    If it was baked into a ROM, then it's possibly not in the standard location, so you might have to manually remove it.

    The premium version is well worth it, makes flashing roms and mods super quick and easy. Just an FYI.

    You might have to delete it via adb. That said, it's well worth the $4 for the premium version, and it supports probably the most important dev on the android scene.

    Something like:
    adb remount
    rm /system/app/RomManager.apk
    pm uninstall com.koushikdutta.rommanager
    adb remount

    understandable about supporting the guy but i get along just fine with normal clockwork and doing my roms that way. id buy it if i felt i had a need for it. i appreciate these people and their work no doubt. hell i donated like 10 bucks to adry and i dont use his roms anymore.

    it just makes me wanna kick puppies and infants when i cant uninstall something that should be uninstallable.

    thats understandable, but you can install any rom with this app, not just his.

    if you updated virtuous it is now baked in as of 2.7

    Edit> however you can remove it by using adb or get root explorer app and delete it from system apps

    For those of you who get "'pm' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file."

    adb remount
    adb shell rm /system/app/ROMManager.apk
    adb shell pm uninstall com.koushikdutta.rommanager
    adb remount

    Worked beautifully for me. Thanks DizkoDan!
