Google has stopped (Dutch: Google is gestopt) on older Anrdoid devices

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/11/12

I got the Dutch message “Google is gestopt” on an older Android device which translates to the below English error message “Google has stopped”.

Below is the solution based on [WayBack] Google is stopped – OnePlus Community

  1. Go to “Settings”
  2. In “Settings” go to “Apps”
  3. In the application list, browse to “Google”
  4. Uninstall all updates (sometimes this is under the hamburger or 3-dot icon)
  5. Confirm
  6. Start the Google Play Store
  7. Update the “Google” application

Android: Island – app freezing, privacy protection, parallel accounts

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/07/23

Requires admin privileges, but can be worth your effort: [WayBack] [APP][5.0+][BETA] Island – app freezing, pri… | Android Development and Hacking

“Island” is a sandbox environment to clone selected apps and isolate them from accessing your personal data outside the sandbox (including call logs, contacts, photos and etc) even if related permissions are granted. Device-bound data is still accessible (SMS, IMEI and etc).
Isolated app can be frozen on demand, with launcher icon vanish and its background behaviors completely blocked.

From Yahoo closing Answers tonight to blocking ads on YouTube

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/05/04

The discussion on Yahoo closing Answers tonight quickly went from alternative text based question/answer sites to long YouTube videos having hardly any content but ads, to blocking these ads: [Wayback] Yahoo sluit Answers-dienst na vijftien jaar en verwijdert inhoud – IT Pro – Nieuws – Tweakers

So here are some links where I can learn a bit of browser plugin and Android development technology as well:

(What I dislike most about ads is that they start at unnatural positions in the stream and cover topics I’m totally not interested in).

Relevant because security often is a nightmare:

 

Both threads are a good read.
