Default Permanently detach apps from Google Play Store?

Hello all!

Is there any way to PERMANENTLY detach an installed app (that you wish to keep installed) from the Google Play store in order to prevent it from updating or checking for updates? Titanium Backup provides a detach option but for some reason it isn't permanent (lasts hours and/or next reboot).

Thank you!

Get the apk from /data/app and make a copy and put it on /sdcard/. Uninstall from the play store and then install from the apk. Make sure you have unknown sources checked. Then it won't update from the play store because it'll be installed by something other than the play store. I hope this helps.

Unfortunately, this didn't work for me , as I keep getting prompted to update the app.

Does it matter that it's a Google app like maps or music?

If you have titanium backup, you should be able to detach it from the market...

As noted in the OP, the effects are only temporary.

I have found the way to so this... At long last I have found a way.


In the play store press menu / my apps / scroll over to the right to view all previously downloaded apps. There is a x on th left of all of them.

This removes them from the list.

I have looked for this for years, only to notice it this afternoon.

That just deletes the apps from your previously installed list, it doesnt permanently detach them from the Play store.

AFAIK nothing really works anymore. I have tried myself and can get anything to permanently detach them. The only thing I can think of is to decompile them and take out anything that has to do with the Play store and then recompile them.

Ahh I thought you wanted to get it off the list of previously installed apps. I see what you mean now. You want to install it without plays tore showing it's installed.
