    I searched but couldn't find an answer on here or on a general search of the interweb. I flashed the Icarus ROM to my phone last night and everything's working GREAT! But I expected that since this ROM is free of crapware, that the YouTube app would be gone too. I don't want it because it doesn't find half the videos I search for. When I search from the web browser I find them just fine.

    So I downloaded Titanium Backup (free version) and selected the Uninstall option. It completed successfully but I still see the YouTube app in the app drawer. I thought well maybe it didn't completely remove it, but when I run the app the damn thing still works, like nothing was ever removed.

    How can I get this off my phone?? Titanium no longer shows anything having to do with YouTube, so I'm at a loss for what to do next.


    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!

    I deleted the YouTube app from my stock 2.1 Cricket OS through Root Explorer and it was under the System folder. Check there and if you don't see it, try using the search function in Root Explorer.
