    Uninstalling the apps on SD Card before doing hard reset in android phone?

    I would like to do hard reset on my android device. I would like to know whether it is good to uninstall the apps present on the SD Card before doing hard reset. Do I have any benefit in doing it?

    There is a no meaning of uninstalling the application present in your SD card.When you do hard reset it just removes all the file installed in your device.

    No need to uninstall those Apps which are in SD card.When you Hard Reset your phone it will delete those apps which are installed in your phone memory with this it will also delete your phone book,message etc.If you take out the SD card,your all the apps which are installed in SD card will be safe.But even though you want to uninstall then choice is your's.You can use your phone to uninstall those apps or more faster service use computer to uninstall.

    Hard reset or simply RESET means removing all the settings and apps installed in phone. There is nothing to do with SD Card, you will get no benefit whether you formatt your sd card or not. While if you don't format your sd card your data and cache of some application will be saved and could be use for future use.

    FRIEND,

    There is no need to uninstall the applications which are installed in your android phone once you have done
    HARD RESET which means that you are reseting all the settings and removing all the Applications which are
    installed in the phone.

    So friend if you are going for HARD RESET then you must first save your data which is important and then
    do the HARD RESET which will delete every data on your SD card.

    GOOD LUCK.

    Re: Uninstalling the apps on SD Card before doing hard reset in android phone?

    Hi,

    SD Card memory is independent of Android's internal memory. So, if you do hard reset on your android devide, it will not affect the SD Card, its contents and the application installed in it.
    If you want to uninstall the apps on SD card, uninstall manually. Format your SD card only after taking necessary data like files, photos,etc. Do from the available options based on your need. All the best!!

    It is not necessary to uninstall apps present on the SD card before doing a Hard reset.

    But, if you still want to uninstall apps,

    Go to Settings --> Applications --> Manage applications --> All Tab --> Select the APP --> hit Uninstall.

    You can also use--- Easy Uninstaller---> link.

    Its totally different while hard reset


    Hard reset is especially for your handset...that does not affect your external memory
    If your applications are saved on SDcard then you can have a scan of it and it will not required any uninstallation of files.
    You just required to have any back up application which can regain your important data after uninstalling

    Re: Uninstalling the apps on SD Card before doing hard reset in android phone?

    According to me ,

    You are not required to uninstall applications from SD card. But if there are certain applications which are unwanted those you can uninstall. Also if you don’t want to format your SD card, you can remove from the slot while performing Hard Reset.


    Steps to uninstall Applications
    1. Go to Home Screen
    2. Go to Settings
    3. Tap on “Applications”
    4. Tap on “Manage Applications”
    5. Select the desire app to be uninstalled
    6. Tap on “Uninstall”
    7. Done !!

    Steps to Hard Reset
    1. Go to Home Screen
    2. Go to Settings
    3. Tap on “Phone”
    4. Tap on “Factory Reset”
    5. Select “Reset All Data”
    6. Done !!

    Re: Uninstalling the apps on SD Card before doing hard reset in android phone?

    Hey

    For some games and apps you need to download some addition mb of data, which is saved in your sd card. Copy those files and save them so that you can use them after the hard reset is over. You dont have to download those extra files again.

    Other than that i dont think it will be of any use . you have to install all the games and apps again.

    Thanks

    Hello friend,


    I will help you to solve your problem don't worry just do listen to my words.

    There is no need to delete the apps present in memory card you are not going to be benefited by uninstalling the apps present on the memory card.

    If you do hard reset of your phone all your apps get deleted which ever are located on the phone and if any errors in phone will get back to normal and then if there are any errors with your phone previously they get back to normal.

    It's better you unmount the SD card and remove from the device while reset.

    All the best.................

    But before hard reset,backup your files and Unmount the SD card

    Re: Uninstalling the apps on SD Card before doing hard reset in android phone?

    Dear Friend...

    If you are going for hard reset then there is no point to uninstall the previous apps because hard reset means to format the whole memory card.
    But if you don't wish to hard reset, then you can delete some of the apps which are not useful in your device.
    Otherwise move all these files, apps and necessary data in your android device phone memory.

    Thank You..

    Hai friend,

    I have the solution for your problem,don't worry.

    1.According to my view it is unnecessary to delete the apps and contents in memory card before doing the hard reset of your phone.
    2.While doing hard reset of your phone all the apps and other contents such as the messages, contacts,etc,..... whatever are stored in your phone memory gets deleted.

    3.It doesn't even touch your memory card ,I mean it doesn't delete any of the contents of your memory card.It is not at all necessary to delete all the contents of SD card before hard resetting your phone.

    Wish you good luck .................

    Re: Uninstalling the apps on SD Card before doing hard reset in android phone?

    Hi friend,

    You can uninstall the apps from SD card before doing the hard reset.

    After hard reset you will lose all applications from your deviceSo,it is unncessary to uninstall.So,do the hard reset directly.

    But any how here i mentioned the steps to uninstall.

    ---> Go to the home screen frist.

    ---> Select the application which you want to uninstall from device.

    ---> Go to the options.

    ---> PRess either uninstall option or delete option.

    ---> Wait until the uninstall process.

    Once check app is uninstalled or not.

    Thank you............

    There is no need to Uninstall Apps on SD Card, if you have planned to do Hard Reset in SD Card.

    Hard Reset means simply removing all settings, files, apps, phonebook stored in the Android Smart phone.

    So, if you are doing Hard Reset in SD Card, then Uninstalling of Apps makes no sense.

    To hard reset your device follow these steps
    • Go to the home screen
    • Then choose the Settings icon
    • Then choose the privacy
    • Now choose the Factory reset
    • Now select the option wipe all the data

    Re: Uninstalling the apps on SD Card before doing hard reset in android phone?

    hey friend

    I would like to tell you that you dont need to uninstall the apps before going for a hard reset.

    The reason for this is that while you do hard reset of your phone the phone's data will be wiped off but your SD card contents or data will not be touched by the hard reset process..

    The only thing hard reset does is that it clears off all the data from the phone's internal memory to make the phone in factory mode..

    Thanks

    Re: Uninstalling the apps on SD Card before doing hard reset in android phone?

    Keeping your memory card inside the phone and performing the hardware reset will format both internal and external memory. If you don't want the apps in the memory card, then uninstall it before performing the reset. Hardware reset will also neglect the android update and certain applications won't support after the reset. So again you would perform the updates.....
