I had the same problem getting Android to really install the certificate, until I found this site which describes a method that worked for me. It boils down to the following steps: Create a private key and public x509 certificate with v3_req extensions and enabled as a CA: sudo openssl req -x509 -nodes -days 365 -newkey rsa:4096 -keyout /etc/ssl/private/...

That is expected behavior. It allows you to turn the phone off if you need to ensure the battery doesn't drain (or whatever other use-case you can think up) and still have a usable alarm clock. It's not new, many Android devices do something similar, and every iPhone since the first-generation models also had that feature. I can also recall an old Nokia 3310 ...

I found the setting, and something interesting as well: Settings > Accessibility > Flash notification When I came into the settings it was already unchecked, yet my phone was exhibiting behavior as if it was. I had to check the setting and exit the menus. Then I went back in to uncheck the setting and exited the menus again. This time the setting ...

I had faced the same problem myself. System settings > device > accessibility > services. Something in there is set to On. Switch it to off and you will be OK. I had the same problem because I had an application set to on. Instant fix!

This is a famous issue affecting USB file access over MTP. I can't even remember how many hours I've lost trying to access files created by my first app on a PC (and I'm talking about GBs of important files). If you start the app and it creates the folder, then you have to reboot the device in order to let your PC be able to correctly display the folder. ...

If you have cleared your Google Service Framework data to receive the update, it will change your device ID that Google uses to recognise your device. This also affects the tokens used by some apps (i.e. Google Now, Google Search, Chrome) and they won't connect to the Google servers properly and refuse to work for a while (this was like 24~48 hours for me, ...

As Meer Borg correctly states in his answer: when an app is installed, the package manager reads its Manifest, and notes the permissions requested into files the Android system controls (/data/system/packages.xml, /system/etc/permissions/*.xml (one file per app)). Additionally, for each permission there is a specific user group, which will be assigned to the ...

This is because of the update not being done on a clean install. Also Samsung phones have TouchWiz overlay on android which is a bit heavy. To make your phone fast do a full factory reset after taking a full data backup so that you can restore everything! Doing this would clean up any mess left behind by the update process. Always try and do a clean install ...

Above answer only stops them from appearing, it doesn't remove them. For that you'll need to root. Here's a guide that kind of answers your problem: Be careful! Droidviews: Removing Stock Apps.

Unless rooted, there is no way of uninstalling stock (system) apps. That being said, even rooted uninstalling a stock app does not give you any usable free space (they're not on "user storage"). Disabling these app however, as suggested before, gives you all the other benefits you desire even on a stock, non-rooted Android.

As far I know this is a security "feature" on Android devices that don't let you open personal data through widgets when you set a lock code or a lock pattern. Only works if you don't have no security set.

I also recently upgraded my Note2 from 4.1 to 4.3 and was having the same problem. I installed the Wakelock Detector by UzumApps and found that the Noom Walk pedometer app was waking the screen. I uninstalled the Noom Walk app and the screen no longer wakes. The Noom developers have posted a test APK which can be found here: http://noom.uservoice.com/forums/...

For Auto Backup access there are several options open to you. Phone: Select the Gallery app which should bring up a listing of your Albums. One of your albums will be titled Auto Backup (assuming you have photos/videos in the album - otherwise the album will not appear). Website: Google+ Auto Backup Website: Picasa Web

The following is the way I enable additional spell checkers on my Galaxy Nexus which runs on vanilla Android 4.3, I hope it will be the same for your Moto G: Open your app drawer and go to Settings > Language & input Scroll down to Keyboard & Input Methods section: If your Google Keyboard is enabled, tap its settings button, if not, enable it first. ...

On my phone (moto x) I had to go to the People app, touch the three dot icon, and touch "contacts to display" option. Then select the "back up assistant" option instead of any other option in order to only display those contacts that are stored on my phone.

