Block download of google apps updates
Hello, I have an "old" Android device (less than two years old) with Android version 2.2.1. And an internal memory of 128MB.
My problem is that I don't have enough space in my internal memory for the applications that I use most often, so I had to remove the updates of preinstalled google applications like Google Search, Google Street View, Google Play, Google Play Services,... etc to make room for the applications that I really need.
These updates are anyway automatically downloaded (without asking for my permission) any time it wants (ripping off my mobile data plan). So I find myself having to uninstall them several times a week which is starting to go into my nerves.
I have been suggested to save the applications in the SD card instead of the internal memory, I also tried that with a software called Apps2SD, but there are certain applications that cannot be saved in the SD card (the google apps updates and some of my core apps).
I have also been suggested to make some kind of technical tweak to create a partition in the SD card to work as internal memory and so cheat the system and have a much bigger internal memory. I'm not a technical user and I'm obsessed with security, and this solutions seems to involve technical knwoledge, downloading dubious files from internet forums in the SD card and, in my case, a lots of time and patience.
Help! Could anybody help me to find a solution to my problem, or at least give me some words of sympathy?
