Android :: Way To Completely Remove Unwanted Apps?
Jan 30, 2010
How do I completely remove rather than rename unwanted apps? Specifically, what commands have to be entered into the shell? And where can I find a listing of the apps in rom? I am rooted and have some knowledge of adb and the android sdk. here are just a number of the apps I never will use, so I would prefer to free up memory.
I have a HTC Hero and new to all this android stuff! i have this program i can see in the application managment bit called AddProgramActivity i think its responsibly for putting annoying little ads at the bottom of the screen when certain apps run. I also have an app called IM. If i go into the manage application bit and expand each app there is no option to uninstall or remove! how to i get rid of them?
I am looking for a bit of info and/or a tut on how to remove apps with the rooted 2.1 for the Eris ( BTW thanks to all the dev's for their hard work). I have installed the rooted 2.1 with out a hitch. I have been looking around to find out how to uninstall a few of the apps (amazon, stocks, tweet) and found people that say to use SDK's ADB or terminal. I understand what the terminal is and the SDK that google offers is but not the ADB. I also understand that there is a chance to brick by removing the wrong things. So I don't want to just make a careless mistake.
U mainly wanted to root to remove the unwanted apps preinstalled on my phone because I was tired of running out of space. I rooted successfully via Odin. downloaded root installer and removed the unwanted apps. Then I started playing around with other apps. But now when I try to use any of them I get "app was denied super user permission" and telling me I need to be rooted. I tried factory reset but that didn't work. In fact, I now can't even use app uninstaller to remove those apps.
is there anyway to completely delete things like "gtalk" and "corporate calendar" from the device? SOmethimes when I click on my Running applications, they are being used and I have never once used them. Thanks in advance for the help
I was wondering if there is a way without having to ROOT the phone to remove those unwanted ads in apps that you always see? I know there are programs out there for this job, but all of them require your phone to be rooted.
I rooted my phone and my husbands phone about 2 months ago. We LOVE it.. now I'm having a major blonde (no offense) moment.. I can't figure out how to remove apps we don't want..how to remove apps thru command prompt and nothing I try seems to make it communicate it w/the phone..maybe there's an app I can download instead?
I was good with the leak, but then i experienced a few hardware problems and had to get a replacement eris. Well, now i am rooting this beasty, tryin to overclock it. The guides have been helpful and clear on getting to this point, but now i am stuck of the multiple roms out there, very few of them actually list what's available. I wanted as few as possible of the stock apps (peep, amazon, footprints, all that garbage gone), overclock, 5-7 screens, and for it to do my taxes, change my timing belt, and book flights for me all at once, but can't seem to find out. Right now i've got home, senseui, and nexus launcher loaded up on here, using senseui cause that's what i am used to. Nexus launcher seems to be well a resource hog that this phone cant handle without overclocking.
I am currently running ICS 4.0.4 on my motorola razr and I downloaded the app "power toggles" from google play [URL] ....
The one thing that annoys me the most is that I made the notification icon transparent but the problem is that there is a huge space left when for example receiving messages or downloading apps. I am wondering, is there a way to remove that annoying space? I know in JB there is a option for removing notifications as default but I am currently running ICS...
I read about some other people having the same problem here -> [URL] .....
How do you delete and completely remove the preinstalled FACEBOOK Application from a HTC Hero Android phone? I just got my Sprint HTC Hero Android phone and I noticed that it comes preloaded with FACEBOOK. While I know that most people would consider that great, I don't. Do to my job, I am prohibited from using FACEBOOK or MYSPACE and therefore, would have absolutly no use for the application. Please let me know how I can safely delete it so that I can free up memory on my HTC Hero.
One day I installed a beta firmware for the G2/vision. The beta gave my phone a weird glitch where any apps that I installed would instantly force close afted I restarted the phone, but it would work fine if it was uninstalled and reinstalled. I installed the new firmware and now newly installed apps work. The problem is that apps that were installed while the beta firmware was installed still do not work after I restart my phone, even after I unintall and reinstall the app. There must be something left from the app even after
And everything I mean every rom's contents, busybox, scripts, etc. I once use one GB rom and it can run NFS Most Wanted very smooth, but after playing with scripts/tweaks too much, it turn out that the game lag more than before. So, I want to completely wipe everything and start over. Does the "Full Wipe" (Wipe data/factory reset+Wipe Cache+Wipe Dalvik cache+Format system+data+cache) do the job? Or maybe there is something more?
Several apps on my epic are always on. After I end them using atk if I wait say 10 minutes they start again. Not all are bloatware some are apps I use from time to time but I don't want them to run all the time.

I recently uninstalled Dungeon Keeper so I could start a new game since I messed up with my first one, but when I installed it again my old game showed up. How do I completely remove all saved game data to start fresh?
I have an app that when someone downloads it from the Play Store, recognizes the phone and connects to a server (Internet is needed) so every time I open it I have all my data and my "app activity" shown there. So, here's the thing: I want to sell the phone to a friend of mine, but I don't want (neither does he) to reset to factory because he wants a large amount of the apps I have already installed and it is part of the price.
So, I ask you: Is there a way to completely remove-uninstall an app and ALL of its data so that there is no way for the app to have MY data displayed, and basically the app is "reseted' to factory, so that my friend can use from scratch?
Even when you remove the little back rubber/plastic cover for the USB connection plug, it still stays attached to the phone and dangles. I am thinking of completely removing it from the phone. Can I do so without damaging it? Can I re-attach it if I change my mind later?
I have a rooted Hero, running Fresh 2.3.3 ROM with DarchKernel786. I use LauncherPro and want to delete HTC sense from taking up so much internal memory! Is this possible? Also, i want to remove some stock apps like Peep from my phone as well, but they do not show up under app uninstaller. I've read that root explorer app can accomplish this, but the app was really confusing and I didn't understand. Can someone help me out?
New to Android. I always used a app called Magicall on my WM device. I want to be able to block specific contacts, unknown number or anonymous numbers and also specific contacts for SMS. I can see I have the option to send a contact direct to voicemail but don't have the same facility for unknown/anonymous callers and nothing to block SMS. Any recommendations for an app that works with 2.1? (I'm using a HTC Desire)
