    I downloaded the lock screen widget from the market today. However, I do not want it anymore and I cannot remove it, keeps saying 'Unistall not successfull' Anyone any ideas how to get rid of it?

    There are apps in Market that specialize in uninstalling.

    But that issue can usually be remedied by going into the application manager to uninstall the app/widget.

    Menu > settings > applications > manage applications.

    I found this at the app site:

    "Before uninstalling widget make sure to disable admin permissions in Location & security > Select device admin > Lock Screen Widget."

    This should work but doesn't for the LG Optimus and several other devices. For whatever reason it is impossible to remove it from Device Administrators thus making in impossible to uninstall. The developer is well aware of the issue but has failed to address the problem as far as I can tell.

    Ty we need more people like you on this forum instead of idiots who complains about how the subject was discussed plenty of times and tells the questioner to go f*** off and go search it on forum.

    if you are rooted then use titanium back up to uninstall.
    It works 100%
