    OS & Running Apps

    I have 2 questions:

    1. How to I locate and install 2.1 operating system?

    2. How do I find what applications are running, and how do I stop them from running?

    1. you can install once it's sent to you or you can manually install. you can find it on this forum (sorry can't find the link)

    2. you can download Advanced Task Killer, this allows you to see what apps are running and lets you pick which one to "kill"

    1. anyone know where to find it?

    2. I have already installed Apollo ATK. I guess I don't understand how to find what apps are running and how much battery life they are using up.

    I've been there. No option to stop them, just clear memory or data space.

    Which app are you trying to stop? When I press the application under running services it asks me if I'm sure I want to stop the app and then I either hit ok or cancel.

    Not any in particular. I'm just trying to find them, and have a better understanding of what to do with them.

    1. You can go to How to manually update your Droid to Android 2.1 | Android Central for links and information. Otherwise you wait until the OTA comes to you. That should be soon.

    2. If you're trying to see what apps are using your battery, go to Settings>About Phone>Battery Usage.
