    This is a system app. Located in /system/app/marketupdater.apk. You can use any root file explorer to navigate there and delete it.

    Aggie deleting apk's is a BAD idea. freezing or renaming them is much safer...:D

    For the people with more experience, like us, we can just pull them from the zip files if we need them again. But for beginners I think it's best they stick with renaming or freezing them.

    It's not a bad idea.

    shoot, all I do is delete apks. But then again i have them all backed up on my computer.
