Hi there,

after I had some big problems to restore a twrp backup I want to now what this app makes and why this app
is also there after a full wipe of my device.

the twrp restore error
Code:
  ==> extracting: //data/app/com.android.vending-1/ (mode 40777, directory)
tar_extract_file(): failed to extract //data/app/com.android.vending-1/ !!!

If I make a full wipe in twrp this files are on my data partition:

As you see even as root I can't delete this. Can anyone explain me what this is for?

TIA Micha

Hi there, after I had some big problems to restore a twrp backup I want to now that this app makes and why this app is also there afer a full wipe of my device...
I don't have this device but, I had noticed that your device is an amami (Xperia Z1 Compact).

So your best bet is to post this question within one of the following threads that may hopefully be helpful to you.
