Remember the times when your only method of voice communication on distance was a a simple cable telephone? The memories of those times are really vague, and nowadays some people don’t even use these telephones, because we all know, if we need to contact somebody it is more likely they will respond on their mobile telephone! Mobile telephones made it easier for everyone to reach the needed person wherever they would be, if the don’t answer its either they don’t have their telephone near them, they are busy or they simply ignore you.
First generation of mobile telephones had few features and were mostly used for communication. When the second generation of GSM became availble, they also gained the ability to surf the internet through the 2G Internet. It was a big deal for that time. And at the time when third generation of GSM came in, the development of smartphones started. The main difference between a smartphone and an old mobile telephone was multi-tasking. Basically your smartphone can run more applications at the same time, and can switch easily between them. Smartphones gained various multimedia support on a higher level, because their hardware was more advanced. And today you can use you mobile phone not only for communication, but for multimedia means, like watching a high-definition movie, listening to your favorite music in flac format, reading a ebook or playing 3D games.
The most popular operating systems on the market are Android, iOS and Windows Mobile. There are other operating systems but their cut on the market is very low. iOS is a product from Apple Inc. and its strong point is in its compatibility with all Apple products and swiftness of the operating system itself. Windows Mobile is a product from Microsoft Corporations, and is a specially designed operating system for a line of smartphones, mainly Nokia.
But here we’ll talk about Android. Android operating system was bought by Google, after a short period of its development, and after its release steadily gained popularity among various smartphone brands like HTC, Samsung, Sony, Meizu etc. Google has put its effort in developing a stable and rich environment and they have done it. Today, on the latest smartphones you can get the fifth version of Android, that offers a lot of new features compared to the previous “Kit Kat” version. The system itself is a lot more complex then the first ones, it is quite understandable considering the number of smartphones that are using it and the number of application written for it, in different programming languages.
The main way to get any desired application on your smartphone with an Android operating system, is to download it freely or for a fee from Google Play Store. Once download the Play Store always checks updates for it and keeps track of your activity in it. This is quite an interesting feature, because you won’t have to search manually for new versions and the program itself saves your progress in it or can gather data in order to improve it. There are certain vital processes that control the Google Play Market’s function, usually they are stable but sometimes they tend to crash or to corrupt, and afterwards you will feel uncomfortable using your smartphone.
One of the main processes that controls Google Play Market is the Google Service Framework. Google Servers Framework is the essential element that ties all applications with Google Play Market. If this process is deleted or missing from your system all your application won’t receive any updates, some of them won’t start and some will always have to be reset in order to start. For example, your Google Email will receive new mails, but the notifications won’t show up, so you will have to manually refresh your inbox each time. Another minus that can occur that you won’t be able to use Google Play Store properly. Usually you are automatically logged in, but with a Google Service Framework absent or corrupter, you will have to log out and afterwards log in to use it properly.
The problem is quite frustrating indeed. Some developers claim that the absence of this process is explained by the fact that all application form specific tokens to interact with GCM (Google Control Manager), and as a result the Google Servers see your smartphone as factory reseted, but in fact it isn’t and you have a different version of operating system and options put. This leads to huge flaws in the systems interconnection.
Simply reseting your smartphone won’t do the trick if the process is missing, because it is usually stored in the system part of your drive. You have to install a genuine .APK file of Google Service Framework in order for it to reappear again. Once installed you do one factory reset of your smartphone and the problem will be solved. No more crashes or errors from Google Play or your applications!
