Default (Solved) Launchzone removal?

Is there a way to remove the launchzone widget? Please don't just recommend a different launcher, I just want to know if its possible.

I personally find it useful as I can assign any app to any of the 4 outside zones and the Icons change. The Setup menu can be accessed directly using the Icon at the center right. For example you can place your favorite reader in the Read zone. I also put the Power Control Widget at the top and any App I am using a lot for some special purpose temporarily below the Launch Widget.

You can minimise the annoyance by using another screen as you main home one.
What's the problem with Go launcher or something similar.
It isn't a permanent change you can select it each time you boot up or have it default.

Please be more thankful of the help you get. If you continue to act in this manner you will scare off the few left who might be able to help. The best course of action is to just let members post there helpful suggestions until you see the one that has the info you seek. This will encourage more members to help you if you have any other problems, instead of avoiding answering them. You can attract more bees with Honey.
Just a helpful suggestion. Do as you wish.

I know I know. I normally don't get responses for a while with other problems I need to be fixed. I'm impatient very much but normally I'm patient with people on here.

This is a fairly new device. Give it some time and more people will populate this forum. You have the advantage in that you can help them with all the knowledge you acquire about the tablet. As far as getting rid of a system app (launchzone widget), you will have to root the device to do so.
When you figure out what to use and how to use it, post it in the All Things Root sub-forum and I will get it in a All Things Root Guide(I will have to add this once the device is rooted).

You have to be able to access the system partition where the apps is stored. To get to that you need root access. Weather temporary or permanent you can only gain access to the system with root access.

I'm not sure what exploit will get you root. Some have a Shell Root option which will give you a temp root that goes away on the next reboot. Something to think about.

Some exploits have an option "Shell Root" others say Temp Root" some there is only "Permenant root". You will have to check which Root exploits your tablet can use and then check if it/they have the "Shell Root" or "Temp Root" option.
