As someone mentioned earlier, the steps for uninstalling a built-in application are as follows: 1. Get a root prompt, either through adb or a terminal emulator on the phone. 2. Back up the whole app directory, perhaps using a file manager program since I don't think there's a cp command on the system by default. (I've long since installed Busybox, so I just use cp from that.) 3. Remount your system directory so it's writeable. (ALL commands in this post have a # in front of them; that's the # you should see on your screen already. Do NOT type it.) # mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblock4 /system 4. Change to the /system/app directory. # cd /system/app 5. Delete (or rename) the applications you no longer want. Here are commands for all of the applications you're unlikely to want. MySpace: # mv MySpace.apk MySpace.junk Socialite (called Aloha in some European phones): # mv Aloha_SNS.apk Aloha_SNS.junk Amazon Shopping App # mv amazon.2010.3.18.mshop_signed.aligned.apk amazon.2010.3.18.mshop_signed.aligned.junk Amazon MP3 Store # mv amazonmp3_1.6+23_signed_zipaligned.apk amazonmp3_1.6+23_signed_zipaligned.junk Facebook: # mv com.facebook.katana.apk com.facebook.katana.junk Visual VM: # mv VVM_01_00_19.apk VVM_01_00_19.junk ThinkFree Office (not sure why you'd want to remove this; it's pretty nice! I removed it just to make sure it doesn't break the phone, then put it back.) # mv thinkdroid.apk thinkdroid.junk That's as many apps as I dared to remove. Note: I *did* remove all these apps from my phone, and reboot just to make sure it still works. Yes, it still works. 6. (optional, do this only after you're happy with the phone now) Get the junk off your phone! # ls *.junk (At this point, make sure you recognize everything in that list.) # cp *.junk /sdcard # rm *.junk Note: Do NOT accidentally hit the enter key instead of the dot after typing "rm *" That would be very, very, very bad... the kind of mistake everyone makes once in their life, but with luck you can be the exception to that rule! If you want to know how to dig a little deeper and remove the built LG theme, I'm just not brave enough to help you there. Sorry! I did not remove any apps that seemed to me like they might be tied deeper into the core of the system.
