    anyone know if i can uninstall the stock messaging off of the phone completely ? im running handcent and while i have the notifications on the stock one disabled its still there and still recieves and builds up messages

    i would like to clean the phone up of everything i dont need and wanted to know if it was safe to remove this before i did this.

    anyone done it yet ?

    Sorry I'm not too sure how safe it is, but I think the app is mms.apk if u wanted to give it a shot it wouldn't hurt as long as you remember to do a NAND back-up prior. Best of luck.

    well i got rid of it, and did it with out the NAND back up...


    texts work fine, but i have lost my ability to send/receive pictures

    anyway to add it back in with out the NAND backup ? im looking into doing this now....

    i might just wipe and reinstall the rom and go from there.

    If you can find the apk somewhere you should be able to adb push it to the phone

    like said above you can get the .apk and push it back to your phone, another option would be to find a mms fix, and see if that works..

    OOOH maybe that's why I can't get picture messages!!!

    I guess I have to push mms.apk back to my phone.

    Addendum: pushing Mms.odex and Mms.apk to /system/app/ from Ivan's 1.0 flash .zip file, then rebooting the phone,

    now I can receive MMS.

    I have not know, literally since May 15 or so, that I was not receiving ANY MMS. Wow.

    Thank you.

    You have to open Ivan 1.0's ROM (I use 7-Zip to open it), and push Mms.apk and Mms.odex with the command line push

    (from the tools folder)
    adb remount
    adb push Mms.apk /system/app/Mms.apk
    adb push Mms.odex /system/app/Mms.odex
    adb reboot

    (have someoen send u a pix msg to test)

    had no problems pushing the Mms.apk file.... pushed the Mms.odex file afterwards and now the phone is stuck in a endless reboot cycle
