    Default What is the rosie utility?

    I restarted my EVO and then noticed something called the rosie utility. When I clicked on it, it changed my home weather page to Jonesboro, Arkansas and I'm in Minnesota.

    I've Googled this and searched the forums without a satisfactory answer.

    Thanks.

    Sorry... have to say this. I think the "Rosie" utility must be for a Palm.

    Rosie is sense.

    Sense is HTC's skin over stock android, look at the nexus 1 that's stock android.

    It adds alot of functionality and most everyone agrees its the best skin, yet there's alot of people that like stock android.

    Head over to the evo forums.
    Some say the glass is half empty. Some say its half full. I say, "Are you going to drink that?"

    The part you're seeing is meant to be hidden, you're probably just running into a weird bug.

    Ok, so my question is why does it say this:

    This application can access the following on your phone:

    ! your messages - com.android.email.permission.READ_ATTACHMENT
    ! network communication
    etc etc other intrusive sounding access....

    forgive me if thats a stupid question, this isnt my first android, but its my first time seeing ROSIE and it wont let me uninstall

    if you have the rosie utility on you droid... your hacked, look for the phone to come on and off automaticly, or sound turned up and down, apps you never seen before, apps that dont turn off, diler apps and camera apps.. in order to install a rosie app you need softweare to install the rosie app, the rosie utility is just the eletronic mark to control your phone from anywere, go to the network store and have your phones ID number that idenifies that phone changed, cause that was how it was accessed in the firstplace

    SIMONP1965 that does not mean you were hacked! all the Rosie utility is, is a User Interface!

    that is incorrect, the rosie utility is the electronic mark from the Rosie program used to control the device it was placed in. You have to install the Rosie on your computer then you can place the utility in devices to run them remotely . So again if you see "Rosie Utility" running in your services, you've been and are being hacked,

    Where did you get that information? Rosie was the code name for Sense before it's official release. It is still found on some devices as a part of Sense.

    Rosie is a remote access program, its named after Rosie from the jetsons cartoon show, Rosie can control any device from any location , it was originally designed to control house devices such as lighting, sound systems, alarms, ect, anything in your home so you can sit on your couch and control you world. What ? forgot to turn your sprinklers on this morning, no prob, just open your Rosie app an turn it on from work. but somone got the bright idea and used Rosie on a smartphone and hear we are! if you see that utility, do a factory reset and it will be gone,

    and furthermore, that particular Rosie mark must be placed there, it doesn't just show up by its self

    So then you're not talking about this:



    Seriously, I can't find anything on the web (other than this thread) that says the Rosie utility is related to your phone being hacked. SIMONP1965, please post the link where you found this information.

    I thought the rosie utility was spinning date functions that are all through SenseUI. I miss it in my new phone. Samsung epic4gtouch
