    How to remove this SHIT of myTaxi – Passenger Taxi App on Samsung Galaxy S3

    This application got installed without my knowledge by a Samsung update as a System App that CANNOT BE UN INSTALLED!

    First before I forgot: Go to hell Samsung andIntelligent Apps GmbH

    If either of you continue in that direction, installing software without my prior permission, the next update to my Samsung Galaxy S3 will be CyanogenMod 10

    Back to the removal of MyTaxi,&160; Samsung did hide taxi.android.client_v2.5.1.apk under the name /system/app/samsung_ch.apk

    To remove it

    su (enter)
    mount -o rw,remount /system (enter)
    rm -r /system/app/samsung_ch.apk (enter)
  • CedThumbnails has been updated to version 2.5.9 and contains 4 new features and correct some bug for  Joomla 2.5. For existing users the update will display in the Extensions Managerunder Updates. If you do not have this currently installed, you can click the link below and install like you are use to via the Extensions Manager.

    NEW: The function that detect images in your articles is now clever and now support better fallbacks. It now support Joomla articles metadata (intro image and full article image). With the first option selected the system will always find at least one image to render as thumbnail. Priority is from left to right.

    • search in intro text -> use intro image -> in full text -> use full article image (NEW) it’s the default,
    • search in intro text only,
    • search in intro text -> use intro image (NEW),
    • search in full text only,
    • search in full text -> use full article image (NEW),
    • search in intro text -> in full text,
    • search in full text -> in intro text,

    If no images are found, despite going through intro text, full text, intro image and full article image, the system will fallback to a default image that can be set up per modules/plugins.

    NEW: Support for alternate images text and caption.

    NEWSupport for new resizing method:

    • inside: image fits the given dimensions from the inside, aspect ratio will be kept.
    • outside: image will be at least as big as X x Y, aspect ratio will be kept.
    • fill: image will be stretched as necessary, aspect ratio may not be kept. it’s the default resizing method.

    NEW: Support for scaling method, this determines when to scale an image:

    • any: resize regardless of the image size. it’s the default scaling method.
    • up: resize if image is smaller than the new dimensions.
    • down: resize if image is larger than the new dimensions.

    On a side note the code has been improved, no static methods, better decoupling, but that’s another story that interest only developers. Anyway adding new features will be easier!

  • Preinstalled applications are in /system/app folder, these are the one that can not be removed without root access. User installed applications are in /data/appbut also can be seen nor downloaded without a root access.
