You can ask anyways and we will see if we can help. We do not have a section for eLocity devices yet.
Success Removing - Uninstalling applications.
After over a week of futility with Elocity telephone customer service and their non existent e-mail support, an executive (Bud) from Elocity telephone me today with SOLUTIONS!!!
Removing - Uninstalling applications.
Per Bud, Eocity is aware there is an issue with some older "Build" models (my build 2.0121). Here is Bud's solution, I did it, it works, applications & icons gone.
Visit this link Titanium Backup for Android ? Official Site download the Titanium Backup. You can download this directly to your Elocity tablet or as I did download it from my desktop PC to a jump drive. I inserted the jump drive into my Elocity tablet, located the file TitaniumBackup_latest.apk and installed it. I followed the on screen directions to make a backup, this took 10 seconds. From there I followed the Wiki instructions here (#7) TB - User's guide : Titanium Backup - Wiki
select uninstall and you could be a happy camper like I am now.
FYI: Elocity this morning released a firmware update available here: eLocity Customer Support
Once downloaded and installed check your Build version, should now be 2.0127 after firmware update..
You could be waiting awhile. If I had not heard from the MFG today I was sending mine back to ShopNBC for a refund Monday. I do not do business with companies that do not support their product. I can say eLocity CS is not knowledgeable about the product. Bud from eLocity informed me today the product has been released to the public for a few weeks, the showing on ShopNBC last weekend sold 6000 copies. Just like with any computer (software) release there will be a few glitches.I typed a long response to your last message, but I think I erased it doing all this rushing around the computer.
#1- Is the Titanium Backup similar to the Google Market Place? My grandson installed that and found out he did not like it at all and had to remove it. No
#2- Could we download the Titanium Backup to desktop and copy to SDHC and then insert that card in A7? Yes Or would that be the harder of the two? (My thinking is that the download to the A7 might be the easier.) Yes.
#3- Is the Titanium Backup another program that would take-up a lot of the A7 stoarge space? No Would it also install an icon on the desktop of the A7? Yes - from the desktop icon this program creates you can delete the useless ones (Amazon, Facebook).
#4- As you can tell, we know "nothing" about the A7 and programs, downloading, uninstalling, etc. Welcome to modern technology.
#5- Bezel? That's the outer edge around the screen.
We are now reading and re-reading your last message and trying to understand each step.
(We both tried reading the manual but it doesn't deal with the questions we had/have. Such as uninstalling apps and icons, etc.)
I (we) really appreciate your kind help and patience. Some folks seem to get angry at us for asking questions, but that is what we thought forums were for - asking questions. Not all of us are computer "whiz kids"
P.S. Do you think, because we are so unsure of ourselves, we should wait for that "fix" (about installing an uninstaller that works in the next firmware update) to be released?
Alice congratulations on your success.
If you can, now that you have the eLocity tablet to your configuration liking, make a backup, could not hurt, and only takes a few seconds.
Like you I removed Amazon, Amazon MP3, Facecrook, Twidroyd Pro, and IMDb.
I would leave the readers (Adobe, Aldiko, FBReader, Kindle) applications alone, you and junior might enjoy to use them.
I would leave Appoke, Fring and Getjar alone.
The others you have listed are system applications or beneficial to you the end user, your grandson and the overall health and proper performance of eLocity.
I'm glad I as able to help you, and maybe others. Like you I joined this forum looking for assistance for my elocity tablet, after yesterday's call from Bud from eLocity, providing me some information and a e-mail to contact him with, I'm a happy camper. I need another SD Micro adapter to update my firmware, then I'll be a real happy camper and keep my eLocity rather than return it. BTW I work on computers and servers all day, this Android OS and tablets are new too me.
Wow that's a lot to read, digest and answer. I will get back to you tomorrow Super Bowl Sunday with answers.
Updated: I have a client with database-server-hosting issues today, they take priority. I will try and answer your questions within the next 48 hours
