Removing Icons from App Tray

    Okay, so I used Titanium Backup to freeze, then uninstall some of the bloatware apps on my DX. However, the icons are still found in the app tray and clicking them generates a FC.

    Is there any way to get rid of the icons permanently? I know I can hide them with LPP but that only hides them; I want to eliminate them.

    Any ideas?

    Root Explorer, system, app, Click the Mount R/W to change to Mount R/O.

    Search for the icons you need to remove, RENAME the .apk to .bak

    Change the Mount R/O to Mount R/W and exit, you should be good to go.

    Thanks for the response. As it turns out, this was user error - the apps that were left and giving me the FC were in fact only frozen, not uninstalled. Once I uninstalled them with TB they disappeared from the app tray.

    Good to hear that, Have fun now :)
    although you will be better loading a clean ROM, IMHO ;)

    If you use LauncherPro you can also remove them from your app tray
