Default For those who need help disabling/removing apps (including 2.2) here is a list.

Ok guys thought this would help some. The list below is everything I have safely disabled/removed. Anything that says (2.2) is something that has been added with froyo obviously.

Now for a few heads up...

1) Do a Nandroid Backup first.

2) You can only remove Calendar Provider if you don't sync your google account, otherwise you will get an error message.

3) You can safely remove the FriendStreamWidget but cant remove the FriendStream app if you still want to sync Facebook for contacts and such. [Edit] This may have changed in 2.2 where you can remove the FriendStream app and keep contacs syncing without the constant sync problems but I am still testing.

4) The list below is what I have safely remove and the phone runs 100% fine. There are a few apps not included like Flashlight and MyVerison because those are apps I wanted to keep that I use.

5) I suggest just moving files, it's really the same thing as removing them but incase you ever need them again you can quickly get them back. This is just my advice.

6) After deleting/removing certain widgets you may still see a trace of them under widgets in Sense. To remove that trace completly you have to go into manage applications and clear data under HTC Sense. But doing so will also erase any other Sense settings you had.

7) This is kinda an important one. Don't delete the HTC Clock Widget. If and when you do a factory reset/wipe or clear data of HTC Sense as I listed in step #6, HTC Sense will have to reload and will not be able to do so if it can not place the Clock Widget on the main screen. Edit 9/1/2010: Since downloading the final 2.2 rom (deodexed) I was able to remove this widget now without any problems. The command to do so if interested is: mv /system/app/HtcClockWidget.apk /system/app.disabled/


To Start:


1) In Clockwork Recovery under partitions mount /system

2) Open up CMD on your computer and type:

cd\
cd sdk
cd tools
adb shell

(Make Disabled Directory) mkdir /system/app.disabled
(Disable an app) mv /system/app/APPNAME.apk /system/app.disabled/
(Enable an app) mv /system/app.disabled/APPNAME.apk /system/app/
(Remove an app) /system/bin/rm /system/app/APPNAME.apk

Not really sure which app did it but moving one of these put my phone into a boot loop and I had to do a nandroid restore.

You did them all?

If you removed anything that integrates with sync you have to make sure you are are not syncing anything at the time.

For example I shut off google syncing before removing the google calenders.

But I have everything on the list above removed (besides Calendar Provider) and all is fine here so not sure what went wrong on your end.

Also you have to make sure you don't have any accounts active that you are removing. I never use HTC Mail (I never set up an account with it) but if you did and removed it before clearing all data lets say you may run into trouble.

I didn't do them all, no, just the ones I wanted removed, and the only account I had on was my gmail account, no facebook sync or htc mail or anything like that. Not really sure what caused it, but a nandroid restore fixed it fine. Just thought it was odd, that's all.

I definitely didn't touch any of the calendars either so yeah. Just a warning to other users I guess, make sure you do a backup before attempting to remove anything

I should also add that I do appreciate this list. My phone is running very lean now with LP and I've removed just about everything that likes to start up in the backround that I have no use for, but I've still kept things I use, like the HTC music application which I prefer because of the lock screen widget, etc. Thanks again.

No problem man. And if you want to have another go at removing anything else maybe do a few at a time so if there is ever a problem you can always isolate it.

Also, correct me if I'm mistaken, but to completely undo this you could do this:

mv /system/app.disabled/CDROM.ISO /system/etc/ (why you'd want to restore this is beyond me but placing it in system/app with the wildcard might cause problems, not going to test myself)

mv /system/app.disabled/com.cequint.platform* /system/framework/

mv /system/app.disabled/* /system/app/

I think these three are pretty straight forward.

mv /system/app/Facebook.apk /system/app.disabled/
mv /system/app/FriendStream.apk /system/app.disabled/
mv /system/app/teeter.apk /system/app.disabled/

Also copy and paste each line and add .odex in place of .apk for each one if needed.


Also for anyone that wants to remove an app not listed here to find out the name you can use a file manager system like Astro or Root Explorer and search under: / (not /sdcard) for the .apk

And a full list should come up.

What about that clock app? Sense isn't running but that always pops up and I noticed that the widget for it demands almost every permission Android has to offer.

Well you could try to disable it and if something doesn't work just put it back on.

But by getting rid of the clock app you wont be able to use the internal alarm clock, and the clock app might work with other things...Bottom line is I would leave it alone.

