    Okay, i just recently bought my m835. I already managed to root it and put the super user app. I also got root explorer installer to remove the apps. I mounted on the "r/w" to delete the .apk files under /cust/metropcs/us/app. but each time i try delete an app a message comes out saying (cannot delete .apk file because the file system is read-only)

    ive tried everything.... i think, i already checked if my phone was really rooted or not with terminal emulator.... and yes it is rooted

    dont know if im doing something wrong, please help

    once you mount r/w superuser should ask to confirm i think then delete worked for me at least

    I need help and people here seem to know what they are doing. :) I have a Huawei M 835 and it has worked perfectly, no problems at all. The only problem is the newest update to the Market Place. It has worked fine until a few days ago. It will only load about 10 things on the page, then not show anymore. I've tried everything. I found a helpful site that said to uninstall updates, so I did. It worked great. But then the Marketplace updater automatically put them back in!!! How can I stop this? The update will NOT work on my phone. I love this phone otherwise.

    You have to make sure if you hit the R/W it changes to R/O, it took me a couple of times clicking it for it to take.

    Once I did I removed all of the bloatware no problem.

    You sure you rooted correctly?

    I never have to hit that button more than once, just hit, then hold down on an app and click Delete.

    Um... mount as read-write.

    I use "root explorer" the option is in the form of a Burton labled "r/w" in the header bar next to the current directory.
