    To hide the icons press and hold. Once you feel the vibration feedback, like when typing on the keyboard, drag it down to the Remove that has replaced the Phone button. You can also move the applications around this way.

    To remove the applications completely you need to root your phone.

    Root your HERO and then follow these instructions:

    To remove an app from your phone you must have root access and type the following commands with SU access:

    type:
    mount -o rw,remount -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock3 /system
    Then type:
    cd /system/app
    then you can type "ls" to list the contents of the directory.

    To remove an app the "rm" (Remove) cmd will precede the app name each time. For example: rm Sprint_Nscar.apk (and then hit enter)


    Thanks to VoXHTC on XDA.

    Is there any way to hide the icons when I go to the full list of applications? What about disabling them from starting up by themselves, like Citisearch.

    Short of doing whatever it takes to remove the programs; no you can't hide them.

    Although you SHOULD be doing "whatever it takes to remove the programs" because you'll be alot happier with your phone.

    After rooting, might i suggest Fresh 2.1.2. I have it, and love it. Chea.

    +1 Thanks for the code. I used an App Root Explorer for $3 and it is extraordinarily easy to use. It gives you easy access to root files straight from your phone.
