"Repair" Android System WebView

Every Android smartphone user sees an Android System WebView app update notification as often as an Android security update. And there are reasons for this, but first let's figure out what this thing is and what it does.

WebView

Whatever browser we use, it can be visually divided into the displayed content and the user interface. How to show content when clicking on a link, its markup, links that can be navigated, and so on - this is the care of the browser engine. The interface consists of controls.

Whether the browser is Safari, Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, or Edge, the manufacturer needs to update the local application to change the controls. To change the display (markup) of the content, it is enough to update only the WebView component. Programmers call this component an embeddable browser that a native application can use to display web content, but it sounds too boring and incomprehensible. Part of the browser engine - this sounds much clearer and more logical due to the lack of popular browsers that do not use WebView.

Any decent smartphone manufacturer is bound to offer their own TWS headset with them. So TCL introduced in December on the Russian market not only a flagship smartphone, but also a flagship headset. Let's see what happened ...

Android System WebView

Unlike the classic desktop understanding, in the Android operating system the WebView component is designed as a separate application and, in addition to the standard browser function, is responsible for displaying ads in all applications, including third-party ones. Yes, yes, this is the same “bug” that interrupts the game with inappropriate advertisements, distracts from reading the news, and with each update when surfing the web, brings up more and more links from Google itself.

Yes, some third party apps use their own ad engine. Most often, these include projects with millions of users online every day, as well as many applications from the Middle Kingdom, but most developers are not ready to invest in a separate ad server and use stock from Google. In the latter case, the user sees a targeted advertisement that echoes his browser requests and this induces sadness, a feeling that can be described by the phrase “walled up, demons”.

Android System WebView Issues

As with any Android system application, the main problems occur after the next update. This looks like a complete failure or incorrect start of the Android System WebView, and more specifically, the browser either immediately crashes or starts to twitch, like a grandfather who has gone over tequila at a b-boy party.

Solution

Of the many solutions that can be found on the Internet, only four really work. Standard, the same as for any other applications: go to the smartphone settings, remove all Android System WebView updates. Immediately after that, restart your smartphone and install the updates again.

The second one is more difficult and requires ADB skills, ask a friend if you can't do it yourself. In any case, everything you do, you do at your own peril and risk. Here is a brief procedure:

  1. Remove Android System WebView updates
  2. Download your (default) version of the Android System WebView application from this link and drop it into your ADB folder. The file should be called android-system-webview.apk.
  3. At the command prompt, type:
    adb connect IP-OF-device
    adb remount
    adb push android-system-webview.apk /system
    adb shell pm install -r -d /system/android-system-webview.apk

The third method requires Root access and for this reason is not suitable for everyone. There is nothing to tell here, just remove the Android System WebView system application. Download the latest version of the application from the same link and upload it to the system partition.

The fourth method is known to everyone and does not require technical skills. This is resetting the smartphone to factory settings, with all the ensuing consequences. It should be used only if the first three did not help.

Why so much attention?

The idea to write about the Android System WebView problem arose after seeing the same text being reprinted from publication to building. And if there were no questions about the standard way to solve the problem, then the second one is just a disaster - it was simply not completed to the end in terms of debugging by ADB. All the hypocrisy is revealed when you look at the sources - these are the numerous sites that offer repair of Android smartphones. Lost in the fog of useless information, the unfortunate user soul will eventually take its hard-earned money to dishonest businessmen. How can a normal person tolerate this?

Conclusion

In the end, it is necessary to say something about the main culprit of all these failures of system applications. And there are several of them, but the main one, it seems to me, is Google. Each year, when a new version of Android is announced, the company declares the minimum system requirements for Fashion in Ethiopia< /a>. And, logically, old smartphones that fit into this framework should continue to work properly for many years until they are completely destroyed. Unfortunately, this does not happen, the company does not want to make a grand gesture and remove its system applications after the terms of guaranteed maintenance of a particular version of the OS (although it can technically do this), the amount of advertising and its "severity" are also growing year by year, it is becoming more "more relevant". Alas, citizens still have a lot of smartphones with 0.5 - 1 GB of RAM, with a drive divided into system and user sections. And these smartphones receive exactly the same updates for installed applications as their flagship counterparts. It seems that these are the main reasons for system application updates to fail - a mismatch between the greed of the main advertiser, who has already released 21 Android System WebView updates since the beginning of the year, and the technical equipment capabilities of ordinary users.

Express your opinion, is the game worth the candle? Are Google apps suitable for Android smartphones? And what do you think of the useless "repair" manuals that are spread like dirt in RuNet?
