Default anybody use root explorer?

i see the other forums have a thread or two on this but thought i'd ask fellow moment users if anyone is using root explorer to remove installed apps. i have used it with much success so far and even reinstalled one or two. just curious what you guys think is the best way to do things of this nature and what all can be done with this app without too much concern.

i've used droid explorer from my laptop, which is pretty user friendly. haven't played with root explorer yet though.

I tried droid explorer but I run 64 bit vista and it won't install. I have read it works on 64 bit 7 though.

Root explorer is on the market and so far is working well for me. I am surprised noone else is using it.

I just got root access today and Ive already uninstalled some apps using root explorer. Its so easy, just click and delete. This is the easiest method for me since I primarily use a Mac.

ok, NOMster, I bought root explorer on your recommendation, but I don't know how to use it to remove stock apps. Can you walk me through it? Thank you.

open root explorer then scroll down and click on system. then click on app. there are all the stock apps. long press on any of them and it will bring up a menu with multiple options one of which is move. after clicking on move just use the back button to get to the main root explorer list (in the upper right it shows where you are. you want to get back to / . then scroll down to sd card open it and the lower left option is paste. one thing. when you use this method it changes permissions. so if you want to reload any apps after moving them out this way. then after placing back into the apps folder, long click and choose "permissions" which will allow you to change the setup to match your other apps.

warning:if you remove vsuite (the nuance sytem) to the sd card, you will have to pull the battery, because it will go into a force close loop. but when you put your battery back in, it should be fine. then you can go into root explorer/sd card/ and long click any apps you want to permanently delete. if any.


i was also wondering how this would work to back up the data folder to sd, but i'm scared to try it.

well, I've tried Ti Backup, Droid explorer and even c: prompt, but it seems I can't connect to the phone... Ti Backup says I don't have Super User rights, Droid explorer doesn't detect the phone, same with cmd prompt... when going to USB debug mode, I windows vista asks me for the drivers, when I already have them installed (custom rom through sprint update)... tried "installing" some new ones, but couldn't find the correct ones... help? I feel like I'm missing a step or three, but can't find my answer no matter how long I'm searching here and sdx...

when you get the $ sign, type in "su" - and see if you get the #... if you do, then you have super user access.

yeah, I did that shortly after typing my reply... thanks for the help! still for some reason Ti Backup doesn't work...

"Busybox works but the 'su' command does not elevate to root: 'whoami' reports 'whoami: unknown uid 10050' instead of uid 0. I think your 'Superuser Whitelist' system app does not work. Please check with your ROM provider."

I guess I should pm joey?

I use root explorer as well. I know cmd now but didn't starting and it was worth it. When switching ROM's some didn't want to work with Mybackup and TiBackup so I was happy with my choice. I will probably continue to use it as well.

You have to root your phone first. When using root explorer, tap the "mount r/o" button to enable move/delete of protected system files.

Default a backup folder vanishes

Hello,
I'm all new to this rooting thing and have tried it just a few hours ago.
Rooting went well, Root explorer worked fine, and I moved some of apps to a backup folder. (which I created for the purpose and whose location was /backup_apps)

I thought everything was fine, yet a few hours later I found that this backup folder was suddenly gone. My phone works fine without those apps, and I can get a backup from a friend who is using the same model as mine, but I just don't feel comfortable with not knowing what i did wrong.

I can only guess that it might have been so because I put the backup folder not within the app folder but in the mother folder along with cache, config, data and other folders.

Has anybody experienced the same problem? or does anyone know what caused it? a piece of advice will be very much appreciated.

(sorry for my english, I'm not native to the language)

Put your backups on the sd card next time. You probably put them in a cache folder where they got deleted by Androids housekeeping. Unless you really know what you are doing, beyond removing "crapware" from system/apps, you should leave main memory alone.

K, got Root Explorer installed and seems to work fine. Now how do I remove the shortcuts off the main home pages once i've deleted the program. Like Amazon MP3 player, i've removed it, but can't get rid of the shortcut.

Do i have to root the phone before using this root explorer? I have no idea how to root a phone and have read alot about it, and frankly most of it confuses and scares me, I don't want to screw up the phone and delete some stuff I didn't want to. I just want to remove a few sprint apps. Can I just buy this app and use it? Or do i have to be rooted?

So by using Root Explorer, removing one of the original apps supplied with the phone is as simple as deleting the apk in the /system/app folder?

Except that I can't delete an app file because of R/W properties. So is this where rooting comes into play?

Correct on both counts. Root Explorer is really of limited use if you're not rooted. Once you can R/W, be careful what you delete. I suggest moving to the sd card instead. If you need to restore a .apk, all you need to do is copy it back and correct it's properties to match the other apk's in /system/app.

Default LG Ally

I have rooted, have superuser privileges but having difficulties with Root explorer on my ally. I granted Rt Exp superuser privileges.
I am having difficulty manuevering around in root explorer. I go to r/w and can pull up files, some with names like amazon and facebook, the ones I want to uninstall.
Often it gives me an option to Delete, which leads me to believe it is a file and not an app. When I do find an Uninstall option, I do it and it says it is uninstalled, but it is still there. Sometimes it appears they actually do uninstall and disappear, but then the app comes back.
I need help using root explorer correctly obviously.
I was also wondering if GTalk is necessary as it seems to be running alot, sync service as well and alarm service. Skype used to be a problem but it has disappeared and I thinki it is the only successful uninstall I have done.
Anyone have any tips for using root explorer or a better way to delete stock apps? I deleted skype using terminal emulator but then also had issues with it not deleting amazon, facebook etc?

I think I see instructions on how to use Root Exp. I need Mount RW! DUH. Thanks for the move to SD card instructions too!
I also wanted to ask if anyone has removed AccountandSyncSetting.apk, Aloha, ba_Client, google.android.marvin,soundback and talkback, gtalk, hidden menus, My Verizon, PICOtts, Talk.apk or talkprovider.apk, Telephony provider, Thinkdroid.apk?

I have a ton of stock apps and am on PPlus. It eats up my limited data the first day!
I also have over 10 calendars and clocks and digital alarm systems! and I mean like 15 calendars, 10 clocks and 5 digital alarms! I use only the basic calendar but have no idea which one it is in this list!

HELP! My droid is drowning in useless apps!

warning:if you remove vsuite (the nuance sytem) to the sd card, you will have to pull the battery, because it will go into a force close loop. but when you put your battery back in, it should be fine. then you can go into root explorer/sd card/ and long click any apps you want to permanently delete. if any.


i was also wondering how this would work to back up the data folder to sd, but i'm scared to try it.

When i click back, i dont have an option to open sd card???? it just gives me the long press options. it has a little golden star shield, and doesnt have a folder icon like the rest. it says sdcard-copy and the next says sdcard-ext-copy w the same icon. so when i hit paste, my app (test app was vcast_tones it just pastes to that same list. help?
