How to STOP stock android apps/services from auto starting and ever running in the background?


This don’t work any more

Goto Menu>Settings>Applications>Running services>

Now Press and hold the Application you want to stop. It should then give a message that says something like

“The service will no longer run until started again. this may have undesirable consequences on the application <app name>…….”

This way you free up resources and stop the application auto running

You can also force close apps by choosing Menu>Settings>Applications>Manage Applications

Hope this helps

  1. I’m extremely inspired along with your writing skills as neatly as with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid topic or did you modify it yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent high quality writing, it’s uncommon to look a nice blog like this one these days..

    1. Hi,

      Thanks for you comments. I write this blog by my self when I have some free time.

      Thanks again for your appreciations.

  2. This does work to initially turn them off but they do start up again. Especially ones that I’ve never started in the first place, like Amazon MP3 and Nova. I wish there was a way to delete them as it is really annoying just having unnecessary bloatware on the phone when I don’t need or want them.
