I will gladly repeat myself and say again: "Your technical competence is undisputed and is appreciated by me.. And I don’t suppose you’re just “also only and advanced user”. It is safe to assume that you aren’t “also only and advanced user”. But in the matter of removed /e/AppStore “After next OTA it will be back.” I can tell from practical experience - that is not so!
When was the last time you tried it? I have, in the last few minutes for the repeated time - and always the same result: The standard e-apps “e-AppStore” and “e-Weather”, which I uninstalled aren’t restored after an OTA. Not even after multiple OTA updates. Should it perhaps only be device-dependent? I have only tested it several times on one LG G3.
What you said is self-evident and right: “no one knows everything !!!” Only if you post informations, it has a different weight and corresponding influence. Nix für ungut, @harvey186.
