This is not a rumor: the notification history is a true feature from Android 4.3, although they don't make any mention of it in their What's New page. The following steps will allow you to take advantage from the Notification History in a vanilla Android Jelly Bean 4.3: Go to your app drawer, then tap the Widgets tab. Scroll until you reach Settings ...

The before and after screenshots of the about screen confirm that I had the exact same Android, Baseband, and Kernel versions, as well as the same Build Number Actually, they do not. The first screenshot shows a build number of JWR66V, and the second is JWR66Y. An official changelog has not been released, but T-Mobile's documentation indicates that the ...

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/...

Only the main user (owner) has access to Developer Options. Related question: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/14223748/android-4-2-developer-settings-still-unavailable

It means that you have NFC enabled. Some manufacturers (LG and HTC, I know for certain) have started adding an icon to let you know that you have NFC enabled since it can have potential security implications related to mobile payment systems. It would also be useful to know if you intend to use features like Android Beam. If you'd like to get rid of the ...

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 ...

They are stored in /mnt/shell/emulated/ I've just created a restricted profile and it created a new folder in there with the name "10", the main admin users folder is "0". You should be able to copy the files into the relevant place within these folders to get mine craft to pick them up. (This was done on the 2012 Nexus 7 but I don't think it will be any ...

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 ...

Follow these steps, if the icon in (3) has a line through it then it will not store your location in your images. Open the menu Choose settings Tap the location icon

Not a full-fledged answer, as even an excerpt would make it a rather long post, but here are some things you could try: An XDA article describes How To Backup and Restore using tar on adb shell. The article holds complete scripts for both. Still you should not execute them straight ahead as they are, but first use e.g. the mount command (without parameters) ...

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!

As of this moment, it is not possible to convert a user into a profile. However, you could create a profile based on the existing user. Downside: Since a profile doesn't have a Google account tied to it, they can't have a GMail app. And as you have already mentioned, they would also lose those user-specific data. UPDATE #1: From Android.com, it says that ...

So I tried to "Clear Data", instead of just "Clear Cache" in the Google Service Framework (and Forced Stop). I then ran the checkin again (Dial *#*#2432546#*#* in the phone app), and now I'm being shown the new Android 4.3 System Update.

To fix this issue, set TitaniumBackup to use the legacy path. The easiest way to do this is to go into TitaniumBackup, press "Menu" and then "Preferences". "Backup folder location" a bit down and click it. Click "DETECT!" and TitaniumBackup will ask you where to scan for backup locations. It's very important that you here choose to scan your whole device and ...

Looking a bit further I discovered that I have to click 7 times on Build number on phone details to enable the Developer settings.

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, ...

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. ...

I don't know whether Tasker can meanwhile handle that itself, but it's at least doable with the right plugin. There's e.g. Locale NFC Plugin which could fill this gap. Alternatives exist as well, like a modified version of AnyTag, which is used e.g. in this tutorial. For more examples, tutorials, and possibilities, I recommend a GoogleFu, ahem, search for "...

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.

On rooted system change in xml file for user in /data/system/users/ flags from 16 to 24 Example: user id="11" serialNumber="13" flags="24" created="1373565328127" lastLoggedIn="1376779161829" icon="/data/system/users/11/photo.png" Here are the constants https://android.googlesource.com/platform/frameworks/base.git/+/android-4.2.2_r1/core/java/android/...

With 4.3, Android apparently has three types of user: primary user (admin, owner) secondary users restricted profiles Primary user is the first user created for the device, when setting it up. All users (the primary user and secondary users) have pretty much equal control of the system - they can alter all the system settings, create more users, etc. but ...

I had a similar problem with Subway Surfers. I finally found that profile data was under: /data/user/<user_id_number> Hope this helps.

Trigger can, among other things, run Tasker tasks. In any case, it's probably worth while to check out this app if you plan on experimenting with NFC tags.

Try disabling the notification then restart your tablet and see if it reappears: Go to Settings > Application Manager > All > Google Services Framework and then uncheck "Show notifications". Are you rooted? If so, and if disabling the notification doesn't work, try freezing or uninstalling the update apk: Use Root Explorer or ES Explorer and ...

The second user will have to explicitly install the wanted app (in your example: Facebook) – as otherwise all accounts' app drawers would be cluttered with a bunch of apps not wanted by everybody, except for those who installed them. But if the app already had been installed before by another account, it will rather be a "fake install" (i.e. it appears as if ...

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/...
