Android as we know it is based on hundreds of small services that run in the background and keep the operating system working as it should. While they’re usually rather quiet, sometimes these services can act up and cause problems like too much battery usage.
In this article, we’re talking about Org.CodeAurora.IMS, what it is, what it does, and how you can fix high battery usage caused by this service.
The Org.CodeAurora.IMS package is a mod for the Google camera which allows non-Pixel users to use Google’s proprietary camera app on their phones. It works just like any other third-party camera app, except you have to sideload the APK as it won’t be available for download on the Play Store.
Of course, downloading a third-party APK file will come at several security risks depending on where you actually get the file from and whether or not it asks for any intrusive permissions on your phone, which considering it’s a camera app, it most likely will.
The legitimate mod APK however, isn’t harmful. It also doesn’t cause any uncalled-for issues when using the app. That said, several users have reported excessive battery drain, which a malicious app version can very well cause.
How to fix Org.CodeAurora.IMS battery drainage issues?
Here are four solutions you can try to fix your battery issues.
Restart your phone
Restarting your phone can help fix many seemingly random issues you might be experiencing with your device, regardless of the operating system or platform.
Clear the app’s cache
Corrupt cache files are also responsible for a lot of issues. Try clearing the app’s cache to see if that solves your problem.
- Head over to the settings and tap on Apps & notifications.
- Tap on View all apps.
- Find the package in the list and tap it to proceed.
- Tap on Storage & cache.
- Tap the Clear cache and Clear data buttons to clear the cache and any other stored data.
Try opening the app again to see if it works fine now.
This might sound drastic, but as a last resort, you can try factory resetting your phone to resolve the issue.
- Head over to your phone’s settings and tap on System.
- Tap on Advanced.
- Tap on Reset options.
- Tap Erase all data (factory reset)
- Tap the final confirmation and wait for your device to reboot.
This should help fix any problems with the package.
Delete the app
Finally, if nothing else works, deleting the app is your best bet, especially considering the problems might very well be caused by a malicious package anyway.
