[Q] Where's my package and why can't I uninstall it? (SecEmail_J.apk)
For a while now I've had my S4 android 4.2.2 AT&T phone. The only trouble is the email client will NOT work with my companies exchange server. My co-workers phone works fine, and he has his S4 via sprint (newer packages).
So today I had a Eureka moment: android = linux, which uses package managers (sometimes I'm a bit slow...). So a bit of googling showed me that "pm list packages | grep "email"" Displays the package for my email client. "pm uninstall com.android.email" ends in "Failure"
So after this I decided to run "logcat | grep "email"" The first entry is "Attempt to delete unknown system package com.android.email"
But below that is a bunch of system stuff like calls E/installd (217): ECS_ECS: * do_get_size pkg [com.android.email]
Then I tried to do it by package location. I found the name and where it was located: pkg: SecEmail_J.apk
and tried "pm install -r SecEmail_J.apk"
So what is going on?
Why can't I uninstall this package? I stopped it from running, before I tried any of this, and I've pretty much exhausted my linux knowledge.
If you need a complete log file or more information, just let me know, thanks!!
