    Just successfully rooted my Xperia X10.
    Want to know how I can remove pre-installed applications like Quadrapop & Moxier?
    Also is there a way to add multiple home screens after rooting?

    Use adb shell and type something like:

    @adb shell rm /system/app/mox*

    I think thats it.

    Did you do the one click root or the full root that is on XDA?

    If you did the full XDA root then it would have removed them for you here is what was cleared from my phone when rooting

    @adb shell rm /system/app/off*
    @adb shell rm /system/app/play*
    @adb shell rm /system/app/track*
    @adb shell rm /system/app/EManual*
    @adb shell rm /system/app/SemcIME*
    @adb shell rm /system/app/AndroidQuadrapop*
    @adb shell rm /system/app/SEMCTouchPal*
    @adb shell rm /system/app/se-supp*
    @adb shell rm /system/app/Fota*
    @adb shell rm /system/app/Launch*
    @adb shell rm /system/app/mox*
    @adb shell rm /system/app/FaceRecognition*
    @adb shell rm /data/app/*.zip
    @adb shell rm -r /etc/semc/startupshow
    @adb shell rm -r /etc/semc/preset/app

    When it comes time to root mine, I think I will just keep Quadrapop anyways.
    I play with it when the battery gets down under 20% and it chews up battery like crazy, so I quit around 5% left. This way I get a deep charge on the battery in a timely and convenient manner - when I am going to bed, at home for a while, or will be stationary for about 8 hours...

    Install Titanium Backup and remove whatever you want, no need for adb. :)

    I assume for Titanium Backup you need the pro version to remove apps? The free version doesn't appear to have any options to do that. I turned on Chuck Norris mode but I don't see any commands/buttons to actually do the removing...

    I only have the free version and i can remove. As long as you have superuser to give it permission, you can freeze, backup, remove, restore apps.

    Hi.

    No, you just tap on the app and uninstall, long pressing gives you other options which is what you're doing I assume.

    Okay, please assume I'm a complete idiot (even though I'm not)...

    Rooted my X10i, rebranded to Nordic, installed 2.1, rooted again as soon as I could. Now I'm having huge problems getting rid of Moxier, even using Titanium.

    When I long-press in Titanium, I get the option to uninstall Moxier, which I select. So far so good. I get a screen saying my phone will reboot twice and the application will be removed permanently. I start the process...

    I get one reboot and Moxier still sticking there like a bad rash. I've tried about 20 times, I've tried waiting up to 10 minutes for the second reboot, I've tried not unlocking my SIM...I don't know what else to try.

    WTF am I doing wrong? Someone help me, please...I've hated this Moxier crap from day one and I want it gone!

    Hi.

    You don't long press, you just tap for the uninstall option...

    ...and not sure why it's rebooting either, it should just remove which ever app you're selecting and take you back to TB.

    Thank you so much! Worked like a charm. I'm not sure why I thought I needed to long-press and use the "Force Remove App by recovery exploit" option, but that's what I was doing wrong.

    You're welcome. :) I think long pressing catches a lot of people out.

    Quick question for the more knowledgeable folks out there. What's the difference between deleting apps using Titanium Backup when USB Debugging is ticked or unticked? I get the message saying it's unsafe when I have it unticked...not exactly sure why it's unsafe...
