    Is there any way to delete apps that the phone originally comes with? Also, how do you close an app when it's not in use? I tried to force quit it in the application settings of the phone but the icon is still in the task manager.

    I am unaware of a way to uninstall apps that come pre-loaded.

    Download 'Task Manager' for your latter problem. Great piece of kit. (Barcode attached.)

    There is actualy 3 ways I have found to remove the pre-installed bloatware, they all need root permissions though (if you don't have root but still want to do this then get Universal AndRoot).


    1. The easiest way is to use Root Explorer from the market but this isn't free.


    2. Use the Android Debug Bridge (ADB) in the Android SDK for free instructions here to perform an "adb remout" (to mout the file system R/W) and "adb rm" (to unintall the app) commands after connecting your device to your PC via USB (enable USB debugging under "settings/applications/development") and starting the ADB server from the Windows command prompt or under Linux using the Terminal, navigate to your android-sdk/tools.

    2a. You can alternitavly perform an "adb pull" command to backup any of the .apk's you decide to remove incase you would like to restore them at a later date (removing some can cause problems).


    3. Using the Android Terminal Emulator. This way is free too, All you have to do is "su" (for root access[superuser]) "cd /data/app" and do a "ls" (to see the list of installed .apk's) then a "rm" (to remove it)


    Hope this helps someone.

    @Mods, maybe sticky this thread?

    Depends what you want, mate. I'd recommend one of the YouTube video downloaders, so you can watch videos without incurring data charges. I also have the ASTRO File Manager, which is the best by a mile for me and the task manager mentioned above. Facebook, Seesmic (twitter), Opera Mini (currently trying out SkyFire beta, which is good), Androrb (if you use Orb streaming), Barcode Scanner (for scanning barcodes like the one above), eBay, myPlayer (BBC iPlayer, probably UK-only), ShopSavvy, SMS Popup, SyncMyPix (if you have imported all contacts from Facebook), Xbox Live Status Widget (for Xbox 360 users.)

    They're the ones I currently have, along with a few more personal-preference ones. (TNA Wrestling, Soccer Livescores, Wallpaper Set & Save)

    ANGRY BIRDS LITE BETA (sometimes forced close when starting)

    Asphault 3d streetrules is sketchy may just be where i got it from but the graphics were very glitchy

    maybe with the 2.1 upgrade (if that ever happens) the others will be available

    speedforge wont work, it loads fine but there is no button for acceleration
    i will edit this from time to time with the games i've tried

    @soulclaimed
    apparently there is an app for that and on android 2.2 you can do it on the mobile without installing any apps.

    Hello, I have a problem with my LG GT540 smartphone. I need some help.

    yesterday i upgraded my phone to Android Eclair, and today i can't download applications at all! Actually the process starts, but it stands stable at the point where it says "Starting download", though no positive results are coming!!

    I need some help, it's an emergency!
    thank you

    I tried the Factory reset, and it didn't work either. What do you mean applications form sd card? I have no applications on my phone since I updated my phone to Android Eclair (except from those that are automatically installed)
    Do you have any other ideas?
    I need help!!:/

    I had the same problem.
    After you factory reset what e-mail address do you sign in with into the app market?
    It needs to be your gmail account or it will not let you download any apps it only gives you the message 'Starting Download'

    Yes, i have the same problem. How to set an app installation to my SD card?
    or is there a way to move an app that already installed in my phone storage to my SD card?

    You'll need a rooted phone to be able to do this. Have a look at this thread Rooting your GT540 This may answer a few questions.

    Root your phone and you can delete anything

    But don't touch any Google apps, they are vital to work the phone.r
