How do you delete stock apps? I have the HTC music player and would like to delete the stock music player.

You don't (can't) delete stock apps. You can install a different music player and configure that as default.

Yes, I think if you are rooted you can delete stock apps. Any one else.

You can delete them ..IF you can figure out how to set yourself as Owner of the files ,,,

I have not been able to do that ... even to write new sound files to the internal phone memory ... Even with SU privledges but I am not that knowlegeable of linux

I got this from another forum I am a member of but I don't have adb on my computer.

Uh, each argument should be separated by a single space; adding another space isn't going to help or hurt matters.

Additionally, .apks are not directories so the -r (recursive) flag is unnecessary.

su
mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblk3 /system
rm /system/app/Music*

done and done. I'd remember that remount command by heart or save it to a .sh file and chmod it with run permissions

Default remove stock apps

Hi,

i'm trying ro remove stock apps for quite a few days, and i'm getting desperate!

I have everything... titatium, terminal, root explorer, etc etc

with terminal I also receive "directory not empty", but with root explorer I can delete the apk's from /system/app ... I confirm after that they are not there, bus as soon as I reboot the phone they come back.

what can I do ?

I have HTC desire with stock android, rooted .. and also a couple of programs I instaled I don't really knwo what they do.. like rom manager, clockword recovery, etc

plz help!

I had the exact same problem as you until I installed the S-OFF (security off, i.e "full root")
You can find a tutorial on how to do it at XDA

I created a thread on this same issue but I was able to come up with the answer.
Here it is

you need to remount the rootfs with rw, like this:

mount -o rw,remount rootfs /

then

you can

# pm uninstall com.amazon.mp3
pm uninstall com.amazon.mp3
Success
