this trouble started:
- From your home screen, go to the Android Settings › Apps
- scroll the list to find above mentioned apps. For each app:
- open its entry
- scroll down to the end of the page opening, where you should find the permissions listed (which the app has requested)
- check if the app has the permission to create shortcuts
Alternatively, use a Permission Checker – aSpotCat is a good candidate for this, CRAM App Analyser seems to be capable of the same: showing you all existing permissions, and on selecting one of them, all the apps requesting it.
The related permission goes by the name
INSTALL_SHORTCUT, and most likely will be titled "Install Shortcuts" or something similar.
Once you found the possible culprit, get rid of it: uninstall the app (if multiple, only one a time) and see whether the issue goes away. If the whole racket ended, you've got the troublemaker eliminated – and in case you've uninstalled other apps before on this road, it should be safe to re-install those as they were most likely not causing the issue.
You need to have a rooted phone. Using any root explorer, simply delete
kinguser.apk app from
Look for "ExpandPointWall" and a fake "Settings" app and uninstall them.
