I bought a used Note4 & since receiving it, there's this "Smart Peel remote"
app in it which I've uninstalled it (via PlayStore) : however, the next day,
this app will pop up & when I go to PlayStore, could see that it's installed.

Each time after clicking "Uninstall" for this app in PlayStore, the "Uninstall"
button will turn to "Update" button.

What must I do so that this app doesn't come back (disruptive pop-ups)
again?

I want to turn OFF all Google ads coming to my Android phone. There are videos available that tell how do do this, but the videos assume far too much knowledge on my part. I have NO idea how to get to whatever a "campaign" page is. Can anyone tell me, step by step how to best try to eliminate these cellphone ads? My phone is a new Samsung S9 Plus. Kindly be specific and very descriptive with the steps you suggest for me.

My Samsung S7 (T-Mobile) won't boot up. I've been trying all the recommendations here https://thedroidguy.com/2018/05/fix-samsung-galaxy-s7-wont-boot-android-7-nougat-update-troubleshooting-guide-1069678 but can't get anything to work. It was working perfectly fine and at 60% battery, I put it back in my pocket and took it back out and it was just a black screen.

I have tried two different chargers and let it charge for at least one hour. When I try to recovery boot by holding down the Home key and Volume Up at the same time I see the blue "Recovery booting" text but then it still won't boot.

I'm on chat with T-Mobile trying to figure it out but nothing insightful yet. Has anyone else run into this or know how to get this darn thing to turn on?

This phone for a friend in Asia.

Some other persons have given their opinion that such a cheap phone will have an ancient version of Android. Throw it in the trash can or spend more.

Opinions on this phone?

My device: Samsung Galaxy Tab A SM-T580 (10.1 inch tablet)

Version: Android 7.0
Kernel Version: Fri Dec 8, 2017

I am trying to root and load TWRP.

Pre-requisite: Installed Windows Samsung Driver to Windows 7, the tablet is recognized when plugged in
as a USB device.


On Android device, Samsung Galaxy Tab A SM-T580:

1. ->Settings ->About Tablet ->Build Number (keep pressing build number)

2. "Developer Mode Has Already Been Turned On" message pops up

3. ->Developer Options, OEM Unlock is turned ON

4.  Downloaded files:

            Odin3_v3.12.7.zip
            Magisk-v15.3.zip
            twrp-3.1.1-0-gtaxlwifi.img.tar
            twrp-3.2.1-0-gtaxlwifi.img.tar
            no-verity-opt-encrypt-5.1.zip  

Note: I tried both versions of TWRP, neither worked.


5. Turned off tablet. Unplugged USB. Held down Volume Down, Home and Power.
This took me to a Warning page. Has an option to Continue with Volume Up pressed, or to
restart phone with Volume Down pressed.

6. Volume Up took me to Download page: being able to flash files from the computer to the tablet.
USB is connected at this point, I connected it AFTER I got to the download page. Should I connect BEFORE
going to the download page?

7. On the computer: Open up Odin (Odin3 v3.12.7.exe)

8. Press the AP button and check the checkbox next to AP button.

9. Choose file: twrp-3.1.1-0-gtaxlwifi.img.tar or twrp-3.2.1-0-gtaxlwifi.img.tar from the Windows dialog box in Odin and press Start.

10. Computer …