Since you bought your phone from Kuwait, the phone has the Kuwait Galaxy Note 2 Rom, and still now the 4.3 update has not been pushed out in Kuwait or the middle east region for both the note 2 and s3. But for the Indian Rom 4.3 has already been pushed out for both the phones. My brother had the same problem with his s3 and since I have some knowledge in ...

Here's the solution that worked for me. When 4.3 came out the first thing i did was place all my apps on the SD card which was great for freeing up space on the phone. Unfort. all app notification settings reset upon reboot as you described which was super frustrating. Specifically i'm talking about the app notification check box you see in every app when in ...

First of all you don't tell us what exactly apps you uninstalled there is a chance that you uninstalled some app that cannot be replaced by just adding gapps. Varius gapps for all the versions can be found here https://goo.im/gapps/ please be carefull to choose the right version according to the version of Android installed on your smartphone. You should ...

It really would be nice to have some startup manager shipping with the system, which lets the user decide what to start and what not. But that's not the case, it works a bit different: Apps with the "run at startup" permission can register a "listener" for the BOOT_COMPLETED broadcast ­– which the system always issues on that event. This way they get ...

The /system folder contains your operative system. That is why it won't boot anymore. Xiaomi's default MiRecovery permits only installing a ROM located in your root directory (the main folder, corresponding to location /) and named update.zip. Since you can't access your phone directly, you have to put this file in it using your computer. This will include ...

After a long time of researching I found this useful link: http://www.gridshore.nl/2013/09/30/setting-up-keys-to-sign-emails-in-samsungs-android-email-app/ It seems to be the case that it is not trivial to make android to find the keys. You need to place them in a special folder with a special filename. But the worst is that samsungs email client ...

You are rooted. AFAIK Samsung bootloaders are already unlocked, you only need to flash the recovery to get the "root" Now for the problem. Go to settings->about phone and tap the build number 7 times to enable developer options. Then go to settings->developer options and there you should be an option similar to root access. Make sure you select Apps ...

You can easily update your Galaxy S4 to Android 5.0.1 Lollipop without root. As you have shared the screenshots, it shows your device is up-to-date but your region might have not received the latest update yet. But you can check the sammobile firmware page over here. It clearly shows that Lollipop 5.0.1 has been released for those regions, Now If your ...

You can expand it by touching the notification and dragging down. The touch part of the gesture is very brief, so it feels like a single, quick gesture. This works on Android 7.1, I can't confirm for earlier versions myself, but would be interested I hearing if it works in earlier versions also. Android 7.1 also shows a little caret (arrow) pointing down to ...

Had similar problem with Google Nexus7 (2012). To solve it I passed next steps: Uninstalled incorrect Nexus USB drivers. 1) Previously, I installed windows default MTP driver to have ability to connect the device. It was a bad solution, because it made a problem for me to install new drivers. Each time I tried to install latest_usb_driver_windows.zip from ...

A couple of points for those swinging in from Google.. Uninstalling an app in one user account doesn't remove it from the other, unless you use Titanium or similar, in which case it is GONE. If you install an app at the Play Store web site, it installs into the primary user "desktop", even if you are logged into another desktop using the exact same account ...

Each application you install has a file called manifest.xml in it that dictates what the app is allowed to access. When you install an app it checks that file and shows you what permissions are needed to install that Application. So unless your phone is rooted, and uses an exploit. Or you repackage that file and its manifest file to add more permissions......

There's no gurantee that they'll work, but API compatibility when upgrading is a standing tenet of Android. The odds are very high (above 90%) that they'll work no problem. In the end, whether they work or not depends on you, as the developer. As an Android developer, you should probably read the documentation released with new API's for the features and ...

Those of you who had tried OTA (over the air) or used KIES to update - and failed. My recommendation is FLASH your smartphone using software. I went to an authorised Samsung dealer who flashed my phone - and didn't have to backup either - and it took only 10 - 15 minutes, in total. Flashing uses proprietary software.
