    Package Access Helper App - Eating CPU

    I have Package Access Helper 4.0.4-13 on my Bionic and after dealing with some lagginess, I installed Watchdog. Watchdog reports it is using 70% of my CPU. I am not sure what this inrernal app is or why its suddenly killing my memory.

    I am rooted and did install an older version of ICS so I can back out and get the official update from Verizon whenever it may actually happen. THough the loker it takes the more I am apt to find a really good version here and install.

    I am running system version 6.7.232.XT875.Version.en.us
    Android version 4.0.4
    Basebad Version CDMA_N_05.13.01R LTEDC_U_09.14.00
    Webtop Version wt-3.0.0
    Kernel Version 3.0.8.g44ffd6a

    Any thoughts or advice would be really helpful. I love my Bionic, but its lagging is killing me.

    Thanks.

    I must have missed it. Oh, well. I bit the bullet and jumped to a Jelly Bean ROM and am loving it so far.

    Thanks for the heads up though.

    Hi. I'm posting here for the benefit of those people searching this problem in the future.

    Last night I found a solution for my particular version of the "Package Access Helper" problem: I unfroze all the apps I had ever frozen.

    Package Access Helper now behaves properly.

    If I had to guess, I'd guess that it was trying to talk to or do something with one of those frozen apps, it was unexpectedly getting an error (due to the other being frozen), the original developer at Google did not allow for the possibility of an error on the request (=bad= engineer, or time-rushed), and it was going into a loop over the difficulty.

    A couple other apps also have shown the same cpu-saturating behaviour over the last couple months. Enough so that I was considering hopping to an iPhone - oh horrors! We know that Apple doesn't write particularly clueful software either... nice UI's though.

    Unfortunately, I don't have a record or memory of which those apps were.
