    i installed launcherpro from ud 8.0 but it wont update from the market now. I have tried removing it from /system using adb commands rm /system/app/launcherpro.apk and rm /system/app/com.fede.launcher but every time i try it says it doesnt exist.
    I know it exist from looking at in /system/app from astro. What commands should i use i really dont know. dont say use root explorer i cant buy it

    try rebooting your phone. after removing an app in this method rebooting the phone helps the system to recognize that it has been deleated. then redownload from market
