[Root][App]Media Scanner Switch
Media Scanner Switch
As we know there is no other application seems to work on recent Kitkat update. so here made small tool which works on kitkat.
We know our device scans media on every boot, and that makes device slow on booting, also while scanning is running Call recording mod can't save recording. Also it drains considerable amount of battery juice.
This application simply disable/kill media scanning process. Also you can enable it any time (mostly needs after updating media files to device)
Sometimes after enabling it still media scan doesn't starts, just plug in to USB and transfer a media file.
It should work on 4.0 +
It needs Root
Needs to have USB debugging enable (Don't know how? setting-general-about device-build number - tap 7 times on build number and you will find developer option just before about device - enable USB debugging from there)
How to use :
Install attached application
Open from App drawer
It will pop up Two option Enable and Disable. Select according your need and on successful activity, you will find toast notification. (see screenshot)
PS : I know this is very useful tool and no known other app seems to works on kitkat, As all user can't pay online I am making this application FREE. But if you find it useful and able to buy online please consider to purchase from play store.
play store (it have same function but have new UI and showing current status)
PS : Don't use this if you don't know why and when to enable/disable media scanning.
