    Hi guys,

    I recently downloaded a new Skin which was an apk. file. After saving to my SDCard I then installed it using Root Explorer.

    However, I would now like to uninstall this Skin but an unsure how to do this.

    Any suggestions?

    Many thanks,

    Matt

    Can you not just go into settings > personalize to change the skin and then use root explorer to delete the file?

    That would be the obvious thing to do, but i don't think deleting the apk. will remove the actual skin from my 'personalize options'.

    The apk installed the skin to my phone so I assume that i need to do something to uninstall it?

    cheers,

    seeing as it's an apk, does the skin show up if you go into settings > applications > manage applications > all?

    hmm, okay. Try going into personalize > skins then press the 'menu' button and you should have an option to delete?

    No option to delete but I have sorted it now anyway. I found the apk using Titanium Backup and just uninstalled using that. Simple in the end!

    Thanks for all the help anyway :)
