Cannot Install, Update Apps Or Clear Cache Data - Samsung Galaxy Nexus


Can't install, uninstall or update any apps either through google play on phone or through internet. When trying on my phone, the screen gets stuck at the blue progress line ("installing", "uninstalling", etc. ) And never completes. Back button doesn't leave the screen, but the home button and recent apps button will get me out, and i can go back to the settings>apps screen and try again.

Can't clear cache or data for any apps from the settings>apps. All apps say "computing. " For storage and cache info and never change. In settings>apps>running a number of games (small street, contract killer, stardom, e. Warriors, etc. ) Auto-start and keep coming back after i force close or reboot.

Here's what i've done so far to try to fix it. Reboot, shut down, battery pull. Force close every suspicious app. Certain apps keep coming back. Tried to clear cache of google play store app, but it doesn't seem to clear. Also, clear data, uninstall update never completed. Read more at the forum.

App For Clear Cache Data

I would be more than happy to pay for an app that cleared cache data. Ideally, with the ability to select which apps get cleared. Like the browser, market, etc. A one touch button to clear all selected apps cache data would be very handy since it doesn't sound like google is ever going to let us move stuff like that to the sd card. (Which is another rant altogether. )

What Apps Do I Install On My New Samsung Galaxy Nexus ?

I already got help here with my first post, so here goes number 2. I ordered a new unlocked gangland nexus. It is replacing my iphone 4. I found out i had to swap out the sim card and i should be up and running. Ok, what do i do next? This is my first droid phone. I have read how to export my contacts to gmail and that will transfer them over to my new phone. I don't want my calender entries, i hope i can do that directly form outlook.

So what do i install? I know the standards apps, but what else should i do to my phone. Root it? I already know that i have to make sure that it has something with a bunch of letters in it to make sure i get updates. Is there a tutorial or a great post that someone can steer me too.

Non Market Apps Install Problem On Samsung Galaxy Nexus

I am new galaxy nexus user though i am not new to the android os as i using an acer e130 android 2. 1. Now, my dad bought this unit in saudi arabia, and i have received it hours ago here in the philippines. Immediately after i got the unit, i downloaded some non-market apps and tried to transfer these to my unit via usb. At first, a message popped out in the screen, didn't mind it and then clicked 'transfer anyway'. Transfer success. I then disconnected the usb from the unit and opened settings > storage > misc. I tried clicking the files but nothing happens. I had also clicked the 'allow non-market apps to be installed', but still can't install it!

Did anyone experience this?

My galaxy nexus is an android 4. 0. 2.

Phone Closes All Apps That Were Open, When Screen Goes To Sleep - Samsung Galaxy Nexus

I just noticed that when the screen goes to sleep the phone closes all apps that were open. For example, i was playing angry birds and stopped to talk to someone. After 30 seconds or whatever the screen went to sleep and when i woke it i was back at my home screen. When i went back to the app it had to start from scratch. It does this all of the time, now that i am paying attention. Is this normal? I assume a battery saving thing?

Issue: When I Clear Data Files, It Removes All Contacts - Lg Optimus V

I clear my contacts/phone/call log storage every so often to free space on my phone. Doing so removes all my contacts. I do get them back, probably because they are all linked to my gmail account. Do i ever run a risk of losing my contacts permanently by clearing all data files from my call logs/phone/etc?

Htc One X Vs. Samsung Galaxy Nexus

I am in denmark / europe. So no g4 network for phones yet (bahhh), but free choice of carrier. I have had the htc desire since it came out, and my boss just asked me to buy him a new smartphone and to get one for myself. I am one happy camper. I use my smartphone mainly for e-mails, browsing, camera, team viewer, gps navigation, guitar tuner and listening to pod casts. I don't watch videos much on my desire. I am considering the htc one x or the the samsung galaxy nexus

Samsung Galaxy Nexus Will Not Charge Unless Its Off

I walked into my room to find my 18 mo old daughter with the tip of the mini usb charger that came with my sgn in her mouth. I quickly grabbed it, inspected it, and dried it off and nothing seemed to be wrong. She also had my sgn but i don't think anything was wrong with that either. But now my sgn will not charge unless it's off. If i power it on and insert the mini usb. Nothing. I even plugged the charger into my old og droid and it started charging right up. But when i hook it up to my sgn. Nothing. Unless it's off of course. ***? Also, nothing happens when i try to hook it up to my computer. And nothing happens when i use a different mini usb/charger. But it's not the mini usb since it started charging my og droid but not my sgn.

