Default Incredible ? HTC Sense "Scene" Delete

How do you delete a custom HTC Sense "Scene" once you have saved it?

Thanks,

Matt

Just tap and hold on the custom scene you want to delete. Then choose delete.

It works only for the My Scenes section. You cannot delete original HTC Scenes.

Yeah, that was how I was doing it. Was not even trying to do it from the home screen.

I never even noticed you could get to scenes that way - always went in via Menu.

There are two types of scenes on my HTC incredible from Verizon: Scenes that I've created and the built-in scenes (Verizon Scene, HTC, Social, Work, Play, Travel, and Clean Slate)

Deleting the user defined scenes is fairly straightforward, although it's non-intuitive. Go to: Menu->Settings->Personalize->scenes. Long press on the scene to be deleted and a pop-up menu comes up asking to Rename or Delete. That's pretty easy.

Deleting the built-in, pre-loaded scenes is more work, but I discovered yesterday how to do it, so I wanted to share that here. There may be other ways to achieve the same end, but I'll show how I did it. Note, that you must have root permissions to do this, and if you break something, it's not my fault.

All of the scenes are stored in a SQLite database in /data/data/com.htc.launcher.databases/. The database is launcher.db. I used Root Exploer to go to /data/data/com.htc.launcher and copy the databases folder first for backup purposes. Then I used SQLite Editor to edit the launcher.db database file. There are 6 tables in the database:

android_metadata
favorites
favorites_backup
widget_item_types
widget_workspaces
widget_workspaces_backup

The table to edit is widget_workspaces. It'll have a list of all of the scenes, both user defined and built in. Long press on each scene to delete and a pop-up menu will be shown. Click Delete Record to remove the scene. The phone must be rebooted for the change to take effect. I removed all of the built-in scenes successfully with-out seeing any ill-effects from the change. Now, the only scenes on the phone are the ones I want and not the ones the verizon/htc want me to have.
