    Hi,

    I've rooted my Spica and I'm looking for ways to get rid of unnecessary apps like Facebook. So far the only way I've found is by using Android commander to go to the system/app or data/app directory and delete the respective .apk file. Is this a good/safe method or there are better/safer ones?

    Thanks.

    Some apps you can delete through Market/AppBrain, others you'll have to use Commander... I think anyway? Still haven't rooted my phone yet...

    Use titanium backup. Find the app, click delete and BAM! it's gone.
