Default How do you remove Diner Dash and Telenav

How do you remove these apps? I have root access but I am not sure of the commands I need to enter to remove these. I never plan to use them so I want to get my memory back!

Ok so use ADB, Better Term, or SUFBS to bring up the command prompt. Then to rm those programs use this string.

This is useful Information. I went ahead and removed TwLauncher.apk as well, I don't think that should cause problems, but I'll post here if it does. I'd try removing the cube too, but the phone didn't react too well when I hid it with the Vault application, so removing it is probably a bad idea.

Because there's no way I'm going to use it enough to justify $10/month.

I had a quick question, which is the telenav apk? Do I just keep missing it or is it under a different name? Also, does anyone know if it's safe to simply remove the myfavs.apk?

It seems the the name of the apks are DinerDash2.apk and tn55-android-Houdini-signed.apk.

I tried to uninstall via the Package Manager of Droid Explorer (seen below) however Package Manager crashes on my system when I try the uninstall (Win7 x64).

I removed the files via ADB, and the phone continues to work fine! :-)

In order to removed with ADB you must first be root (Follow persistant Root thread) then follow the instructions on the second post on this thread.



**I am not responsible if you brick your phone. Do the following at your own risk**

Also just wanted to say that before removing you should backup the files (I always backup but forgot for the above... thankfully everything seems to be running okay)

To backup do the following **BEFORE** uninstalling from ADB
su
cd system
cd app
cat NameofApk.apk > /sdcard/NameofAPK.apk
rm NameofAPK.apk

then type "reboot" and restart the phone.

Anyone else remove any other programs? I'm not quite ready to change ROMs yet, but before I removed some other apps, i wanted to see if anyone experimented.

I'm ready to remove native IM (I use Meebo) & Messaging (I use Handcent).


PLUS I see some remnants from DD2 & TN on my apps list, are there other files to delete?

I just found the post that I think you were referring to, but it looks like nobody had any luck. But they were also trying to load up a custom mms app.

Just use root explorer app , copy the name of the mms app as is , rename the new mms app ( that should be on your sdcard ) the same as the old one , delete the old one and then install the new one . Now reboot and the system will think it's the same old mms app , now you can go to the mms settings and disable notifications .,...., Root explorer can also be used to remove (delete) any other app you don't need , BUT , Be very careful what you delete , you may not want it but the phone may need it ..

OK, I deleted the OEM IM, email, and mms apps. The only issue I had, was that I had to turn on the self-check within the Handcent SMS app to show the actual messages. But now I have single notification for SMS (can't confirm MMS since I rarely get them). I thought Handcent allowed custom notification by contact, but maybe it was the OEM version.

DO AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!

I just rooted my Behold II and used Better Term to remove some stock weight. Using the following string I removed stock music player, samsung email (I use gmail only), stock browser (dolphin is awesome), telenav, diner dash and hotspot app.

#su
#
#rm /system/app/nameofapp.apk
#reboot

I also removed the odex if the app had it, which needs to be done seperate from the apk.

MusicPlayer.apk
MusicPlayer.odex

SamsungEmail.apk
SamsungEmail.odds

TouchWizBrowzer.apk
TouchWizBrowzer.odds

tn55-android-Houdini-signed.apk (TeleNav)

DinerDash2.apk

HotSpotApp.apk

Good luck!

Even the great mods over at xda left the default music player and the default browser in their custom roms, cause these are tied in to other activities that the phone uses but its your choice , and its not advised unless you change the xml that ties these apps in to their activities . So please ONLY delete NON_system apps . At this point if the guy above me has any issues like ringtones are slow or not working , then he has to re_flash the odin files to get them back . Some words to the wise....

Good point, on the warning. I have not had any issues with removing either programs. I always hate the stock browsers on any device or computer. I also never used the music player, pandora and flycast for me. Got tired of it opening everytime I plugged in the 3.5mm jack. If I do encounter issuses I will update, but like I said "DO AT YOUR OWN RISK".

I removed Amazon mp3 & tips today, the only issue is a FC if you click it on the cube.

Thats because the amazon mp3 app is tied in with the cube , and because it can't find that app it will FC..... Tips app is just a waste of space dont think it's tied in to anything....

You can also do adb uninstall "name of program"
So, for example, if you want to remove the default mms application, the command would be:
adb uninstall com.android.mms

To be brutally honest I used the methods above first and then did the uninstall, so use at your own risk. Also, if someone wants to pipe in that this is completely wrong I'll edit this post.

I just got the bug fix update and am going thru deleting the new apps and ran into a read only problem. Here is the fix (I kind of adjusted someone else's solution, so feel free to correct my statement):

mount -o rw,remount /system /system

Then you should be able to rm apps.
