    I use the media dock as a car dock. How do I uninstall the media dock app? I do not want it switching when docked (not even to the car dock, if there was a way to reverse them).

    I searched but came up empty.

    Thanks.

    This requires root. Files are in /system/app
    I just renamed the file to Dock.apk.bak in case I wanted to revert someday.

    Can this been accomplished through Astro or AndroZip? I am getting permission errors when I try to rename the file? The phone is rooted.

    root explorer gives the following error message when trying to rename: "Dock.apk cannot be renamed because the file system is read-only."

    He didn't mention this, but when you mount the system r/w, make sure to mount it back to r/o when you are done.

    I bought the verizon docking station that goes in the car, does that one have a magnet in it too?
