How To Stop Apps from Updating?


Sunday 07th of October 2012 / androidforums.com
I know it sounds strange, but I'm rooted and running a custom ROM on my Galaxy S3. In the ROM, there is a modified version of the Apex Launcher with some custom icons. My phone already automatically updated the launcher before and it removed all of the cool custom icons that were there. So I'd like to prevent that from happening again.I have all of my apps set to automatically update on their own except Apex Launcher. When I rebooted my phone, it began trying to update Apex anyway, probably because restarting reset the settings and caused it to forget that I specifically don't want that app updated.There's an option in Titanium Backup called "Detach from Market" or something to that effect and I tried doing it, but it didn't seem to detach from the Google Play Store. So I'm wondering if there's anything else that I could do to keep this app from updating if possible.I was able to revert the changes because this app has been made into a system app by the dev who made this ROM so when you go into Settings>Applications and try to remove the app, it only says "Uninstall

Please help with Apex Launcher issue


Sunday 12th of August 2012 / androidforums.com
I love the Apex Launcher, ever since my factory reset and subsequent install of ICS 4.0.3 I have used it (on GB I used TWLauncher, didn't even know about Apex and was going to use TW again until someone told me to try Apex and I haven't looked back since).I have an issue, and within it, a question about functionality.How does Apex, or other after market launchers, work? Do they just work like all other apps, meaning that they launch from the regular ICS launcher and then take over, running over top? This would explain the issue I'm about to talk about, but also means that after market launchers do not replace the original, but merely run on top if it (which seems like a waste to me, like installing LINUX then having Windows 7 runs from it).Here is what is happening on my phone:Every so often, perhaps once every 20 launches of an app, or once every 10 gmail launches, when I exit the app (usually Gmail, but I noticed it happenes with others apps to, albeit very rarely), instead of seeing Apex Launcher, I see the original ICS launcher. Luckily, the APEX icon is right there, so it's just

Monday 22nd of April 2013 / androidforums.com
IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHY DO I WANT TO KNOW HOW TO DO IT, READ THIS IF YOU KNOW HOW TO DO THIS AND DONT WANT TO READ ALL THS S... SCROLL DOWN TO THE "SO BASICALLY" LINE.I have the android.process.acore and google.process... problem i tried literally everything and nothing works. Im at the point of doing a factory reset but need to backup first.The problem is that the error wont let Titanium Backup to open when on normal mode, and it wont show up in the app drawer when on safe mode (but the app shortcuts in the nova launcher desktop do appear). I tried moving titanium backup when on normal mode to the desktop but when i restart it, TB dissapears from the desktop and only the apps that where on the desktop before the problem started, would appear.SO BASICALLY: How do i run TB in Safe Mode?? Also if i make a TB backup, would i be able to restore it in a non-root device???PD: Im from Dominican Republic, so yeah, dont judge my grammar

Launcher Crashes Instantly - Can't Change Launcher


Sunday 10th of June 2012 / androidforums.com
Hello All,I have been using Espier Launcher as my launcher for a while, but this morning I woke up to find that they must have pushed out an update for the launcher, and now it crashes instantly after beginning to run. Because of this, it won't display my apps, and I have no way of loading the main setting menu and changing the launcher app. I'm stuck in a unending cycle of force closing the app, it reloading and then instantly crashing and repeat.Does anyone have an idea how to change the launcher without going through the setting menu? Is there a way to hook the phone up to my computer and do something? Do I need to somehow completely reset the phone and start over?The only thing my phone will do currently is report the crash to google and accept incoming phone calls. Even when I'm in an active phone call, if I try to load the home screen, it still crashes but the phone call stays active.Any help would be greatly appreciated! I'm in a business where I need to be available all the time, and it's crippling my business not having a phone! Luckily, I use Google contacts, so none of my

But my problem is I can't find in app the "standard" launcher to do a reset.Someone can help me?RegardsCarlos

Galaxy S4 Weather Widget and Launcher adapted for S3 almost brick it


Tuesday 10th of December 2013 / androidforums.com
Hi, Recently I have tried to instal a .zip of a Weather Widget of Galaxy S4 that was modified to be used on Galaxy S3 (from Instale o Widget de tempo (Weather) do Galaxy S4 no seu Galaxy S3 [Tutorial] ) . Maybe because it was made for Android 4.1 and nowadays I use the 4.3 , after the installation not only it wansnt shown, but the defaul widget gave a message like "app error" or similar. And once in a while it says that the launcher stopped working. In the meantime I got aware of a kind of weather widgets and launchers from Galaxy S4 that were possible to be installed in any Jellybean device (DGrulesit : Android Development Area: Galaxy S4 Launcher and AccuWeather Widget for All Android Phones on Jelly Bean ). I followed all the steps, but after the boot it showed the message that the System UI has stopped , and it showed only a black screen with nothing working. Luckly I had made a backup before, so I hard reset the phone and installed the backup, so there it comes the questions:1-How to restore the default weather widget? 2-Is there any safe weather widget from Galaxy S4

Stealth Trio App Closing Issue


Saturday 11th of January 2014 / forums.androidcentral.com
Hi, I have a Stealth Trio 10.1" tablet with Android 4.1, I am not overly familiar with how Android works, but I got it 3 weeks ago and I haven't done anything special with it other than install some apps (mostly news, some other general apps, and a couple games). I tried to make sure they were all decently reviewed and virus free etc. I used it for about 2 weeks and then last week one night it started acting a little slow and buggy and the next morning I couldn't do anything with it other than get into the settings with message popping sometimes one every second saying "The launcher has stopped" or "Google play has stopped" and various other messages. I looked around online briefly and didn't really see any good ideas other than that it could be a virus and the best thing to do is to do a factory reset, which I did and it worked fine for a day and I put a lot of the apps back on left out a few, and added an additional few, and after about a day and a half it started acting buggy again, and once again it has started giving me the same messages, though not at t
