Question Disabling the arrow for the "mini apps"?

I am running Samsung's Android 4.1.1 (XXCLK7) on my P5110 (Wi-Fi European).

I am rooted (confirmed by Root Checker Basic).

I am trying to disable/remove the arrow that launches the "mini apps", as I keep tapping it accidentally when pressing Space on the keyboard - it's very frustrating!

I deleted the System/framework/minimode.jar file as suggested here using ASTRO File Manager and rebooted, but there is no change.

Any ideas?

EDIT: Sorted it. I opened File Explorer (with the root add-on) with chose "System (Root)" and deleted minimode.jar that way. Restarted the tablet - and it worked a treat

Hi, did you ever find out how to do this? I was looking for info on how to use different "mini apps" than are offered on the menu. The ones in the edit window just aren't what I'd like to use. If I can't, I'd just as soon eliminate it.

You might want to go back to the original post on XDA and ask over there. The last post is from someone who said he got it to go away, but didn't say how.

Sorry, yeah. I opened File Explorer (with the root add-on) with chose "System (Root)" and deleted minimode.jar that way. Restarted the tablet - and it worked a treat
