    I have recently rooted my devour but am new to this and cannot seem to remove the verizon bloatware. I first tried mv VCastVideos.apk VCastVideos.bak to simply rename but that would not work. Then I decided to use adb to pull the apps to my computer and then remove them from my phone. So I successfully pulled VCastMusic, VCastVideos and others and then began trying rm VCastMusic.apk and I tried rm -f VCastMusic.apk and i continuously got this:
    # rm -f VCastVideos.apk
    rm failed for -f, Read-only file system
    so then i tried chmod 777 VCastMusic.apk to give me all permissions and I got this:
    # chmod 777 VCastMusic.apk
    Unable to chmod VCastMusic.apk: Read-only file system

    If anyone has experienced this or knows how to fix it please help me.

    just for anyone who reads this post and is need of the same answer I figured it out on my own. If this happens to you just type:
    mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
    and then type your rm commands and it works just fine. remember to make backups somewhere though.

    Another method that is easier is an app called Titanium backup.
    It's greta for backing up your apps.

    But also, long press on any app, and uninstall.
    Just be carefl what you delete. It will let you delete anything. So make sure you know what it is.
