Lenovo P780 Kitkat 4.4.2 upgrade: Post problems and changes

2014-09-17, 15:24 PM

1. New security system ( neither can be uninstalled nor disabled) actually speaking it is annoying to me. Now a days it is asking for Money Rs.53 for 30 days.

2. Very bad UI ( had to install NOVA Launcher to change it )

 


Does anyone know how to uninstall Lenovo Security. Please help me i dont want it anymore.:smileymad::manmad:

Hi,

It's asking you to pay for the service?!

Are you running an official firmware?Did you root the device?

You may be talking about norton security and not the native security app?

No it is the native security.

And i don't even want Norton security too.

Who had given the idea of including all these apps in the build old one was
good.

SecureIT is a completely free app.

 

The problem you are describing(virus database upgrade fee) is usually related with improper SU binary installation (rooted device loosing root access>CWM/TWRP re-rooting).That's why I asked about root access.In that case the solution was to uninstall and reinstall the app (ROOT needed).

 

The funny thing is that if you want to remove it you have to root the phone.

Rooting instructions HERE

 

Important:If you remove SecureIT you won't be able to install future OTA updates.Suggest ''freezing'' it (ROOT needed).

Lenovo Security consists of 2 apps, Anti Virus and rest of the features.

 

make sure you are on S223 firmware update.

 

You can now disable AntiVirus, but not the Security app.

 

You gotta stay with the Security app, but atleast we can now disable the Anti Virus!!!
