clean format to kill spice bloatware
Friday 25th of January 2013
I have spice android phone model number mi-280. It has android gingerbread 2.3.6. now spice guys have installed a lot of bloatware. It really sucks that I can’t get ‘em out of my phone. I’ve scoured internet for answers but to no avail. My internal memory has clogged because of this crap. I’ve rooted my phone, made a 2gb partition on my 16 gb microsd card. I’v installed link2sd so that all apps get installed on SD card, it works to some extent but internal memory gets clogged up little bit. For example if I try to install say 9 mb app on my phone, 3 mb will get reduced in internal memory and the rest would be installed via link2sd on my 2gb partition of sd card. I’m fed up now. I want to clean up everything in my android phone. Making it have nothing , nothing. Start from scratch I want to do an installation in my phone. Just like we clean up the harddisk of pc and do a windos reinstall, I wanna do that kind of thing. How can I do it? That must make me get rid of that bloody spice bloatware I hope lol!!
HELP! Soft bricked my phone, nothing works!
Tuesday 02nd of October 2012
Well, it all started a few months ago. And ended.I decided to plug my Android phone into the windows side of my hackintosh, where I installed drivers and LG tool that asked me to pick my phone and update the rom on it. I mistakenly chosen MS670 or something, not realizing that mine was indeed an MS690. Anyways, afterwards my phone was stuck in a boot cycle. A black LG logo, a little Android beside an arrow shooting out of a marketplace shopping bag, the MetroPCS flash screen, and back again. Fast forward to this morning, I decided to unbrick it myself, than send it in. I followed this guide and the guide within it for setting up drivers:Unbrick Phone from LG ScreenAfter several attempts, the progress stops at 45% to tell me to replace flash memory or something. Each and every time. I have also uninstalled completely, then used CCleaner to clean up and fix registry and restarted from the beginning and each and every single time it stops at 45%.I know there can't be something internally wrong with it, I babied the phone! it lived in my desk for months! PLEASE HELP!!!!
Need Nexus 4 compatible external memory for holiday
Friday 16th of August 2013
Hello everyone Android Central Forums!I have a big problem I hope you could solve... In 6 days I'm going on a cruise and I will take a lot of photos with my Nexus 4 and I will probably need a way to backup my photos in an external drive to clean the internal memory. If the Nexus 4 supported USB OTG I would use some pendrives, but since it isn't supported I really don't know what to do... I can't use Google+/Google Drive either since I won't be able to access internet on the ship.Moreover I want to avoid bringing my PC with me, it's just useless during a holiday.I would need some sort of wifi or bluetooth hard drive... Any suggestions? Thank you!
Device Memory was low, rebooted phone, got stuck in splash screen
Sunday 24th of November 2013
I downloaded something that took up all my phone memory, un-installed some things, then rebooted. Then the phone got stuck in the splash screen. So then researched further and found out about holding the three buttons, then pushed the volume up key. Now it's got the green android logo and saying download, do not turn off, it's been at least 20 minutes. I have no idea what to do, be patient, yank the battery? Any advice? If I can get it started again, what's a good way to clean out the phone. Thanks.
Can't Install Apps on my Samsung Galaxy Y GT-S5360 (2.3.6)
Sunday 29th of June 2014
Hie guys, I need some help, I have my Android ver. 2.3.6 Samsung Galaxy Y GT-S5360 rooted phone, I leave it quite a while. It works perfectly when I finished rooted the phone. I connect to internet, etc. But When my sister wanted to use it for couple of months, then she gave it to me, I notice that there is a bunch of apps that Lag the phone. So I've decided to Reset the phone to it's default. Then after I reset it, everything is clean but with one problem, Some apps can be installed and some cannot. I don't know why, I try different techniques to solve the issue but It's just can't. I can install it when I was holding the phone, But when I reset it, Cannot do it anymore. Not all apps cannot be install, But most of my favorite apps are. So anybody can help me? I have no Sim Card, But I have SD CARD, I try to unmount it and install, not working, My Internal Memory is super free of space. So I don't know what should be the problem. :/
Cleaning up memory
Sunday 20th of July 2014
Okay so just out of curiosity what is everyone's habits for cleaning up memory on the Moto X? For example, no matter what memory size you have 16 gig or 32 gig when you go into settings and then storage do you dump your cache and your temporary files and clean up every now and then or just leave it there? I have noticed though that when I cleaned up my cache memory, and then going to my photo gallery it says no external memory available doesn't let me view my photos unless I reboot my phone completely. Kind of weird. Posted via Android Central App
Should I use a memory manager app?
Saturday 30th of August 2014
Hi How good is Android 4.4.2 (Kitkat) on Galaxy Note 3 at memory management? Is there any need to use memory clean up ?e.g. I was using a couple of different memory management apps on my Note 2 (which I lost at the bottom of a canal), e.g. Clean Master Phone Boost? (100million downloads, btw!)ALSO what about things like JuiceDefender for extending battery life? Any views?J

how do i clean the memory on my android device
Friday 13th of February 2015
I have a tracfone android device. I think I have downloaded some trash because the phone apps are not shutting down immediately and the phone also seems to stutter when I am trying to play my games on it. I have noticed that there are buttons to clear data on many of the apps, what happens if I hit the clear data button on each app. Also it says I have only like 175 mega bytes of memory left and have used 454 mega bytes of memory, How can I free up some more memory? Also I have a 4 gig chip in the phone and cannot transfer pictures to it so how can I transfer pictures from the internal memory to the sd chip?
Clean Master by CM
Thursday 02nd of April 2015
I've been using my Turbo for ~2 months. After removing McAfee I still have lag. Typing takes forever to catch up. I did a CM clean and it identified 2.6GB of "junk files." Should I abide by the philosophy of task killers? Should the Turbo be self-sustaining? I'm undoubtedly getting lag, and I can't find out why; especially with the majority of users and reviewers speaking to the "crisp, snappy processor." I did free up memory. I went from 51% memory full to 48% memory full after using Clean Master. Posted via the Android Central App
