    I am trying to remove the at&t from my (new) Xperia X10. I have installed universal android, superuser.apk, Titanium Backup, and Android Mate. when I try to uninstall the bloatware, my phone says the uninstall was unsuccessful. I have read that I should go to settings--applications-- and click unknown apps...the problem is that I do not have that option. I figure I can't be the first to run into this problem.

    Help!!!

    Hi.

    Are you using Titanium to remove your apps?

    Are they still there after rebooting?

    Not too sure then, a reboot usually clears the icons so not sure what to suggest. Reading some of the comments on Androlib about Android Mate don't sound too cracking, so could be a conflict. Try uninstalling that and see. TB works perfect for me.

    Tried that still nothing. Do you have att x10?
    Is there a Unknown sources option in your application settings?

    Not got a clue then. I have an unbranded X10i but know AT&T phones don't have the option, but that shouldn't affect removing apps as it's only for allowing non Market apps to be installed.

    My AT&T x10 didn't show the "Unknown Sources" option until it was successfully rooted. It took a couple days fiddling, several posts on this board (Thanks again, x10iUser) before I got the the rooting to stick using this method, on x10iUser's suggestion.

    Titanium Backup is now running on my phone & there's no more AT&T apps. I even removed some extra apps per the steps at the bottom of the linked thread.
