I have a problem with managing apps in F-Droid.
There are a lot of them which I can’t install because F-Droid App tells me that I have them already - which isn’t the truth.
There’s information that there’s no version with compatible signature, and that I need to uninstall them first to get them from F-Droid. (I get that - since they are signed with different sig - that’s not the problem)
But I cant do it - those apps are greyed out on the F-Droid App list and there’s no uninstall button. And since I have never installed them - they are not listed in system apps list in the first place.
This occurs whether Google Play Store / Services are enabled or not.
The phone is freshly rooted Galaxy Note 5 N9200 HK.
Thanks in advance for every answer.
Which apps are concerned?
Could it be they are pre-installed by the system but hidden from the apps list?
frozenbubble level editor
the knights of aletejo
theia icon theme
like 100-something other starting from letters T,U,V,W,X,Y,Z,
arabic todo list
I think that’s highly unlikely to have all of them preinstalled in vanilla device.
Things like xposed, yalp store, tinc, xserver, wlanscanner, ethereum wallet, wake-on-lan, vespucci, unifiedNlp (no GAPPS), and many others.
Those apps are not listed in system list, and I can’t locate any trace of them in file system.
Did you try clearing F-Droid’s app data in the system settings?
Thanks for the tip paulakreuzer!
I’ve found the solution:
- Clear app data
- Uninstall F-Droid
- Clear app data again
- Install F-Droid
Also the problematic apps didn’t have icons displayed in F-Droid App.
Unfortunately clearing cache and app data did not worked - reinstall is required.
Freshly installed FD app find only apps that I have installed manually.
Case close I pursume.