First off I will admit that I am not the most tech savoy person, but this seems pretty easy and I am having problems. I am trying to remove the bloatware, but when I mount the system in clockworkmod and type cd\sdk\tools or cd\sdk or cd sdk or anything for that matter I get "the system cannot find the path specified." If someone could give some help that would be great. Additionally, is there anything more you need to have mounted/unmounted in clockworkmod to get this to work. Also do you need your SD card in the phone.

Do you have the Android SDK installed on your computer? cd\sdk\tools assumes that you do, and that it's located in c:\sdk. You may not have it installed or it may be installed in another location.

/system is the only partition that needs to be mounted in clockworkmod.

Where is the exact spot to place the sdk in the c drive, I placed it in the c dive. The exact location would be great.

This is a great write-up for newbs like myself. One thing I would put out there is that the App names are CASE SENSITIVE. I couldn't figure out why I kept getting a message that the file can't be renamed.

Just wanted to bump this for people who want to customize todays new leak themselves.

You can also easily move or remove apps (if you have S-OFF) in Root Explorer.

Oh and just one more heads up if you want to watch HULU disable the flash player that comes installed in the leak:

mv /system/app/install_flash_player.apk /system/app.disabled/

And install the fixed flash player that works with Hulu in this thread: (Also follow the rest of the instructions to complete the operation)

Hulu on 2.2 de-odexed roms

You need a space after cd, as it's the command: cd \sdk\tools\

Mount the /system partition, and an SD card isn't required.

It is also important to make sure the "/" is at the end of the command. I did appear to lose 3 odex files relating to Amazon, CityID and one other. How important are those files if I ever put them back? I am guessing I never will, but the odex files do not show up when I list the directory.

A quick note to those who haven't done this yet - it really does speed up your phone to get rid of this crap. And while you're at it, load a custom hosts file to /system/etc/ (using an adb push) and get rid of ads! It's a blessing.

I just rooted my phone and it's now set to S-OFF.

Now I am reading about how to remove all the bloatware and getting all the commands and so on. But in my reading, it seems that Root Explorer will remove them for me? Without all the commands?? Is this true?

I also read somewhere (under one of the Samsung phone forums) that Titanium also has a built in function to delete and/or move apps. True?

If that is the case, then I am going to stop researching all these stupid commands! I hate playing in cmd, it scares me

You can move things with root explorer but you still have to do it manually. It is just a graphically based file manager.

Someone may possibly correct me on this but I think Titanium just moves the apps to the sdcard but they are still installed and function...and I don't think this works with the phones pre-installed-locked-in apps. Titanium can uninstall apps but again, not the locked ones.

This is very helpful, thanks! I rooted my phone yesterday and followed these instructions, which worked very well. However, there is one thing that is puzzling me, and that is the Amazon MP3 app. I moved the amazonmp3.apk file as directed (for whatever reason, there was no amazonmp3.odex file on my phone). However, Amazon MP3 still shows up in my list of apps, and is still running when I start up my phone - I can even run it by clicking on it, which makes no sense, as I've verified that the amazonmp3.apk file does not exist in /system/app/! Is it possible that it is cached somewhere, or are there additional files that I need to remove?

edit: NM, I seem to have figured it out... I looked up Amazon MP3 in Marketplace, and it told me it was still installed. I clicked on "Uninstall Updates" and now, although the icon still shows up in my program list, it tells me that the program doesn't exist when I click on it.

Why would you remove skype or calendars?

Can't you use skype wifi to talk with friends in different countries for free?

Because I don't have any other friends in any other Countries to talk to and I removed Calenders because I just don't want/use one. I don't have such a busy schedule that I can't easily remember what I have to do in my head.

Again the items listed in this thread are only what I removed, no one has to remove all of these.

I realize that I am just sparking conversation. It seems like a useful tool I am trying to figure out if there is something negative to Skype that I don't know about.

Negative - it runs constantly in the background, and killing the task doesn't make it go away That's negative in my book.

Did you go to mount/unmount partitions in clockwork and change it before running these commands? Just have to mount the first one under "system" and it should work.

Yeah I did that first and it said it was successful. Maybe I'll go back and try it again just in case.

Does anyone have the commands for the "News and Weather" app?

I believe the "NewsReader" is for the "News" app..

