    Here's what to do, download Root Explorer and once opened, click the white button at the top that says mount as r/o. press it to mount to r/w. next scroll down to system. in the system folder click on 'app' press the menu button and select 'multi-select' from there just click on any app you want removed and either delete it for good or paste it to a folder in your SD car.

    Um, that's a bit more complex.

    Ally, how are you trying to delete in Ti? There are actually two methods you can use.

    Yeah, that's what I thought. Don't do that. Short press the app you want to remove. You'll see an option to uninstall. Do that instead and you won't have any issues.
