So one option is to try that again, then either get Ti Pro or install Astro.

Otherwise, you need to edit a copy of the ROM zip on your computer and remove the market updater from there.

Or, you could try this:

* set up adb on your computer, if you haven't already (see the ADB and Fastboot FAQ, from the All Things Root Guide sticky post)
* boot into recovery and connect phone to computer
* use the following adb commands

adb shell mount /system
adb shell rm /system/app/MarketUpdater.apk

you can check the file is gone using

adb shell ls /system/app

* I'd probably clear cache and dalvik from recovery before rebooting, just to keep things clean

What that does is use the Android Debug Bridge (adb) to issue some linux terminal commands to remove the apk from the system. Being S-On you can't do that while android is running, but when you are in recovery android is not running. You may have to run this as an administrator.
thanks for that mate, you were probably typing as i posted again ^^^^

does that change things?


EDIT: we seem to be typing at the same time :-)
