    Hello

    The phone is a samsung galaxy fit S 5670L (lantinamerican version)

    I changed the carrier OS to the gingerbread 2.3.4 (using odin-bini-rom)

    I rooted it with "FitGingerRoot.zip" (upgrade via sd)

    I installed "Root Explorer v2.16.apk". With this program I have been deleting some of the default apps that came with gingerbread, wich I do not use (clock, stock, weather, and other widgets, youtube, etc). It has Super User permission. To delete them I explore with the program in "/system/app", I find the apk by it's icon, and delete them with "long hold" and "delete" (first I mark "mount r/w").

    The problem I have is that when I deleted the calculator and the "Email" (an envelope with the "@" sign), the icons have not disappeared from the drawer after restarting the phone.

    The calculator was "/system/app/Calculator.apk". The "Email", I do not remember. The rest (10 or so) did not generate any problem.

    Does anyone know how to remove the icons, or why they did not disappear? (or what I do wrong?)

    Thank you.

    Problem solved

    I found 2 apk files in /system/app, named "LauncherCalculator"and "LauncherEmail". After I deleted them, the icons disappeared. I don't know if this were the icons themselves, or if this were something else, but I haven't had problems so far.

    If anyone knows what this files were, please comment.