Help/suggestions?

Internet / Data Connection Problem - Samsung Galaxy S2

I have upgraded to a sg2 but i'm having issues connecting to the internet. I have the data network mode activated & my apn is 02 uk mobile web. However, i get 'internet not available' messages even if i have a good signal & a g showing. I can be standing in the same location that my old se symbian phone connected, although very slowly. And friends with different phones can connect. I hoped the new phone would work better not worse for the internet - the reviews said it was excellent! On the rare occasion i'm in a h area its fine but these spots are infrequent. Are there any other settings i need, any suggestions on how i can get this working.

Nfc Tags - Samsung Galaxy Nexus

I had read somewhere on this thread that someone was planning on getting nfc tags and programming them so they could use their gnex with them. One example this user provided was to create like an alarm tag so that at night before going to bed he could touch his phone to the tag and an alarm was automatically set.

How doable is all of this? And if i wanted to do this and play with nfc tags to use with my phone, how could i? Is there some sort of documentation people can point me to so that i could learn how to program tags? Is there hardware i need? Where can i purchase this hardware- and the tags for that matter? I think this would be something cool to try out, and play with. Maybe even show off to friends (insert iconic my android is better than your iphone because. Statement).

Bluetooth Bug - Samsung Galaxy Nexus

I have been experiencing a 100% repeatable bug affecting the bluetooth on my galaxy nexus. First a little background: i connect my gn to my car's bluetooth for hands-free, and i also connect it to the tunelink adapter for bluetooth audio playback because my car doesn't support it. Both devices only register as having the only profile they're capable of: the tunelink knows it can only do "media audio" and the car knows it can only do "phone audio. "

Now the problem: the problem is, when both devices are connected to the gn, every single phone call i make is a garbled mess. Ever since i got the tunelink, i've hand to initiate calls and then switch them to handset or speaker mode, and that's not a good thing when you have to drive in d. C. Every once and a while with their handsfree laws.

If i'm in the middle of one of these garbled calls and i unplug the tunelink and wait for the bluetooth connection to drop, the call clears up immediately. But this just isn't a suitable solution to the problem, and repeated stress on my car's power outlets isn't a good thing.

Does anyone have a solution? I can't get rid of the tunelink. It's by far the best product i've used for this purpose, and i listen to podcasts in my car all day every day (i do a lot of driving). Apparently 4. 0. 3 was going to have some bluetooth fixes, but i'll have to wait for a future update (and for verizon) before i see any of those, and who knows if they'll address this specific issue? This is so frustrating. I finally found a great product, and now i can't use it.

Oh, and i contacted tunelink, and they saw no problems on their end (naturally - not sure whether to believe them on that one). They said to wait for a bug fix.

Bluetooth Headphones - Samsung Galaxy Nexus

I work as a shipper/receiver and i'm allowed to listen to music at work. I primarly listen to tune in pro radio or google music. I'm not a big audiophile so i'm not concerned with sound that much, i just need to find a solution because i've gone through a lot of wired headphones at work as im constantly in and out of a forklift and ripping my phones outta the jack or my ears. I usually keep my phone in my pocket.

Does anyone have any experience with these guys? I've narrowed it down to four choices however i want to be sure they'll work with the phone in my pocket all day. Specifically does anyone have any reviews on either the sports and or freedoms i'm leaning towards these , other options appear to be motorola s10hd or lg sbh 700, any opinion appreciated!
