    Make sure you have a rooted devise!!!

    1. Download Terminal Emulator from the Android Market

    2. Type the following commands

    3. su (Press enter, will give SuperUser permissions)

    4. mount -o remount,rw -t yaffs2 /dev/block/mtdblk3 /cust

    5. ls /cust/cricket/us/app (brings up list of stock apps)

    6. To remove a particular app, use the following command:
    rm /cust/cricket/us/app/appname.apk

    7. Make sure you type the app name exactly how it looks on the list *capital letters, lowercase, and numbers. I noticed if you use all lowercase it does not recognize the app*

    8. Use the following command to make the apps directory again read-only:
    mount -o remount,ro /dev/mtdblock3 /cust


    Message me if you need any help.

    I followed these instructions and it came out "mount: Invalid Argument" on the first mount.
    Any idea why?