Also copy and paste each line and add .odex in place of .apk for each one if needed.


Also for anyone that wants to remove an app not listed here to find out the name you can use a file manager system like Astro or Root Explorer and search under: / (not /sdcard) for the .apk

And a full list should come up.
thanks for the help!!!

also, i tried looking for 3g mobile hotspot using root explorer but i wasnt able to find it. anyone have the name for it??? thanks in advance!!

This takes care of Google's RSS reader for news and weather. There's no corresponding odex file to worry about here.

That's correct, for HTC's version of a RSS reader for news.

mv /system/app/NewsReader.apk /system/app.disabled/
mv /system/app/NewsReader.odex /system/app.disabled/

Also, don't forget to take care of the corresponding NewsReader widget files:

mv /system/app/com.htc.NewsReaderWidget.apk /system/app.disabled/
mv /system/app/com.htc.NewsReaderWidget.odex /system/app.disabled/

So far I don't really like how the moving went after typing in the [OPs] commands verbatim.

When I go to "Add widget" there are about 3 widgets that either say "false" or "##ff000000" so the widgets were not properly removed. The logo is just an x.

When I click on it, it says, "sorry this process has stopped unexpectedly."

Oh well - not a big deal just a minor annoyance.

They are properly removed but you didn't read the entire original post for a solution to your problem.

Scroll back up and read tip #6 for a way to get rid of the left over trace of widgets.

Oh what a beatiful thing it is to have my Inc cruft/bloatware free. It's more than worth the warranty these phones carry.

It might be listed above, but I didn't know for sure:

I'd like to disable Voice Actions, My Verizon and Google Search. Which would those be? Thanks!

Default Great tutorial, but where do I strat?

Thanks for a great tutorial, but I am still at square one .... how do you BEGIN this process? On the phone? On my PC? Sorry, just a real novice here.

Now for a few heads up...

1) Do a Nandroid Backup first.

2) You can only remove Calendar Provider if you don't sync your google account, otherwise you will get an error message.

3) You can safely remove the FriendStreamWidget but cant remove the FriendStream app if you still want to sync Facebook for contacts and such. [Edit] This may have changed in 2.2 where you can remove the FriendStream app and keep contacs syncing without the constant sync problems but I am still testing.

4) The list below is what I have safely remove and the phone runs 100% fine. There are a few apps not included like Flashlight and MyVerison because those are apps I wanted to keep that I use.

5) I suggest just moving files, it's really the same thing as removing them but incase you ever need them again you can quickly get them back. This is just my advice.

6) After deleting/removing certain widgets you may still see a trace of them under widgets in Sense. To remove that trace completly you have to go into manage applications and clear data under HTC Sense. But doing so will also erase any other Sense settings you had.

7) This is kinda an important one. Don't delete the HTC Clock Widget. If and when you do a factory reset/wipe or clear data of HTC Sense as I listed in step #6, HTC Sense will have to reload and will not be able to do so if it can not place the Clock Widget on the main screen. Edit 9/1/2010: Since downloading the final 2.2 rom (deodexed) I was able to remove this widget now without any problems. The command to do so if interested is: mv /system/app/HtcClockWidget.apk /system/app.disabled/


To Start:


1) In Clockwork Recovery under partitions mount /system

2) Open up CMD on your computer and type:

cd\
cd sdk
cd tools
adb shell

(Make Disabled Directory) mkdir /system/app.disabled
(Disable an app) mv /system/app/APPNAME.apk /system/app.disabled/
(Enable an app) mv /system/app.disabled/APPNAME.apk /system/app/
(Remove an app) /system/bin/rm /system/app/APPNAME.apk


3) List of Disabled app:

Aud, if you haven't visited this site, Jon Eggers has some good info for getting started and removing some of the junk.

So I seem to be slow with this stuff and haven't been able to find instructions to do any of this on a Mac, though I do have Titanium Backup. Once/if I can do the recommended disable of apps, can I move them to say... my hard drive instead of storing them on my phone? Any help would be fantastic.

Thanks in advance

Thanks in advance
I have no idea what is available for the Mac but you can use root explorer on the phone and "move" the apps you are removing to your SD card then move to the PC.

I don't think Titanium lets you do that. It either deletes them or disables them. Many people prefer the freeze (or whatever it is called) option as opposed to deleting them. It leaves them there but stops them from running/loading.
