Tab boots now, but old apps still there after fresh Rom install.?
Wow, I must say ...
I am " very disappointed "
that I did not get a reply sooner than now ...
With over 45 views
& no replies.?
Has no-one been in my situation, stuck on the boot screen.?
I do realize not "everyone" knows how to fix things, but still, I was surprised that I got no replies, very surprised!?
Only thru " guessing
" what to do, I chose to try & flash another ROM on to fix it ...
Apart from having initial "memory-card" issues, I successfully copied over a rom of my choice!
I had to take the microSD out of the TF101, into a card reader, to copy over the Rom & Gapps!
With the Rom on the memory card, I pressed the power + down volume, waited for the text to appear, then pressed the up volume!
Once inside my TWRP Recovery, (backup already done) I chose "Wipe" from the choices expecting to wipe "everything! Hmmm...
I installed the Rom of my choice ( KatKiss ), wiped cache, wiped dalvik, pressed reboot & waited ... Success, it's now booting up!
What happens IF
I keep the install the way it is.? - Even tho thru rebooting, it did say "Android is updating... 56 or 121" etc ...
After it all settled down, I noticed that ALL my apps etc, were ALL still there.? - What have I done wrong.? Why are all my apps still there.?
Am I safe to keep this install ... OR ... Do I do a fresh install (which I prefer & was expecting)!! What step did I miss, please tell me, I need to know!
