    Just curious if anyone has had random downloads of commercials happen on their PlayBooks... Not sure if an app allowed permissions for this recently, and if so how to disable/delete.

    Attached are what populates. Always 15-30 second commercials, never the same ones.

    Someone else complained about this in the last week or two. I don't know if an Android sideloaded app might cause it or if some other app is at fault.

    I think it's an app permission. Deleted old folders from sideloaded apps that failed to work - going to try and track it during the day tomorrow since it seems that's when they're popping in. Can't find them in the folder directories using Ghost Commander though, which is odd...

    Try looking in /accounts/1000/shared/misc/android/Video/. If it's not there, you can do a search using Ghost. You might have to enable search in Ghost. To do so, swipe from the top, then choose application,, then settings, then Toolbar Settings, then Customize the toolbar. Here, check next to "Search".

    I think I may have figured it out. My Android-port of Pandora is the ad-playing one and it occasionally filters video commercials as well as the audio commercials, so I think it's caching the videos on the PB memory for easier playback. Will delete Pandora and re-install to see if it actually asked for File Permissions.
