1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Greetings,

    Hopefully this is a simple question, after a complete factory reset of my phone, how do I stop the Android Market from automatically re-downloading ALL my apps? I would rather re-install things at my own pace.

    Thanks!

    either do not sign into your google account right away, or you can cancel them as they are downloading. another option would be settings>privacy and uncheck automatic restore

    I've tried disabling auto restore, but a few of the apps still restore, it got rid of about nine apps but a few still try to download everytime. Sucks cause their stupid icon packs that I don't use anymore either. Having to cancel the downloads one at a time is a hasle. Wish I never chose that backup option cause it just doesn't end. We should be able to have a choice in this matter as well. Hopefully google is well aware of this problem cause I find this thread on a lot of other forums too.
