    Purchased hTc Desire in Qatar. Came installed with additional islamic software (Al-Moazin, iQuran and Hijri Calendar) I have no need for these app's. Is it possible to remove them from my sys?

    You need to be rooted to do that. One you've done that you can either do it thro root explorer or adb.

    I'm wondering about this as I thought you needed to be rooted too. However I'm not rooted but using MyPhoneExplorer I have access to the system app files and there is an option to delete. I posted a question about it here http://androidforums.com/htc-desire/204183-phone-explorer.html#post1817608 I'm not sure if it works or not as I haven't been brave enough to try it yet.

    yep if you're a comp nerd:p you can you can root it if not try;

    "If you do have an HTC Desire and want to disable this feature, click on the Al Moazin software and ensure that the speaker shown there is on silent. Then hit settings and make sure each of the timings are unchecked!":D

    Even if you're rooted, that option won't work. You.need to be s-off too. Cdma users get s-off at root however.

    It may look like it works with normal root but the app gets replaced.


    If you're rooted and don't want a custom rom or s-off, you have to use adb

    I couldn't find it in Doha, so I bought mine in Dubai last week.

    Same problem, which initially woke me just after 4 am with al-Moazin screaming out for a prayer. I simply shut it up, disabled the speaker and leave it running, as it seems to take up only little space.

    The other 2 apps I left as they are a novelty factor in Europe. :)

    Could you post a follow-up if you managed to root and throw out what you did not want?

    You can just debrand it, no need to root.

    You need to create a goldcard first. There are some debranding threads somewhere in this forum.

    But my phone is not branded.. i found out that those apps are preinstalled in he arabic rom... So do you think reflashing my phone with a WWE stock htc rom will solve my problem and will give me a clean state phone with no arabic apps ang languages?
