    Oh.... So that's why root explorer fails on DInc...man, I thought I just sucked. Well, I guess that's a possibility too.

    Maybe we'll get it someday. I'm sure it isn't a priority right now though.

    You can't modify /system from a booted phone (i.e. not in recovery). Period. And until someone is willing to release a new HBOOT (with all of the risks that entails), it will remain so.

    You can delete "pretty much whatever you want"? Then you must not want to delete anything in /system.

    Even without nand unlocked you can still mount /system as r/w and delete things. But youll see that if you close root explorer and open back up, whatever you just deleted is still there.

    I would guess that the developer of Root Explorer neglected to check the return status of unlink().

    No offense to the op but it sure would be nice if threads like this would have a question mark in the title of thread.

    Funny you say this... I just did exactly that... and the APK i deleted... IS GONE ... i even adb shelled into it, ls -l /system/app FILE IS GONE. Rebooted recovery, adb shell , FILE IS GONE!!

    SO either MY PHONE defies all that we know, OR you CAN DELETE ITEMS with root explorer! Deleting a file may utilize different permissions? I dont know but i do know that I DELETED THAT FILE WITH ROOT EXPLORER!

    Or you just don't know what you're doing. You CANNOT go into you /system/app folder and actually delete it, using root explorer. Like someone said above me, you can hit R/W and delete the app, but it doesn't actually delete it.
